There are so many reasons why incorporating technology into dentistry can be beneficial. Most importantly, it improves the patient experience. Digital imaging can translate into lower levels of radiation for the patient and staff members alike than the older film-based x-ray systems. Intra-oral cameras can give patients a real-time view into their mouths that can better enable them to appreciate their treatment choices and thereby make more informed decisions about their oral health. Invisalign or “wireless braces” brilliantly utilize 3-D computer imaging technology to depict a complete orthodontic treatment plan from start to finish.
From an administrative standpoint, many of our patients love the convenience of receiving appointment reminders by email and text message. Electronic claims transmissions mean patients see their insurance refunds faster. We welcome the challenge to keep up with the pace of technology at our Brantford dental office to remain productive, efficient and cutting-edge.
