It is not too late to make a new dental instruments resolution - or you have broken your new resolution and need to start over. Let it be your resolution to apply Lean Business Principles to your dental practice. Here's how you apply these lean business principles to embrace new digital imaging.
Willing to change
Many offices continue to use inefficient methods because they are accustomed to daily rituals and habits, and even bad methods are difficult to break. The Leaner office is good at reducing unnecessary steps and costs. The implementation of digital X-rays will allow dental clinics to eliminate the need for darkrooms, cleaning and processing chemicals, mounts, movies and plenty of time.
2. Use employees' time more effectively
Let your staff leave the darkroom, wait for the movie to develop or clean up the processor again. You can save at least 20 minutes shooting digital images.
3. Effective communication
Have the latest dental equipment technology to explain your patient's "quality". Word bypasses the community and this technology makes dental experience faster, more comfortable, and easier to understand. Digital X-rays allow you to educate patients by easily magnifying and enhancing images.
Continuous improvement and lean office can help you to get more benefits from less money, reduce fat from the budget, and focus on the most important aspect of practice - providing patients with high quality care.
