Did you know that 20% of adults have obstructive sleep apnea? That makes sleep apnea a more prevalent disease than both diabetes and asthma. And your risk of a myocardial infarction is more likely due to sleep apnea than smoking.
Dr. Klein recently went to a dental sleep course given in Harrisburg and he is now trained in making the Somno-Med appliance to help with mild-moderate cases of obstructive sleep apnea.
Ask Dr. Klein about this next time you are in!

Many patients have voiced their concerns recently about dental radiographs or x-rays. Much of their concern has arisen from a recent study which has been quoted on local and national tv programs.
The American Dental Association has issued the following statement on this study:
We use digital x-rays in our office along with a thyroid collar to reduce exposure.
But here is a comparison of different types of radiation (note a full series of x-rays is less than atmospheric exposure):
We constantly receive compliments on our office design. My father, the late Joel S. Klein DDS had the vision to hire Dr. Mike Unthank of Unthank Design to create our space. Dr. Unthank is a dentist and an architect and is based out of Nebraska. My wife and I visited his office and toured several dental offices he designed in 2005. Dr. Unthank and his team are incredible. They not only improved our aesthetics but they lessened the stress levels in the office by improving the work-flow. Any dentist designing a new office should take a trip out to Nebraska. I could not imagine practicing in an office without Dr. Unthank’s help. http://unthank.com/

Dr. Klein just returned from the annual Hinman Dental Conference in Atlanta. He took some amazing courses, including one on new materials which will change esthetic dentistry. Dr. Klein also attended a course given by the “Dean of Dentistry” , Dr. Gordon Christiansen. Dr. Christiansen shared some interesting new techniques and insights into dentistry
By now, numbness is something most of us are used to at the dentist after an injection of local anesthetic. Dr. Klein now has a proven way that may speed up the return of sensation in the soft tissues of the mouth after routine care.
Numbness can be limiting, affecting your speech, your smile, and your ability to drink. You may even catch yourself drooling.
OraVerse® is a breakthrough that reverses unwanted lingering numbness after routine dental procedures where local anesthetic containing a vasoconstrictor was used. In clinical trials, the patients were able to regain normal sensation twice as fast vs. the control group.
Ask Dr. Klein how Oraverse can help!

Dr. Klein was interviewed by CBS 21 News about an FDA warning for broken electric toothbrushes: http://bit.ly/xWaWaV
The FDA issued the following advice to parents, caregivers and consumers:
- Before using the Spinbrush, inspect it for any damage or loose brush bristles. If you find any, do not use the brush. Report it to Church & Dwight, which can be reached toll-free at 1-800-352-3384 or 1-800-561-0752.
- Make sure the brush head is connected tightly to the brush handle, and test the brush outside of your mouth before using. If the connection feels loose or the brush head easily detaches from the handle, do not use the brush. Report it to Church & Dwight.
- Use care not to bite down on the brush head while brushing.
- To prevent injuries, always supervise children and adults who may need assistance when using the Spinbrush.
