Yost Family Dentistry has added Solea, Convergent Dental's new dental laser, to its practice. Solea's technology offers patients a reliably anesthesia-free alternative to the traditional drill for hard and soft tissue procedures. Its unique 9.3 μm wavelength provides a natural anesthetic effect while also affording dentists the ability to cut dental enamel with unprecedented speed and precision. Patients experience virtually painless procedures that take a fraction of the time of a traditional dental appointment because practitioners do not need to inject anesthetic or control bleeding.
"Patient care is my top priority and I am always looking for new ways to provide the best treatment possible," said Morgan Yost, DDS. "I have found a wonderful alternative in the Solea laser that provides the potential for 'shot free' dentistry. I have been using for over one month and it has exceeded my expectations. Patients are loving it."
Convergent Dental's customers report that the majority of their hard and soft tissue procedures are done with no anesthesia and virtually no bleeding. Yost Family Dentistry patients will be able to receive the oral care they need and immediately jump back into their day. No anesthesia means no risk of patients biting themselves so the traditional limit of working in a single quadrant per visit is a thing of the past. Now patients can get all of their dental needs addressed in a single visit making it easy to return to work or home and avoid missing valuable "up-time."
A collaborative effort between the Delta County Sheriff's Office and municipal law enforcement agencies throughout Delta County has resulted in a proposal for a 1 percent sales tax increase to fund public safety. A PowerPoint presentation titled "Back the Badge" is starting to make the rounds at city/town council meetings, service club luncheons and other events.
