Driving Better Patient Care Through Technology

Why are we still utilizing technology that is decades old, but we can’t live without the latest iPhone? The practice of tomorrow has to be a patient centric practice and patients are craving technology. 3D Imaging, guided surgery, CAD/CAM technology, 3D printing are all becoming mainstream in todays dental office. If you aren’t investing in your practices you are being left behind by the dentists of tomorrow. Learn how Dr. Sully’s office doubled in just two years after introducing more these core pieces of technology into his practice. That the key to success in growing your practice and surviving in an insurance driven world is not more patients; it’s doing procedures.

A Practical Workflow to Treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Treating obstructive sleep apnea in the dental office is something many dentists are beginning to get into. However, implementing the procedure and workflow can be challenging. We will discuss how to identify patients that could be at risk for OSA, how to get them diagnosed, and what appliances are there. In addition, the intricacies of utilizing medical billing and financial discussions will be covered. At the end of the day, these patients are sitting in your practice and aren’t being treated. We have a unique opportunity as one of their healthcare providers to create awareness for our patients and potentially give them a solution for treatment.
