We are excited to host our first annual Operation: Christmas Smile! We will be selecting two families this Christmas season to perform free dental care to. If you know of a family having hardship, or down on their luck, with no dental insurance and in need of dental treatment, please complete this link: Nomination Submission Form
Oak Ridge hosts the Great Pumpkin Event every October for trick-or-treating for the community. Michelle, Maria, Julie, Gwyn and Dr. Sam Bartlett were here on behalf of DeVaney Dentistry handing out candy and toothbrushes!
Every fall, DeVaney Dentistry gathers for a retreat to review policies to ensure our entire team is consistent. This year we decided to support local businesses and stayed local. We held our meeting in a conference room at the Proximity Hotel.
Dr. DeVaney and his dental assistants (Valarie, Amanda & Ashley) were in Charleston and completed their re-certification course in IV Sedation and medical emergencies. This renewed their ACLS (advanced cardiovascular life support) certification (a step-above basic CPR), ensuring safety as our #1 priority! This course expands our IV Sedation training and different scenarios of potential emergencies, taken with Dr. Cory Pickens through the Academy of Dental & Medical Anesthesia. Check out our Facebook page for some of our photos from the course!
Stephanie & Julie went to Utah for a weekend to learn how to file medical insurance in the dental office. This course was with Devdent through Henry Schein and explained the ins and outs of medical billing. This will particularly come in handy with diagnostic scans and surgical procedures! Don’t be surprised if our front office team now asks for a copy of your medical insurance card next time you’re in!
