FILM-BASED DENTAL PRACTICE

Diagnostic Evaluation

Even with a lightbox, film's small format can make it challenging for you to diagnose questionable areas, much less help a patient clearly see and understand an image. With film, what you see is all you get.

FILM-BASED DENTAL PRACTICE

Patient Experience

These days patients are anything but, well — patient. So when you leave a person alone in a chair while you step out to process film, you can also leave the unfavorable impression that you don't value their time.

FILM-BASED DENTAL PRACTICE

Practice Lifestyle

Every minute staff spends prepping chemicals, mounting images and maintaining your film processor is a minute lost for delivering more productive and personal patient care.

FILM-BASED DENTAL PRACTICE

Image Archive & Retrieval

Record rooms can take up significant office space that could be put to more productive use. Valuable time is often wasted searching for misplaced patient charts or waiting for films to reach specialists or insurance companies.

Service & Support

Few things can bring timely patient care and productivity to a halt quite like a malfunctioning or broken down film developer.

Image Quality — Film's lower resolution and susceptibility to scratches and poor processing can make viewing and diagnosing x-rays a more difficult task.

Scalability — Film limits image details to a small format that cannot be expanded or improved.

Patient Experience — Conventional film x-rays can cause discomfort, not to mention inconvenience for patients who are left alone in the operatory chair during film development.
