Get to know local practices utilizing Grin to reach their patients remotely through our orthodontic Partner Series. This month, we’re featuring Tottori Orthodontics.
If you’re in the Honolulu area, you may be familiar with Tottori Orthodontics. They are an established provider with two locations—Honolulu and Kapolei—and provide their patients with innovative technology like Grin, lingual braces, and more.
Dr. Steven Tottori is a family orthodontist that’s been making Hawaiians smile for over 30 years. Fun fact: he was in school to be an engineer but one summer with his uncle, who was also a dentist, changed his entire trajectory. Once Dr. Tottori began studying dentistry, he was introduced to orthodontistry and the rest was history.
When discussing the biggest opportunities to help his practice grow, two topics were top of mind:
- Providing patients innovative technology to help with treatment
- Access to two-way communication
Providing Patients Innovative Technology to Help with Treatment
Implementing the newest orthodontic technology within his practice set them ahead of local competition. This includes offering Grin and Lingual braces. Not only do these tools help his team and patients with treatment, but it opens up exclusive opportunities to market directly to its community.
Access to Two-Way Communication
Tracking and refining a patient’s treatment is no easy feat, especially when doing it in an analog process with no visibility or communication between appointments. This is where Dr. Tottori and his team have found particular value in Grin.
“Grin allows me to communicate more directly with the patients,” said Dr. Tottori. “That’s helped a lot. And they can see how their treatment is going. If it’s mistracking, we can catch it early to work on refinements or reduce in-person appointments if on track. Creating that additional communication channel to where you can assess and tell them, like, ‘this is my expertise on this.’ Patients appreciate it. It also gives them an outlet to ask more questions that I wouldn’t necessarily get otherwise.”
We appreciate the opportunity to give our orthodontic partners, like Dr. Tottori, market advantage and the tools to connect with their patients to help achieve a beautiful, healthy grin.
