The doctors and staff at By Design Dental Implant Center host weekly educational seminars teaching patients how to maintain optimal oral health.
At their King of Prussia dental implant practice, the doctors at By Design Dental Implant Center are a team of dental specialists who strive to educate their patients on the importance of oral health. To meet this goal, they offer complimentary patient seminars on Wednesday nights. These seminars are hosted bi-weekly from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Cliff Gratz, the practice’s treatment coordinator, says patients have a chance to meet the doctors and staff in a relaxed and informal environment.
The practice’s implant surgeon, Dr. Robert Mogyoros, says that there are a variety of benefits to the educational seminars. Among these benefits are:
- Patients have a chance to tour the facilities at the practice, which includes a full service on-site laboratory
- Patients receive free education on dental implants and available treatment options
- Seminars are on-site and can help patients feel more comfortable in the office setting.
Dr. Mogyoros notes that patients can benefit from the seminars by asking any questions they may have regarding their own oral health and what they can do to prevent future disease. He adds that the team at By Design is extensively trained and educated in multiple aspects of implant dentistry. Collaboration of this team adds greatly to the quality of patient care. “We are atypical from a normal dental office because there is a team of us who are all specialists. We have an oral surgeon, a periodontist and a prosthodontist. By putting everyone under one roof, we are able to combine the expertise of surgical and restorative specialists, use the latest state-of-the-art technology and limit costs in order to streamline the process and get the best, most affordable results.”
During the seminars, patients have a chance to receive a complimentary low dose panoramic x-ray of their mouth to detect any irregularities. This could normally cost $300 or more but is included in the free consultation at no charge. Dr. Mogyoros says that patients can find out what happens to their teeth if they are not properly taken care of and can receive customized treatment plans to help prevent any future disease. “We do this to educate those who aren’t sure what to do about their dental problems. We really want the best for our patients and will do everything we can to inform them of their options when it comes to their oral health.”
Gratz says patients attend the seminars to learn more about the practice’s innovative All-on-4™ procedure. He adds that many people assume that they need dental implants for each missing or damaged tooth, but with All-on-4™, patients can receive 12 teeth with as little as four implants.
The practice’s on-site laboratory allows the doctors to expedite the All-on-4™ process.
Dr. Mogyoros says “The All-on-4™ procedure is a really great option for patients looking for an alternative to dentures that is fixed in place and does not come out of the mouth. It is a unique procedure that allows for the removal of diseased teeth, placement of implants and the fabrication and delivery of a new bridge. The procedure is minimally invasive, graftless and can be accomplished in one day.”
