The Spodak Dental Group Completes 45th Anniversary Celebration by Changing 45 Lives and Donating More Than $107,000 in Dental Treatment

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- The Spodak Dental Group team is honored and proud to have been a staple in the Delray Beach community since 1976. As their way of saying thanks and giving back, they spent their entire 45th Anniversary Year providing complimentary dental services to community members who otherwise wouldn't be able to fit needed care into their lifestyle. Not only did they help to improve the lives of 45 community members and donate more than $107,000 in dental treatment, they also partnered with local non-profits and community organizations to help them achieve their goals.

"While I aspire to create a legacy for my family in our community, I'm hopeful that we're creating the same for my team members, who are equally dedicated to our cause of service," said Dr. Craig Spodak, general dentist at Spodak Dental Group. "Being in business for 45 years not only means that you're doing something right, it means that your community needs and values you, and there's no better way to show our appreciation than by giving back in the best way that we know how: helping others to smile."

In a continuing effort to align with their core values, "Why we C.L.I.C.," the team of more than 40 team members provided life-changing donations and community outreach as their "thank you" for the community that has supported them since 1976. The core values include:

C: Create a "WOW" experience for ourselves and our patients

L: Lead with authenticity and integrity

I: Inspire each other to achieve remarkable results

C: Cultivate community by providing support and positive communication

To celebrate each core value, the team donated 45 smiles (needed dental treatments) to community members who were in desperate need of care; provided 45 community service hours to local organizations; donated 45 hours to aspiring dental professionals in an effort to better the field of dentistry and help others achieve their professional goals; and cultivated team relationships in the community by hosting 45 hours of social events, respectively.

The Group also teamed up with the Wounded Veterans Relief Fund and Operation120 to provide life-changing dentistry to local veterans who don't have dental coverage but who are in need of dental care.

The year-long event was held from June 2021 through May 2022. Overall, the team was able to provide a varying degree of dental services to community members in need. Everything was donated, including a routine cleaning for a patient who couldn't afford it, to a smile makeover for a patient whose quality of life was minimal due to her inability to chew.

The Spodak Dental Group, 2017 Inc. 5000 honoree, has evolved to become South Florida's premier, comprehensive dental facility, and comprises a world-class association of dental professionals poised to provide full-service dental care second-to-none in both scope and skill. The Spodak Dental Group team includes General and Restorative Dentists, Endodontists, Periodontists, Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Master Ceramic Artists and Anesthesiologists, as well as one of the nation's only in-office dental labs.

The Spodak Group Offers Free Wellness Scans: The Group continues to provide comprehensive care for their family of patients

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- The Spodak Dental Group team of dental professionals now offers free digital wellness scans in a continued effort to provide the very best comprehensive care to their family of patients.

"Offering free digital wellness scans is a tremendous value we offer our patients because it provides us a deeper understanding of their oral and overall health, which allows us to render a greater scope of care," said Dr. Craig Spodak, general dentist at Spodak Dental Group. "There is a great link between oral health and systemic health, and our team of general and specialty dentists has a great opportunity to help our family of patients maintain and achieve optimum health."

The mouth is the gateway to the body and a direct link to systemic health. Without proper cleaning and regular maintenance, bacteria in the mouth can lead to oral infection, such as tooth decay and gum infections. These infections, if left untreated, can cause various diseases and conditions including cardiovascular disease, endocarditis, pregnancy issues, and pneumonia. Patients who suffer from diabetes, AIDS/HIV, osteoporosis and Alzheimer's disease also have a greater chance of oral issues due to complications from these conditions.

The Spodak Dental Group team is proud to offer all current and future patients a free digital wellness scan, which takes less than five minutes and is painless. The scan will show doctors any current concerns, including recession, chipping/wearing of teeth, malocclusion, signs of oral cancer, tooth erosion and more, so they can best address any issues. The scan will also be used to track differences in oral health over time, which is helpful as patients experience lifestyle and health changes.

The use of state-of-the-art digital technology falls in line with the Group's commitment to provide their patients with the most up-to-date systems and dental offerings available, with a goal to offer an unparalleled dental and human experience.

The Spodak Dental Group, 2017 Inc. 5000 honoree, has evolved to become South Florida's premier, comprehensive dental facility, and comprises a world-class association of dental professionals poised to provide full-service dental care second-to-none in both scope and skill.

Since 2020, Candid has brought high-quality clear aligners and patient support to dental practices and dental service organizations across the United States.

With the help of CandidPro's technology and software, dentists will now be able to not only move patients' teeth into a healthy position, but also scale their clear aligner cases.

CandidRx™, a patent-pending prescription, was built to treat the majority of malocclusions from mild to complex, with technology supported by experienced orthodontists. Additionally, CandidPro offers careful oversight into patients' progress without impacting chair time via their remote CandidMonitoring™ platform.

"We're building a movement that empowers dentists with the tools and support they need to meet the growing patient demand for clear aligners," says Candid's Senior Vice President, Brian Ganey. "Our approach gives our partners everything they need to take on more cases and drive explosive growth."

The Spodak Dental Group Transitions to Four-Day Work Week

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- The Spodak Dental Group transitioned to a four-day work week in 2021 with a goal to take the very best care of each team member. After the turmoil of a 2020 year filled with the uncertainty, stress and additional regulations due to COVID-19, the family-owned company realized that there was a great opportunity to provide each team member with a flexible schedule that supports a greater work life balance.

"We focus on providing our patients with an amazing human experience in our office, so it made sense to dedicate similar focus to our valued team members," said Dr. Craig Spodak, general dentist at Spodak Dental Group. "Allowing our team members to work four days a week provides them with the additional support they need to live their best lives in and out of the office."

Studies show that reducing the amount of days that an employee has to work not only increases productivity and engagement, but also reduces the amount of sick and personal days requested.

The Spodak Dental Group is proud to be a team member-focused company and offers each team member the benefits that matter most to them, whether that be a flexible work schedule with remote work options, 401(k) matching, paid continuing education courses, company-sponsored social events and team building retreats, and more.

The Spodak Dental Group Offers Helps Sleep Apnea Patients Reduce Risk of COVID-19 Infections

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- New research found that patients who have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may be at a higher risk of COVID-19 infection. To help patients who suffer from OSA, Dr. Tiffany Dudley and the Spodak Dental Group team are offering complimentary consultations to offer education and treatment options.

"Treating patients who suffer from sleep apnea is one of the most important services we offer as dentists," said Dr. Tiffany Dudley, general dentist at Spodak Dental Group. "With the additional short- and long-term complications associated with the COVID-19 virus, it's even more pressing to help our patients and future patients manage their sleep apnea."

The new report, based on more than 80,000 health records, suggests positive airflow pressure therapy can reduce a patient's risk of infection.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a very common and potentially life-threatening medical disorder that occurs when the soft tissue in a person's throat repeatedly collapses and blocks the airway during sleep. These partial reductions and complete pauses in breathing can last up to 30 seconds and can occur as many as 100 times per night, which lead to a lack of oxygen to a person's organs.

Untreated OSA increases a person's risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, depression, memory loss and more. Both men and women of any age or body type can suffer from the condition.

Dr. Dudley is offering complimentary sleep apnea screenings and 30-minute virtual consultations for anyone who feels he or she might suffer from sleep apnea. Please visit http://www.sdgvirtual.com/ to schedule a consultation.

Dr. Rodney Kryzhanovskiy Joins the Spodak Dental Group Team

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- Dr. Rodney Kryzhanovskiy, a general dentist with a passion for transforming lives, joins the admired team of general and specialty dentists at the Spodak Dental Group. He strives to relate to each patient and understand their needs, desires and concerns, and to help them achieve optimal dental health that aligns with their lifestyle.

"Dr. Rodney is a wonderful addition to our team and we are excited to have him provide our family of patients with unparalleled dental care," said Dr. Craig Spodak, general dentist at Spodak Dental Group. "His desire to connect with his patients and help them achieve their smile goals aligns with our desire to elevate the dental experience and provide a truly memorable visit. We look forward to a great future together."

For Dr. Rodney, the path to becoming a dentist wasn't clear or easy. He was born in Russia and moved to the States with his family when he was 3 years old. They lived in New York until he was 15 years old, and moved to many of the boroughs due to his father looking for work. As an immigrant family, dentistry was considered a luxury and he did not have any exposure to it as a child. However, the story changed when he and his family moved to Florida where he completed high school.

During his undergrad, he was working several jobs, one of which was in a restaurant as a server. One of his regular patrons was a dentist and Dr. Rodney saw how kind he was, and how he considered dentistry a fulfilling career. So, he asked if he could work for free in his dental office, and within two weeks he had a job as an assistant and a passion for the profession.

"I saw how many lives he touched and how much he affected the community, and it grounded my decision to go into dental school," said Dr. Rodney. "My path in dentistry made me value the relationships you build and how much someone's life can be transformed through the power of a smile."

Dr. Rodney earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Fla. before pursuing a dental career at LECOM School of Dental Medicine in Bradenton, Fla. where he received his Doctorate in Dental Medicine. He provides patients with a wide range of services, including crowns and bridges, full and partial dentures, implant restorations, composite restorations, extractions, periodontal diagnosis, and Invisalign.

He is a member of the Member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Florida Dental Association, and the Virginia Dental Association. He is also fluent in Russian.

In his spare time, he and his wife Meghan, daughter Madeline, and dog Liana enjoy spending time hiking, kayaking, biking, exploring museums, relaxing at the beach and trying new foods.

SPODAK DENTAL GROUP Safely Reopens to Care for Community Members

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- It's been a trying time for everyone during the Coronavirus pandemic, but the Spodak Dental Group (SDG) team is reopening their doors to provide needed dental care to their community members. After following the Center for Disease Control (CDC), American Dental Association (ADA) and Gov. DeSantis' guidelines for flattening the Coronavirus curve for the past several weeks, the SDG team will begin seeing all current and future patients for emergency and routine dental procedures starting Monday, May 11.

"We've taken measures to ensure a very cautious reopening route with a goal to open sustainably, safely, and for the long term," said Dr. Craig Spodak, general dentist at Spodak Dental Group. "In fact, the safety measures we've put in place are above and beyond the recommended CDC and dental board guidelines, so we are confident we are doing all that we can to ensure the safety of our patients, team and community."

The SDG team has taken careful consideration to implement health-focused additions to the company's standard of care, with a goal to provide the highest level of care possible and ensure a safe environment for both patients and team members.

Rotating Teams

In an effort to offer continuous service to patients, the office will be open from Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and teams will treat patients in two shifts. One team will serve patients from Monday through Wednesday, and the second team will serve patients from Thursday through Saturday.

Safety Protocols

While safety has always been a top priority for the entire team, the SDG team has implemented new and additional protocols and personal protective equipment to elevate their safety standards to the next level. A thermal scanner will be used to register the body temperate of all patients and team members prior to anyone entering the building. Additionally, all patients will be asked COVID-related questions when making an appointment, confirming an appointment, and at the time of the appointment.

LEED Gold Certified Facility

Not only does the Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Facility have 66% more fresh air than than code requires, but 88% of the building is lit by sunlight, which research shows is germicidal and bactericidal. They've also installed UVC air filtration systems, which kills any germs or bacteria that can cause sickness, and perform nightly disinfecting protocols with high-grade cleaning products and a fogger that kills the COVID-19 virus.

Since 1976, the Spodak Dental Group, a 2017 Inc. 5000 honoree, has evolved to become South Florida's premier, comprehensive dental facility, and comprises a world-class association of dental professionals poised to provide full-service dental care second-to-none in both scope and skill.
