Do You Know Who Your Oral Surgeon Is?

November 20th, 2013 by ifi-admin

It would not be the first time that a down economy has produced tradesmen and specialists out of thin air that profess to have an expertise in just about everything from building homes to laying new tile in your bathroom. In hard times, everyone is looking to putting food on the table and jobs are often scarce for what was previously an individual’s selected profession. Unfortunately, the dental profession is no different. As discretionary funds are redistributed by patients to other more critical life-sustaining items, the professional in both dentistry and medicine may begin looking to taking on treatments that he or she may otherwise not have considered doing or at the very least would have sent to a specialist. In its worst form this practice can result in a fraudulent misrepresentation of the professional’s education, ability and even licensure as it relates to what they are providing for the patient.

Nowhere in the healthcare professions is this seen more prevalently than in the field of dentistry.

Dental Implants… Not Rocket Science

June 15th, 2010 by ifi-admin

More than just a few of our hard earned tax dollars have been spent lately in the midst of a recession on attempting to make something out of nothing. While I can’t say this is anything new, one is compelled to bring reality into focus when looking over the taxpayer funded marketing used recently by the University to manufacture a “Dental Implant Center” out of thin air in an effort to profit a small self-aggrandized team of providers.
