Why Whiten Your Teeth

In the world of GLO, not much is better than a set of pearly whites. But we also know that cosmetic dentistry is about more than beauty.

  • 82% of Americans believe straight, bright teeth help get you ahead in life (Health Policy Institute, 2015)
  • $11 billion are spent on whitening products or procedures every year (Oral Health Group, 2018), according to research on https://www.electricteeth.com/dental-statistics/.

Cosmetic dentistry can help dentists, and their practice teams have more meaningful conversations with their patients, leading to better experiences and improved quality of care. GLO teeth whitening is a fantastic tool to help you achieve this outcome. When a treatment results in a good experience, this leads to more compliance when additional treatments are needed like teeth straightening, root canals, and crowns.

GLO Science Professional already has thousands of dental practices on board, in addition to our thriving GLO Science consumer products. How do we do it? The proof is in the pudding, or in this case, nachos! One of our GLO dentists is Dr. John Minichetti, who was recently interviewed by Dr. Paul Goodman, A.K.A. Dr. Nacho of Dental Nachos along with Jennifer Vasquez, RDH BS, Director of Sales Acceleration and Training at GLO Science Professional. 

Dr. Minichetti had been using other whitening systems for years and never was truly happy with the process. That’s when he discovered GLO! He explained, “I incorporated it in my practice, I'm going to say, close to…10 years ago. It's just part of the practice now. I wouldn't think of using any other kind of bleaching system.” It was shocking for him to hear that some dentists don’t offer teeth whitening in their offices.

Dr. Minichetti feels that even offering the take-home teeth whitening kits alone is a no brainer. Since some dental offices can’t provide chairside teeth whitening due to space or other circumstances, the GLO at Home kits can be a turnkey option. GLO is happy to offer several ways to customize whitening treatments to what works for your office. Dr. Minichetti does offer chairside whitening and recommends additional treatments at home that fit in with a patient’s busy schedule.

In the podcast, Dr. Nacho likens whitening maintenance to working out with a personal trainer. He says, “It's like if you're at the gym and workout with the trainer, as much as I want to, I can't just go eat pizza at home all the time. Some shared responsibility, and I've seen that.”  He feels GLO has a lot in common with many services that help people lead better lives. “…when you can celebrate and bring something positive to the patient experience, it's such a big, big part of what we do.”
