West Hollywood, California (PRWEB) December 17, 2012
A public relations representative for Dr. Neil McLeod, a popular West Hollywood dentist, today announced the doctor’s development of a new dental instrument called the ‘Contact Marker’. The tool is designed to help cosmetic dentists fit crowns, onlays and veneers more accurately so it takes less time to perform the procedures.
The cosmetic dentist maintains a well-established dental practice which is more than seventy five years old and serves entire families including grandparents, parents and children. Dr. McLeod specializes in fine quality care with complete specialty support and his success is attributed to his drive for excellence. He strives for the greatest accuracy of fit for crowns, onlays and veneers which is why he developed the Contact Marker.
Dr. Neil McLeod said, “This little tool will make sure crowns fit perfectly the first time which is important because the less time my patients are in the chair the better it is for all of us.” Not only does he strive to provide what has been proven to work well for his patients, he also keeps abreast of new developments and technologies which cut costs and save time.
“Over the years I have experienced dental treatment in Germany, England, Oregon and New Mexico. Dr. Neil McLeod is one of the finest dentists there is. He is second to none. My husband and I have been in his care since we moved to L.A. in 1995 and our daughter has followed suit. He is a master of his profession and not only that, he is also very entertaining. - Monika Charlesworth – Real Estate Consultant
Dental crowns are also called caps and they’re expensive. Crowns can cost anywhere from several hundred to several thousand dollars and insurance providers only pay a small portion of the total cost. Traditionally, it takes several visits to install a crown, but with the new Contact Maker the number of visits may be reduced which in turn will reduce the overall cost of the procedure.
There are many techniques available to guide a dentist when he or she is adjusting the accuracy or fit on dental restorations many of which involve some element of educated guessing. That’s not good enough for doctor McLeod so he set out to find a better way to perform procedures and to improve his practice.
He sincerely wanted to find the exact and most accurate technique for adjusting dental restorations as quickly as possible and he set to designing and patenting the new highly effective dental instrument that’s now known as the Contact Marker. It is a stainless steel dental hand tool with a replaceable soft graphite marker which allows dentists to identify exactly where to adjust any restoration such as crowns, veneers or a removable bridge.
Doctor McLeod is a USC Dental School graduate who has been a practicing dentist since 1972, and has worked both in London and Los Angeles. In his final year at Guy's Hospital Dental School he was a recipient of the Alfred Rycroft Traveling Scholarship to Tufts University Dental School in Boston. After graduating from Guy's Hospital Dental School, he continued in hospital service there while working for his primary fellowship in the Royal College Of Surgeons.
