Mobile version of Web site puts latest periodontal disease diagnostic and treatment resources in the hands of BlackBerry, iPhone, and DROID users.
WARMINSTER, Pennsylvania--OraPharma, a specialty oral health company dedicated to bringing scientifically and technologically advanced products to the dental community, including ARESTIN (minocycline hydrochloride) Microspheres, 1 mg, plans to roll out the Mobile site. The company unveiled the site at the recent ADA Annual Session in Orlando, Mobile is a convenient and portable personal practice resource that is derived from the Web site Like its Web site namesake, the mobile Web site is designed to help the dental team-- including dentists, hygienists, and office managers--provide the highest level of periodontal patient care possible via the latest information delivered to a smartphone.According to Dina Weisleder, ARESTIN product director, “ Mobile was extremely well-received when we demonstrated it during the ADA Annual Session. Plus, when you consider that 54% of dental professionals use smartphones, such as the Apple iPhone, DROID, and BlackBerry Curve, and that 42% of them are using these devices to access dental information, I’d say the dental industry is ready for Mobile.”Access to the mobile Web site is free, and will enable dental professionals to use their smartphones and mobile devices to access a wealth of periodontal disease information. They can:• Retrieve general periodontal diagnostic and treatment guidelines • View or share an ARESTIN demonstration video • Review ARESTIN clinical data or prescribing information• Order ARESTIN for their patients “ Mobile delivers the information dental professionals require to effectively treat periodontal disease whenever and wherever they need it,” explained Weisleder. “This includes the latest clinical information on the progression of periodontal disease, the proven efficacy and safety of ARESTIN as an adjunct to scaling and root planing (SRP), effective patient communication tips, and the incorporation of periodontal treatment protocols. Mobile puts this information at the fingertips of every dentist, hygienist, and office manager, via virtually any mobile device.” For my information, visit read more about ARESTIN, go to ARESTIN.To comment on this product, go to available from company upon request.
