Straine-On-Success — iPads In The Dental Office

Published on December 18, 2014

Dental iPadTablets PCs like the iPad are ideal tools for the dental office. In addition to the “wow” factor they generate (not insignificant given the positioning power of hi-tech), there are quite a few practical applications as well. Use one at the front desk to collect patient data electronically at check-in, improving accuracy and eliminating time spent on manual entry. If the office is running a few minutes behind, you can hand it over to entertain and distract patients during an unexpected wait. Share one between operatories to educate patients on procedures, review clinical images, and improve case acceptance. Use it to review office reports during your team’s daily huddle. The possibilities are endless! With Dentrix working on new features for their mobile software version and new dental apps arriving every day – make sure the iPad in your office is being used for more than just another game of Angry Birds!
