A new study discussing the outcomes of dental implants placed by General Dentists was published in this month's Journal of the American Dental Association.  The groups results suggest that implant survival and success rates in general dental practices may be lower than those reported in studies conducted in academic or specialty settings like Periodontists and oral surgeons. #dentalimplants

A comment from one of our patients...
"When filling out Medical History updates, I think that if they were sent out ahead of time it would make it easier for the patient to just bring it in the day of the appointment. I do that for some of my other doctors."— Constance S. Dec 8, 2013

Thank you for the great feedback. We are working through a process of improving our data management and including the necessary paperwork (digital paperwork shortly) for patients to complete ahead of time is a part of that plan. It also helps to reduce paper usage. Along those lines, our practice is a Gold Tier member of the GOOD DEED program of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. In order to recognize dental offices that are pursuing more environmentally friendly practices, the Ohio Dental Association and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency have developed the Ohio Good DEED (Dedicated to Environmental Excellence in Dentistry) Program. #GoodDeed
