Discover What Dentists Are Saying About Dental Lasers  (video)Dental lasers are quite literally cutting-edge technology.

Some dentists find them an amazing tool for fighting gum disease. Others find them highly over-priced and not particularly useful, while others want to buy them, but can’t afford them yet.

Speaking of a dental laser, one dentist said, “It is the best thing to come along in dentistry in the past 20 years!” While another complained, “The laser I paid so much for isn’t a comfortable part of any treatment I do. It’s not paying its own bills!

The Wealthy Dentist conducted a survey asking dentists if they use lasers on soft tissue for the treatment of gum disease. Watch the video to hear how the dentists responded —

Internet Dental Marketing: How Google Search Plus Your World Works (video)

Internet Dental Marketing: How Google Search Plus Your World Works (video)Are you curious how the changes to Google search will impact your Internet dental marketing?

Search Plus Your World is what Google is calling their personal search algorithm intended for the users of Google Plus.

When a Google Plus user is signed into Google, their search results will be very different from searches done outside of Google Plus. Search Plus Your World will include photos, blog posts, and recommendations from the user and their friends.

They will see the personal results and the profiles of people they know (or follow) on Google Plus included in their search results. They will also be able to expand their Google circles by discovering people and brands related to their search —  Google will be offering these recommendations to them too.

If the idea of Search Plus Your World has you a little confused, Google has provided the following video, which shows how Google intends personal search to look for the Google Plus user —

These changes to Google search mean that individuals will play an ever-growing part in search results from Google.

Dentists can help their Internet dental marketing efforts by creating and sharing dentistry-related content as always, but with a new attention directed at Google Plus. Maximize impact by educating your dental patients on who you are and how you can help.

What are your initial thoughts about Google’s Search Plus Your World, and how is your dental practice using Google Plus?

Dentists: Do You Offer Laughing Gas? (video)

laughing gas survey videoNitrous oxide sedation at the dentist office is no longer the mainstay it once was, but laughing gas is still around. The Wealthy Dentist conducted a survey asking dentists if they still offer laughing gas.

We received a variety of responses from dentists.

A Texas dentist replied, “Nitrous should be available in all offices. This is just good customer service. It is not the dentist’s decision whether or not a patient needs it. All patients should be asked if they would like it. Charge a reasonable fee and it is money in the bank!”

A Washington dentist disagreed, “I think it’s nuts to use nitrous…the dentist and staff are breathing it (which has been shown to cause miscarriages and neurological problems, along with who wants a “high” dentist), it’s takes tons of time to set up, and it’s expensive!”

We found that specialists are significantly more likely than general dentists to offer conscious sedation. Since specialists often perform more intensive procedures than general dentists, they may have need for more sedation dentistry options.

Dental Survey: Lead is the Number One Dentist Concern (video)

Dental Survey: Lead is the Number One Dentist Concern Mercury and Fluoride, two chemicals that can be highly toxic, or highly helpful to dental health.

Lead and Bisphenol A, two more scary chemicals that might be in our dental work. It’s enough to make you wonder whether dentists might sometimes be doing more harm than good.

What’s worse, the scientific evidence isn’t clear.

Sighed one dentist, “I’d like to be doing all gold restorations.”

Another dentist commented, “I feel it’s ironic that some patients don’t want ‘artificial chemicals’ in their mouth and decline the natural elements in amalgam in favor of the complex chemistry of composites!”

The Wealthy Dentist conducted a survey of dentists asking how concerned they are about various potential public health threats linked to chemicals in dentistry.
