Fostering good habits is a crucial part of the pediatric dentist’s role. Helping parents become more engaged in the health and wellbeing of their children’s oral health is always a challenge – and despite the best efforts of consultation and conversation – many dental screenings don't end up in treatment.
MouthWatch is an effective solution that extends patient education and oral hygiene counseling into any location where the patient can see a dental professional - and soon, from their own computer or smartphone.

Treating the elderly patient comes with challenges that most dentists rarely encounter. Aside from mobility challenges and the need for assistance that many patients require, the geriatric patient also has a more difficult time understanding the value of proper dental care during this phase of their life.
