I may be dating my age by asking this question, but do you remember the first time you heard music from a Compact Disc player? I do. I never owned a record player, but my mother did. She had a modest collection that was in heavy rotation. I did own an 8-track player for my car. And through the years I had purchased cassette tapes of my favorite music groups. So when I heard a compact disc play for the first time, all I could do was chuckle. The audible improvement was incredible. The sound was so crisp, so clear. It wasn’t an expensive player, but it just blew everything else that I had ever heard before out of the water.
Listening to music with a CD player was a game changer.
While attending Dr. David Galler’s course entitled “ReIngage, the course that changed everything”. I had that same reaction, this is a game changer in dentistry. This is going to improve in a big way the way we serve our patients. Music went from analog to digital. Dentistry is doing the same. We’re still a long ways from reaching our fulling digital dental potential, but the changes are going to be huge.
We really do care for our patients and I am so excited that we will be able to serve our patients so much better with these new and innovative digital dental tools that are evolving.
There are many offices across the world that are implementing Dr. Galler’s ideas. I was pleasantly surprised to know that we will be Dr. David Galler’s first dental office in Maine. We are humbled and grateful to be given this opportunity.
