Educating Patients on Caring for Dental Implants

Colgate has developed for dental professionals -- our New Expert Implant Care website ( This tool helps professionals provide the experiential content patients need to maintain their investment by providing expert advice on proper hygiene techniques. The website features a “Share this Website” tab that allows professionals to email or text a link to patients during a consultation. This replaces paper brochures that may never be reviewed with digital content delivered the way the patient prefers.

  3. Hello! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about dentist in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about dentist. Keep it up!
    All dentists in the U.S must graduate from high school and complete required courses such as general biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and statistics/calculus. While most dental schools require at least a bachelors degree, a few schools may consider admitting exceptional students after only 3 years of college. To apply, students must take the DAT or Dental Admissions Test. Admission to dental school is competitive, and is generally determined based on factors such as GPA, DAT scores, recommendation letters, and extracurricular activities. To become a licensed dentist, one must then complete an accredited dental school curriculum and successfully master all clinical competencies and national board exams. Most dental school curriculums require four years of training, however, some states require dentists to complete a post graduate residency program as well. In the U.S., a newly graduated dentist is then awarded the DDS, Doctor of Dental Surgery, degree or the DMD, Doctor of Dental Medicine, degree depending on the dental school attended. Both degrees are the same. A newly graduated dentist can then pursue further specialty residency training ranging from 2 to 6 years. Additionally, dentists participate in continued education where they attend lectures to learn of recent developments, practice new methods, and earn CE hours. There are specific requirements for dentists to attend continued education hours, and dentists who accumulate additional training are better prepared to handle a variety of cases and surprises during treatment. In the UK the training is similar except it is generally a five year undergraduate course leading to a BDS (Bachelor of Dental Surgery).
