My business manager recently purchased an iPad for her family’s use to replace a laptop and provide a communication device for her son who has a communication disorder.  It has been fascinating to see the role that this iPad technology is playing in the lives of people with Autism Spectrum Disorders and communication disorders.  Her enthusiasm over its usefulness has led her to look into the uses of an iPad within a dental office.

Steve Jobs: How to live before you die

Drawing from some of the most pivotal points in his life, Steve Jobs, chief executive officer and co-founder of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, urged graduates to pursue their dreams and see the opportunities in life’s setbacks — including death itself — at the university’s 114th Commencement on June 12, 2005.

Improving Dentist-Technician Communication











With the intention of optimizing dentist-technician relationship, Dental Rx was created. Dental Rx is a new dental app for dentists  that allows him or her to take pictures of his or her patient with their iPad2, iPhone and iPod Touch and fill out a digital prescription in only one simple step.

The lab then receives the pictures along with the prescription by email. This app encourages the dentist to take pictures of the patient, without having to do the extra steps involved such as, transfer the pictures in the computer and then send them by email to the lab. The app also serves as a reminder for the dentist, with its step-by-step approach, to ensure no important information has been omitted.

Lab owners could gift this app to their dentists, thus giving them a new technological and practical tool to better communicate with their lab. (It is available worldwide on the iTunes App Store). This app may be used to discuss a case while the patient is still sitting on the dentist’s chair, or when the patient cannot come to the lab for a custom shade appointment. It could also be used to take pictures of preoperative models for a quick estimate. Dental Rx is the first app of its kind, and it is very likely that dentists and labs will shift to these kind of apps in a quest for better communication.

There are many ways to improve communication and thus improve collaboration between the lab and the dentist.  Awareness, the correct use of modern communication medium, and use of latest mobile technology will benefit all parties. In the long run, communication and collaboration remain the keys to success.
