Multitask Your Patient Chair: One Simple Solution

Written by
Headrest4 How can you maximize your dental patient chair so it works to both yours and the patient’s benefit in a variety of dental situations? Gail Weisman, Editor-In-Chief for dentalcompare.com, has a SIMPLE solution…have multiple interchangeable headrests.  Yes, it’s that easy! As Gail explains in this month’s technology spotlight, The Patient Chair: It can-and should-multitask: “Removable, interchangeable headrests are an easy economical way to accommodate a variety of patient and positioning needs that you'll encounter regularly. So when selecting a patient chair; look for one that accommodates them.” By having patient chairs equipped with multiple headrests (such as DentalEZ’s, which comes equipped with double articulating, non-magnetic horseshoe, magnetic neck support, magnetic catcher’s mitt, and dual durometer) you can easily switch your headrest in 30 seconds or less to accommodate patients with special needs and allow further flexibility in patient positioning. In the article, Gail describes various situations where these headrests would come in handy, she even includes solutions for you! Have a patient with a pace maker, or wheel chair? Chair back too long? What about a young child or shorter adult? Or do you have a patient with neck or back pain? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you will find this article extremely beneficial.

The Next Generation of Lighting

Written by
everLight With many economical and efficient reasons such as energy savings, longer life, and brighter more precise illumination, the light-emitting diode (LED) has had universal appeal as a replacement to traditional light sources. Most of us have incorporated LEDs into our personal households:  replacing bulbs in lamps, using LED flashlights, and installing LEDs into outdoor lighting fixtures. As LED technology progresses, the innovative LED is stretching beyond our homes and into our practices.

From the spectacular opening ceremonies, to the very talented athletes & exciting competitions between countries, to the camaraderie of the closing ceremonies, the Olympics are an event we certainly look forward to! I, Dr. Practice,  am a particularly big fan of ice hockey- will Canada use the home-ice advantage to take the Gold medal in men’s ice hockey, or will they let Alex Ovechkin and the Russians steal the limelight? How about freestyle skating? Who will perform the best tricks: the twister, spread-eagle, iron cross, the helicopter - an upright 360-degree spin - now that’s fun to watch! Are you as excited as I am?  Tell me what events  you're looking forward to?

National Children’s Dental Health Month

Written by
youth_poster_2010 February is National Children’s Dental Health Month and we trust that as a fellow dental professional, you’re doing your part in teaching good oral health habits to children of all ages. Once again, the American Dental Association is sponsoring National Children’s Dental Health Month, as it has been for over 60 years. They recommend that children have their first visit to a dentist by the time they get their first tooth or by the time they are a year old. The ADA web site is chock full of tools that you can use right now,  in your own office, to promote optimum oral health for all your pediatric patients. There are many resources for dental professionals on the site such as in-office posters that help publicize positive oral health messages. The ADA site also provides fun activities kids can do while learning more about how to keep their teeth strong and healthy. The ADA makes it easy for us to help our children maintain healthy smiles that will last a lifetime!
