News for April 1, 2019

Dental laboratories in Russia were forced to stop production last week after it was announced that there was no evidence of Russian Occlusion.

Google announced a new corporate motto. Instead of “Don’t be Evil” the new motto is “Whatever”.

Over 1.7 billion people use Facebook. Sadly this is not an April Fools joke.

Due to inflation $1,000 in 1960 would be worth $8,108 today. Delta Dental was unavailable for comment.

Odontocare will be rolling out this month. Don’t worry if you like your dentist you can keep your dentist. If you like your plan you can keep your plan.

HHS announced new interoperability guidelines to insure dental technology devices worked together. Dental technology vendors were not quite able to conceal the smirks and giggles.

SurfCT Launches of Surf Robotics – bringing Artificial Intelligence & Robotics to Dentistry

From Digital Journal:

At various dental offices throughout the world where Pepper is being deployed by Surf Robotics and welcomed as a dental team member, the nearly four-foot tall robot – with green and blue eyes that has a computer tablet connected to its stomach – waits at the front desk to greet patients. Pepper checks patients in, gets their charts ready and makes them feel comfortable while they wait for appointments.

I put this in both the “Future Tech” and the “Just for Fun” categories. As it is presented Pepper is mostly a cute novelty and not really a replacement for a person at the front desk. On the other hand I expect we will soon be seeing front desk kiosk type arrangements in place of a receptionist. The business administrators will be free to administer rather than greet.

Follow the link for the full press release.

A Smile

smile2

Costs nothing but creates much.

Enriches those who receive,
Without impoverishing those who give.

Happens in a flash
And the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None are so rich that they can get along without it,
And none are so poor but are richer for a smile.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen,
for it is something that is no earthly good to anyone until it is given away.

Apple has a message for Amazon and Google and it’s plastered on the side of a hotel at the biggest tech conference of the year

The message, which takes up about 13 floors of building, says : “What happens on your iPhone, stays on your iPhone” with the URL to Apple’s privacy website.

Bold and Innovative!

I got this cartoon from Maria Cenales at Curve Dental.

Sadly this is exactly what I run into with dentists and dental team members using new technology. The doctor invests big bucks in a new system then everyone does everything possible to keep doing things just like they did before.
