Studio Z Dental, the Premier Green Dentist for the Front Range, Introduces the Use of Buffered Anesthetic for Patient Comfort at Their Dental Office in Louisville, CO


Louisville, CO (PRWEB) April 15, 2015

Since 1981, Studio Z Dental has been offering the best dental services to the Louisville area and has been established as the Premier Green Dentist for the Front Range. Studio Z Dental is one of the few dentists in the Boulder area offering mercury-free and mercury-safe holistic dentistry and family cosmetic dentistry. Their services include everything a traditional dentist’s office would offer, including dental implants, lumineers, teeth whitening, and veneers, as well as an established reputation for excellence and care.

Dr. Tom Zyvoloski, DDS has been voted top dentist by the Consumers’ Research Council and Studio Z Dental has been recognized as one of the most conscious and innovative in the area because of their attention to detail and dedication to holistic dentistry services. Studio Z Dental has worked hard to provide the very best working conditions for their staff and unparalleled service for Boulder Valley patients.

In line with their goals of offering more than the average dentist and providing their patients with a number of treatment alternatives, Studio Z Dental has emphasized minimizing pain and maximizing happiness. Their innovative services have recently been expanded to the use of buffered anesthetic for patient comfort.

Buffered anesthetic is commonly used in medical procedures and causes far less pain than typical injections given at most dental offices. The sting, pinch and soreness at the injection site is typical with traditional local anesthetic, but with buffered anesthetic, patients can expect to leave the office with minimal tissue soreness when the anesthetic wears off.

This is achieved by mixing the anesthetic with a buffering agent, which neutralizes the pH, thereby eliminating the pain — a matter of simple chemistry that adds to the comfort of the patient’s experience. Additionally, buffering anesthetic also delivers immediate numbing and much-reduced post-injection tissue injury. After experiencing the benefits of buffered anesthetic, patients can now look forward to future visits without the common dread so many people commonly associate with their dentist appointments.

The Institute for Healthcare Optimization (IHO) announces workshop at 2015 Patient Flow Summit


NEWTON, MA (PRWEB) February 23, 2015

The Institute for Healthcare Optimization (IHO) is pleased to announce a half-day workshop, Applying Queuing Theory to Health Care: A Necessary Step Toward Improving Quality of Care and Margin that will be taught by Dr. Eugene Litvak at the 2015 Patient Flow Summit on Monday, May 4.

A changing healthcare landscape is driving hospital administrators to consider ways to improve hospital operations to provide quality care more efficiently. Dr. Litvak, who has been teaching queuing theory to clinicians for many years, will explain how the effective use of queuing theory can positively impact both the quality of care and the fiscal performance of healthcare systems.

During the 4-hour workshop, Dr. Litvak will introduce several different queuing theory models and walk attendees through exercises that will help them understand how to apply those theories in their own healthcare systems. Dr. Litvak will explain how different queuing models can be used to address various healthcare problems such as nurse staffing shortages, placement of patients in inappropriate units due to bed unavailability and extended delays for patients seeking access to care.

Nurses attending the workshop can earn up to 4 CNE contact hours for attending the session.

“Dr. Litvak is a pioneer in hospital patient flow,” said Derek Hays, Patient Flow Summit Executive Director. “We are glad that Summit attendees will have a chance to hear from him at this year’s event. He brings proven process and expertise for hospital leaders to learn from.”

In its 8th year, the annual Patient Flow Summit brings together hospital administrators and other healthcare professionals who are focused on improving hospital operations and the quality of patient care. Leaders from hospitals across the country will present on a variety of topics such as readmission reduction, capacity management, and population health. This year’s event will be at the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa, May 4-7.

Organizations presenting at the 2015 Summit include: The Advisory Board Company, Intermountain Healthcare, Robert Wood Johnson, UCLA Health, New York-Presbyterian, The Ottawa Hospital, UW Health, Maimonides Medical Center, The University of Chicago Medicine, Tampa General Hospital, Legacy Health, Eastern Maine Medical Center, Community Regional Medical Center, Presbyterian Medical Group, and the New Jersey Hospital Association.
