3D dental conebeam is the fastest growing technology in the dental industry. It might not be for every dental office but it is an emerging dental technology that is transitioning dental surgical treatment planning from 2D radiographs to 3D graphic dental images that adds a new dimension to dentistry and patient education.

The Dentist Management Corporation (DMC) is a division of the ODS that specializes in practice management software, 2D digital x-ray and 3D conebeam planning, integrating and implementation. DMC’s focus is providing exceptional customer service and single point of contact strategy for 3D technical support, 3D preplanning and 3D implementation.

 

Here are DMC’s “7 Best Practices on how to Successfully implement 3D Conebeam Technology into your Dental Office.”

 

Best Practice #1
When investing in 3D conebeam technology you must create a business plan focusing on how you will incorporate the 3D conebeam into your dental office workflow.

  • Implants
  • Extractions
  • Root Canals
  • Ortho
  • TMJ
 

Best Practice #2
When you must determine which 3D conebeam FOV (field of view) is right for you based on the business plan, your budget and which dental cases that you are targeting for the 3D conebeam usage.

  • Small Field of View (5mm X 5mm) = $75,000 to $125,000
  • Medium Field of View (8mm X 8 mm) = $75,000 to $145,000
  • Large Field of View (17mm X 12mm) = $145,000 to $171,000
 

Best Practice #3
Negotiate your financing, the price of the 3D conebeam, training and warranties

  • TCO = Total Cost of Ownership (Price, Interest, Warranties)
  • Always negotiate 2 separate days of training at least 2-3 weeks apart
  • Finance rates for 3D conebeam are as low as 4.99% (ODS)

 

Best Practice #4
Plan on how you will integrate your existing dental practice management software, in-office computers, servers and data transfer lines with your 3D conebeam acquisition computer:

  • Daisy Software integrates with five 3D conebeams
  • Practice Works\Kodak Imaging integrates with one 3D conebeams
  • Dentrix, Eaglesoft and XLDent integrate with no 3D conebeams
  • Remote HIPPA compliant data transfer lines
  • Remote HIPPA compliant backup services
 

Best Practice #5
Design your 3D conebeam imaging room so that it will impress your patients:

  • Upgrade your Multi-Media for enhanced patient education
  • Scatter Radiation Study – ProPhysics design study
  • Electrical Requirements - Asian and US 3D CBCT manufacturers – 110 volt – 4 amp
  • Electrical Requirements - European 3D CBCT manufacturers – 220 Volt – 4 amp

 

Best Practice #6
Keys to having a successful installation and training

  • You need an point person to run the entire project (Single Source Contact)
  • Identify key team leaders in your office with advanced IT skills
  • Schedule two 3D training periods on separate days to avoid information overload
  • The first 30 to 60 days are when most IT problems occur, plan for these concerns
  • Schedule a remote training session after 90 days to answer all outstanding training concerns and questions

 

Best Practice #7
Contact your risk management insurance provider and ask them their best practices on incorporating 3D conebeam into your dental office.

  • Complete a ProPhysics scatter radiation report
  • ProPhysics report will be sent to the state regulatory agencies
  • Create a 3D conebeam Patient Consent Form
  • Your personal liability insurance does not cover you if become a 3D imaging center
  • Personal liability Policy vs. Imaging Center Policy
  • List your 3D conebeam with your insurance carrier

 

These best practices are a road map to incorporate on how to implement a 3D conebeam into your dental office, clinic or school. If you by pass any of these best practices the results of your 3D conebeam implementation will be extremely stressful to you, your staff and patients.

Failing to plan is planning to fail. An investment in 3D conebeam will be one of the largest investments in your career and dental practice and you need a team that you can trust. At the Dentist Management Corporation we provide all of our clients with a free in-office 3D conebeam review process that examine HIPPA regulations, existing computers, servers and new 3D conebeam workflow processes.

 

For a free in-office 3D conebeam review click here and let’s move into the new dimension of 3D dental conebeam together. 3D conebeam is a state of the art dental technology that will invigorate you, your staff and your patients. A new dimension has arrived in dental imaging and congratulations to those that have 3D conebeam and those dentists that are considering this incredible technology.
