Are you a tech-whiz, and have been filling your practice with the latest technologies? Maybe you are behind the times. Either way, investing in the latest technologies might heighten your dental practice more than you think.
Do you have an iPad in your waiting room?
If you take a look at this Dental Heroes article, Dr. Edward Logan demonstrates the value of having an iPad in your dental office. According to him, having an iPad is great for:
- Patient education tools – Patients can view your smile galley in a finger swipe. Yes, they can easily access your portfolio on a laptop, but holding an iPad provides a different feeling with its intricate settings and high-tech features.
- Useful dental apps – Every Apple product has nifty apps to assist you for your business. There are even apps for dental practice management and patient education.
- Charting tools – There’s been a boom in iPad usage for dental practices since 2010. Why? Dentists can now chart and check patient history at the touch of their fingertips with apps such as edgeDMS.
What more can you do with an iPad?
The iPad can do a lot to benefit your dental practice. If you have been converting your practice to green dentistry, the iPad is definitely a great promoter. Your patients can fill out forms on the iPad, allowing you to convert into a paperless office.
If you are a family dentist, you can purchase game apps to keep the kiddos entertained for hours on end (maybe they’ll sit still in the dental chair).
As your dental coach, I fully understand that integrating the latest technology into your dental practice can up your “cool” status as a successful practice staying in sync with the latest updates. Stop living in the caveman era. Start converting today, and give your patients a positive experience.
