Most dental practices have come to realize how quickly technology has become part of everyday life in the practice.
Dentistry has undergone a paradigm shift over the past 20 years where systems that were once analog (paper, film) and now being replaced by digital counterparts. Nowhere is this more evident than with practices that are trying to become completely paperless. While I don’t agree that any office can be truly paperless, eliminating the need for a physical paper chart is something that any office can achieve. This course will evaluate a 6-Step plan for becoming paperless and help offices avoid a $50,000 mistake.
- Learn how to use a six-point checklist to implement the paperless practice
- Evaluate third-party programs that can provide functionality where the practice management programs cannot.
- Understand Image management software and what works best with each dental software.
