Smile Makeover Contest

It is NOT too late to get your name entered in the $20,000 LVI Smile Makeover contest!

Entry forms are being accepted through the month of March for a drawing on April 1st. We have already submitted a number of entries from our office, and encourage anyone who is interested to contact us ASAP.

You do not have to be a patient of record in our practice to enter. So, if you know of anyone in your circle of friends or family who may be interested in having some cosmetic dentistry done to improve they way they look and feel about themselves, please have them call us to set up a consult appointment so we can enter them in the contest.

While this is a nationwide contest, you can be encouraged because it is exclusive to the patients of LVI-trained dentists, so that narrows the number down considerably since only a couple thousand dentists have completed LVI training. The total number of entries, of course, will depend on how many names are entered from each of those offices.

LVI, btw, is Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. This is a world renowned facility founded by Dr. Bill Dickerson which is devoted to training dentists in advanced techniques in aesthetic dentistry, neuromuscular dentistry, TMJ treatment, dental laser techniques, neuromuscular dentures, full-mouth reconstruction and other disciplines of comprehensive dentistry.

Jill's Baby Girl

Congratulations to our registered dental hygienist, Jill, and her husband, Bill, on the birth of their baby girl. She arrived on a Sunday morning, just a day ahead of schedule. Both are doing well, as are twin sisters who were waiting at home with plenty of attention from grandmothers! We're looking forward to meeting the baby...and of course will be anxious to welcome Jill back to her regular schedule in a few weeks.

Theresa, our other registered dental hygieinist, has been a real trooper working some extra time to try to accommodate some of Jill's regular patients as well as her own. It's important for us to keep our patients on a very regular schedule so as not to delay necessary treatment and catch developing problems as early as possible, and Theresa has done a wonderful job helping to fulfill that goal. Thanks!

Smile Reminders is Way Cool

Well, for about 2 years now, our office has been using Smile Reminders to stay in techno-touch with our patients, and the response has been fabulous.

Apparently I'm not alone in my relatively newfound reliance on text messaging and email. Many of our patients have told us how much they love getting a quick text message reminder about an upcoming appointment. With a simple "reply", they are able to confirm the appointment with us or let us know if there's something we can do to make their experience more pleasant.

And if you're due for a cleaning appointment and didn't schedule in advance at your last visit, then you'll get a message to remind you it's time to schedule. Again, a quick reply sends us an appointment request so we can reserve time at your convenience.

One very strong benefit for both patients and our professional team is that we have the ability to electronically invite each patient to complete a survey to let us know about their experience in our office. We can at once see the areas we need to reinforce to continue to provide the excellent care and service we are known for, and at the same time get almost instant feedback on something we may want to try to improve upon.

A future area of development within the Smile Reminder framework will be to contact patients on short notice when a scheduling opportunity has become available. We keep an ASAP list on a back burner with a promise to call patients if a sooner appointment becomes available. Soon we'll be able to text or email to alert patients that an opportunity is available in 2 hours or perhaps the following morning.

And of course, the Smile Reminders e-newsletter has been a vehicle for showcasing some of our services and news items to our patients to keep them abreast of new technologies, special offers, and the benefits of various dental procedures.

Our use of Smile Reminders is consistent with our ongoing thrust towards excellence in all areas of our dental practice. And it smoothly integrates into our patients' busy lives to enhance their overall experience with MoreSmiles.

P.S.: For all you lurking dental professionals, if you contact Smile Reminders about adding these services to your practice, be sure to tell them you read about them on Dr. Moreau's blog.
