Oral health continues to be a top concern for both adults and children. According to a recent press release from Xpress Dental Clinics, the FDI World Dental Federation recently unveiled a report showing that nearly every adult in the world suffers from some form of tooth decay.
The FDI World Dental Federation suggested the oral health care sector needs to bolster itself with more dental practitioners. Additionally, clinics can help combat this growing problem by increasing the availability of care to those who may not be able to afford it. Clinics should should also make preventative care and patient education a top priority.
KSNF, an NBC affiliate based in Missouri and Kansas, recently reported on four dental clinics in the Joplin, Missouri area that have joined forces to provide affordable dental care for adult residents. Dental software is an ideal solution for any clinic attempting to increase collaboration with other institutions.
These clinics in Missouri will be targeting uninsured patients, as well as those currently enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid or who are 150 percent below the poverty line. DSO software helps any clinic chart patients information and make it easier to share data in the event a patient needs more advanced care.
