Lisa Dennis

We are proud to announce the addition of Lisa Dennis, RDH, to our team at Nebraska Institute of Comprehensive Dentistry (NICD). 

“Lisa Dennis has worked in some of the best dental offices in the country, from Florida to California, gaining expertise through a relentless pursuit of continuing education. Her passion for her profession allows her patients to achieve excellent, life-enhancing oral health,” said Michael Sesemann, DDS, operating owner of NICD. 

Lisa’s continuing education endeavors include taking courses from some of the profession’s top educators and training at leading dental institutes. In addition to being an accomplished dental hygienist, she is skilled in the use of digital X-rays, intraoral photography, local anesthesia, implant maintenance, Invisalign, laser therapy and Botox and other therapeutic and cosmetic injectables.

“I knew at a young age my calling was to be in this profession. Not only is it an honor to be able to provide a valuable service but also to create long-term relationships that allow me to motivate, encourage and educate patients about excellence in dentistry. There is nothing more rewarding than being part of creating a healthy, beautiful smile that a patient can be proud of and that lasts a lifetime,” Lisa said. “I am excited about this next chapter of my career at NICD.” 

“When a business can add a person of Lisa’s character, energy and expertise, it helps elevate the entire team and contributes to our ability to provide world-class dental care for our patients. We are all very excited to work with Lisa in the coming years,” added Dr. Sesemann.

NICD Team Receives COVID-19 Vaccines

We are pleased to announce that your dental team at NICD received the first round of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine during the week of January 10, with the second inoculation planned within 21 days.

This adds an extra layer of safety to the measures that already have been implemented at the office, which include:

• Air purifiers with HEPA 13 filters and ionizing mechanisms

• Fogging of the office in between patients and at night with hypochlorous (200 PPM) mist, an environmentally and physiologically safe method of sanitization

• Pre-appointment rinsing with molecular iodine, established as the top anti-coronavirus oral rinse

• Increased personal protective equipment (PPE) with upgraded masks featuring N-95 and KN-95 protection

• High-volume evacuation utilized in any aerosol-producing procedure

• Social distancing in a low-traffic environment, where patients can easily be isolated from each other

• Temperatures and virus questionnaire administered before admittance

• Standard dental sterilization and sanitization procedures

“Dentistry has historically been at the forefront of disinfection and sterilization procedures and now, during the coronavirus outbreak, we’ve taken that to a new level,” said Dr. Sesemann. “I am very proud of my staff for embracing these challenges and implementing these new techniques for the safety of all of our patients and their families. We also are very thankful that our patients have been so conscientious about reporting any potential COVID-19 contacts, and not taking any chances by coming into the office if they have the slightest health concerns.”
