I have never met a dental team member who wanted to go back to the paper book once she had mastered the electronic schedule. New technology leads naturally and inevitably to more new technology. It is a one way street.

This is related to one of my all time favorite Seth Godin observations. “A car is not merely a faster horse.” New technology does not just allow us to do something. We can do that something  faster and better but, even more importantly, we can do related things we never thought of before.
