Incorporating New Technology In Your Dental Office

Adding new dental technologyIf you look back at the way dental practices were run 15-20 years ago, you’ll see how quickly technology has progressed and changed. While some of the technological advances were introduced and then quickly became obsolete, many more worked so well that they are now important staples in the way dental offices are now run.


The speed with which dental technology has improved has caused many dentists to be hesitant to invest in new technology. This hesitancy comes from a fear that the technology will be too expensive or difficult to learn. While there are definitely good and bad things about new technology, the pros tend to outweigh the cons. It’s important to do research and learn as much as you can about new dental technology. This is the best way to ensure an informed decision.

Adding computers and management software to your dental office can help make everyone’s job easier and allow for a more smoothly run operation. For example, more recent computer technology can allow you to more easily make the appointment schedule and deal with insurance companies. Claims can be submitted in one day and claims checks can even be deposited directly into your bank account, saving you time and a trip to the bank.

If you’re hesitant to incorporate new technology, you may be tempted to ease yourself and your office into the transition. However, there is really no such thing as a gradual transition when it comes to updated technology. The best way to approach new technology is to dive right in. It’s been found that many offices can make a successful transition in as little as 3-4 business days.
