Commercial Supporter: Milestone Scientific Inc.

Patients are more likely to remain loyal to a dental office when they understand the purpose and intentions of the practice and feel a connection to it. A dental team’s philosophy of care should include a reason why the team wants to provide a certain level of care to their community. Computer-aided local anesthetic delivery is one important technology that demonstrates a practice’s commitment to an overall better experience for patients. The author concludes that such technology also reduces strain on dental professionals who deliver anesthetic commonly throughout the day. Additionally, it provides a launching point for the practice to showcase modern technologic advancements for both financial and social benefit.
