“Providing the most advanced technology for training and patient care services is part of our commitment to promote and facilitate the highest level of care to the communities we serve,” said Dr. Sheeba Kurian, Brookdale’s Program Director, Advanced Education Program in Pediatric Dentistry. “We are particularly interested in exposing and training our residents to the newest and most patient-friendly technologies such as The Wand® because they help produce good results and pleasant patient experiences. That means our patients will return to us and are more likely to take preventative measures resulting in better outcomes.”
Gian Domenico Trombetta, CEO of Wand Dental, Inc. and a director of Milestone Scientific, commented, “Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center is the most recent addition to dental residency programs and clinics that have adopted The Wand® and are making it part of their curriculum and ongoing practice. Parents and children are special beneficiaries from the technology as it delivers comfortable and effective anesthesias (including single tooth anesthesia), providing a safer, painless and more pleasant experience. It is gratifying to see our technology incorporated into the curriculum for specialty residents. They represent the next generation of dental specialists and we anticipate they will become lifetime users of The Wand® once they experience the advantages for both patients and dentists when using our technology.”
