DSD & Aligners
Is your business future-ready? Is your practice DSD ready? The future starts now. The dental industry is changing like never before: corporate entities are making it harder for small practices to compete. Technology is leading to drastic changes in the industry and in the way dental practices operate. With the shifting landscape of dentistry, it can be overwhelming for a single practitioner – a doctor – to keep up.
All of this may seem daunting, but you can’t just stick your head in the sand: you need to change the way your practice operates in order to survive and grow. Those who do not will lose their entrepreneurial freedom and may soon be working for corporations. That may be OK for some, but for those who want to keep their independence and have a thriving private practice with all the business benefits and resources a corporate technology system can offer, DSD is for you.
“It is not easy for a single practitioner to implement all of these new strategies on digital workflow, clinical skills, marketing and management, so it is a big challenge and that is why this partnership (You & DSD) is so powerful,” Dr. Coachman
“Even though I’m not an orthodontist, improving the digital smile design process made me a huge fan of this amazing specialty and understand better the importance of integrating it into our interdisciplinary cases. Improving facial analysis and facially driven smile design projects, increases the awareness of how we can benefit from tooth movement, creating more conservative, functional and esthetic outcomes.
As a Smile Designer/Technician, I had 3 issues related to orthodontic treatments: first, understand which cases could benefit from tooth movement and how they would benefit; second, convince the restorative dentist about this benefit; third, help the dentist educate and motivate the patient about this beautiful option. DSD helps in all 3 matters, creating a visual understanding about the interdisciplinary relationship, improving team communication and developing an emotional link between the patient and the comprehensive solution.
You don’t need to be a biomechanics expert to understand that aligners are the future when it comes to moving teeth. The main reasons why I believe in that is because the future of predictable and high quality treatments will also bring digital planning and virtual treatment simulations to the table. Testing virtually the options before touching the patients mouth. When approving a virtual treatment, the only way we can translate the ortho part of it into reality in a consistent way is through aligners. Thats the main reason why I love to see how professionals from all over the world are embracing aligner technology and creating solutions for all different types of situations.”
