Chapter Eighteen: The Virtual Dentist

It almost feels like a scene in a movie – you now have the ability for technology to let health professionals know something is wrong with your remotely. It seems unbelievable, but sensors and “smart pills” have now come into play as an actual healthcare option. Imagine that? But how can we get it into our dental health needs? In this chapter, Dr. Rosenthal talks about the various ways dental technology is constantly monitoring in order to improve patient care, even remotely.

Telemedicine platforms. Let’s face it – the internet isn’t going anywhere. But one of the more brilliant uses of it are the communication systems developed in order to improve treatment plans. There is no I in team, so why not pull all of the resources available to give your patients the best treatment possible?

Digital interface. The ability to communicate with the laboratories creating their patient’s restorations not only improves the natural look of the patient’s teeth but can also make tracking these packages easier. Combine that with 3-D prosthetic development and we have the ideal product for our patient.

Mobile devices with video. Being able to video chat with your dentist when something is amiss is not only a benefit to the patient, but also for the doctor. It is an instant way to ease a patient’s fears and instruct aide until they can be seen live.

Crowdsourcing via citizen sensing and social media. Each one, teach one is a motto we should all believe in, especially with the development of the internet. We can now reach out to anyone who can help and that is a comforting thought. Sharing knowledge is key to progress. Together we are stronger.

Chapter Fifteen: The High-Tech Practice

For many people, thinking about going to the dentist leads to a bit of anxiety. The reasons behind it can vary, but for many it is the stigmas that really send chills down the spine. After all, dentists haven’t been presented to us in a kind fashion when it comes to the entertainment industry. In fact, a butcher or a barber are shown as similar occupations to the dentist, and this is what sticks in our memories. So, of course there is apprehension when it comes to keeping dental appointments.

The good news is that there really is nothing to fear about being in the dentist chair. Tons of advancements have been made to not only relax the patient, but to make a dental procedure practically painless. It’s true – what was once perceived as loud, painful drills and bleeding gums is now more assimilated to a day at the spa.

But that’s not all – the dental field has revolutionized the way we understand dental issues. We know how to improve bone growth and how periodontal bacteria attacks your gums the way they do. We have a new way to examine your mouth with 3D technology. Traditional x-rays are now a thing of the past. So, not only can our smiles be completely remade, but the process isn’t as extensive as you may be think it would be based on past experiences.

Oral surgeon Gary Ruth, DDS, sums it up nicely: “Dentistry is the only area of the medical professional that can replace missing body parts – tooth and jawbone – with something that’s stronger and better looking than the original.”

Chapter Twelve: The Five-Star Experience | New York, NY

We all know that patients don’t want to visit the dentist. In fact, unless they have a toothache, a dental visit would be dodged at all costs. We know it’s necessary in order to maintain a healthy smile, so how do we entice them to keep those appointments regular? For Dr. Rosenthal, he and his staff provide their patients with the five-star treatment. What does that entail? Well, for Dr. Rosenthal, it’s a top-to-bottom experience with the patient centerstage.

Firstly, it is in the attitude. Dr. Rosenthal compiles a staff of people that not only provide fantastic patient care, but also go above and beyond what you would come to expect from a typical dental office. You will be interviewed about your needs and wants. You will have a thorough explanation of what to expect from your visit. You will be welcomed with a smile and an answer to any question or concern you may have.

Next, comes the amenities. A typical dental office is not what you’ll find here. In fact, it will remind you more of a five-star hotel room than a dental office. Would you like a cozy blanket or a lavender eye mask? How about lip balm or a cool beverage? Yes, these are the things you can come to expect from this top-notch dental office.

Dr. Rosenthal grew up with parents that instilled a strong sense of pride, passion kindness and respect. He has used their life lessons to give his patients the ultimate in dental care. We should all have this attitude about the work that we do.

Chapter Two: Myths, Deceptions and Misconceptions | New York, NY

When asked about they’re least favorite thing to do, many adults will say visit the dentist is at the top of the list. The reasons will vary, but it’s enough of an issue that many patients put off regular checkups as a result, making their dental health at risk for future issues. But dental anxiety is a real condition that affects many of our patients. Unfortunately, many of these fears lie within deeply held and unhealthy beliefs about oral health. In the book, Open Wider, Dr. Larry Rosenthal addresses and uproots these issues head on:

Dental visits are unpleasant. Have you been to a dental office lately? Big-screen TVs and aromatherapy are just a couple of the amenities there for you to relax and enjoy your dental experience.

Dental treatment is painful. Materials and bonding techniques are so advanced, patients are less aware that procedures are happening at all.

Teeth aren’t important features. Your teeth are not only responsible for your bite, but support the lower third of your face, affecting your overall appearance. You need to take care of all of your teeth.

Dental restorations last forever. Nothing lasts forever, and the better you care for them, the longer they’ll last.

Dentists aren’t doctors. DDS stands for Doctor of Dental Surgery. They aren’t scary like the movies say – they’re just normal people like you and me.

Dental procedures take a long time. With today’s dental advancements, basic dental procedures can be done as quickly as a pedicure or haircut.

Bad breath is diet-based. There are a few reasons you may have bad breath. If it becomes a common occurrence, it could be a health issue, like acid reflux or medication you are taking.
