Phil Workman, Dr. Lyuba Taft, Eugene Taft, and Adrian Valente The Secret to Doing More Dentistry and Helping More Patients Smile Now and Pay-Over-Time
Hosted By: Phil Workman, Dr. Lyuba Taft, Eugene Taft, and Adrian Valente
Aired: Tuesday, October 26, 2021
Duration: 1 hour
Sponsored By: Sunbit
Synopsis:
A patient comes into their local dentist office with a cracked molar. Rather than asking questions about treatment, they’re more concerned with how much it’s going to cost, afraid they can’t afford it. It’s no surprise that 59% of adults have forgone dental care due to cost.

Access to dental care is a major challenge for dental professionals. According to a survey of thousands of dental practices, the average case acceptance rate is underwhelming at best—for established patients, it’s 50-60%, and for new patients, 25%-35%.

It doesn’t add up. It’s time to improve access to care!

Offering Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) is proven to increase case acceptance rates, patient satisfaction, and production. Stop leaving patients underserved and money on the table. Join this webinar to learn how practices like yours have already started tapping into this opportunity.

Learning Objectives:
--------------------------------------------
1. Why case acceptance rates continue to be a challenge, even with traditional financing solutions available.
2. How dentists can leverage a new Buy Now, Pay Later technology that approves over 85% of patients, with no hard credit check.
3. How Buy Now, Pay Later is helping dentists generate 25X more financing production and 150% more patient approvals than traditional financing solutions.

Mark T. Murphy, DDS, D. ABDSM CE WEBCAST: How Scanning Simplified my DSM Practice
Hosted By: Mark T. Murphy, DDS, D. ABDSM
Aired: Tuesday, February 23, 2021
Duration: 1.5 hours
Sponsored By: Medit
Synopsis:
For some time now, dentistry has been progressing towards a more digital experience. Things like online marketing, registration, practice management systems, interoffice/patient communication, radiography, caries detection, intraoral cameras, surgical guides, shade taking, (you get the idea) have been moving to digital. Obstructive Sleep Apnea class II medical device manufacturers like ProSomnus have been digital since inception. In fact, analog impressions and bite registrations had to be digitized prior to making your patient’s appliance. “Goop is Dead”, long live intraoral scanning! Especially for expensive PVS full arch impressions for dental sleep medicine, scanning makes great sense. It shortens the workflow, is more accurate, saves time, saves consumable expense and patients love it. Mark will describe his transition to IOS using the Medit i500 for DSM and how it streamlined his practice.

Learning Objectives:
--------------------------------------------
1. Appreciate the evolution of dental practices towards digital experiences
2. Evaluate the ROI, marketing, and workflow simplification of transitioning to IOS for DSM
3. Example the protocol for Impressing and Bite Registration using a Medit i500

Dr. Barry Glassman CE WEBCAST: From Simple Occlusal Adjustments to Treating Occlusal “Neurotics”
Hosted By: Dr. Barry Glassman
Aired: Thursday, September 10, 2020
Duration: 1.5 hours
Synopsis:

We have all dealt with a post restorative complaint and corrected it by adjusting a “high spot” that was inadvertently created during the procedure. Almost without fail a single adjustment resolves the complaint.

We have all dealt with patients who were hyper aware of their occlusion. Some of those patients get labeled as “occlusal neurotics.”

This 90 minute on-line CE session, then, is geared for the general dentist with the goals to improve daily occlusal adjustments in restorative therapy as well as to learn how to deal with more complex occlusal issues.

There is a continuum of disease that starts with a single tooth awareness that progresses to jaw discomfort and awareness that a bite is “uncomfortable” to a patient totally focused on their “bite” often seriously effecting the quality of their lives. The later stages of this disorder is termed “occlusal dysesthesia.”

There are many literature references to this somatic disorder. It is difficult to assess the frequency of the disorder. Because it is a continuum, many patients have a degree of the disorder and are therefore vulnerable to proceeding to a more serious, life altering form of the disease. The disorder is associated with a vicious cycle between an increased trigeminal signal and the reticular activating system. Appropriate treatment to interfere in this vicious cycle will be thoroughly explored.

• What applications work best with the Stratasys Eden260V.
