FREE DENTAL SEMINARS
For the last several months Dr. Bonnick and his staff have held free dental seminars, at The Aristotle Institute, to help those with dental phobias overcome their fears. The seminars have been a wonderful asset to our lives and the lives of our patients, as they are able to learn first hand what causes the phobias, and how to overcome them. Dr Bonnick takes time to introduce his staff to new visitors, and even offers exciting door prizes.

DENTISTRY FROM THE HEART-2ND ANNUAL EVENT
On February 19, 2010 our office is holding an event called “Dentistry From the Heart.” The purpose of the event is to provide free dentistry to those who need it the most. These are patients not covered under Medicaid or Insurance plans who lost a job due to the tough economy. Our practice is providing a filling, cleaning, or extraction to the patients of our practice and also patients referred to us by Guilford County Adult Dental Program, House of Prayer and many others. Please call the office today and see if you are eligible to participate in this awesome program!
News 14 Carolina featured the Dentistry with a Heart story highlighting Dr. Bonnick’s participation and services to the uninsured and under-insured. You can view the story here.
Our last “Dentistry With a Heart” event was held April 13, 2009. It was an amazing day and the feelings we got from the patients made us feel like “a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.” The staff felt that one way we could show gratitude to the community for helping our practice achieve leadership status was through this volunteer dental service. Dr. Bonnick believes in giving to those who have helped us be successful, and to those truly in need. The philosophy is giving to those in need not “giving back.” As a forward looking office we look forward to being able to help more people in the future.We found this submission on MSNBC.com, and thank our patients for noticing and encouraging our involvement in the community.

DR. BONNICK’S TABLE CLINIC ON BONE EXPANSION IN THE ANTERIOR MAXILLA PLACES IN THE TOP THREE AT THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF IMPLANT DENTISTRY ANNUAL CONVENTION IN NEW ORLEANS LOUISIANA NOVEMBER15-18, 2009
“The information I presented helps many patient to avoid an additional surgical site healing when bone is removed from the chin. This technique of bone expansion was created by Dr. Hilt Tatum and published by Dr. Borgner et. al in the Journal of Oral Implantology. I like the fact that the patient’s own limited bone is used and expanded to accommodate a special D implant created by Dr. Tatum, the doctor controls the preparation for the replacement tooth by preparing the specially prepared coronal part of the implant.”
This was the first time Dr. Bonnick entered the table clinic competition and we will see further use of this advanced technique as more clinicians spend time and effort learning the appropriate skills with the help of mentors trained in the technique.
