Dr. Deidra Bird Kokel was tapped by the producer of the PBS series “Success Files,” hosted by Rob Lowe, to educate the public about current innovations in dentistry.
The topics discussed were technological advances to make a patient’s visit to the dentist more comfortable, time effective, and educational to help each patient make clear decisions when deciding their oral health options. She highlighted technology that allows dentists to show patients what they see and tools needed to diagnose more precisely the problem areas in the mouth. Cone beam technology, E4D machine, centrifuge technology, options for numbing, and the trend of spa comfort for each patient were a few of the topics discussed during the daylong shoot at her Leesburg office.
“Going to the dentist is no one’s favorite activity, but with new technology advances we are able to provide each patient options to help with length of visit and improve their comfort while in our care,” she stated.
Taping of the upcoming episode was done Feb. 23. Learn more at successfilesrl.com.
