The demand and availability for goods and services in non-traditional settings is growing. Orthodontic care is no exception. As orthodontists, we focus on successful results and the tolerability of our processes. While many of us have imagined an orthodontic practice where we do not actually have to see the patient, we are stymied on how to evaluate our patients’ progress.

Now, you can triumph over your obstacles. The answer is not in the future, but is here now. Dental Monitoring can eliminate the barriers we fear. Just by having your patient scan their teeth and by using Dental Monitoring’s Artificial Intelligence, you can assess your patient’s orthodontic care.

In fact, you will be able to access your patient more frequently and more thoroughly than you can in a conventional orthodontic setting. Dental Monitoring will also reduce stress, scheduling conflicts and practice inefficiency.

All things that can silently reduce your profits. And, that is power. So, why not treat yourself? You deserve it.
