Endodonic Therapy

OK, that’s a mouthful. So what did the focus group come up with?


For years I’ve wondered why it hasn’t occurred to at least four out of five dentists that there might be a better name for endodonic therapy than “root canal.” Please submit your suggestions in the comment box below. I’ll forward them to the American Dental Association.

Eighty Four, PA

There was an old monk whom I’d see on a daily basis back, oh, thirty some odd years ago. We’d have a similar encounter each and every day. For me it was repetitive; for him each exchange was brand new. He was familiar with Western Pennsylvania, my home region, and he somehow knew about Eighty Four, PA, which was not far at all from my hometown, Canonsburg, PA. Not surprisingly, the headquarters of 84 Lumbar is located right there in Eighty Four, PA.

At any rate, every time I’d see this old buck, the conversation went one of two ways. Half the time it went as illustrated below. When it didn’t go that way, he’d ask me if I was from Canonsburg. I’d say yes. Then he’d say: “I was just talking to a guy from Canonsburg.”

Internet Summary and iPad Update

My iPad’s getting a facelift; well, a whole face transplant. I dropped it a few days ago, and it’s spending the night with Mark at Speedy Computers, in his iCracked capacity. He’s putting on a new screen. I had to use my old iPad for this post, which has an older version of Paper 53 on it, fortunately. Ok, that’s the iPad update.

Here’s this week’s internet summary, and I hope you’ve been keeping up (click here if you’re behind):
