WHY 3D IMAGING
Trying to grasp why you need 3D Cone Beam imaging, what's in it for you? Your practice? Lets start with with this video of Dr Koo (local dentist Wayland MA) from a point of view of what's most important, your patient!! When I watched this video the first time I was reminded about one of my favorite books, START WITH THE WHY, by Simon Sinek. WHY do we do what we do... when I ask my customers this I hear things like... I like to take care of people, I want to help them live a happier healthier life by saving their teeth, so they will feel confident with their smile and be able to eat with their own teeth for their entire life! Dr Koo invested in his practice to provide the highest level of care for his patients. If patients aren't accepting your proposed treatment they aren't being cared for at the highest level. Ask yourself as you watch this, what are your patients saying about you after their experience in your practice... is it similar?
This patient went 7 years, had been seen by several different doctor and it wasn't until she came to Dr Koo that she was able to identify her problem. He SHOWED her what was causing her to suffer. She states that within 1 hour she had ABSOLUTE CONFIDENCE in him, that he's the man! He has the technology, the knowledge and experience. Just walking into the office she felt confident in him. This goes to show the power of investing in your practice, everything a patient sees, hears, and feels effects their decision making. Seeing is believing! The more you show your patients whats wrong in a way they can understand, the more often they will say yes to treatment!
I like this one because it gives you a perspective of what patients are googling when they are trying to undertsand their options for treatment
what 3D cone beam unit is best for your practice?
There are a way to many options today with 3D Cone Beam systems, so I will keep this simple here. If you just watched the video, you'll realize that its all about the patient perspective. You'll be better equipped to diagnose and Tx Plan for your patient which will lead to higher case acceptance and higher production for the practice. Its a self funding technology just like Cerec, your payments will be more than covered by the dentistry that you find! I sell quite a few of the options that are available on the market, I dont recommend going with a direct company for obviuos reasons, I can't help guide you through the buying process and who knows what will happen after the sale when something goes wrong. Here is a sampling of the systems I sell, please start by reaching out to me, we'll figure out what you want to do with the technology and find the right solution that matches your needs.
