Bethesda Dental Specialties Improves Patient Education With Easily Accessible Information

BETHESDA, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/13 -- Dr. Wayne Hickory and Dr. Joseph Lopez recently released a new mobile website for their Maryland orthodontics and pediatric dentistry practice. The doctors say the new mobile site will allow current and prospective patients access to the practice's information formatted for a range of mobile devices.

In addition to using advanced techniques, such as Invisalign® and SureSmile™, Dr. Hickory and Dr. Lopez are committed to staying up-to-date with the technology used by their patients. Adapting to the contemporary lifestyle of mobile technology and giving patients easy access to information in a manner that is convenient for them facilitates a pleasant experience for the patient when browsing through the variety of procedures the practice offers.

The new mobile website provides patients with a user-friendly interface to research their dental treatment options whenever -- and wherever -- patients please. Dr. Hickory and Dr. Lopez offer orthodontics for teens and adults as well as pediatric dentistry. As prospective patients learn about the doctors and their services, they can view testimonials from former and current clients and access a map leading them directly to the practice from their current location.

Many people today are finding their medical and dental providers through Internet research. Maryland orthodontist Dr. Hickory believes that an educated patient facilitates personalized dental goals for the individual. By providing prospective patients with an easy-to-navigate website and valuable information at their fingertips, patients can arrive to consultations more knowledgeable about their treatment options. The doctors highlight that well-informed patients are better able to communicate with their healthcare providers about expectations, which improves treatment outcomes and yields a more satisfied patient.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
