New York Dentist Brushing Dental Fear Aside With Web Cams

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Going to the dentist is a horrifying experience for many people, but one New York dentist hopes to brush their fears aside with web cams he’s put into his dental office.

Dr. Arthur Zuckerman put the 24-hour cameras into two rooms in his dental office five years ago to show people exactly what goes on during a dental procedure and makes the footage available at

So far, he says it’s helping his patients overcome their deep-rooted fear of dental work – especially the kiddies.

Just as important: Zuckerman says it has helped calm the nerves of patients’ tense parents and spouses because they can watch from home or work and see exactly what’s happening to their loved one.

He says the “dent cam” has even helped bring in new patients from as far away as China who saw the web cam and wanted to get drilled by him.
