The following excerpt from DPR via dental blogs demonstrates the power of group think. “49% say sensors are uncomfortable.” Just because some other dentist heard this at a study club from some other dentist who has never used a sensor does not make it true.

Radiography – Digital versus film
Dental Products Report polled GP’s in 2005 on radiography preferences. Eighty per cent are using film based systems. Four per cent plan on buying a film based system versus 18 per cent that are planning on buying a digital system. 49 per cent say sensors are uncomfortable.
