A Conversation with Dr. Melissa Ing, Djenane Lemaire and Miranda Boynton

Every once in a while, I hear from one of my previous guests on the podcast that they’ve done something that might be of interest to my listeners.  This was the case when Dr. Melissa Ing, who I spoke with on Episode 106 “Celiac Disease and Dental Education”, contacted me recently about research and a poster project a couple of her students had done.  On this episode, I speak with Dr. Ing, and two of her students Djenane Lemaire and Miranda Boynton about testing they did on common materials used in dental offices to determine if they contained gluten.  The testing included soaps and hand lotions, as well as materials that went directly into a patient’s mouth.  The poster was very well received, being awarded second place in a large competition and being chosen for presentation at a major dental conference.  We talk about how dentistry can be a first line to diagnosis and how rewarding it was for the students to have their research project about gluten exposure in the dental office so widely received.
