Imagine trying to read this page if it was shrunk to the size of a postage stamp.
Have you ever gone to a website using your smartphone only to find it is impossible to read or navigate because the phone attempts to fit the standard webpage into the tiny phone screen? After several frustrating minutes of resizing, waiting for the site to load, scrolling and looking for navigation buttons you give up…
Using responsive web design, a website detects the device on which it is being viewed and reformats itself to fit the screen. You do not want to create a different web page for different device screens. One website with the same content for all devices makes it easier for search engines to index a website, improving SEO. Responsive design uses a single website that is formatted for different devices.
At this time we are using three distinct screen sizes, traditional desktop monitors, tiny smart phones, and in the middle tablets such as the iPad.

Digital Radiography is one of the most exciting and fastest growing technologies in dentistry. It is also the area with the most misinformation. I constantly talk with dentists who either do buy digital for the wrong reasons or don’t buy for the wrong reasons.
My comprehensive technology guide, “Digital Radiography” exposes nine myths about digital radiography and it will answer the basic question…Why bother? It then provides step by step help choosing and then setting up digital x-rays.
You will learn about; the five part imaging chain, the sensor wars, image enhancement and much more. And what will come as a complete shock to most dentists… there is even a budget and financial analysis that shows how digital radiography is actually cheaper than film.
“Digital Radiography” will answer all your questions, provide a plan and show you how to save money… all delivered in a fun and easy to understand style.
“Dentalphone” Is this art? It may not be art but it is interesting. I love the little coronoid process on the case.
