Dental Advisor 2020 Top Award Winner
About Dental Advisor 2020 Top Award Winner
The 2020 Dental Advisor awards are out, and once again, the IRIS Intraoral Camera made by Digital Doc has emerged as a Top Award Winner. Technology is always ever-evolving. The IRIS Intraoral Camera has been a Top Award Winner for eight years in a row, making it a testament to the cutting-edge technology and commitment to continuous improvement here at Digital Doc. Our team is dedicated to providing the best intraoral cameras on the market. Read on and discover what the consultants who evaluated the camera over a four-month period have to say.
The Consultants’ Comments
An intraoral camera is designed to be a diagnostic tool used by dentists. One of the comments that featured strongly among the consultants was the bright light that the IRIS Intraoral Camera has. These bright lights don’t wash out the colors inherent in the images captured.
The consultants also observed that the barrier sheath fits well over the dental camera. This sheath has no effect on the quality of images captured. Image quality is important to us at Digital Doc, so we put great care into the design of the sheath so that dentists use the protective component while taking intraoral images. Infection control is ensured if the barrier sheath is used consistently.
It was also observed that the intraoral camera is easy to operate. Coming from a team of consultants, this is high praise as they used the devices for four whole months.
The image quality also got wonderful feedback. The consultants say the images are great, and the photos capture the details of all extra-oral and intra-oral structures. All this high-quality comes from a camera that is “lightweight with a slim head,” as the consultants describe the IRIS Intraoral Camera.
Clinical Tips When Using the IRIS Intraoral Camera
To get the best from the IRIS Intraoral Camera, the consultants who reviewed the device came up with some tips. They first advised that dentists and hygienists, as well as other dental care professionals, should dry a patient’s teeth before capturing images.
You are also advised to install a cable kit in each of your operatories. This is so it is easy to move the intraoral camera from one operatory to another by the use of a mini-USB connection.
IRIS Intraoral Camera Features
IRIS, the best dental camera, has a sleek, stainless steel wand whose tip is narrow. This is designed like that so it can easily access all the parts of a patient’s mouth. The camera comes with a 15-foot cable, and this is more than adequate for work within an operatory. The capture buttons are strategically positioned on the sides of the camera wand. This allows users to use whichever hand they want, regardless if they are left-handed or right-handed.
The consultants report that it was seamless to integrate the camera with different dental practice management software, especially when the IRIS Intraoral Camera remained in the same operatory. The focus wheel has five positions for the user to choose to take a full-face image, one-surface image, two-surface image, a smile, or a macro image. Images exhibit trueness of color due to the LED lights which fully illuminate the field. However, the LED lights can be turned off if the intraoral camera user wants to capture an image of a dental x-ray, which has been backlit.
However, some technical issues can develop if you keep moving the IRIS Intraoral Camera from one operatory to another. 89% of the consultants who evaluated this dental camera found it to be better than ones on the market. They then concluded that they would switch to the IRIS dental camera. Only 11% said that the IRIS intraoral camera was no different from the existing ones on the market. All the consultants were in agreement that they would recommend the IRIS Intraoral Camera. This is based on their overall experience using this device during the lengthy evaluation period.
