Patients really like to know that you’re staying on top of things and staying up with the latest technology, which we’ve tried to do. We just recently installed electric handpieces that are operated by an iPod. Patients really seem to like that. There’s not as much noise, not as much vibration. We have CAD/CAM technology where we scan the tooth before we do a crown, and then I custom design it on a laptop computer, and then after that, we send it to a mill in the office. It’s milled out and we custom fire it, and it’s delivered before the patient actually leaves the office.
In our hygiene department, we’ve had two new pieces of technology. One is called VoiceWorks. We take periodontal readings of each pocket around the tooth. The hygienist will wear a headset, and as she calls out numbers, it automatically enters the numbers into the computer. The second thing we have is a new [inaudible 00:00:56] Piezo scaler. It makes it very comfortable. It vibrates at 40,000 cycles per minute and it makes a pleasurable experience for the patient.
We use a device called DentalVibe, and what it does is we place it on the gum tissue and it vibrates and distracts when we give the patient an injection. The patients really seem to enjoy that. We add technology to the office to improve patient care so that the patient knows that they’re getting the greatest possible experience that they can have in a dental office.
A Ruston native, Dr. Stuckey has been practicing here since 1989, offering nearly three decades of experience in dentistry and meeting the needs of our community.
