Dr. David K. Dennison introduces innovative method for sharing patient educational materials.
Online PR News – 22-March-2011 – – Houston, TX – Dr. David K. Dennison, D.D.S., M.S., Ph.D., a periodontist in Houston, Texas, has recently introduced an innovative new method within his practice to educate patients as well the staff of referring dental offices. The dental implant and oral surgery specialist is now using a video book that contains useful information for patients considering dental implants. The dental implant video book was developed by Nobel Biocare and is a tool that can be customized for dental practices to use in order to share information about dental implants with their patients. It is also an excellent method that periodontists in Houston can employ to provide information to referring dentists and their patients about the dental implant process.
Dr. Dennison is considered a premier periodontist and specialist in dental implants and oral surgery in Houston. He is a proponent of patient education and has decided to utilize this unique educational tool as a way to explain to patients and potential patients what the benefits of dental implants are, as well as what they can expect from a dental implant procedure. In addition to educating patients about various aspects of dental implants, the video book also educates the staff at referring dental practices about the specifics of the procedure and why they should consider referring patients to a dental implant specialist like Dr. Dennison.
“I understand the uncertainty that some people have about considering dental implants,” explains Dr. Dennison. “Many people can benefit greatly from the procedure but they either don’t know enough about the benefits of dental implants or are simply afraid because they don’t understand the procedure. I think educating patients is important so that they can make more informed and better decisions when it comes to their dental health. That’s why when I discovered the benefits of the dental implant video book, I thought it would be a great tool to use to educate patients about a procedure somewhat shrouded in mystery.” The Houston sedation dentist says that use of the video book has also helped in bringing in referrals from other practices.
The educational tool looks just like a regular hardcover book. When the book is opened, however, it plays a series of short videos that describe information about dental implants and also answer questions about the process. The videos also contain snippets of patient testimonials about the procedure. In addition to information about the procedure itself and how it can benefit patients with certain dental problems, there is a brief overview of the Houston dental implant specialist’s practice and how patients can contact Dr. Dennison to schedule a consultation. “It’s great when we can find ways that make sharing information with patients easier and more user-friendly,” says Dr. Dennison. “Now in just a few short minutes while a patient is sitting in a waiting room, they can get all the information they need about dental implants so they can begin to decide if it’s a procedure that’s right for them.”
