Recently, XLDent completed testing of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 in a clinical environment. We tested the tablet in several dental clinics in both treatment and hygiene rooms. The feedback was fantastic! Our test clinicians loved the portability, quality, performance, and ease-of-use. We liked the dependability and ease of installation.
The advantages of the MS Surface Pro are many, but the big one is the low cost for such a powerful tablet. It’s a high-power desktop in a light-weight, mobile tablet PC! Our test doctors also said that they had no problem reading x-rays, or taking x-rays in a wireless environment.* And, they really liked how clean and up-to-date their treatment rooms looked with this technology.
In conclusion, both the doctors and hygienists felt it improved their clinical workflow and helped them engage patients in treatment. The MS Surface Pro saves money on cabling, mounts, and reduces space requirements (no keyboard, mouse or computer box.) AND, the entire XLDent Suite performs beautifully on this tablet.
Many IT people will tell you that tablets don’t work in a dental office. That’s not true! XLDent has been installing medical-grade tablets for years and our recent test of the MS Surface Pro proves them wrong. The facts are that tablet installations are not as profitable, most dental PMS systems are not tablet-friendly and do not work well in a wireless environment. Therefore, many IT people stay clear of them.
If you want a tablet, you should have one. Please call us for more information at 1-800-328-2925 or visit www.xldent.com.
