Technology driving growth of dental industry, worker preparedness

April 22nd, 2014


Given the technological changes taking place within the health care sector, dental academic software can greatly improve patient care for those individuals preparing to transition from the classroom to a clinical environment. According to a recent press release citing a study conducted by The Lancet, a weekly publication dedicated to the global health care sector, a higher level of education is necessary in helping to achieve better outcomes for patients.

The research conducted by the publication focused primarily on registered nurses working within a hospital setting and found both failure-to-rescue and mortality rates can be significantly lowered with better educational preparedness. The study showed that patient mortality rates can be lowered by as much as 7 percent for every 10 percent of nurses who have a bachelor's degree.

This information also applies to the dental industry as those entering the field are not only prepared from a clinical standpoint, but also in the use of dental enterprise software. Dental software will become critical as Report Buyer stated  that the U.S. market for materials used in dentistry currently has a market valuation of more than $1 billion.

Dental enterprise software can greatly assist dentists in addressing the needs of patients. Practicing dentists can analyze what an individual's needs are and set up a plan of care to address them. Software can also help keep accurate track of dental records, the number of visits made and procedures that a patient has undergone. Dental software is also useful when someone decides to change dentists.

The press release stated that technology is driving the growth of this sector with respect to patient comfort and management of a dentist's workflow. This data highlights the importance of future dental professionals becoming familiar and comfortable using dental academic software.
