"The images and data that were made available by the intraoral scanner really helped the patient understand each decision and step of my proposed treatment. It became a teaching aid. Patients begin to understand why they really need a treatment."
Now is the time to go digital
If you are a dentist considering going digital, I would say that now is the time. The benefits to your dentistry are well documented and supported by numerous studies. But the impact to your business and career are immeasurable.
Your patients will be more engaged and willing to accept your treatment proposals. When you share your digital technology with them, they self-diagnose and convince themselves. They will also spread the word about your technology and share it with their friends and family.
