FOR QUADRILATERAL ELEMENTS, gradient superconvergence has been well established since Veryard (1971) improved the accuracy of the gradients of biquadratic Galerkin approximations by sampling them at the second-order Gauss points in each element. Such points of exceptional accuracy of derivatives of finite element approximations have come to be known as(More)
With the decline in dental caries, the dental profession and the general public have become sensitized to the "new" specialty of cosmetic dentistry. As a consequence, research in the field of dental materials for the ideal, most natural restorative materials and techniques has become a primary focus and has had a profound influence on dental education and(More)
Fragile X syndrome is a common condition resulting from a cytogenetic abnormality in the X chromosome. Mental retardation, characteristic facies, and large testes are some of the most important characteristics of the condition. The relatively high incidence of the syndrome--approximately one per thousand--the high incidence of cardiac anomalies in these(More)
The family physician/pediatrician who sees the newborn handicapped infant is the health-care professional who can best influence the parent concerning the general health-care needs of the child.

The family physician/pediatrician who sees a child from birth as part of the well-baby visit program is in the best position to identify early dental problems and to educate the family about early oral preventive health care. Since children under three years of age are not seen routinely by dentists, they are at risk of developing dental disease. This paper(More)
