Dog days of dentistry

Owning a dog comes with a lot of responsibility.

Most pet owners are observant about carrying their canines frequently tested for heartworm, giving them their monthly doses of parasite and flea preventives and creation certain they accept their periodic rabies vaccines.

But when it comes to dental health, many finish adult in a dog house.

“The mouth is an critical object to keep healthy since of a attribute to all else in a body,” pronounced Queensbury veterinarian Robert Glendening.

Ideally, owners should start progressing their pets’ teeth when they’re puppies, though many of us don’t take movement until we get a toxic sniff of

Need a massage and a filling? This dentist's got you covered | Video

Walk into the reception area of one Fort Lauderdale dental office and you’ll be greeted by the “Director of Client Happiness” concierge who will offer a complimentary glass of champagne or wine and hand you an iPad so you can fill out your patient information.

At Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique on U.S. 1 in Fort Lauderdale, you can get facial rejuvenation botox treatments and digital smile makeovers alongside regular dental care such as oral cancer screenings, cavity fillings, teeth cleanings and implants. Independent contractors in the office provide the massages, facials, peels, waxing and eyelash and permanent makeup treatments.

Front-office staff tends to client needs from limo transportation to making lunch or dinner reservations, in addition to scheduling and insurance issues.

The uncommon paring at Patterson’s dental office creates a unique niche for her and her business partners. Clients can mix and match services or choose only dental or only spa services.

The distinctive dental practice launched in March, by South Florida cosmetic and restorative dentist, April Patterson, 30, is an example of piggy-backing emerging upscale customer services with traditional professional services.

Operating out of a 2,000-square-foot former spa, the facility is equipped with a shower and built-in aesthetics: waterfall walls, comfort lighting, upscale cabinetry, sinks and faucets.

“If a client is already here and is confident about the service they’re getting, then they’re likely to seek other services from that same source,” said Patterson.

Christina Chen, 30, and a downtown Fort Lauderdale banker, is one of Patterson’s patients who has become a spa client. Chen got a facial cleansing and eyelash extensions. “It’s a one-stop shop, a central location and everyone is very professional,” said Chen.

“This took a lot of research,” said Patterson. Certifications, licenses, zoning all had to be in place before opening. She created a business plan and worked closely with her banker for credit, loans and financial operations.

Patterson’s office is a paperless “iDental office,” a term she made up to emphasize the accessibility of information patients have at their fingertips from educational clips about procedures to viewing a relaxing movie.

The Dr. Patty APP lets clients make an appointment, view Web page content and refer the practice to others. “You want to make it easy for the client to navigate your practice,” said Patterson.

Through Leadership Broward’s EmergeBroward networking arm; and as vice president of the Fort Lauderdale chapter of Femfessionals, Patterson makes essential business connections, she said.

She used local design, architect and marketing vendors to get her practice up and running. She displays locally produced artwork for sale. “Its job creation,” said Patterson.

NIH grant using genomics to tailor oral cancer treatment NYU College of Dentistry, UC San Francisco

Investigators: Dr. Brian L. Schmidt, NYU College of Dentistry, and Dr. Donna G. Albertson, University of California, San Francisco

The National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has awarded a two-year grant to Dr. Brian L. Schmidt, professor of oral and maxillofacial surgery at the NYU College of Dentistry, and Dr. Donna G. Albertson, professor at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. The grant will fund groundbreaking research to customize treatment for oral cancer patients. Drs. Schmidt and Albertson have identified candidate genomic markers in tumors that predict if an oral cancer is likely to spread (metastasize) to the neck.

Oral cancer is often fatal if it spreads to the neck and remains untreated. Current clinical and radiographic examination provides limited information for diagnosis of early neck metastasis of oral cancer. Nearly all cancers within the oral cavity must be surgically removed. An additional and extensive surgery (neck dissection) is also performed to remove lymphatic tissue in the neck if there is any clinical or radiographic evidence of neck metastasis. Patients who present with no evidence of metastasis in the neck often undergo a preemptive neck surgery because untreated occult (hidden) metastasis reduces life expectancy by half.

The work of Drs. Schmidt and Albertson will validate genomic markers that will ultimately be used to rule out neck dissection in oral cancer patients with no clinical evidence of neck metastasis and who have tumors containing specific genomic profiles. Dr. Alberston notes, “It has taken us eight years of research to converge on a genomic marker that could be used to tailor treatment for oral cancer patients. We look forward to testing this marker in a clinical study and this funding will help up us to develop the appropriate laboratory test for such a trial.”

Currently, neck surgery for those suffering from oral cancer entails a three-to-four hour major procedure involving critical anatomic structures and is associated with life altering morbidity including stroke. For most patients this procedure is unneeded but employed as a pragmatic solution to the dilemma posed by the specter of occult metastasis. Dr. Schmidt states, “We can dramatically improve quality of life if we can accurately identify those who do not need a neck dissection. Morbidity and recovery time would be reduced, and we would alleviate anxiety for many patients and families.”

Dr. Schmidt will conduct the clinical portion of the study through the NYU Bluestone Center for Clinical Research, which he directs. Dr. Schmidt and his team will recruit subjects, enroll patients, and collect the specimens. The samples will then be sent to the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center where Dr. Albertson’s group will process and analyze the samples. Drs. Schmidt and Albertson foresee improved care for oral cancer patients once their newly identified genomic marker is validated.
