Carestream Dental in the News: Dental Economics

As part of my regular column in Dental Economics, I recently had the opportunity to speak with Dr. David Little out of San Antonio, Texas. As an implant dentist, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is very important when it comes to Dr. Little’s treatment planning and evaluation. However, his experience in selecting a unit was a little different than most dental professionals, as he operates a multi-disciplinary practice and had to consider the needs of all specialists during the buying process (spoiler alert: he ended up choosing the CS 9000 3D system).

Read the article in Dental Economics to learn more about how 3D imaging helped Dr. Little with:

  • diagnoses;
  • treatment planning;
  • practice return-on-investment; and
  • case acceptance.

Be sure to check back in June to read my interview with Dr. Mark Setter, a leading periodontist out of Metro Detroit.
