   2015 - Until today:

Science Projects: Co-writer, editor, and compiler with a collaboration of dental surgeons and scientists from New Zealand and Australia, who write articles on the research work of Dr. RG Every, dental surgeon, paleoanthropologist, who revealed the innate "grinding/sharpening of teeth" phenomenon (tegotics) in humans and mammals (see Lancet:The significance of extreme mandibular movements1960)

Margo collaborates with Dr Kevin Scally, Specialist in Restorative and Tegotic Dentistry. She argues  Dr. RG Every's research, "The tegotic model", is a specific class of behaviour, within the paradigm of bruxism, that has the biological advantage of innate behaviour, a mechanism, that sharpens, whets and hones our teeth.
