TORONTO, Jan. 21 /CNW/ - bioAnalytics Inc.is pleased to announce that
after a very successful pilot in Ontario, the HeartFriendly™ Dentist
program is now available to dental professionals in Canada.
HeartFriendly™ Dentist is a program that empowers the dentist in the
screening, and monitoring of various cardiovascular risks. Through
educational awareness and patient monitoring of vital signs,
HeartFriendly™ Dentist reinforces the need for lifestyle modifications,
pharmacological therapies and adherence to treatment when dealing with
health compromised patients. By monitoring vital signs, the message to
the patient is powerful; my dentist cares enough to "go the extra mile"
in keeping me safe and healthy. The "medicalizing" of a dental clinic
when done right, translates to better customer loyalty. As you improve
the value proposition to your customers, you create many referrals from
positive word-of mouth advertising for dentists who want to grow their
patient roster in a cost efficient manner.
One of the hall marks of modern dentistry is the trend to link the
health of the oro-facial complex to the overall health of the whole
body. As more patients learn about this link between poor oral hygiene
and chronic diseases, the more likely they are to visit their dentist
with greater regularity; all of which equates to higher hygiene
revenues for the clinic. With increased visits comes improved trust,
which is necessary in allowing greater treatment acceptance ultimately
leading to greater profitability. For instance, just a single
additional annual dental hygiene treatment accepted by a few hundred
patients translates into tens of thousands of dollars of incremental
The HeartFriendly™ Dentist is being introduced to Canadian dental
offices on a subscription basis for a special introductory price of $68
