XLDent completes testing of MS Surface Pro 3 in Clinical Environment

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.

*Digital technology approved for wireless installations.

MN eHealth Summit 11th Anniversary

This week, XLDent attended the 11th Anniversary MN eHealth Summit in St. Louis Park, MN.  On the second day of the event the keynote speaker Mitchell H. Katz, MD now the director of the Los Angeles County Dept. of Health Services shared his unique insights to the applicability of data elements when caring for patients and using that information to inform on population health.

XLDent enjoys being part of the eHealth Summit in order to advance the interoperability between all types of healthcare records. We are also helping Mark Jurkovich, DDS, MBA, MHI and Bridgett Anderson, LDA, BA-Regulatory Affairs Manager for the MDA to educate dentists on XLDent’s EDR (Electronic Dental Record).

This year, the eHealth Summit hosted educational workshops for specialty healthcare settings, and Dentistry was one of them.  This workshop gave dental attendees an opportunity to openly discuss how the 2015 EHR Mandate will affect Dentistry.

Ms. Anderson invited XLDent as a guest presenter to help show how XLDent’s EDR can work in a dental environment.  The demonstration includes clinical workflow as well as XLDent’s integrated secure email and ePrescribing solutions.

2015 American Academy of Pediatrics Dental Meeting

XLDent is here in Seattle, WA supporting the AAPD by being part this year’s annual Pediatric Dental Meeting.  Many doctors are stopping by to see the ease of use of our Electronic Dental Record.  We have many pediatric dentists currently using our systems, as they find it to be much easier to use with far more efficient workflows than anything else on the market.  All of the new prospects that are stopping by see the immediate benefits of XLDent’s tablet technology and are making comments that it is a perfect fit for the fast-paced pediatric office.

While here in Seattle, we also visited Burkhart Dental’s corporate office.  XLDent is very proud to have Burkhart as a distribution partner.  We work closely with them to ensure the success and satisfaction of all our clients.
