Making Your Digital Dentistry Shine

By: David Broom | Henry Schein TechCentral

Digital dentistry has unique needs. Since a local IT company, or your computer-savvy nephew, probably won’t understand those needs, it could take years to train them to effectively support your practice, resulting in frustration and reduced productivity. It is important that your digital practice has that strong “setting” from an experienced IT company, like Henry Schein TechCentral. TechCentral has more than 15 years of experience serving the dental and healthcare industries with a three-pronged approach to providing IT hardware, support, and data protection/preservation.

Prong 1: Hardware
Your high-end dental imaging equipment and practice management software is only as good as the supporting technology. Your dental practice needs an IT provider who understands how dental equipment and software works with workstations, servers, printers, scanners, and peripheral devices. TechCentral has relationships with several technology manufacturers, working with them to pre-configure and test each unique solution to help provide peace of mind that you’re getting the right equipment for your dental environment.

Prong 2: Support
How many thousands of dollars would you lose if your computers went down, even for a few hours? TechCentral can help decrease the likelihood and amount of costly downtime issues with support that’s available when you need it. With prompt remote assistance from experienced dental technology professionals, as well as on-site technicians, if needed, TechCentral can help keep your practice running smoothly.

Prong 3: Data Protection
No single defense can protect your patient data completely from computer attacks. Used as part of a comprehensive security plan along with antivirus software, digital dentists should use a firewall. TechCentral provides WatchGuard appliances for an advisable extra layer of data protection. In the event your data is compromised, TechCentral Hybrid Backup Services provides a redundant, remotely managed backup and recovery solution both on a local backup device and in the cloud.
