Knowing how to connect with patients is an art; treating patients with the most up-to-date technology and clinical techniques is science. Art meets science with the new DEXIS™ DEXcam™ 4 HD intra-oral camera that brings high definition imaging and innovative acquisition software, DEXcapture, to the dental office.
Creating visual impact is part of the art of patient education. Most patients are visual learners, so DEXcam 4 HD’s highly detailed true-to-color photos are an asset to increasing patients’ understanding of clinical findings and supporting treatment recommendations. When patients need more than words to see “the big picture” of their dental health, clinicians can enlarge the images and still retain remarkable clarity and accurate representation. The camera’s precision 7-element glass optical lens produces exceptional image quality and helps prevent image distortion. Images can be printed or emailed to patients to keep treatment recommendations on their minds, as well as shared with partnering doctors for multifaceted treatment.
Discussing your treatment options while viewing the images with patients helps to create an atmosphere of co-diagnosis. Dr. Randy Shoup, noted, “No tool is more effective in creating the appropriate ownership attitude than an intraoral camera.”* DEXcam 4 HD images also help dentists create and keep a clear history of improvement or decline of the patient’s oral health over time, which illustrates the continuum of care and is also helpful in documenting clinical findings for treatments in pre-determination claims to insurance carriers.
Painting a clear picture of a patient’s dental issues through words and intra-oral photographs enhances doctor-patient interaction and allows dentists to better serve patients. With the click of DEXcam 4 HD’s capture button, art meets science, providing dentists with a clear focus on building practices through elevated patient care.
