Delta Dental Plan to Offer Online Education Program


Carter, Ray, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Delta Dental Plan of Oklahoma has received approval from the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry to provide Oklahoma's dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants with online continuing dental education.

Approved for one-hour of continuing dental education credit, the Prevent Abuse and Neglect through Dental Awareness program was developed to help dentists and their dental staff to recognize some of the signs and symptoms of child abuse and neglect. The program also addresses the reporting process involved when cases of child abuse and neglect are detected.

"To help prevent the growing number of child abuse cases, every state has passed legislation to increase the reporting of suspected abuse and neglect, said Tad Mabry, with W.W. Hastings Indian Hospital in Tahlequah, and author of the program. "As mandated reporters of abuse, dentists are required to report any child suspected of being abused or neglected. We are very grateful to Delta Dental Plan of Oklahoma for making this important educational program available on their Web site and hope it will not only make it easy for dental practitioners to garner continuing dental education credit -- but more importantly -- to use this information to help stem the tide of abuse in Oklahoma."

Located at www.deltadentalok.org in the "Dentists" section, the program consists of an "Introduction" section, a 112-slide presentation and a test. Individuals passing the test will receive a certificate of completion and the appropriate form for submission to the Board of Dentistry to receive their continuing dental education credit.

More information is available from Tom Searls, corporate communications manager for Delta Dental Plan, at 607-2178.

OU Medical Center featured

The University of Oklahoma Medical Center will be featured on The Discovery Health Channel's The Critical Hour.

The first of four one-hour shows was televised Sunday. OU Medical Center was the first hospital to be featured on the new show. The second show featuring the hospital will run at 7 p.m. Sunday.

The first episode of the show featuring the OU Medical Center included two accidents occurring late at night in Oklahoma City.

The second episode features the story of a 17-year-old boy shot in the chest during a fight. Open-heart surgery reveals that the bullet has caused a spinal cord injury. Paramedics are later called to the home of an infant who has just had a frightening seizure. Medics must get her to the hospital so doctors can prevent another seizure and investigate the cause.

Dental facility opens

Michael K. Kirk has opened a new dental facility at 1057 NW Grand Blvd.

Grand Dental Studio is the new name for Kirk's dental practice.

"The name emphasizes that science and artistry are blended when it comes to providing patients with the highest levels of aesthetic dentistry," Kirk said.

"Grand Dental Studio is a welcome addition to the Western Avenue area where there are three miles of Oklahoma City's best restaurants, clubs, shops, and galleries," said Richard Duncan, vice president of MidFirst Bank and leader of the Western Avenue Association.

Grand Dental Studio provides general, cosmetic, and implant dental care.

Kirk has practiced dentistry since 1993. He is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry. Kirk received additional post-graduate training in dental implantology at the University of Texas.
