1. It’s more personal Talking to someone when you can see his or her face is so much more personal than email or even a phone conversation.

1. It’s more personal

Talking to someone when you can see his or her face is so much more personal than email or even a phone conversation.

The other person can pick up non-verbal conversation cues that just aren’t an option through more traditional communication methods. 

2. It avoids tonal misunderstandings

Have you ever been completely misjudged (or misjudged someone else!) based on a faulty reading of an email or text? Talking with someone via video helps avoid those kind of tonal misreadings. 

3. It allows you to be visually on the same page

The dental tech world is a very visual one. Why not use video to make sure that you’re seeing everything your customer needs you to see? And you can show them your progress along the way, making sure you only have to do a difficult case once.

4. You can share your knowledge

Video technology can help you communicate with a broad viewership. You can record yourself handling a case or providing some instruction and easily share it with millions of people by uploading it to sites like YouTube. It’s a great way to make your knowledge a helpful tool for labs all over the country, and you might be surprised at the ways you can learn from other tech’s videos.

5. It’s easier than ever 

Google Hangouts, Skype and mobile device cameras make it easier than ever to communicate via video. Chances are, your computer, your phone and your tablet are all loaded (or ready to be loaded!) with ways to make your communication visual.
