More than 30 million Americans refuse to go to the dentist due to dental fear or anxiety. What if you could attract more of these patients to your practice, and increase treatment compliance among your current patients, by providing a comfortable, anxiety-free dental experience?
The DentalVibe® Comfort Injection System has been proven to change patients’ perception of dental treatment. In fact, 95 percent of patients who received treatment with the DentalVibe say that it has changed the way they view going to the dentist, and many say that they wish the DentalVibe had been invented sooner so they could have received the dental care they needed earlier in life.
Patients who have tried the DentalVibe say that if their dentist used the tool, they would be more likely to make and keep regular dental appointments, comply with treatment plans, and recommend their dentist to friends and family members. That translates to increased revenue from your current patient base, as well as new patients to help you grow your practice.
Parents of pediatric patients are especially appreciative of the DentalVibe’s ability to reduce dental fear in their children, making return appointments more enjoyable for the entire family. Many dentists give their DentalVibe a nickname — such as the Tooth Tickler or Mr. Vibe — to make it more appealing for their younger patients.
On average, dentists who use the “cheek shake” method to help numb the area shake each cheek 3 times a second for 4 seconds, or a total of 12 shakes per cheek. At an average of 8 patients per day, that translates to 1920 cheek shakes per month, 23,000 cheek shakes annually, and 460,000 cheek shakes in a 20-year career.
The DentalVibe vibrates the tissue 160 times per second for 100 seconds, or 16,000 times per patient. That equates to 480,000 vibrations in 3 days if you treat 30 patients. That means the DentalVibe will deliver more vibrations in just 3 days than the number of cheek shakes the average dentist can perform in his or her career!
