We have recently acquired 14 new electronic textbooks through the Stat!Ref platform. The Stat!Ref platform lets you search simultaneously across multiple textbooks. To get to it, simply go to the Hirsh Library website, click on the “Books” tab then click on “Stat!Ref.” Of course, you can also access these books individually by searching for them by title on JumboSearch.

If you’ve done dental searches on Stat!Ref or JumboSearch in the past the results will now look different – in a good way! All 14 of our new purchases were published within the last 5 years, and they cover everything from exercises to maintain or improve hand dexterity to dental codes to caries to implants to periodontitis and TMD. Here are a few titles we want to highlight in particular. You can find the full list at the end of the post.

First our most unique purchase, Dancing Hands. This book from 2013 looks at ways to improve ergonomics in the treatment room and improve manual dexterity of the dentist.

Need an introduction to materials used in restorative dentistry and how to select what? Check out Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry: Material Selection and Technique with entire chapters on composites, ceramics, impression taking, adhesives, posts, and more.

Treatment of TMDs: Bridging the Gap Between Advances in Research and Clinical Patient Management looks at orofacial pain, particularly in relation to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).  The biology of orofacial pain, as well as the biomechanics of the TMJ are established first, followed by diagnostic technology and therapeutic options ranging from injectables to pharmacologic management, including responsible use of opioids.

Here are all fourteen new acquisitions in alphabetical order. Just click on the title to browse the book on the Stat!Ref platform.

We want to extend a warm welcome to the new UG students starting today and a belated but no less enthusiastic welcome to our new PG students! The library has quiet places for studying (and naps), collaboration space, and a café, which means, yes, you can eat and drink here.

  • Have a question? Drop by the Service Desk on the 4th floor and chat to the librarian on call.
  • Want more extended one-on-one help? Schedule an appointment with the dental librarian, Amanda Nevius.
  • Speaking of Amanda, be sure to bookmark the Dental Resources she’s put together for TUSDM. It includes goodies like information on Board and Licensure Exam study resources, how to find Materials Research, and tips on conducting excellent EBD searches.
  • Forget your charger and your phone’s about to die? Check one out at the Service Desk. For that matter, check out a laptop, a VGI cable, model teeth, real skulls, and more!

We wish you nothing but success here at Tufts and everyone at the library looks forward to getting to know you better!

Join us Wednesday, December 2nd at noon in SK516 for our second Sweet Talks @ Hirsh event! We’re excited to welcome Dean Nadeem Karimbux. Bring your lunch and enjoy hearing about Dean Karimbux’s career path, the choices he made along the way, how his field has changed during his career, and advice he has for the next generation of professionals that we are educating here at Tufts—all in a casual, conversational manner with time for a Q&A.

Coffee, tea, and dessert will be provided by the library!

Welcome back everybody!

As you settle in to classes, it’s time for the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine to get Back to BaSiCsss! We hope you had a restful break, but the Basic Science/Clinical Science Spiral Seminar Series is back and kicking into high gear already.

The Hirsh Health Sciences Library is offering a workshop just for D’16s, to help refresh your memories about what you learned about research and finding evidence in your Epidemiology course. We’re offering the class four times over the next few months, and we hope to see you all as you meet with your groups and prepare your research questions, parse your PICOs, and find your evidence!

Dr. Charles B. Millstein, D62, recently wrote an article appearing in the Winter 2013 issue of the Journal of the Massachusetts Dental Society. The cover-story gives a historical overview of the many local impacts of the Gies Report, published in 1926 and reporting on a four-year survey of dental education in the United States and Canada. One of the impacts was the forming of the graduate teaching program at the University of Rochester, where six deans of Dental Medicine at Tufts earned their degrees.

Dr. Millstein is a 1962 graduate of the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, serves on the Dental Alumni Executive Council, is an Assistant Clinical Professor, the historian of the Massachusetts Dental Society, and a practicing endodontist in Cambridge, MA.
