Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
As a key part of its community outreach efforts in the Twin Cities, Park Dental formed an initiative to donate 500 Save-A-Tooth® emergency tooth preserving kits to any local sports teams and high schools in need. The response for Save-A-Tooth kits requests was enormous, as was the recipients’ gratitude for the public service. “I walked into my office and there the kits were, sitting in my mailbox, and I just said, hey you made my day…these kits will help,” commented a Twin Cities area high school trainer after receiving a set of Save-A-Tooth kits.
Save-A-Tooth kits have been engineered to increase the probability of saving a knocked out tooth to 92 percent, a vast improvement in technology from storage in milk which only yields a 10 percent success rate of reimplantation. Once a tooth is knocked out, it begins to die within 15 minutes, and if not stored properly and within 60 minutes, artificial implants are the option for restoring a smile at the high cost of $3,000 initially and 10 times figure over a lifetime. “Time is very critical, the sooner we can see a patient to get back in, the better the chance of saving the tooth,” says Dr. Amber Pearson from Park Dental Maple Grove.
Park Dental’s initiative to make Save-A-Tooth kits available to local organizations has also helped to procure new business for the dental practices, by attracting new patients when inevitable dental injury occurs. “When the Save-A-Tooth kit is used in the event of an injury, the victim goes to the dentist who provided it for care,” says Caitlin Krasner, Director of Local Outreach at Phoenix-Lazerus, Inc. “In effect, we are seeing a kind of karmic domino effect that is good for the community and for the business,” she adds.
This new Samartian-style method of marketing has not gone unnoticed by Twin Cities media. Several TV stations have run news reports on Park Dental’s partnership with Save-A-Tooth, which has garnered even greater exposure for the dental group and helped to spread awareness about Save-A-Tooth being the standard of care for knocked out teeth.
