But a chipped tooth took me to Dr. John Bindeman. The person who recommended him said he was “gentle” – an ultimate compliment in that profession. As I found out he is also very punctual – quite a contrast to a recent doctor visit where we had to wait 2 hours and then be rushed through the review of lab results. Most of all he patiently explained much of the technology he was using.
To start with he used the Schick CDR Elite (photo on left) with sensors in the mouthpiece to take a digital x-ray which he and the patient can instantaneously see together on the screen. The Dentrix software allows the patient to see othercharts, treatment plans and more and the doctor to look at schedules and other practice management areas.
Done is less than an hour. Need lots more work, but not in any hurry to get back:) But when I do, it will be for the opportunity to learn more of his technology!
Update: The Doctor provides some more info in his comment below.
