Digital Dental Radiographs, you know..."X-Rays"

I'm happy to announce we have completed a couple major technological upgrades in our office.  Our computer infrastructure has been completely  updated ( including new computers) as well as our electronic dental claims system, to make information processing faster and more reliable. digital x-rays

But the biggest news is that we have purchase and installed a digital x-ray system and it's up and running! This allows many  benefits for the patient, the environment and information security.  With the upgrade we are now able to lower the already low dose of x-ray exposure even further while the images I use for diagnosis are better, clearer and more diagnostic than ever.  You the patient will not really notice any difference in the way the images are taken, but they are ready much faster. The environment benefits greatly too.  Old style film needs chemical processing.  There is also lead in each old film packet and that lead as well as the chemicals used in developing the x-ray films need to be disposed of. Well not any more!  Now all x-rays go directly into the patients computer file and we have back-ups of all the radiographic images so we can't lose or misplace them.  Have you ever noticed me looking through the chart, trying to find the lastest film X-Ray?  The computer backups of all computerized dental information, including the X-Rays and digital photographs that I take of my patients are encrypted before they leave the office for privacy and security.  ( bacups need to be taken out of the office as a safety measure). And, incase you are wondering, when I send dental information via email to specialist ( say they need a report or x-ray) I send encrypted files.  So my patient's information is secure.
