Northern California Oral Surgery Practice Unveils Innovative New Website with Dynamic Educational Videos for Patients

April 29, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
April 29, 2014 - In today's digital world, videos are becoming increasingly popular for communicating information, especially when it comes to health care. Since videos are likely to increase an individual's understanding of a service by up to 74 percent, according to Digital Sherpa, utilizing this medium can be highly effective for oral surgery practices to deliver critical information to patients. The board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons of Santa Rosa & Rohnert Park Oral Surgery understand this new mode of learning and are announcing today that they launched a comprehensive website that showcases videos on pre- and post-operative instructions, information about wisdom teeth extractions and dental implants, tutorials from real-life patients, and more.

The goal of the practice's new website at is to provide current and prospective patients with detailed information on procedures directly from the health care professionals performing the surgeries. Additional content, videos, graphics, and articles offer visitors testimonials from past patients, extensive information on maintaining proper oral health and upcoming events hosted by the team.

"We're thrilled to provide our community with this new resource, giving them all the information they need in order to feel good about the procedure they're coming in for," said Leonard Tyko, DDS, MD, FACS. "More common than not, people experience anxiety before undergoing major surgeries, so this is one of our ways to help put patients at ease, ensure they have pre- and post-op instructions, and help them better understand what to expect."

Three oral surgeons treat patients throughout Sonoma County between two offices, including one in Santa Rosa and another in Rohnert Park, Calif. Their mission is to earn and nurture a relationship with their patients, dentists and physicians that is built on genuine care, respect and non-judgmental consideration of their needs and concerns. As a progressive oral and maxillofacial surgery practice that pays special attention to excellence, compassion and proficiency, Santa Rosa & Rohnert Park Oral Surgery strives to deliver high-quality, comprehensive care to their local and extended communities.

"Patients seeking information about general tooth extraction, wisdom teeth removal, dental implants, exposure and bracketing of impacted teeth, sinus lift, bone grafting, and various other procedures can find informative short-format videos that explain everything in detail," said Christopher S. Daniel, DDS, MD, who primarily practices in the Rohnert Park location.

What is especially important for patients to understand is the primary reason they are referred to an oral surgeon for certain dental procedures. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons undergo a significant amount of specialized training as part of their residency, so they are qualified to administer a range of anesthesia options, ensuring patients are pain-free and safe during their procedure. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are also the only recognized dental specialists that are surgically trained in an American Dental Association-accredited hospital-based residency program for a minimum of four years. They train alongside medical residents in internal medicine, general surgery, anesthesiology, plastic surgery, emergency medicine, and a number of other specialty areas.
