Healthcare costs aren't rising as fast as anticipated
Dentistry IQ    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Congressional Budget Office recently reported slower growth on healthcare spending than anticipated. Surprising news, considering CBO estimates from August regarding economic growth and federal spending on healthcare. In December 2012, The Commonwealth Fund published a report stating that premiums for family coverage increased by 62 percent from 2003 to 2011, far faster than income for middle- and low-income families. Out-of-control costs, they assert, are a result of "poorly coordinated care, duplicative services, and administrative waste, as well as rising prices charged to those privately insured." More

Affordable highly esthetic veneers
Inside Dentistry    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Patients often desire nothing more than a straight, white smile but, in many cases, the cost of creating that beautiful smile may be out of reach. Porcelain veneers created by a master ceramist look amazing, but the ceramist has to charge a premium — which means the dentist must also charge more to make a profit. This can drive the cost too high for many patients. However, new milling materials are increasing options for both labs and dentists with in-office CAD/CAM systems. More
