Stuck in a Rut

Posted by Team DEXIS

VivianContent provided by Vivian Zabik, RDH, Certified DEXIS Instructor:  I have been in dentistry since I was 16 years old. My high school started a two-year dental assisting program with a neighboring school. I was always adventurous, so I convinced my best friend to sign up for the program with me. I told her, “I’m sure the guys are really cute at this school, especially since it’s so close to Kent State University!” She looked at me like I was crazy and said, “Is this going to be like the time you suggested we take a public bus home from school and ended up on other side of town?” I can still hear her mother lecturing us in broken Polish-English on the long drive home!

Fully Embracing Digital X-Ray

Posted by Team DEXIS

Content Offered by Eileen Boren, RDA, Certified DEXIS Instructor  ---  I was recently at a training session in Salt Lake City, Utah. After a pleasant greeting, the first thing the dentist said to me was, “I don’t think we’re ready to only use digital X-ray.

Smiling, I told him that I believed by the end of the day he would change his mind.

Posted by Team DEXIS

Content provided by Eileen Boren, RDA and DEXIS Certified Instructor: Not too long ago, I went with a friend to her first appointment with her new dentist. She had heard good things about him and his office. When we arrived the receptionist greeted us with a friendly smile. The office was clean and tastefully decorated. After filling out the usual forms she was taken back to the operatory that seemed well-equipped. I was allowed to tag along.

Technology for Dental Hygiene at an All-Time High

Posted by Team DEXIS

2013 commemorates the dental hygiene profession’s 100-year anniversary; and from a technological standpoint, there is no greater time to be a practicing RDH! Ask any hygienist who graduated from school more than 40 years ago; she may reminisce about an era when she wore a white uniform and nurse-type cap on her head; and cleaning a patient’s teeth meant using hand scaling only. Imagine that!  As hygienists moved into scrub-type garb, technology moved forward by leaps and bounds. Ultrasonic instrumentation and jetted prophylaxis devices created benefits for patients as well as efficiency and effectiveness for clinicians.

The Lollipop Comparison — A DEXIS Pediatric Technique

Posted by Team DEXIS

Content provided by Christine Hart, RDA, Special Markets Clinical Affairs Manager for DEXIS    Many procedures we perform in dentistry that involve children often require us to prepare the child verbally and mentally in order to be successful. Much like explaining a handpiece or instruments we use, here are some helpful tips that work very well when taking dental digital X-rays on a child. I like to refer to this as the “lollipop comparison.”
