Happy Fall! ~ From Your Friends at Ivory
Hello Everyone, It's time for one of our seasonal newsletters! Here is what's been going on around Ivory....
"Ok Everyone...Here she is! Juliet Marygold Brenny. Thank you to all of my amazing patients for being excited with me about the birth of my new daughter...We have a lot of couples that are expecting their first child this year as well, and we are PUMPED to see the photos. Make sure you bring them in! If you want to see more pics of this little cutie, let me know at your next appointment! ~ Dr B
INTRODUCING...Lauren! Those of you that have visited us over the past month have noticed a new face around Ivory...Lauren is the newest member of our team and is a GREAT dental assistant. She's a native of MPLS and loves spending time with her husband Tim and her 1 year old son Gavin! You are all going to LOVE her!
Some of you may be wondering..."what happened to Ruthie"!?!?! Well, we are happy - and sad - to report that Ruthie made the move out east (Ohio) to nanny for her two nieces. You remember the little framed photo of Ruthie and the two little girls in Dr B's room? Those are the little gals she gets to spend her days with. She misses all of you and really misses MN, but she is having a great time living closer to family!
No More goopy Impressions?!!! Sign me up!!
Most of you are aware the Dr Morse and I (Dr B) have been faculty at the University of Minnesota dental school and constantly stay on top of the BEST research, technology and dental treatments. Since we are committed to providing the VERY BEST dental care to all of our patients, here are a couple things we are doing to make that happen: 1) We have a new digital scanner that allows us to cut out the goopy tooth impressions (without increasing cost) and take 3D pictures of teeth. It's an amazing technology that will make your appointments faster, easier and more convenient!
A Cavity Curing Solution?
2) We are starting to use a very revolutionary product called SDF (silver diamine fluoride). This solution is a applied quickly and painlessly to small weak area's of enamel or "baby cavities" and has been shown in many cases to arrest or ELIMINATE the decay! Meaning - that many small cavities that we catch early (and simply apply SDF in less than 30 seconds) can be KILLED and stopped from turning into actual fillings! NO more fillings??!! I think patients are going to LOVE that :) Our goal is to keep our patients teeth so healthy, you never need another filling again!
