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 ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF NEW TIME SHEET MANAGEMENT PROGRAM, DDS TimeManager

DentalXChange is proud to announce the launch of the company’s new dental practice time sheet management program, DDS TimeManager. DDS TimeManager

Designed to help dental practices accurately manage employees’ work hours, DDS TimeManager was built to automate time sheets and help dental practices become more efficient. Practices that use the online tool will find benefit from the easy-to-use, time clock system, one-click time sheet approval process and detailed reports, allowing managers to better monitor labor distribution, according to Scott Wellwood, President of DentalXChange.

“Inaccuracies in employee reported work hours can cost employers thousands of dollars each year,” said Wellwood. “We set out to create a time sheet management program that would help dental practices automate their payrolls and put an end to these errors.”

DDS TimeManager features an online time clock system, allowing employees to clock in and out from their computer, or from one, established computer.  Employees can also view their weekly, monthly and yearly hours worked. Managers can view and edit employees’ daily work hours, as well as monitor sick and vacation hours. Managers can also approve and edit time sheets, enter holiday hours one time and apply it to all employees, and view detailed reports showing any errors that need correction.

“DDS TimeManager will save practice managers’ time, save on paper costs and reduce payroll inaccuracies to the benefit of both employers and their employees,” said Wellwood.

DDS TimeManager is currently available for purchase at http://www.DentalXChange.com or by calling 800-576-6412 ext. 455.
