In today’s blog post, we give you some tips on how to approach and implement dental technology integration into your current practice. Making an organized strategy is the first step in improving your daily operations, enhancing patient experiences, and increasing your practice’s revenue.
1. Research Current and New Dental Technologies
Before you commit to any large purchases, do your due diligence–research new and mainstream dental technologies that you might be interested in. You may find that you do not need to get entirely new equipment. Instead, you may be able to modernize your practice with simple software updates rather than completely new gadgets or programs.
After you determine how much updating your practice needs, then it’s time to focus on your practice’s budget.
2. Determine Your Dental-technology Budget
Implementing dental technology into your practice may be expensive, but it does not need to become a financial nightmare. So, determine the amount of money you are willing to spend on new technology before you start shopping around.
Once you know how much you can realistically spend on dental technology integration, then you can begin comparing prices and weighing your options.
3. Beware of Micro-advancements
It is all too often that Silicon Valley releases a seemingly new, otherworldly gadget or computer program that over promises and under delivers. This is because many technological advancements are really just minor improvements upon previous iterations of past advancements.
Subsequently, you may be paying designer prices for simple updates, like software patches. So, beware of micro-advancements in technology, as you may be able to enhance your current system without completely replacing it.
4. Learn, Practice, Grow
Dental technology integration does not mean much if you and your team do not know how to use your new gadgets properly. So, once you research and buy new technology, commit to learning and practicing it. This will help you and your team get more comfortable transitioning to a new protocol or system without disrupting the flow of your daily operations.
5. Look for Help from an Expert
Even with concerted efforts to learn and implement new dental technology, it is still difficult to navigate modern software and equipment. This can take a toll on office productivity, efficiency, and morale.
Don’t give new dental technology integration the chance to disrupt your team’s flow. Contact a trusted team of experts (like the experienced team at Dental Practice Enhancement!) to help you implement modern advancements into your practice.
