  • And 3D Printing Too!

    3D printing of teethMy friend in Maryland was telling me about having a crown done by their dentist.  They were especially impressed that their dentist had made their new tooth with a 3D printer.  I listened and smiled politely.  Thinking they must have misunderstood their doctor, I later googled the office website and took a look.  Sure enough, 3D printed crowns were prominent on the office menu. Wondering if this was just an aberration, I googled 3D printed crowns and found offices all over the nation that were doing them.  Who knew?

  • Lessons in Lasers

    Dental laserWhen we were planning our new office location a few years ago, the dental equipment and supply company we worked with offered us a dental laser unit to sweeten the deal. We were thrilled to have them throw in an $85,000 freebie, but didn’t quite know what to do with it at first. All we knew was that it had lights that flashed, buttons to be pushed, and a cool futuristic look. We dusted it and hung our jackets on it for 6 months before I finally decided to take the plunge and try to figure out how to use the thing.

    That plunge has been quite an education. I initially took a few courses offered by Biolase, the manufacturer of our laser. I learned some useful information specific to our unit, but found that many of the claims they made seemed to over-hype what the laser could do. I then joined

  • Vaporware

    Years ago, my wife worked in computer software. She was mostly in the development end, but interacted regularly with those in the sales force.  She would sometimes comment about what they in development called vaporware. That was their term for software that was promoted and sold by sales people under the gun to sell, that wasn't quite ready yet. Sometimes it was not even written yet, just a great idea software. That would invariably lead to the software programmers and development analysts pulling all-nighters to develop, test, and debug to meet some impossible deadline, all the while cursing at the sales force.  At the end of the day they all were friends, but it could get testy at times.

happy patients

I started coming to Dr. Miller in the late 1980s after not going to a dental office for 4 years. It was difficult going back after such a long time. The staff all were so professional and trusting that they put me at ease.

Over the years I have had a number of elective procedures done. All have worked out so well. I am thankful for Dr. Miller's honest evaluation of what needs to be done now and what we can wait to do.

A job change took me away from the Syracuse area, but I thought so highly of the practice that I am still a patient to this day.

Quality dental work you can trust is worth it!
