To read more about Patterson Dental, go to Patterson.As part of the CAESY Education Systems family, Smile Channel 10 offers informative presentations with before-and-after photos, 3-D animations, full-color graphics, and full-motion video. This edition of Smile Channel 10 features an updated look and feel, with new presentations covering smile restoration topics such as “Hiding Your Smile?” “Why Not You?” and “Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body.” Additionally, new presentations are offered on today’s dental technologies, including Identafi and Under Armour. Updates have also been made to existing presentations such as “Smile Restorations,” “Repairing Chipped Teeth” and “CEREC CAD/CAM.” Smile Channel 10 plays a role in many dental practices not only by educating patients on general dental health topics, but also by promoting discretionary services in an informative and credible way. The front-office programming prompts patients to ask the dental team about these services once in the operatory. This helps open the door to discussions and treatments that patients may not have considered. Smile Channel 10 helps inform new and existing patients about how dentistry can improve not only their smiles, but their lives.
