Here’s a sneak peak ...

About 12 years ago, Dr. Parag Kachalia decided it was time to make a change in his practice. 

He wanted a more efficient practice workflow, and that meant it was time to trade in his traditional film radiographs for digital imaging.  He was ready to get rid of his dark room and all the wasted time that goes into film radiographs, and to offer his patients an imaging option that exposed them to less radiation.

That’s why, even though the images weren’t as crisp as traditional radiographs back then, Dr. Kachalia made the move to digital sensors. The time he saved and the peace of mind digital imaging gave his patients made the switch a no-brainer.

He no longer has to wait for images to develop, and if he needs to re-take an image for any reason, he doesn’t have to spend a lot of time doing it. The time saved with digital radiography makes it possible to see an extra hygiene patient during the day, or to go home a little earlier and enjoy life outside the office.  

And today, image quality isn’t a problem, making the move a simple decision for just about any practice.

Dr. Kachalia will discuss the evolution of digital imaging and the benefits it can bring to your practice in his free webinar, “The Digital Age-A New Era in Digital Radiography”.

This webinar will take you on a journey through the advances of digital imaging and provide foundational information so that both your patients and your practice can achieve long-term benefits.

The benefits of panoramic and 3D cone beam imaging

Digital imaging just keeps improving, and new panoramic systems as well as 3D cone beam imaging are other technologies Dr. Kachalia will discuss during the webinar, technologies that can help improve patient care at your practice-as well as your bottom line.

“We’re able to see information we never imagined. When I was in dental school the concept of seeing a tooth in 3D didn’t exist,” Dr. Kachalia said, noting that level of information can lead to improved treatment planning and enhanced patient care. “Today that’s possible.”

While this type of technology means a large initial investment, it’s an investment that will continue to grow with your practice, Dr. Kachalia said. The newest panoramic and 3D cone beam systems are upgradable, giving you the ability to let the technology grow with your practice. Today, each new generation of these technologies is an evolution rather than a revolution.

“There’s a lot of flexibility with these systems, from the size of the sensor to how much you want to grow imaging at your practice,” Dr. Kachalia said. “There’s always the fear that there will be something new tomorrow. While that’s true, there always will be something new, the systems in the market today will last a fair amount of time and you’ll see the ROI. We are at a quality today where I don’t think there will be any drastic change where we’ll need to buy something new tomorrow.”

Whether you’re ready to make the move to digital imaging or take it even a step further with panoramic and 3D cone beam imaging, now’s the time to make the move to a more digital practice.

You’ll save time and become more efficient. Your patients will notice and be impressed with your efforts, and more likely to accept treatment because the patient education you can provide is clearer.

You’ll see the ROI and you’ll see your practice grow.
