Watch The Dental Band Rock Out

What happens when dental students have way too much time on their hands? Well, lets have a look at their music video on Youtube.

Oh, by the way, I have no idea what they’re saying because it’s in German, but you’ll probably be familiar with the background tracks.

Weekend Dental Links: Part I

It’s time for another installment of “cool dental links“. The links are still “cool”, but I’m going to change the name to “Weekend Dental Links” because, you guessed it, I’ll be featuring them on the weekends. I’m only human, so I like to relax a bit on the weekends, and this should give you some reading material while you’re hopefully relaxing on the weekends as well. So, without further ado…

Guess the Celebrity Smile

As much as I try to avoid celebrity talk on Dental Heroes(plenty of other blogs for that, right?), I couldn’t pass up telling you about a quiz I just found on the ABC News website called, “Guess the Celebrity Smile”.

5 More Dental Blogs You Should Be Read

Some of you may remember a post I wrote a while back titled “5 Fantastic Dental Blogs You Should Be Reading.” With all of the great dental blogs out there these days, I think it’s time to add to the list.
