Dental informatics: Time to join the revolution?

Dental informatics: Time to join the revolution?

Ratings: (0)|Views: 45 |Likes:
Published by Titus Schleyer
The “digitization” of dental practice is rapidly progressing, but there is a large gap between the clinical and administrative use of computers. Almost all dental practices have a computer, but only a minute fraction of general dentists (1.8%) use it in the operatory. This presentation discusses how dental informatics can help improve oral health by using electronic patient data for quality assurance, documenting patient care using natural language and delivering evidence-based decision aids with computers. Time for a revolution!
