Based on Positive
Patient Feedback

Spear has always taken an empirical approach to dental education. Through the development of the Patient Education platform, we engaged a medical research firm to better understand patients’ reactions to videos.

Results showed:

  • 91% reported they would move forward with treatment after seeing a Spear Patient Education video in the lobby of their dentist’s office
  • 81% rated the educational value of chairside videos as excellent or very good

Our high-definition animations provide
clinical accuracy in an easy-to-grasp format

Powerful Information
in the Palm of Your Hand

Empower your patients with videos and supporting content that explain their cases in terms they can easily understand. With more than 110 animated videos designed by multimedia experts in conjunction with world-renowned Spear Resident Faculty, you have a full slate of multimedia ideal to:

Embed online

We provide simple code to allow your webmaster to easily place Patient Education videos on your practice website. Videos are also subtitled to be American Dental Association compliant.

Email or text

Sometimes patients need to go home and discuss options with a loved one prior to accepting treatment. Ensure nothing is lost in translation by sharing videos with them directly from your tablet app.

Printable handouts

For patients who prefer printed information, the platform allows you to create custom handouts that are easy to read and include supporting imagery from videos.

Make Your Waiting Room
More Engaging

The Patient Education platform includes more than 10 condition overview videos, such as those on hygiene habits and tooth wear, that are ideal to display in your waiting room. We studied the reactions of 400 adult dental patients who were shown our “Cracked Tooth” lobby video and asked a series of questions. Results showed:

  • 84% felt “wait and see” was a bad choice for small cracks (they became aware of the problem)
  • 86% felt repairing a cracked tooth prevents more work in the future (they understood the consequences of inaction)
  • 91% reported they would move forward with treatment after seeing the video
