Why Dentists Lacking New Dental Technology Are Being Left Behind in 2021
We can all agree that technology has changed immensely over the last few years. These changes are constant and rapid, but that doesn’t mean everyone is adapting them. In the dental industry, dental practice owners have to be innovative if they want to stay relevant. In this article, we discuss why dentists lacking new dental technology are being left behind in 2021.
Communicate Effectively With Your Patients
One very good way to effectively communicate with your customers is through intraoral cameras. Digital Doc’s intraoral cameras provide excellent imagery. Through these crystal clear images, patients can get a better understanding of their oral health. Thus it is as beneficial for the dentist as it is for the patient. The latest technology in intraoral cameras is the IRIS X80 Liquid Lens Auto-Focus by Digital Doc. This camera provides the highest quality available in the market. The main advantage of using the IRIS X80 is that it is plug and play ready, has liquid lens autofocus, and an extremely sturdy frame. Today, customers appreciate photography more than ever before. Using Digital Doc’s intraoral cameras allows you to show patients what’s going on with their mouths clearly. Upgrading your dental technology is certainly worth the return.
Other Ways You Can Communicate With Your Patients
How you can effectively communicate with patients:
- Explain the advanced dental technology: Not every patient will be receptive to the use of new technology. So it is better to explain detail how technology can improve their treatment and describe step by step how it works.
- Partner in decision making: Instead of telling your patient what needs to be done, try to get them to participate in decision making. You can explain the pros and cons of treatment options. Patients will appreciate being involved, and it also gives them a sense of control.
- Social media: Social media is a perfect platform to educate your patients. Social platforms give you the freedom to display what you have to say in great detail through pictures and videos. Also, you can reach a bigger audience on social media.
Why You Should Upgrade Your Dental Technology
It can be hard to keep up with all the latest technology. A good amount of dentistry’s older generation is missing out on amazing opportunities to grow their dental practice and patient base. Simple dental technology updates like switching to the IRIS X80 intraoral camera can drastically change the efficiency of running your practice. Intraoral cameras allow you to SEE MORE and DO MORE! Today, the majority of patients will choose a more modern dental office over a traditional dental office. Don’t worry, it’s not too late to upgrade your dental equipment.
