Coronavirus Updates

Time to start thinking about “What’s next?” 

Hopefully we will be entering Phase 2 very soon and this will signify that less of the virus is around, but we still need to keep our guard up! Let me share with you exactly what we have done to protect us all.

One of the major improvements we have done is to install 4 Reme Halo air purification systems to protect the entire office. 

These units have the following features and benefits:
• Dual ionizers to reduce airborne particulates (dust, dander, pollen, mold spores)
• Kills up to 99% of bacteria, mold and viruses
• REME® reduces sneeze germs by 99% in the time a sneeze can reach three feet.
• New zinc ions kill 99% of viruses on surfaces
• Unlike portable units that are limited to the room in which they are placed, the REME HALO® provides whole home and building purification.
• Easily integrated with your existing HVAC system. The unit doesn’t take away living space and operates silently.
• Two (2) quick release features for easy, no tool, cell replacement
• Incorporates an adjustable shroud around the REME® cell, which allows customization of the advanced oxidation plasma output.

It has the following applications:

• U.S. Military approved for mold reduction in field hospitals.
• U.S. and International Hospital approval for the fight against infectious diseases: 99% reduction of Staph (MRSA).
• Major U.S. city school reports 20% reduction in absenteeism.
• Tested and approved by the Chinese Government for protection against the deadly SARS virus.
• Approved by the USDA, FSIS, and FDA for use in food processing plants. Employed to reduce microbial contamination of food being processed.
• Cruise lines use it as a safety measure against Norwalk Virus outbreaks

The REME HALO® can be installed in a wide variety of residential, commercial and industrial applications where a ducted HVAC system exists. Here are some examples:

• Single family homes, apartments, condos
• In hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and doctor’s offices
• Schools, daycare centers, colleges and universities
• Fitness centers, locker rooms, athletic facilities
• Office buildings
• Veterinary clinics, animal hospitals, kennels,
• Hotels, motels, and resorts.
• Food processing and manufacturing plants/facilities
• Restaurants, diners, and bars
And to review, some changes and protocols you will see when it is time for your next appointment:
  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  • Other than when you are having dental treatment, wear a face mask at all times.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • We will take your temperature with a hands-free forehead thermometer.
  • Once seated in the dental chair, we will ask you to gargle with hydrogen peroxide.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines,  since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. Please ask Elena or Bonnie for cups.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
Types of appointments we are now scheduling
  • Emergencies of any kind
  • Patients in which treatment may have been delayed, but could cause more damage by waiting any longer
  • Patients in the middle of treatment and any delay would cause more problems
  • Hygiene appointments for all patients that have active periodontal disease
  • Anybody that has had gum disease in the past, and could develop an emergent problem if a cleaning appointment  is postponed any further
  • As always just call if you have any questions on what can be done at this time

Digital Smile Design

Digital Smile Design is an innovative technology that creates a designer smile. What makes this technology so unique is that it considers the teeth and the face shape as a whole. The system takes high-resolution photographs and videos of the face and teeth.

Dr. Bill Papadopoulos and Dr. Pilar Sanchez, the trusted doctors of Beacon Place Dental Group, first discuss the patient's goals with them. Patients may go so far as to present pictures of their idea of the perfect smile. The system videos the discussion, allowing the practice to get a picture of the patient with different expressions on their face.

The dentist also takes a series of high-resolution photographs to map details and uses the DSD planning tools to create highly accurate mock-ups of what different techniques will achieve.

These mock-ups enable patients to choose the right combination of techniques to achieve the look that they want. Beacon Place Dental Group gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "customized treatment plan."

Many dentists can only estimate the results of treatments. The dentists at the Beacon Place Dental Group prefer a more certain approach, and digital smile technology offers that certainty. The results are striking but also completely natural and fit a patient’s facial features perfectly.

Beacon Place Dental Group is one of the few practices nationwide that take full advantage of this smart technology.

A State-of-the-Art Practice

Aside from using the DSD software, the practice also invests in the best diagnostic equipment. 3D intraoral scanners make the traditional wax impressions obsolete. Digital x-rays allow a clear view of the jaw and the soft tissue, allowing for the perfect placement of implants and other restorative treatments.

The skilled dental ceramicists use these scans to create crowns, bridges, veneers, and dentures that fit like a glove.

The Latest Techniques

As the developers of the SmileWell method, there is no one better at creating custom porcelain veneers. Other practices in the Boston area may try to emulate the results, but there’s no substitution for experience.
