Our practice has technologically advanced considerably. We have integrated clinical computers in each operatory. Having these computers aids us in treating patients because the records are now digitally recorded. Medical history, previous dental restorations, treatment plans, treatment notes, x-rays, intra-oral pictures, and insurance information can be easily accessed at any of our computers in a few key strokes. Having clinical computers allows us to take digital X-Rays which are automatically uploaded and stored in the patient’s chart. The patient’s X-Rays can be viewed on the computer screen in the operatory during a consultation. By being able to view an X-Ray on an 18” screen as opposed to a 1” film, we, as well as the patient, are better able to view any dental abnormalities or decay.
