Reaching a Consensus on Dental Technology

Dental Products Report, Dental Products Report August 2022, Volume 56, Issue 8

The Dental Products Report® 2022 Tech Census got a good look at what dental professionals choose for the technology in their practice, and what they see for the future.

As technology advances in the dental field, understanding what works for a specific practice can help give clinicians an edge over the competition. Whether it’s an intraoral camera to better visualize treatment planning or an artificial intelligence (AI) platform to detect caries, technology can be a huge boon for dental practices regardless of size.

New technology not only makes clinical treatments more effective and efficient, but it can also be a great marketing tool for attracting patients. When a practice keeps ahead of the curve, it demonstrates a clear commitment to patient well-being and best practices.

To get a good idea of what dental professionals are considering for their practices, Dental Products Report® surveyed dental professionals all over the United States in the Dental Products Report® 2022 Tech Census. Their answers can offer vital insight on incorporation of new technologies into daily practice across the nation. Demographically, about 80% of respondents were practice owners with more than 20 years’ experience. Read on to see their insight and answers to get a robust idea of what technologies work best for dental professionals. Answers were rounded up or down to the nearest 1.
