The DrQuickLook dental viewer increases case acceptance without the need for computers or software.

The DrQuickLook “dental viewer” is an effective alternative to complex intraoral cameras, increasing case acceptance without the need for computers, software, or extensive staff training. Instead of storing, printing, or transfering images, DrQuickLook is designed as a handheld viewer for optimal clinician-patient communication.

In response to the product evaluation, DrQuickLook made major improvements to the image quality by updating firmware, modifying the image sensor, and making brightness adjustments to the LEDs. Today, the DrQuickLook Dental Viewer is better than ever and thousands of dental offices rely on it for patient education and to increase case acceptance.

The easy-to-use system works right out of the box by simply plugging the charger dock into any standard power outlet. A single charge lasts all day because of the built-in rechargeable batteries, and the portable device can easily be taken from room to room.

The entire DrQuickLook package includes the viewer and wand, a convenient countertop charging station, AC adapter, 200 sheaths, as well as optional wall-mount hardware.

Eight evaluators, 6 of whom do not currently use intraoral cameras in their practices, reviewed DrQuickLook and rated features such as ease of use, image quality, and usefulness for patient education.

Ease of Use

DrQuickLook is described by the manufacturer as the simplest dental viewer. With only 2 buttons used to operate the unit, dentists, hygienists, and assistants can learn to use it in minutes.

Ease of use was rated as excellent by 3 evaluators, as very good by 3, and as good by 2. When asked about the learning curve, 4 evaluators rated it as excellent, 2 rated it as very good, and 2 rated it as good.

One evaluator called the controls “a little awkward to use” and another, who called the system “quick and inexpensive,” said there was “something about the shape of the head or the maneuverability. I had to fiddle with it a bit before centering the image.”

One dentist, who said he would definitely purchase and recommend it, noted that the “all-in-one unit makes it easy,” 2 other evaluators called it “very easy to use,” and 2 more commented on the unit’s portability/compact size.

Patient Education: Case Acceptance and Communication

The DrQuickLook 14-oz viewer is held by the patient, who sees what the clinician sees in seconds, including calculus deposits, caries, fractures, and fillings. Patients are encouraged to take ownership of their dental issues while gaining confidence in the services being offered.

Usefulness for case acceptance and patient education were both rated as excellent by 3 evaluators, as very good by 3, and as good by 2. When asked if DrQuickLook facilitates dentist-patient communication, 2 evaluators rated it as excellent, 5 rated it as very good, and 1 called it good.

One evaluator cited “portability and being able to bring the image right up to the patient and point out issues up close” as a favorite feature and another noted that “since patients hold the viewer, they’re looking directly at the image.”

A dentist who gave the DrQuick- Look Dental Viewer an overall rating of good said, “Patients appreciated the views,” and another evaluator mentioned that they “liked it as a teaching tool.”

Image Quality

DrQuickLook features a 1.3 megapixel image, CMOS image sensor, and 6 LED lights for crisp, high-quality images viewed on a 3.5-in, high-resolution LCD display screen. Clinicians can easily freeze 1 image at a time, and the auto-focus function enables focus on images as small as 3 mm across.

Image quality was rated as very good by 3 evaluators and as good to fair by 5. When asked about possible improvements, suggestions included a larger display, the ability to print, and the option to save images.

One evaluator said the device “needs much higher resolution,” another said “image clarity on zoom could be better,” and a third noted that “the picture needs to be fine tuned.” A Virginia dentist who called it “a good, easy-to-use alternative to more complex intraoral systems” also said, “The question is whether a camera that doesn’t save images is worth it when any ‘smart phone’ functions similarly and allows for sharing online,” adding, “It’s convenient to have a screen right there, and to save money.”

Another evaluator said it “would be good for a health fair with no access to computers and to be able to do intraoral screenings outside the office.”

In response to the product evaluation, DrQuickLook made major improvements to the image quality by updating firmware, modifying the image sensor, and making brightness adjustments to the LEDs. Today, the DrQuickLook Dental Viewer is better than ever and thousands of dental offices rely on it for patient education and to increase case acceptance.
