In my editorial last year, I was hoping that 2017 would usher in a year of “making dentistry great again.” It doesn’t seem that has happened, instead there is division and divisiveness, and we have
to be careful how to speak to our patients about current events.

as President. He, his choice for Secretary of the US Department of Health & Human Services, and the Republican-led Congress are all poised to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
