Digital XRay and Software - Part 1: Quality

Many of you have read that software is the most important part of your digital xray system. We happen to believe this is true, but what does this have to do with X-Ray quality? Find out the truth about Digital X-Ray quality and software.

Infection Control and The Digital Office

With H1N1 recently front and centre in the news, dental offices and patients should ask themselves if they are doing their best to prevent its spread. What is the smartest option?

You have questions? We have answers!

Data Entry and Infection control

Infection control in the dental operatory is an important factory that deservedly gets a great deal of attention. However, how much thought have you given to how your keyboard and mouse may be contributing to the spread of infection? The answer is usually 'not enough'. Here are some simple new options that can help.

Why aren't you taking digital photos of your patients?

The value of taking digital photos is well documented and clear. Still, many dentists are still not taking digital photos of their patients.  Of the few that do take photos regularly, many are doing it themselves instead of delegating to their staff, which is very costly. Given the tools The Bridge Network provides, there is no excuse for not having your staff take great digital photos.

Evaluating Technology

With technology always moving forward, a lot of new products are starting to flood the dental market and many of these products are being ‘pushed’ by speakers, consultants and dental supply houses (that may or may not get some sort of endorsement). So, how do you find out about these products and evaluate them?

Why stop educating your patients once they leave your office?

You probably use, or have considered using a DVD in reception. You may also use Optio Dentistry (which is bundled with Tracker) at chair side or in a consultation room to help educate patients about treatment options. Using these tools will definitely contribute to the growth of your practice.

Making the Right Digital X-ray Decision

If you don’t do your research to find what’s best for your practice, you may end up with a digital x-ray system that will not only be frustrating to use and cost you time, it could also cause you to lose a few patients

Point & Shoot vs. SLR Cameras: The Digital Decision is Yours

Some ‘Point and Shoot’ cameras of today (not all) have greatly improved over their predecessors. Repositioned flash, large easy to view LCD monitors, multiple shooting modes such as ‘Super Macro’, and high mega pixel counts all make these low priced (about 15% of the price of a Digital SLR) cameras more than a suitable addition to your operatories.

Possibly the most inefficient tool in an operatory...

The Intraoral Camera.  With the recent advancements made to digital photography as well as imaging software (similar to that of The Bridge Network’s ChairSide Imaging), taking better quality intra oral images can be faster and easier by using a simple macro camera rather than an Intraoral Camera.
