Periodontists Dr. John Paul Gallardo and William P. Lamas will be hosting their next study club in Miami, FL for Dental ED on May 4, 2017 at CIBO Wine Bar in Coral Gables, FL. The educational event will bring together some of the area’s most respected dentists in restorative and general dentistry. The May study club will begin with dinner and social hour at 6pm and the presentation will start at 7 p.m. Once a quarter, Dr. Gallardo and Dr. Lamas host the Miami Study Club to bring the latest innovations in dentistry to South Florida. Both Dr. Gallardo and Dr. Lamas are authorized periodontists to provide continuing education to other dentists. This course’s objectives include learning to combine composites and veneers to preserve dentin, rubber dam placement, difficult case studies, and a conservative approach in management. The course is also designed to stress the essential value of breaking infection at all levels so that doctors attending can return to their offices equipped with practical infection control in the dental setting. “This platform for collaborating with our colleagues allows us to share pearls of wisdom with each other in an intellectually safe and trusting environment,” said Dr. Gallardo. “This ultimately leads to better patient care, improvement, and the evolution of even the most time-proven treatment strategies.” The Miami Study Club is part of Dental ED, an international organization that brings together a wide range of dental professionals to further their education. Each session starts with the latest in dental technologies, trends, and research. Dental ED was launched in 2004 and has become a leader in dentistry training and education by offering study club courses to professionals around the world. Using advances in technology, teach session connects educators to dentists using interactive-web conferencing technology. Dr. Gallardo and Dr. Lamas bring patients from all over the world more than 25 years of experience in the field of implant dentistry and periodontics. Dr. Gallardo attended the University of Miami, New York University, and Boston University. Dr. Lamas is an alumnus of Barry University, the Florida College of Dentistry, and Baylor College of Dentistry-TAMUS. Both doctors are highly respected in the fields of periodontics and implant dentistry. The office offers patients, laser periodontal therapy, dental implants, sedation dentistry, the innovative All-on-4®, as well as gummy smile correction and wisdom teeth removal. The upcoming study club will be held at CIBO Wine Bar, located at 45 Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. Dinner and social hour will begin at 6 p.m. and the educational presentation will follow at 7 p.m. Attending doctors will be awarded with 7.75 continuing education credits. Anyone interested in attending should RSVP by contacting Amelia Gonzalez at Amelia(at)miamiperio(dot)com or calling 305-447-1447.

Sketch of the CAST helioscope at CERN to search for solar axions. Credit: Nature Physics (2017) doi:10.1038/nphys4109 (Phys.org)—A team of researchers working on the CERN Axion Solar Telescope (CAST) project report passing an important milestone in their search for the axion—they have moved below established astrophysical constraints and are now working in an area that is expected to reap many rewards regarding both the axion and other avenues of physics research. In their paper published in the journal Nature Physics, the team describes their work, what they have found, and what they believe is on the horizon. Maurizio Giannotti with Barry University offers a News & Views piece in the same journal issue covering the history of the axion, the work done by the CAST team, and where future research in the area is likely headed. The axion is a theorized particle that was introduced to explain why there is a difference in symmetry between the strong forces in respect to time. Since its introduction, it has been added to the mix of theory regarding dark matter. The only problem is that no one has been able to find one—but that is not for lack of trying. Multiple experiments have been conducted with the purpose of proving that axions really do exist. But until now, all such experiments have been constrained by equipment unable to probe the area below values of established astrophysical constraints. In this new effort, the researchers probed that area for the first time, and though they have not been able to spot an axion, they report that the potential now exists due to the advanced hardware at their disposal. If axions exist, theory suggests that they should be made visible by a very strong magnet—it should convert them to X-rays that could be seen and measured with standard technology. To that end, the group at CAST has placed a giant magnet (a castoff from the main CERN project) and placed it on a track to allow it to track directly with the sun. Theory also suggest that axions should be produced by virtually all stars, including ours. Using this new technology, the researchers have been looking for X-rays that have no known source (identifiable by a certain energy level), which would leave axions as the likely suspect. And even if they do not find any, they report that they are confident that they will find new phenomena that will enhance the field. Explore further: New portal to unveil the dark sector of the Universe More information: V. Anastassopoulos et al. New CAST limit on the axion–photon interaction, Nature Physics (2017). DOI: 10.1038/nphys4109 Abstract Hypothetical low-mass particles, such as axions, provide a compelling explanation for the dark matter in the universe. Such particles are expected to emerge abundantly from the hot interior of stars. To test this prediction, the CERN Axion Solar Telescope (CAST) uses a 9 T refurbished Large Hadron Collider test magnet directed towards the Sun. In the strong magnetic field, solar axions can be converted to X-ray photons which can be recorded by X-ray detectors. In the 2013–2015 run, thanks to low-background detectors and a new X-ray telescope, the signal-to-noise ratio was increased by about a factor of three. Here, we report the best limit on the axion–photon coupling strength (0.66 × 10−10 GeV−1 at 95% confidence level) set by CAST, which now reaches similar levels to the most restrictive astrophysical bounds.
