When his private dentist passed away, Henry Yeakel quickly searched for a new dental home. While some might have thumbed through a phone book to find the closest provider, Yeakel didn't have that luxury. He needed a dentist who could cater to his unique dental needs. "My teeth were brittle and breaking and falling apart," said Yeakel, who was diagnosed with AIDS in 1997. "I guess all the medication I was on probably destroyed my teeth. " It used to take Yeakel more than 30 minutes to complete his daily regimen of medication, which consisted of 32 pills twice a day. Yeakel's search for a new dentist led him to the Plus clinic at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry.

When he gets talking about his lab, Gary Hack sounds like he's composing science fiction — a mix of technological wonder and unsettling questions about machines rendering humanity useless. Even the name of the space, the Dream Room, suggests epic horizons. Here's the funny thing: Gary Hack is a dentist. Actually, he's a professor of dentistry at the University of Maryland. Yes, this futurist works in the realm of childhood nightmares, of medieval-looking metal devices and goopy gels that never actually taste like cherry or bubble gum. But it's Hack's charge at the School of Dentistry to find the frontier.
