Dentistry is a technologically advanced profession; and it continues to evolve. In today’s increasingly digital age, it is important that team members are proficient and confident in using the technology utilized in dental practice environments. To this end, it is important for practice owners to ensure the right team members are hired and then, trained appropriately on hardware, software and other applications that are used to provide care for patients.

Age is less important than experience and attitude when determining whether a potential employee has the aptitude or ability to work with newer technologies.
