The Innovative Dentist

Dentists are constantly innovating procedures and techniques to help make your visit more comfortable. Sometimes, these innovations take a step outside of the dental chair and lead to inventions that are used everyday. Here are some of those inventions, ranging from what you’d expect a dentist to invent to the more… bizarre…

Levi Spear ParmlyInventor of Dental Floss

Dental_floss_(whole) It’s no wonder a dentist is credited with inventing dental floss. Although, people have been picking at their teeth since the beginning of mankind, it wasn’t until 1819, that New Orleans dentist Levi Spear Parmly published a book called A Practical Guide to the Management of the Teeth. In the book, he recommended that people floss with waxed silk thread “to dislodge that irritating matter which no brush can remove, and which is the real source of disease.”

Dr. William MorrisonInventor of Cotton Candy

Cotton Candy!Some people might cry “FOUL” when they learn dentist William Morrison created Cotton Candy. Yes, the air spun, sugary treat, that has been found guilty of many a cavity, was developed by a dentist. To add insult to injury, Dr. Morrison first called his sweet treat, “Fairy Floss.” Was this to make people use sugar as they would dental floss or did he get the recipe from some really hyper fairies? No one will ever know. At least the sugary confection has lead to millions of smiles throughout amusement parks around the world… and probably a few more dental appointments.

Dr. Alfred P. SouthwickInventor of the Electric Chair

This invention is definitely on the bizarre side. Dentist Alfred Southwick saw a drunken man accidentally shock himself to death in 1881. This inspired him to invent the electric chair, which he figured would be a better alternative to hanging because it would be quick and painless (insert “going to the dentist” pun).

Dr. Bob SmithInventor of the Modern Snow Goggles

Dr Bob SmithDentist Bob Smith was an avid skier and was tired of his goggles constantly fogging up. So he did what any normal dentist would do: innovate the first double-pane goggle with a sealed thermal lens and breathable vent foam, to dramatically reduced foggy goggles on the slopes. Once he got a patent for the open-cell foam used for venting, he produced the goggles by hand with his wife and friends using dental tools and employed dental students to glue the pieces together.

 

DentalXChange is constantly innovating new and useful services to help enhance the dental practice. If you would like to learn more about what DentalXChange can offer your practice (like going paperless, saving money and increasing efficiency), check out our website or give us a call!

DentalXChange Helps Shape the Future of Dental EDI at NDEDIC Summit

Huntington beach is a great place to hang 10, build a sand castle and get a great tan. They don’t call it Surf City for nothing! But this year it was the perfect place to catch a wave of a different sort. The EDI wave of change!

NDEDIC banner

 The National Dental EDI Council (NDEDIC) is the only organization to unite insurance groups, clearinghouses and dental practices in promoting the value and increasing the utilization of electronic commerce within the dental industry. NDEDIC’s EDI Summit provides a conference for these stakeholders to meet and advance the value and utilization of electronic connectivity in the dental community.

 This year, NDEDIC hosted its 2013 EDI Summit over the week of April 29th thru May 2nd  in Huntington Beach, CA. The conference featured a wide range of events and seminars  and brought together Payers, Practitioners and Clearinghouses from all over the country, dedicated to furthering the advancement of Electronic Data Interchange in the dental industry.

Lizzy Jones DentalXChange employees moderated many of these seminars, like, Bill Dachelet, Operation Manager and past Benjamin D. Ward Award recipient, who hosted the EDI Basics Workshop: Talk HIPAA to Me. Tom Mort, a Benjamin D. Ward Award recipient and Director of Product Integration for DentalXChange, help moderate two events: 835 Remittance Advice 101 and 835 Driven to New Directions by UIF. And not to be out done, Lizzy Jones, Director of Sales and Retention, helped present the Town Hall Meeting: Sharing Best Practices for Marketing EDI Usage.

  The SumIMG_1058mit was not all work though. People who attended also got treated to a day at theIMG_1159 Aquarium of the Pacific, in Long Beach, CA, or a day of golf at Mile Square Golf Course. Le Ann Eyres-Morris, Director of Channel Partners for DentalXChange, help host a meet and greet at the Longboard Restaurant and Pub. It all culminated with a fantastic beach party featuring live music and bonfire with a build your own s’mores bar!

DentalXChange president and last year’s Chairman of the Council, Scott Wellwood, presided over the final event of the week, the Awards luncheon and State of NDEDIC Report. He passed his gavel to this year’s Chairwoman, April Rimpley, Vice President of Group Customer Connections & Operations of Ameritas.Scott Wellwood

DentalXChange has been a member of NDEDIC for more than 20 years,”  said Wellwood. “Our active participation and leadership during that time has proven instrumental in driving success for our company and numerous process improvements for our customers.  It is truly a unique organization and the annual Summit provides tremendous learning and networking opportunities and showcases the best of what our industry has to offer.”

 All the events at NDEDIC’s EDI Summit 2013 were lively, educational and ended with great give and takes from the audience that will help shape the future of EDI in the dental industry.
