Our passion is your Practice Success

Published on : 4/11/2012

Let’s put our technology to work.

You may already know this but we’ll say it anyway in case you don’t know, our passion is your practice success.

I have recently spoken out about how technology can and does in most cases Increase efficiencies within the practice but it clearly delivers in many areas that are not expected by users and we see proof of this every day with new users but more often than not with existing users who are taking up new functionality such as sms or modules such as steri tracking. These like most others can and will make dramatic changes within the practices efficiencies.

It’s no secret that with the various existing and emerging infectious diseases our society now faces, Infection Control is one of the most topical and important subjects a dental practice must concern itself with these days. Thankfully we have very high standards in Autoclave systems and equally I believe in Practice Management systems. Although I am of course closely associated with Dental4Windows, neither I nor my company have any specific loyalties within the Autoclave world.

There are many different Autoclave systems available with most being of an excellent standard offering the necessary reporting required to track all sterilization taking place within the practice. With this in mind and the fact that with a Practice Management system such as Dental4Windows, a practice can accurately track all sterilization occurring within the practice, I am amazed to consistently speak with dentists and practice managers who are not using their Practice Management system to manage and track these processes.

Using the practice management system to track these processes will increase the practice efficiency and therefore the bottom line but also doctor accountability and equally importantly,the surgery’s overall confidence in its own standards and systems.

The contents of packs is tracked and can be changed at any time easily from a drop down list of instruments, cycles can be tracked or searched for, Pack history is also tracked and recorded and patient records also include the instrument packs used for specific consultations. Come on practice managers, doctors and practice owners, we have a duty of care to both our patients and also to ourselves to take advantage of this technology and put it to full use.
