CARDP Roundtable – Digital Services in the Dental Practice
The advent of digital services continues to have a significant influence on workflows across the healthcare sector, and the dental office is no exception. From digital scanning and recordkeeping, to printing models and teleconference platforms, technology is changing the way dentists diagnose, treat and communicate with their patients.
Dr. Oliver Pin-Harry is a Prosthodontist from Burlington, Ontario who has been embracing technology in dentistry for 25 years, ever since he was introduced to the CEREC 2 while in dental school in France. Since 2008, he has been using fully digital workflows.
“Today digital technology is at a point where it can improve quality of care,” says Dr. Pin-Harry. “Certain aspects of reconstructive dentistry are not possible without the integration of technology.”
In this CARDP Roundtable discussion, Dr. Pin-Harry is joined by Dr. Shammick Kotecha, General Dentist from Toronto, Dr. Doug Hamilton, General Dentist from Montreal, and Dr. John O’Keefe, Director of Knowledge Networks CDA, to discuss the role of digital technology in dentistry today.
Dr. Pin-Harry outlines how technology has had an impact on his practice, and fields questions from the expert panel on the benefits and limitations of digital dentistry. He outlines the types of treatments that can be enhanced by technology, addresses the accuracy and trueness of digital scan systems, and offers advice on what to consider, if you’re thinking of going digital.
