Using computer technology well is an essential component of the successful dental practice in 2017.
Choosing and using technology is one of the three highest dollar decisions a dentist will make. (Along with staffing and office construction)
Dentists are faced with making essential technology decisions right now, today. Those decisions will be some of the most critical choices they make regarding the future of the practice. Those choices are not trivial, but involve many tens even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Do not make the mistake of planning and budgeting for a traditional office with chairs, hand pieces and a central vac then adding technology on over that in the future. Start with tech, hire for tech and then add the rest.
