Where are you going with technology in your practice? I?m interested in the office investments you all are currently making and why. After attending the California Dental Association meeting in San Francisco last week I saw a lot of interest in digital panorex machines, and CAD/CAM and digital impression technology. Are you increasing your diagnostic and restorative skills/capabilities? What products are you looking to purchase and why, and what are your clients asking you to provide?
My thoughts are that now is the time to look at expanding the services you offer, but many practices are slower which means expenditures have to be carefully planned (probably the reason you refer to Dental Product Shopper). The good news in being slower is that many of you have the time to spend training and integrating the new technology. Perhaps increasing the efficiency of your practice through technology is another reason to invest.
