Discus Dental, Culver City, Calif, has launched TeethWhitening.com, a new Web site for patients. The site, maintained by a 10-member advisory board of dental professionals, offers patients information about whitening options, services, and product benefits and risks.

TeethWhitening.com features a library of resources for potential teeth whitening candidates, including product reviews, costs, possible side effects, and an "Ask a Pro" option where site visitors can post questions to advisory board members. Patients can also access a national directory to search for nearby certified dental professionals who perform teeth whitening services.

In addition, the site will offer advice about techniques and procedures, as well as industry information about new trends and services on the market.

Discus has made links and banners available on the Web site for orthodontists to post on their professional sites.
