New Year, Reflections on Where We Started...
The month of October marks the start of the Knight Dental Group fiscal year. This year, we not only celebrate a great 2012, but we also celebrate our company's 40th Anniversary and the exciting history that got us to this point.
For the last several years, we have kicked off our new year with our annual Strategic Planning Meeting for our shareholders, managers, sales team, product line managers, and a few other key personnel.
In addition to our usual business meeting, this year we held a celebration for all of our staff, family, founders and several long-term clients. We're excited to share some of that with you in this edition of our newsletter as we thank you for being such a strong support of our past, present and bright future!
|KNIGHT'S 40th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION|
An Exciting Night of Reflection
Knight Dental Group celebrated our 40th Anniversary with dinner, dancing and a night of celebration on September 22nd at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club. The event was attended by both employees and clients, as well as Knight founder Bob Warner, CDT.

The highlight of the evening was a heartfelt thank you to all employees from laboratory CEO Warren Rogers and President Barbara Wojdan, CDT, AAACD, for their devotion to both clients and their patients. Their presentation to the group also included a big welcome to the future of dental laboratory technology.

KDG'S MYSMILE PREVIEW IMAGING
Show Your Patients Who They Can Be
Throughout time, it has been proven that a picture can be worth significantly more than mere words. This can be especially true when it comes to helping your patient visualize what contemporary cosmetic dentistry can do for them. With KDG's MySmile™ PreView Imaging, we use your digital photos and specific case details to create a before-after visual representation of what your patient's smile makeover will look like - within the framework of their own image.
MySmile™ PreView Imaging can be a reliable diagnostic and treatment planning tool that will allow your patients to experience a simulated preview of their new smile. It can effectively assist in communicating the patient's unique treatment plan, promoting the success of cosmetic restorations and yielding greater patient understanding and case acceptance.
- Increases patient enthusiasm through effective visual smile reference.
- Illustrates the potential results of your recommendations.
- Enhances communication and acceptance of your treatment plan.
