According to a report from The Press Enterprise, a dental hygiene clinic in Redlands, California recently received a $25,000 grant that was used to expand the clinics' ability to treat an increased number of patients. Since 2008, the clinic has been in partnership with the Loma Linda University School of Dentistry and sees 2,000 patients annually.
As a result of such a large patient caseload and the fact that screenings and other oral care services are conducted by students at the university while under the supervision of licensed practitioners at most clinics, dental hygiene academic software is a highly useful tool in helping maintain the operational efficiency of any institution.
Not only does the technology help with patient scheduling and helping dentists see an increased number of patients without feeling overwhelmed, it is also useful to track what kind of services patients receive and how serious their dental problems actually are.
This information can be used in determining if advanced oral care is needed or if prevention education is necessary. Dental hygiene academic software is a must for any school with a hands-on clinic facility that is used for student education.
