Proactive Oral Wellness
Preparing for Health Vs Reacting To Disease
Clinical dentistry today is firmly entrenched in the restorative model. Reacting to the results of disease with technology and restorations. Science is telling us today that the health of the mouth is dramatically affecting our overall health and we must become more proactive in the actual prevention of dental disease. The gauntlet has been thrown down. Are we up to this challenging paradigm shift?
The Pathway To Making Our Patients Independently Healthy
"Patients accept transactional dentistry if that is all that appears to be available, but they will without question, choose relationship based dentistry if given the opportunity." Thomas Larkin DDS
Picture a patient centered practice connecting with patients through concern, empathy, patience, and the prospect of improved health. A dentist whose role is a health care advocate in a partnership both guiding and educating. Giving patients information and understanding so that they can make good healthcare decisions for themselves. Initial consultations should be about biological disease assessment well before ultimately guiding a patient to restorative care. Our common goal should be for all of our patients to become independently "Healthy"'
"Our goal is to set the standard in dental oral - systemic implementation protocols and provide the first online training in video microscopy"'
The Microscope Solution
In the fall of 2017, I solved a very frustrating problem. The video phase contrast microscope was without question the disruptive game changing technology that I was introducing to progressive practices but the setup that was available was not user friendly at all. It was a very complicated setup out of the box and for an inexperienced person, an absolute headache. To top it off, placing a security camera in the top of a microscope tube was not cutting edge technology. I then began to purchase and test EVERY online scope/monitor/camera/tablet vendor on the market. I needed a plug and play solution. I was down to my very last vendor when the breakthrough occurred. I met an individual with 40 years experience that promised me he could fulfill my desires. He custom built a Wifi enabled, Ipad friendly, clinical grade scope, with NO bells and whistles. The optics are SPECTACULAR! This is for biofilm display only. He removed the costly darkfield and oil immersion objectives that DRAMATICALLY changed the price point. The custom configuration is called POW and it will be a game changer.
The Larkin Protocol
The first online microscope implementation course that is a jump start program that supplies you with all the materials,scripts, and coaching to assist you and your dental hygienist in making the transformation to a health-centered approach. There is no need to close down the office and incur lost production and travel fees. The initial training is done virtually over ZOOM during the lunch hour. It is coupled with a 4.5 hour on-demand learning platform that covers all of the microbiology plus laser therapy, ozone, and guided biofilm therapy.
