Some may consider technology as a distraction, but those at Mortenson Family Dental are leveraging the newest technology available in dentistry to help save lives through early detection of disease.
Mortenson Family Dental is leveraging the newest technology available in dentistry to detect diseases early on. For early detection of cavities, the Spectra is the newest technology. Used to locate cavities at an early stage and around old fillings, it uses fluorescence technology and it allows the patient to visually see a Doppler-like image of his or her tooth, enhancing and numbering the severity of the cavity. Mortenson Family Dental also uses intra oral photography, which allows the patient to see concerns themselves.
Not only does Mortenson Family Dental use emerging technology for cleaning teeth, but it's also one of the more prominent area physicians offices in using social media. In addition to utilizing text messaging to confirm appointments, it's enagaged in Twitter
, providing helpful hints, coupons, contests (to win free stuff like concert tickets) and a personal appeal that humanizes the organization and connects with patients on a more personal level.
