4 dentists making headlines

From providing warnings against a new TikTok trend to suing New York City, here are four ways dentists are making headlines this week:

  1. Dental surgeon Charles Simms Nicholson, DDS, was recently identified as one of three people killed in a triple homicide June 18.
  2. Dentists are warning against the use of Mr. Clean's magic erasers to whiten teeth after a TikTok user demonstrated how she uses the cleaning agent on her teeth.
  3. Benjamin Shirley, DDS, is suing New York City for $5 million, alleging multiple civil rights violations after police accused him of breaking into his own office in March.
  4. George Blue Spruce Jr., DDS, was recently given the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Macy Foundation for his work in the dental industry as the first Native American dentist in the U.S.
