3D CONE BEAM TECHNOLOGY
Dr. Smith is one of a very small number of dentists in Fresno who has his own 3D scanner. This is excellent for diagnosing many dental problems like impacted teeth, abscesses and TMJ problems. Its main use, however, is to help in the precise and predictable placement of dental implants. With this technology, Dr. Smith is providing his patients with the highest level of safety that dental implants have to offer.
Dr. Smith uses the Dexis digital xray system. Dr. Smith looked at many different companies and while these are the one of the most expensive on the market, their image quality is the best. These xrays use about 25% of the radiation of a traditional xray and provide an image with amazing clarity and detail. The images can be enlarged on a computer screen and displayed in a way that most patients can understand.
COMPUTERS IN EVERY ROOM
Dr. Smith has computer monitors in every room so that the patients can see their xrays and understand their dental problems more clearly. Seeing the xrays on the screen helps Dr. Smith and the patient communicate better. It also allows Dr. Smith to show videos explaining the patient’s problems to them.
Dentrix is the industry leader in dental software. This is important to the patient because it is the best at figuring out what your insurance benefits will be. With Dentrix, we can get a very good estimate of what your insurance will cover and what they will not. We can also send xrays over email which helps make insurance processing go much faster.
