Dentist Has Completely Uncanny “Tooth” Related Wedding.

So I’ve definitely heard of some unusual wedding entertainment ideas, but when I heard that two of my dentist friends from college were going to wed, I fetched my diary and was checking if I had time to attend the friends’ wedding when the informer added: They are going to have a completely tooth health-themed wedding. I closed the diary without checking my schedule and resolved to attend in spite of any appointments I was going to have that day. It wasn’t so much out of love as it was out of curiosity. Dentist-themed weddings are clearly unheard of, so I wanted to know what kind of craziness had come upon my friends.

The first bout of surprise was when I saw ribbons hung from the fibers of toothbrush imitations. The ribbons themselves looked like a spurt of toothpaste and were in different colors- yellow, white, orange, purple et cetera. Beside each ribbon hung a balloon. On each balloon was an immaculately done drawing of a couple with sparkly, well-aligned teeth, kissing. There was a burst of colors outside, a harbinger of the splendor and immaculate themes inside.

Similarly done balloons and ribbons hung from the ceiling of the chapel. Looking around, the chapel bore the aura of a dental clinic. On the aisle, the couple sat as dental patients would waiting for an appointment with a dentist.

tooth-weddingAcross them, a giant tooth cake stood on a pedestal with a male-looking tooth beside a female-looking tooth, both showcasing radiant smiles. On top of the cake, where cake toppings should be, were the bride and groom as teeth. I would later be told that the cake didn’t have a lot of sugar as sugar spoils teeth.

The couple had asked a dentist who was also a church minister to preside over the occasion. He wore a dentist’ overalls that had the typical clergy’s collar tab. He looked amazing, albeit unusual, in that attire.

I sat there mesmerized by the creativity and passion of the couple. They had surpassed expectations already. I had come here cynical of a dentist-themed wedding, but now I was awed beyond expression. The couple looked fantastic in their wedding attire. The bridegroom and his grooms were dressed impeccably in well-done grey suits while the bride was gorgeously clad in a snow-white overflowing wedding dress. Her bridesmaids were just a gorgeous. Surprisingly, there was nothing dental in their various attires save for breast pocket handkerchief in men’s coats that hung from the pockets as would a tongue out of the mouth, though not as goofy, but in a stylish, decent way.

The height of this dentist couple’s ingenuity showed when the minister stood to have them take their vows. I cannot remember exactly what happened, except for a few interesting snippets, but I can firmly attest that it was one of the most spectacular things I have ever witnessed. It was unusual, genius and spectacular, to say the least. For instance, in the vows he asked the couple to stick together as teeth does to gum. When the teeth falls off, he said, it is to its own destruction. The minister asked them to seek counselling whenever they have marital problems just as people seek dental care whenever they have dental problems. When the couple partook of the cake, they brushed their teeth before the audience amid rapturous cheers.

As I drove off from the wedding, I looked at the diary: I was to meet the state’s governor the very time I was attending the wedding. I smiled to myself, thankful that I didn’t look at my diary in prior as I would have been compelled to go to the meeting with the Governor and miss the spectacular wedding.

5 Reasons Why Dentists Need To Create An App For Their Business

app-for-dentistsIf you are a dentist, it’s highly recommended that you consider creating an app for your business. In this age wherein most people are connected to the internet, it makes complete sense that you reach out to your clients online. There’s a lot of benefits that you can reap from a simple app that’s available for both desktop and mobile users. With that said, now is the perfect time to develop an app for your dental clinic and separate yourself from your competitors. If you still have doubts about getting an app, the following reasons should help you understand why you should have one.

1) It will be a lot easier for clients to book for appointments.

If you have an app, a client can set up an appointment without visiting your clinic. It doesn’t matter if you and your clients are miles away from each other, business will continue as usual. Most apps these days are automated which means you don’t even need to move a finger to manage your appointments. Everything will be handled by the app. Apps are usually equipped with a scheduling system which enables clients to see what times the dentist will be available for appointments.

2) It’s a great way to build your brand and improve your reputation.

An app is very effective in getting the word out about your clinic and your dental services. In effect, your established clients will market and promote your business by simply using your app and recommending it to their friends and families. That’s like hitting three birds with a single stone. Additionally, people are known for having more trust in businesses that are active and visible online.

3) It’s very affordable.

Whether you are creating the app yourself or you are hiring someone to create it for you, the total cost won’t cut deep into your wallet. The investment you make is small compared to the benefits that you are going to reap once your app is launched. With the growing number of developers today, the cost of having an app created will likely go down in the coming months.

4) It’s a good way to attract more clients.

As we mentioned earlier, a lot of people these days are now using their laptops and mobile phones to search for products and services online. Needles to say, if you are not visible online, then you are not getting a slice of this growing online market. However, if you have an app, there’s a way for potential clients to find you and the dental services that you are offering.

5) It cultivates customer loyalty.

You can also use your app as a portal for customer service. Your current patients can use it to contact you about problems they may be having with their teeth, gums, or dentures. This connectivity builds loyalty among your customers. This means they are more likely to use your services again and even recommend you to people they know.

In conclusion, you need an app to market and promote your clinic and your dental services. It’s a good way to get ahead of your competitors.

Smile Matters: Dentist Services Review

happy-teethHave you been trying to hide that missing tooth which happened because of an accident? Or do you feel forced to cover your teeth because they are too yellow? And if you have multiple problems with your teeth, can they be all dealt with under one roof effectively?

These are problems which many people face everyday. So, what is the solution?

Smile Matters is an organization which offers solutions to such problems and claims much more. Let us now try to find out if it is really worth your while.

Friendly atmosphere:

Dentist’s office is perhaps the most detested place by most people. This is so, not only because of the severe pain associated with dental problems, but also because of the attitude of the doctors and other staff. Smile-Matters seems to have grasped the import of this well. They have made it their motto to make the patient feel comfortable and welcome in their office. This definitely helps you to relax and also minimizes your discomfort during any procedure.


This is by far the most important consideration when choosing your dentist. Smile-Matters offers a very wide range of services, all under one roof. Right from fillings and root canals to complicated cosmetic procedures, all are being provided in one place. So you do not need to worry about having to go to a different dentist for each of the problems that you may have. The place also seems to enjoy a good reputation among the patients, most of whom are quite happy with the quality of work and the work ethos. They are willing to go back again for any problem they may have in future. This is surely the biggest compliment that any doctor can ask for, and it is more true in the case of a dentist.


The importance of technology in today’s world cannot be over-emphasized. Therefore, it is important that the dentist’s office is well equipped with the latest machines in order to be able to tackle all kinds of dental problems easily and effectively. Smile-Matters appears to be keeping pace well, having such recent technologies like lasers, digital radiography among others.

Holistic approach:

Many doctors, while practicing their profession, tend to forget that they are dealing with real people and think of them only as their patients. This restricts the view of the doctor and prevents him from thinking about other regions of the body which could be responsible for the patient’s symptoms. Unless the doctor is open to such reasoning, the real cause and thereby an accurate diagnosis is often missed. Smile-Matters lays claim to a holistic approach to patients’ problems, and as much emphasis is laid on prevention as on treatment in the case of any individual patient.

In spite of best efforts, it is always possible that a patient may have certain problems. This can happen to anyone and at any place. However, the important thing is that a patient is properly heard, and a genuine attempt is made to sort the problem out quickly and to the patient’s satisfaction. Smile-Matters is one organization which does indeed endeavor to put this into practice.

Your smile is an important aspect of your persona. It helps you to befriend people and also elevates your own mood. But your smile is only as good as your teeth and therefore your teeth deserve the best possible care. Smile-Matters definitely seems well equipped for providing this.

How To Determine Approximate Costs For Denture Work 

denture-before-and-afterHow do you determine what a reasonable cost for dentures would be? Like many orthodontic services, this depends on exactly what you need and where you are willing to go for these dentures. The typical cost of dentures is between $300 to $5000 per plate and many high-end denture models can cost between $1000 and $5000 depending on precisely what you’re looking for, so there is a bit of a trade-off between getting highly functional dentures that look like your natural teeth and finding a more “affordable” denture that costs $300 but may not be as durable or aesthetically pleasing. However, that doesn’t mean you need to overpay for denture options that you can’t afford and don’t really need if you can find a workable denture within your preferred price range.

That makes setting a reasonable budget worth the extra effort even though you might think that it’s “just” a denture. When you shop for dentures, you want to decide how much you are willing to spend when discussing options with your orthodontist so that you don’t get talked into something you won’t be able to afford. Ask for prices up front and the ones that are within your set budget are going to be your real options. While it may be worth it to spend an extra $100 for a more realistic looking denture or one with reduced maintenance needs, this eliminates the hidden sticker shock involved in shopping for dentures.
The amount of money that the orthodontist charges can be one major factor in the total cost of your dentures. You’d be surprised by how much this can vary between orthodontists in your area and those costs may even vary between region due to variances in the cost of doing business that orthodontists have to factor into the amount they charge. While you always want to makes sure you’re comparing apples to apples when looking around for an orthodontist and that includes asking for reference or looking for reputable review sites that feature orthodontists, it pays to get a few quotes from orthodontists in your area before you get dentures.

Most of us who have health insurance also have insurance that covers routine visits to the dentist, but is that insurance policy going to cover dentures? This is one common insurance “gotcha” for people who need dentures or any other kind of specialized orthodontic service. Making sure your dentures are covered before you go to the orthodontist can help to keep your out-of-pocket expenses down.

Dentures are not cheap, but shopping for orthodontic procedures like denture installation using many of the same tactics that you would use while shop for any other major purchases will help to keep the costs under control. That means knowing what you need in advance and what a reasonable price range would be regardless of whether you’re just looking to have a single tooth replaced by a denture or need a full bridge. It might also include visiting several orthodontists in your area to collect quotes and following up on the references they provide to see whether other real clients were happy with their work.
