    A dental professional reviews and e-quips himself with new electric toothbrush June 19, 2018, 4:50 p.m.

    I have tried all the toothbrushes on the market and enjoy using the quip toothbrush, the so-called Tesla of toothbrushes. I decided I needed to try it out and I was pleasantly surprised. It runs on a AAA battery that is easy to replace and eliminates the need for an electric cord in a wet environment. The absence of a cord and rechargeable battery leaves less of an environmental footprint which is conscientious. They also keep you accountable to change your brush heads with their subscription program which delivers brush heads automatically every 3 months. Its design has a sleek and ergonomic handle making the toothbrush as maneuverable as a manual toothbrush, while adding the sonic mechanism to boost the cleaning effect! I get the best results when I brush just as if I was using a manual toothbrush and that’s how I instruct my patients to do it.  Finally, the cost is not inhibitive (starting at $25), which allows you to get multiple ones for your family and travel without worry. In short, the quip toothbrush does the job of an electric toothbrush without losing the benefits of a manual brush. The quip itself is clean, conscientious to the environment and cost-effective.

    How 4 small businesses use technology to thrive Feb. 13, 2017, 11:14 p.m.

    Cloud-based software sinks teeth into patient info

    Slim Dental, a New York City-based dental practice, uses technology to drive improvements in recruiting, human resources management and marketing. But the real game-changer lies in using technology to improve customer service, says founder Stephen Lim.

    Doctors can write their notes and see their schedules, X-rays and patient records from anywhere by using cloud-based, patient-management software. It allows them to focus on providing top-notch patient care while at the office.

    Employees use the cloud-based system to pull up records at any of the practice''s three locations, which provides convenience for patients who move or change jobs within the city, Lim says.

    Tip: Move to a cloud-based system to untether employees from their computers and filing cabinets, increasing both customer convenience and productivity.

    I honestly look forward to going to my dentist! I never did before and had been to multiple dentists. Dr Lim's whole Rockerfeller practice is amazing. The dentists really engage with you and openly discuss all your questions and concerns. I have had fillings, mercury filling replaced, cleaning and wisdom teeth extractions in the chair. The dentists are also perfectionists and will keep making the slightest alterations on fillings until they feel right. My husband had a severe reaction to anaesthetic and was made to feel so comfortable and it was handled so well! I have sensitivities to a lot of medicines and they were so patient and caring. We are not easy patients. Also they have great technology and equipment. Clean practice.

    About Front Desk: They are good at their job, but could be a little less robotic and friendly

    Doctor Lim is fantastic. This was my first pain free dental visit and had a lot of work done. A friend who has been seeing Dr. Lim for many years told me how great he was and my friend was completely spot on.

    I know this doctor: Less than a year
