Compassionate Dental Marketing: Why Giving Practices Grow

Charitable giving is a valuable way to promote your practice and fuel practice growth. Today’s patients, especially millennials, are more conscientious consumers than any generation before them. They want to know they’re receiving high-quality services from companies with good labor practices and respect for their customers. What does this mean for a local dental practice?

Advantages of Digital Removable Prosthodontics

The advantage of digital removable prosthetics is the ability to view collected clinical data such as terminal dentition, ridge relationship, prosthetic condition, prosthetic space, anatomical landmarks, anterior esthetics, and functional occlusion from various perspectives before treatment has begun. This clinical data is collected from an intra-oral scanner (IOS) or by scanning physical impressions or models.

Occasionally, however, an intact ceramic crown will be present with only some residual resin cement stuck to its intaglio surface.
