What’s New in Dentistry?

It used to be that if you wanted to learn about a specific dental condition, procedure or technique, you’d be handed a pamphlet or brochure to take home to read.

Dental patient watching a interactive patient education video

Our multimedia patient education puts you in the driver’s seat when it comes to choosing your care.

Well, times have certainly changed in many areas, and dental education is one of them. Our society has become more technological, with interactive videos and multimedia presentations that demonstrate information, rather than force you to simply read about it.

At Anchorage Dental Care, we realize that dentistry is no different and that pictures say far more than a thousand words!

Makes for More Informed Patient Decision-making

If you’re asking what interactive patient education can do for you – quite frankly it’s a lot!

Multimedia, when used for dental patient education, is designed to teach patients about dental conditions, topics and procedures in detail through the use of art, video technology.

It’s one thing for us to tell you about a procedure, such as root canal; it’s quite another to actually see what’s involved through video and pictures.

Multimedia presentations on two treatment alternatives also help you to weigh the pros and cons of each in order to make an enlightened decision.

Multimedia presentations have the ability to show you “before” and “after” pictures for a number of procedures. This gives you some idea of the outcomes you can expect upon completion of a specific procedure.

Multimedia Education Saves Time and Improves Understanding

Since we have multimedia presentations that focus on all types of conditions and procedures in each of our examination and treatment rooms, patients are free to review the materials on their own, without having to wait for a doctor or staff person to provide an in-depth presentation. Messaging is consistent and can be repeated until you are sure you understand.

Oh… and kids love it! Our videos that demonstrate proper brushing and flossing and the ways in which tooth decay starts and progresses are always a big hit!
