It is imperative that dental professionals have extensive education in their craft if they hope to effectively treat their patients. However, if there is one thing that time teaches us, it is that things hardly ever remain the same. A dentist who graduated 20 years ago probably learned about different treatment methods than one who graduated two years ago. Here are just a few reasons why your dentist should be keeping up with technology through continued education.
Technology Is Constantly Changing
The general public was not walking around with phones in their pockets everywhere they went 20 years ago. Just as mobile technology has evolved, the tools and instruments for dental procedures have changed over the decades. There are also many exciting developments yet on the horizon. Not only should your doctor be learning about this new technology, but he or she should also learn how to use it in order to more effectively treat patients.
There Might Be More Effective Options Now
Along with a change in technology comes a change in how we understand what works for treatments. New discoveries mean the development of new treatment options that are safer and less invasive than previous treatments. For example, laser dentistry has made it so that gum surgery is less invasive than it used to be, which means there is less pain and bleeding and faster healing. Choosing a dentist who understands all of the different treatment options available should make treatment more comfortable for you as the patient.

Staff is very friendly. No wait time. They saw me and my daughter in a timely manner and Dr. Richards was so great! The work I had done was completely pain free... Didn't even feel the shot or the work that was being done. The end results were exactly what I needed! No pain, no complaints. Dr. Richards even called the same evening to see if I was feeling okay and to see if I had any questions... Best dental services I have ever had.Marisa B.
