I used four monitors in my office and it was great. You can click and drag anything from one monitor to the next, you can even stretch a window out to cover more than one monitor.

Some times I would bring up a perio chart or the Internet…come to think of it six would have been even better 🙂
We have used two in the treatment rooms since 1998. One for the patient and another for the practice. Two at the front desk, one for the schedule an the other for the patient chart or the Internet.
