Getting people to share their stories is the core of every journalist’s work. Whether covering politics, sports, local events or dentistry, listening to people explaining the things they know and believe is the first step in the process of gathering what will become news. From there the process turns to finding the best way to arrange that information so it is both intriguing and informative, but without people willing to share their knowledge and experiences, there’s little for a journalist to do.
Personally, I like to stay busy. So as I join the team here at Dentalcompare in the role of Editor, I see my new position as a job focused on listening to and interacting with the people who come to this site to learn about products for their dental practices. I want to make Dentalcompare the best possible resource for the information you need to stay up to date on the latest in the dental industry, and the place you turn to when looking for the products that fit your practice and maybe make things just a little bit better and easier for you, your staff and of course your patients.
While journalism can sometimes be a bad word these days, I’ve worn the title with pride throughout my professional career. I started as a cub reporter at small town newspaper and have made stops at a range of print and online publications with my beat including topics as wide ranging as local news, underground music, and for the last 5 years, dental products. I believe strongly in the value of objective information and the power of the internet to bring stories to life in new and engaging ways. I’m extremely excited about the opportunity I now have to work with and for you as the Editor of this website.
The heart of Dentalcompare is our comprehensive product database which allows you to view detailed information on dental products and compare their specifications side by side. My goal is to surround these product listings with relevant news, clinical tips, expert commentary and unbiased information that can help you determine which new innovations are right for your practice and which just don’t fit with the way you like to work.
To make this happen, I need to hear from you. The most important part of my job is listening to the stories dental professionals have to tell. What products, technologies and topics are you curious about? Did a new product save the day and make you a hero to a new patient who is now likely a patient for life? Was that new material you were excited to try not quite up to par with your expectations? Did what seemed like a minor change in the way your practice operates have an immeasurable impact on everything?
Let me know, I want to share your stories so others can avoid pitfalls and realize similar successes. Dentalcompare will work best when the content is an accurate reflection of the industry, which means it partially needs to be an accurate reflection of you. The most important part of my new job is listening to clinicians and other dental professionals, and I’m thrilled about getting to work.
