Always the right time for DEXIS

Posted by Team DEXIS

Hygienist_wSensor_and_Patient_FBFor teens, it always seems too soon to ask for those driving lessons, and in retirement years, some may feel it is too late for those skydiving sessions. But, in a dental practice, it is never too early or too late to get a DEXIS™ digital imaging system.

Here are a few reasons to implement DEXIS imaging now!

For early birds: Starting a practice is never easy, but digital imaging can start a practice’s radiography options off on the right foot. With crisp, clear images captured with DEXIS Platinum sensors, clinicians can see X-rays in detail, enlarge images and focus in on areas of interest. Pairing those quality images with a large monitor can give the patients a greater opportunity to visualize your diagnosis and as a result, to be more compliant with the treatment plan. When they tell their friends about the new practice with the state-of-the-art technology, word-of-mouth referrals can start filling that appointment book!

For procrastinating practitioners: There are many reasons that practices have delayed going digital, but it is never too late to experience the benefits of a DEXIS system. Those who switch from a film-based X-ray are relieved to be rid of the darkroom, the processor and costly, hazardous chemicals. There’s no wait for images to be developed; digital X-rays appear on the screen immediately, and images are automatically saved, dated, tooth numbered, correctly oriented and mounted.

Whether you have a new or an already established practice, there’s no time to waste on a film-based system. New DEXIS owner, Largo, Florida-based Dr. Gregory Zollo described his switch from film to DEXIS. “I’ve been in practice for 37 years,” he said. “Film X-rays are more trouble, much more time consuming, and in the long run, more expensive than digital. I should have switched years ago.”
