Monitors in the Celing

Getting computers in the treatment area is a great first step. However if they are not placed in a way that makes them easy to use they don’t get used and the time and investment is wasted.

I am not a fan of monitors or TVs in the ceiling. They are very hard to upgrade, are by definition fixed in one spot and can only be used by patients lying flat on their back. The dentist cannot easily see it to show stuff to a patient. Patient monitors should be much much more than entertainment and when they are stuck in the ceiling they lose all the other options. Including as an x-ray view box for the treating dentist.

A much better option is a monitor on a ceiling mounted arm that can be moved to accommodate the dentist viewing a radiograph and a patient watching a movie.
