Due to COVID-19, dentistry leaders have had to quickly develop strategies that best position their organizations, while also being thoughtful about the future. “The Coronavirus pandemic is like nothing else we’ve seen and dentistry will be forever changed,” said Mr. Thorne of PDS, which supports over 800 dental practices in 22 states. “It’s more important than ever that we work together as we shape the future of dentistry, and I’m pleased we’re able to discuss these important issues in this forum.”
Pacific Dental Services partnered with Envista for the implementation of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) for its supported dental practices. Cone Beam Computed Tomography is an innovative imaging technology that provides clinicians with 3D views of their patients’ dental anatomy. This monumental achievement allows the dentists utilizing 3D imaging with a state-of-the-art diagnostic tool and allows patients to be more engaged and see what their dentists see – a more comprehensive view of their teeth, oral, and maxillofacial region. The extraordinary visibility of 3D imaging will lead to a greater understanding of dental conditions and treatment plan options. Pacific Dental Services’ primary purpose is to support dentists so they can create Healthier, Happier Patients® and today’s announcement is part of the DSO’s commitment to patient-centric care.
