In the News: Bitewings and Meningiomas

A few weeks ago, there was a whirlwind of media attention regarding a study published in Cancer on a correlation between bitewings and meningiomas. This study was on Good Morning America and most major news outlets.  I have the article and was planning to write a review of the study and it’s validity (or lack thereof) but was beaten to the punch by two dentists who wrote a great synopsis of everything.  So instead I am going to reference their article here.  I also wanted to include the statements that were put out by the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology and American Dental Association.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Enjoy!
