Dental Practice Maagement

I know — you try to teach him or her over and over again when you really want to scream, "JUST BRUSH YOUR TEETH THE CORRECT WAY!"

Oral diseases are among the most common, yet they receive little attention in many countries, especially those with poor healthcare systems. On World Oral Health Day (March 28), FDI World Dental Federation presented the latest findings on oral health at the British Dental Association in London.

Short brush, proven toothpaste, and all organic
RDH
This is one of the most innovative brushes I have seen in a long time, SAYS Kim Miller, RDH, BSDH. Designed to be used with a pinch grip by using one or two fingers and your thumb, this brush helps to create healthy brushing habits. As a result, the brush helps to prevent gingival recession and enamel wear by limiting the amount of pressure that can be applied while brushing.

5 simple secrets to improving dental patient reviews
DentistryIQ
Admit it. You love being able to scope out what customers think about a product or service before you pay for it. You type it into the search bar, and bam! instant feedback. As a consumer, that's great. But when you're the one being evaluated, the experience may not be quite as enjoyable. Sifting through patient review sites can be nerve wracking, especially when you strive to provide excellent dental care and your search turns up negative reviews. Whether it's infuriating or not, you still have to do it.
