In this first episode of our Summer Series Podcast, The Future of Technology in the Dental Practice, I got the opportunity to spend some time with one of the world’s top cosmetic dentists, Dr. David Hornbrook.
David shared a little bit about his story, how dentistry has changed since he started 32 years ago as well as how technology has changed. We also talked about some of the technologies he uses in his practice and how in many cases, they have transformed what he has been able to do with his patients. We touched on how a new technology, Video Texting from Dental Innovations, inc has transformed how he stays connected with his patients.
Finally, I learned some fun things like a song that best describes him as well as his favorite day of the week. Thanks again David for your time!!
