Introduction of a Novel School-based, Business Driven Dental Program to Alleviate Pain and Unmet Dental Needs for Underserved Children

Introduction of a Novel School-based, Business Driven Dental Program to Alleviate Pain and Unmet Dental Needs for Underserved Children

By Marisa Moret, Samuel Lynass and Greg Evans, D.D.S.
From the Fall 2015 Journal of the Colorado Dental Association

Nationally, 14% of our 6-12-year-old children are likely to have suffered from a toothache in the last six months. Preventive measures such as dental sealants only reach a fraction of children, while the lifetime cost of a decayed permanent molar ranges from $2,187 to $6,105.

New Chips on Credit Cards and Your Practice

New Chips on Credit Cards and Your Practice

By Jennifer Nieto
From the Fall 2015 Journal of the Colorado Dental Association

To panic or not to panic? That is the question. You may have heard that credit cards should contain an encrypted chip in addition to a magnetic swipe stripe by October 2015. If your office doesn’t have a terminal with this enhancement yet, there is no need to panic; however, you should start looking into a new terminal to avoid liability should a fraudulent card be presented at your office. This is a new technology to heighten security on the way credit card information is stored and processed in order to prevent fraud. If your office processes credit cards, you will need a terminal that has EMV (Europay, Mastercard and Visa) chip-reading ability for credit card processing.

Avoiding Pitfalls in Your Next Office Lease Negotiation

Avoiding Pitfalls in Your Next Office Lease Negotiation

By Stephen Strecker and Ryan Nolan
From the Fall 2015 Journal of the Colorado Dental Association

Most dental practices in Colorado lease their office space. The location and impression that their office makes on patients is a huge determining factor in patient referrals and return visits, especially in a competitive marketplace.

For these reasons, it is imperative that dentists achieve the best possible lease terms on an ideal location for the office to maximize the practice’s productivity and profitability during the next office lease or renewal negotiation.
