With the onset of the pandemic, healthcare emerged as a silver lining and pivoted the business sector towards growth.

iSmyle Dental Center is the brainchild of Dr. Saif Sayed (Co-Admin) and Dr. Sanah Sayed (Co-Admin). In 2013, the duo forged the concept of leveraging the combination of their minds, thought processes, and qualifications. Dr. Saif Sayed is a general dental practitioner and has been practicing for the past 10 years. He focuses more on the functionality of a tooth. Dr. Sanah Sayed, on the other hand, has done specialization in cosmetic dentistry. She appreciates the ﬁner, aesthetic aspects of teeth.

Specialists at the Core

Built on the foundation of years of trust, the team of dental specialists has been providing consistent quality care to more than thousands of patients. Each member understands that no patient likes to sit consistently on a chair for prolonged hours, and hence they are offered quality and painless treatment in the least traumatic manner within the least possible amount of time.

Doctors at iSmyle Dental Center—cultivating patient-centric dental treatment—ensure that the patients receive dental treatments with minimal visits by leveraging advanced local anesthesia techniques to eradicate fear.

The clinic also organizes weekend workshops to propagate information on dental and oral healthcare.
The ‘8-Stage’ Safety Protocol
The COVID-19 pandemic instilled a reasonable fear amongst people. People were worried about cross-infection in dental clinics. Besides, the fear of going out of the house put them into practicing self-medication with the help of local search engines. As this was a dangerous and unhealthy practice, iSmyle considered it as its job to provide counseling sessions to the patients, educate them of the protocol followed at the clinic, and assure them that their teeth are in safe, experienced hands. As no other healthcare worker is in closer contact with human saliva than the dental healthcare professionals, doctors at the iSmyle Dental Center ensured the strict maintenance of hygiene protocols in the clinic premises.
The clinic introduced and followed a strict 8-stage protocol for all the patients, doctors, and staff. The protocol included Daily stringent temperature checks, oximeter readings, wearing of protective equipment, social distancing, high concentrated disinfection of the floor, and tables between every patient getting treated at the clinic. Although the practice of the protocol has led to prolonged periods of treatment and increased expenses, the clinic ensured that none of these factors affected the quality of health care provided to each and every patient. By practicing the 8 stage safety protocol, iSmyle Dental Center has gained the experience to handle medical crises in the future. It continues to strictly practice these protocols at the clinic to prevent contamination while using personal protective gears to ensure maximized safety and prevention.
Digitizing the Future
iSmyle Dental Center aims to go completely digital. The clinic is already leveraging various aspects of digitization such as digital smile designs, digitally-driven implant dentistry and digital simulation of a particular treatment. In the future, iSmyle aims at providing only digital treatment options to the patients, which would result in fewer chair timings with better and more predictable results while allowing no room for error.
