    Reducing Patient Stress through Office Design with Derrick Lai BArchSci, MArch, LEEDAP, OAA

    Have you ever been drawn to a beautiful clinic? What makes the space for the clinicians and the patients needs to be thought through. The aesthetics of a dental office are crucial to patient satisfaction. You want to reflect cleanliness without having a cold, sterile feel. Derrick Lai walks us through his process and what factors are important to consider when redesigning or building out a space.

    RDH’s Role in Diagnosing Pain with Dr. Mariela Padilla

    Join Andrew and Dr. Mariela Padilla as they talk about what to do when a patient comes into your office with Orofacial Pain.

Dr. Padilla talks to us about the ABCs - remember to, pay attention, believe, and collaborate!
    Dr. Padilla started her clinical practice as a general dentist in 1990 and then dedicated herself solely to Orofacial Pain and Temporomandibular Disorders. Dr. Padilla assumed the direction of the Orofacial Pain Residency at USC in 2022.
