Spring is in the Air!
What a great time to whiten your smile! With graduations, weddings and summer vacations approaching, now is the time to get in and take advantage of our Glo Pro Whitening Special.
GLO PRO is a convenient, easy way to get whiter teeth without the sensitivity. In office, at home, or on the go.... it is quick and effective!
Offer valid through March 31, 2017.
The GLO PRO Teeth Whitening Device reinvents the experience of teeth whitening using patented G.L.O. (Guided Light Optic) technology. It combines professional elements of heat and light built into a one-of-a-kind closed system mouthpiece that accelerates the whitening process, preventing the whitening oxygen from escaping the tooth surface, bombarding the stains, and making the whitening process more effective and more efficient.
Annual OSHA and HIPAA Training
Dental Center staff attended our annual OSHA and Bloodborne Pathogens Training last month. Judy from Stericycle instructed the class and did a great job updating us on current OSHA and HIPAA regulations.
The staff had their biannual CPR training. This is a refresher on how to administer CPR to the adult (age 9 yrs. or older), child (between 1 and 8 yrs. old), and infant (younger than 1 yr. old) and to understand the key steps and indications for performing CPR.
Melissa D, Melissa B, and Devin attended the Rondeau Seminar in Chicago along with other assistants from all over of the U.S. During the two day session, they learned about the philosophy of orthodontics, covering: cephalometrics, radiology, forms/letters, records, functional appliances, airways, and case presentations. They are looking forward to attending the next two-day session in March!
