This year’s Patterson Ultimate Education Experience event at Dentsply Sirona World will provide a unique virtual experience and the opportunity to learn about the latest innovations offered by Dentsply Sirona.
If you clearly define your practice vision and goals, and then choose the appropriate technology to help you reach them, you can confidently take the steps needed to move your practice forward. Here are a few ideas to keep in mind when investing in dental technology.
When dental offices reopened amid the COVID-19 pandemic, some practice owners saw an increase in costs associated with PPE, coupled with a loss in revenue from scheduling fewer patients. Learn how Mark Ligocki, DDS, surpassed pre-COVID production and collections by performing new procedures and doing more same-day dentistry with the Solea all-tissue laser.
It is essential to keep patient comfort and safety at the forefront while maximizing appointment efficiencies. The Solea laser is one way your practice can introduce an anesthesia-free appointment that reduces aerosols and allows you to get more work done with each appointment.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, many dentists have turned to teledentistry to stay connected with patients while practicing social distancing; providing consultation, evaluation and next step actions. But as with any new technology, teledentistry brings about new questions. Healthcare risk management and compliance expert, Linda Harvey, RDH, shares her expertise in assuring the teledentistry technology you choose for your practice is compliant with HIPAA rules and keeps the privacy and security of your patients intact.
With most dental practices in the U.S. open for emergency care only, it can be easy to stress about the future of your practice. Amid the uncertainty, it’s important to remain optimistic and think of ways to turn the negatives into a positive. Imtiaz Manji, the co-founder and chairman of Spear Education, recently shared his ideas on how to navigate the coronavirus crisis and how dental practices can use this tough situation to improve their business and come back stronger.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has thrust teledentistry into the spotlight as the “must have” technology to care for dental patients while maintaining social distancing. Bryan Laskin, DDS, explains how teledentistry is a great way to increase efficiency, wow patients, and bring in revenue.
CAD/CAM technology has been around for years, and more recently, the digital imaging component has become even more popular. Dr. Sameer Puri, director of CAD/CAM at Spear Education Center, explains the value of adding a CEREC system to your office.
Evaluating new dental office phone systems can be daunting, thanks to advancements in technology. Here are some terms and features to look for when your practice is in the market for a new phone.
As dentistry moves towards the medical model of care, statistics and metrics from the practice management software are going to become more important (more on that at another time). Many practices feel that their case acceptance is around 85 – 90% but when the truth from the software is told, it can be 60% or less. Why? There could be many reasons for this, but often the patient is receiving mixed messages from the team.
Let’s face it: Choosing practice management software is a daunting task. There are many options and at the end of the process, you’re greeted by a software installation with plenty of question marks. By closely considering these five things, you can find answers to your questions and get excited about your new practice management software.
