Here is a way to determine if you are ready for change.  Ask two or three of your technicians what is their favorite song and then ask yourself what is your favorite song.  If you have never heard of their music, you have closed your mind to change.  You may not like the sound but you must accept that the culture of music is always changing.  Enjoy what …

The Road to Excellence Student and Teacher The Pathway to New Millennium Optimal Oral Care

Lao Tzu comments: “When the student is ready the teacher will appear. When the student is truly ready... The teacher will disappear!”I have been blessed to take on the role of student and teacher through my last twenty years in companion animal oral care.

Veterinary Oral Radiowave Radiosurgery (RWRS)
Oral Radiowave Radiosurgery (RWRS) in the New Millennium evolved from electrocautery instruments developed in the veterinary field over forty years ago. Radiosurgery today uses high frequency radio signals to perform fine atraumatic characteristic incisions in the oral cavity. The main advantage over other cutting modalities centers around a pressureless cut with minimal bleeding that is safe, fast, and efficient. Radiosurgery permits planing of soft tissue, eliminates scar tissue formation, and minimizes post-operative discomfort. The electrodes are self-sterilizing. Radiosurgery prevents seeding of bacteria into the incision site.
