Henry Schein Practice Solutions will introduce Guru™, a computer-based, interactive patient education program at the ADA meeting in San Francisco. Guru is a patient communication tool which enables the patient to effectively make a more informed decision about proposed treatment and oral health.
Patients who understand their diagnoses and treatment options are more likely to make sound decisions regarding their oral health. Guru is interactive, providing customized explanations, specific notations, and images unique to each patient, from X-rays to intraoral photos.
What I liked best about Guru is the interactive functions and the incorporation of actual patient images along with detailed animations. This is the first new patient education product I have seen which can compete with CAESY.
