Digital Dentistry Here to Stay

Feb 11, 2019

Very few people actually like going to the dentist, but oral health is an essential part of our overall health. We also live in a culture that values good teeth and beautiful smiles, and new technologies are making some of the things dentists and orthodontists have always done a lot easier and faster.

During this hour of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe talks with Dr. Andy Stevenson and Dr. John Mergen about how new technologies have been transforming their practices. Dr. Pete Damiano, who is director of the Public Policy Center and a professor in the Department of Preventative and Community Dentistry at the University of Iowa, and Dr. Erica Teixeira, who is professor in the Department of Operative Dentistry at the University of Iowa also join the conversation.
