Chicago, Illinois oral surgeon, Steven Koos DDS, MD, was recently featured in the February edition of Dental Products Report.
Online PR News – 14-March-2014 – Chicago, IL – Chicago, IL – An interview with Chicago oral surgeon Dr. Steven Koos was recently featured in the February 2014 edition of Dental Products Report, the dental industry’s leading product news publication featuring the latest advances in equipment, supplies, materials and services. The article titled Making An Impact introduced readers to the Chicago dentist who believes that a safe, eco-friendly and tranquil environment makes a difference in how he operates his dental practice.
During the interview, Dr. Koos shared his belief that health care is at the forefront of a paradigm shift and explained how as a physician and a dentist he is hoping to bridge the gap and transform the dental industry as well. As the owner and director of the nation’s first and only green oral surgery practice, ORA® Oral Surgery & Implant Studio, Dr. Koos explained the importance he places on practicing eco-friendly dentistryTM, as well as creating a distinctly unique experience for his patients.
Dr. Koos shared how he has accomplished his goal by incorporating evidence-based design and sustainability in the creation of his Chicago Loop oral surgery practice. When planning the office design, he wanted to ensure a safe and non-toxic environment for both his staff and his patients. In doing so, one of the areas of the practice that received a great deal of attention was the sterilization area. He also wanted to create an atmosphere that was comfortable, relaxing and inviting, so he focused on a modern and tranquil design, even when it came to how the sterilization area was designed. Dr. Koos knows that first impressions are critical to a new patient’s decision-making process and believes the quality of a facility and its equipment, as well as the overall atmosphere, is an integral factor in making a good first impression.
“I believe that infection control, sterility and cleanliness are top priorities of patients and therefore I prominently feature my sterilization area adjacent to the main patient hallway and have designed it in a chic and stylish way so that patients understand the importance we place on sterilization while also feeling that our state-of-the-art equipment doesn’t detract from the warm feeling we are trying to evoke,” says Dr. Koos. “In contrast, most dental practices hide their sterilization area behind doors where patients can’t see it.”
The Chicago oral surgeon also went on during the interview to provide advice about how dental practices can become greener and more environmentally friendly. As Dr. Koos explains, “The journey toward significant carbon footprint reduction does not need to be daunting – create a green team, set incremental goals, and enjoy the process!”
