[00:00:00.000] My name is Dr. Michael Haight. [00:00:01.640] I'm a practicing dentist in Albuquerque, New Mexico, [00:00:04.243] and my practice is Parkway Dental. [00:00:07.071] Yeah, I think we've all been to those places [00:00:09.201] that you feel like you are out of the 70s where just things just appear outdated, [00:00:16.300] that there isn't a lot of attention to detail [00:00:20.343] of what the patient's going to experience [00:00:23.372] when they're in their office or in their chair. [00:00:26.414] You can just see that the equipment looks old and outdated [00:00:31.929] and we all understand what new technology looks like. [00:00:35.886] We used to have old rotary phones and then old flip phones, [00:00:39.672] but not too many of us have that anymore. [00:00:42.014] Most of us have some iPhone or other technology smartphone. [00:00:47.771] I think we all have seen and can feel the difference of a dental office [00:00:51.512] that is up to date and one that hasn't made any changes in decades. [00:00:56.429] Yeah, I believe technology is really important [00:00:59.071] because it just allows the practitioner to have more predictable outcomes, [00:01:05.271] which means greater success, [00:01:07.629] a better patient experience ultimately, and just makes things easier. [00:01:14.014] Just allows you to do those procedures much easier, better, faster [00:01:19.372] than what we could do in the past. [00:01:21.000] In my office, I've just invested in that technology. [00:01:23.801] I love technology that allows the patient to have a better experience. [00:01:27.943] That's quicker, that's easier for them. [00:01:30.571] With digital technology, we scan the teeth. [00:01:34.771] You don't have to worry about a mouthful of material that doesn't taste good. [00:01:38.600] You don't have to worry that you're going to gag. [00:01:40.529] We can scan quicker than we could ever take an impression before, [00:01:44.843] more accurate with a better outcome for the patient. [00:01:48.886] If you haven't been to a dental office in a long time, [00:01:51.329] and the good news is dentistry has changed. [00:01:54.057] I invite you to call my dental practice so that we can show you the advancement [00:01:58.286] and technology and tools that we have to help create a beautiful smile for him.
