Episode 5 — My Dentist has Mad Tech

We’ve made it to episode 5.  We fill you in on genuine reasons to avoid the dentist, but take care not to avoid overusing these as excuses.  If you tell us one to many times that you have tuberculosis we’ll start to wonder if you live in a Russian prison.  We’ll also tell you what cool new tools your dentist can use to treat you if you actually make it to their office.

Show Notes

Reasons to Avoid the Dentist

  • Influenza
  • Head lice
  • Active Herpes blister on your lip
  • Tuberculosis
  • Pink eye

Word of the Day: Chartless Office

A dental or medical office that uses electronic records instead of paper records to track the diagnoses and treatment of its patients.  A paperless office extends this by having not only electronic records, but also electronic signature pads, digital x-rays, and other digital forms of communication entirely doing away with paper.

Dental Tech You Might See in Your Dentist’s Office

  • Digital X-rays
  • Digital photography
  • CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Milling)
  • Lasers
  • Patient Education Software

  • Very instructive – always spread the word. Getting excited about an update. For too long now have I had the need to begin with my personal blog. Guess if I wait any longer I will never ever do it. I’ll be sure to add you to my Blogroll. Cheers!!
