Dental care has come a long way in the past few decades. There is a now a great deal of new technology that can help make the experience of going to the dentist faster, simpler and less painful. It's important for dental staff to be regularly trained to use this new equipment, so a practice can keep up with the times. Recently, the Chicago Tribune reported on how one dental office is working to make sure its staff stays up to date.
Webster Dental holds an annual staff education day to explain all of the new technology, polices and dental trends to the dental team.
"Some dentists don't update their technology for 20 years," office manager Laurie Knaple told the news source. "If I felt strongly about something that I think our patients would benefit from or something I think is worth the investment, it's so nice when you get a 'Yes.'"
According to Wired Magazine, there are many new dental technologies on the way that are sure to change the industry. The news source stated that lasers and drills will soon be a thing of the past as dentists continue to look for more innovative and pain-free ways to deal with dental issues.
