FREMONT, CA: Every year brings with it new digital dental trends comprising new technologies, enhanced business practices, and new ways to optimize the patient experience, and the current year is no different. Learn below about the latest dental practice equipment and business operations that dental practices are deploying to save time, streamline processes, and increase patient volume.

Hiring a specialist who can productively manage and handle the tools will remove this reliance and save businesses thousands of dollars long-term.

3D printing brings in same-day dentistry that will eventually enable organizations to earn more revenue by taking on new patients. The instance helps in increasing client retention with quicker appointments, and less time waiting for dental products to be crafted in-house.

2. Natural Dental Products

Going green is a modern trend across all the industries, particularly in the world of private and professional healthcare.

As customers increasingly choose for more natural products such as charcoal toothpaste and bamboo toothbrushes in their personal lives, the integration of natural oral hygiene items within the dental practice will be a requirement moving forward.

3. Digital Impressions

Digital impressions are removing challenges, like deteriorated or cracked casts, that has continuously frustrated patients and dentists over the last few decades.

While Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) and Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software are not new to the dental sector, the occurrence of these programs will persist in growing as more practitioners gain access to them. If one is still using clay casts and wax molds to take impressions of the patients’ teeth, it is time to upgrade the equipment.
