Dr. Reagan Celebrates 25 years

modern dentistry

This year I will celebrate 25 years of work in the dental profession. Over the years there have been many exciting developments. Dentistry has never been a job for me, it is a passion, and I still love it!

In 2016 my dental career changed again when our Invisalign representative suggested I include their training in my continuing education schedule. Since then I have been on a journey that has certainly changed what I can do to help my patients. I consider myself a lifelong learner “junkie.” Learning something new such as this opened my eyes to another world of dental technology and the possibilities for those who have entrusted their dental care to me.

Technology is here to stay…

Many of you know that I have a passion for technology as it relates to dentistry. As you might expect it changes and evolves at a very fast rate.

The days of impression taking are over!

Many remember the days of impressions and all the “goo”. Well, today we have the iTero, which scans your teeth. The days of impression taking are over! Great News! It is fast and won’t gag you, how exciting is that! It is basically a video of your teeth we can send to the lab or to Invisalign. With these scans we can help with get a crown from the lab, if needed. We can scan for Invisalign. These aligners have millions of dollars in technology in each tray. We are doing things now, that weren’t possible a few short years ago.
