“The Million Dollar Smile”, currently scheduled for release in early 2018, will aim to provide patients with the most up-to-date information on state of the art dental treatment. The main purpose of the book, according to Blue Ocean Publishing Group’s purchasing agent, Anna Foster, is to give patients real, practical information to help them in obtaining the best possible restorative and cosmetic dental work.
The book will feature contributions from expert dentists selected from across the country who are skilled and trained in the latest dental treatment procedures. Foster notes that “these expert dentists can provide people with all the necessary information for anyone seeking cosmetic or restorative dental treatment.” Dr. Tieken will be contributing a chapter on sedation dentistry, an increasingly popular treatment option that enables individuals who were formerly too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need, without experiencing anxiety or apprehension.
Importantly, the book is being written in layman’s language that the average person can easily understand. It is intended not as a textbook for dental professionals, but as a helpful guide for ordinary people looking for top quality dental work. The expert contributors to “The Million Dollar Smile” are dentists who have advanced training and skills in modern dentistry and vast experience with procedures such as implants, veneers, and orthodontics.
Blue Ocean Publishing is working with Barak Granot of the dental marketing agency, DentoMetrix, to assemble the most knowledgeable team of experts as contributors to the book.
