iPads and prosthodontics
When patients visit Dr. Jonathan Ferencz's NYC prosthodontics practice, they complete their admission forms on an iPad instead of paper. They use a stylus to sign forms, and staff emails the information into a database. The specialist also uses the iPad to share treatment options, including photos, with clients, and technicians review digital images on tablets to create dental prosthetics. Patients waiting for appointments can also use an office iPad to surf the Web.
Using tablets sends a message to patients, according to Dr. Ferencz. "It conveys a subliminal message that this office is up to date technologically," he pointed out, "so they know that we’re up to date in our dentistry as well."
