Kabul from just starting so is going to be a little bit for Europe thought that's a thrill to see the tradition carried on in the name and the famous supposed. And certainly many things that we can talk about but first and foremost what you are one of the first for sedation dentistry here in town. Or privacy in my partner and I dark from our number classmates and we want to do dentistry little different some years ago looking for a differentiator. And a new opportunity came along to get a license. Two actually the city folks and make getting dentistry easier 'cause we found out. There's that actually we were surprised after aren't don't school we found that half the population doesn't even told the test. Often because of fear. In if we could address that particular thing by area. Face it dating someone basically allow me a snooze through there don't care that just seemed like a good idea to me. And sure enough it caught on. It's become popular and more more Dennis. The good thing for the public at large. And one thing that I don't think a lot of people realize is just how much your health is predicated on making sure that the team their health. Oh my gosh and the connections. That and so become more profound as the via science moves on. Our guests just is an interesting thing that. People don't always put together public Donald field can impacts such an interest in being as sleep apnea. Who who'd think what is a Dennis have anything to do with sleep apnea. By that turns out that a dance can impact. Your airway. Such that you could have a special clients mid to Wear it night. And allow you to breathe better. And there for address.

Abide by address and asleep at him and call me by surprise a couple of years ago. And yes gonna say these are things and it just literally cropped up in the last couple years it's not like this was general knowledge over you know I don't want this research develop some industries. Can address that it's been fun to be part of the F forefront of that. Science is supposed to be helpful it's just it's converter war and it's not like save a life. Couldn't put into effect the other one thing but since some of his life as a moment. Sure no you. Treat everyone right from pediatric level all the way up to adults well given our winning smiles brand now we start him and actually we are not as a campaign by age one. Mean there should there should be an exam by age one for your baby that can. To avoid a lot of troubles that they just taken peak. And BOC the developments occurring as it should. And while they're the old rule is supposed. Pediatricians say well get amend their sometime around 30. The science has shown that predicament by one Tuesday compete not nothing actually happens to take a look but our pediatric team doesn't led by doctor Mark Foley. It was an incredible job it's things like this here's here's an interesting thing. Sometimes a kids can't when their foreign can't latch to mom and breast feed. And I'm very simple laser procedure Google thing they do on the lip statistics few seconds allows that child to breast feed grade out of the gate and that. This previously not understood or not addressed and now it's such an easy thing we provide it. More and more every day actually. So again things it. We're not apparent years ago our effort and all of a sudden you're just finding out through dollars research right right. What are the most exciting developments are along the lines of of loan implant Tajik and own replacement in your face and jobs. Secret you lose chief. You lose bone. People really put those two things together. But your face starts to collapse not and and all the things go on with loose or missing teeth that's tough. But now we can we can replace one to at a time put more profile only one we take a hole. What we call an archer chief like all your top ones are all your bottom once we call it an arch.

It can take several hours it but when you sit dated you don't care right. Exactly. That the the big thing is everybody perceives that as dramatic surgery or something but in fact. When given some pain pills you know get ready for the next day her waking up in the ensor people often say we don't need to take those pain pills. And do America or new awareness of yolk really crisis is nights to not even have to provide that kind of medication anymore. One off from the little Advil Tylenol will do the job but for a pretty profound surgery. But that most people think really hurts and it really doesn't. It's fascinating that so that's why we do these seminars every month to try to explain the stuff and invite impatient alongs that had a that kind of work to share an audience. Exactly what that's all about what if so let me you know to share their experience. This that in Europe from the docks failure rate from a patient. And it's if people find it very very helpful to learn about that him and real. Time yes. Talking with doctor Scott westar Meyer westar Meyer Martin dental care. And one of those things that Jeff coming up dentistry from the heart is that along similar lines the way you were just talking about.

Has been street and just before we started talking about this you were talking about some of the oral surgeries and especially with a bone loss and a lot of lot of notice from battered good has actually come from the Jim Kelly situation with his cell oral cancer. It this is another realm in which you guys actually air kind of on the front lines to you can actually detect or do things to might mitigate some of the problems of the oral cancer. Part of and he checkup visit in our offices and most on offices locally especially. Is from oral cancer screening exam it's a fairly simple thing Tennessee and how jazz are trained to see oral cancer early stage.

Jim has done fantastic. He's. Now going through the kind of thing that we actually provide a lot for folks and that is starting over with a new set it to be held in by implants. And so that technology is now serving. Jim. And in a huge way which shall be able tie student a couple of more months so more healing to do. Right and again as just wanna point out that so many advances like that have occurred in just the last few years as it is just like one of the I don't wanna say more interest in times but I guess mob more intriguing times more. More sun times to be involved in the practice that you do because of all the advances. Just last week we're exposed to a new technology. That's just fascinating little little tough to explain the radio but it's using 3-D cat scans and planning of things. That has shortened the number of visits to the dentist. To create. A new set a team. Make being incredibly much more simple for the patient and a faster to deliver for the dentist. But has that technology moves forward both India. Computer manufacturer of the actual teeth and the planning through advanced scanning and merging those two worlds. All like idea being engineered understand how works put it. At the end of the day you take. Take a nap and wake up with a new team. That's pretty cool that's pretty cool to be part of and I can only guess what my kids have failed to deliver. On the road.
