As the public gears up for the swine flu…so should we.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have issued specific guidelines geared towards dental professionals for the prevention of Swine Influenza A (H1N1) in the dental healthcare setting. According to the CDC website, some Frequently Asked Questions from dental providers have been: 1. What to do if a patient presents for routine treatment and has acute respiratory symptoms with or without fever? 2. What to do if a patient with acute respiratory symptoms requires urgent dental care? 3. What to do if staff report to work with acute respiratory symptoms? For answers to these questions and more, take a minute to read the CDC’s Prevention of 2009 H1N1 Influenza in the Dental Healthcare Setting. And for up-to-date information on the Swine Flu, you can visit the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/swineflu/.

October is National Dental Hygiene Month

Written by
adha As we approach the end of October, I want to make sure we all acknowledge and celebrate all of our hard-working dental hygienists in observation of ADHA’s National Hygiene Month!  Let’s make sure to take the time and say thanks to the Hygienist herself (or himself), and recognize their priceless contribution to oral hygiene, awareness, prevention, and keeping smiles healthy! According to the American Dental Hygiene Association, week 4 during NDHM is “Take a Potential Member to Lunch Day.”  So grab your co-worker or friend and treat them to lunch! What did or would you do for your Hygienist this month?

Technology Sells Your Practice

Written by
Integration of the latest dental technology is changing the way we practice, allowing us to work both smarter and more efficiently. But, let’s step away from the procedural benefits for the moment - have you considered how technology could sell your practice to new and existing patients as well? In the September issue of Dental Product Shopper, Fred Joyal, CEO of 1-800-Dentist, illustrates several benefits in his “Technology is Marketing” article. In the article, Joyal points out how “technology sells dentistry”. He explains that while most dentists may have the technology in their office, their patients are unaware of this technology. More importantly, the patients don’t realize the many benefits it provides them. As he points out, the public is largely unaware of the advancements in dentistry due to, one, people don’t research advances in dentistry on their own, and two, lack of a national campaign educating the public on recent changes in dentistry. As Fred suggests, give tours and educate your patients on a continuous basis of the various technologies you provide, and the many benefits the technology provides for them. This will increase patient acceptance, make patients more comfortable, and most importantly, set you apart from other practices. As he puts it, “Technology gives you something unique to offer, and in a world where people think dentistry is pretty much the same wherever you go, this can make all the difference.” Source: Dental Product Shopper, September, 2009, Pg. 90-91.

A-Rod Steps up to the Plate for Oral health

Written by
I’d like to give thumbs up this week to Alex Rodriguez, third baseman for the New York Yankees. A-Rod recently donated a quarter of a million dollars toward a mobile dental clinic that will serve his old New York City neighborhood.… kudos to A-Rod for stepping up to the plate! It’s nice to see a high-profile celebrity going to bat for oral health. [poll id="3"]

[caption id="attachment_12" align="aligncenter" width="270" caption="Dr. Practice"]Dr. Practice[/caption] Hello there. For those who are not familiar with me, I’d like to formally introduce myself. My name is Dr. Practice and I first started working with the DentalEZ® Group about a year ago. Some of you may recognize me from my appearances in DentalEZ ads, on the DentalEZ web site, or from my acting debut in the popular DentalEZ videos that have been circulating around the web. No Golden Globes yet, but let’s just say a guy can always dream and aim high… I’d like to use this blog to openly communicate with the dental community.  Future topics for discussion and commentary will include a mixture of:
  • Industry news
  • Events
  • Special promotions
  • Tips for your practice and just fun stuff!
I hope this blog will become a popular industry forum with a high level of participation and an exchange of ideas from all of you. Again, I aim high, and so should you! I look forward to reading anything and everything dental and oral health related that you’d like to share with me, and for what promises to be a lively ongoing discussion. Thanks for taking the time to read my very first blog post.
