Using dental software to keep students interested

October 8th, 2014


Keeping oral hygiene classes interesting is strongly reliant on the material. When students work with the latest dental hygiene academic software software, they are not only gaining important tool​ sets when it comes to working outside of the field, but they are likely to become more interested and focused because they are looking at material they haven't seen before. But some classes will always necessarily be heavy on technical information that could be boring if students don't focus enough.

One way to keep students focused, according to Dentistry IQ is to give a presentation that encourages those who are watching to empathize with what you are showing. By humanizing the material, the teacher can give people the opportunity to learn about something in a new way. Another option is to give Power Point presentations out to students via email so they can take notes on printed-out copies. This will enable them to stay focused on the presentation.

Giving a professional presentation is one half of a great classroom experience, but another way to engage students is to talk to them directly during the break. Introducing yourself to students can help break the ice and encourage them to think of you as a professional.

Another reason for having up-to-date dental academic software
In addition to helping students organize their study material and get the most recent findings to incorporate into a classroom setting, having people work on the latest dental software will allow them to gain practice on EHR software that they will likely use in the field. According to the AMA, old EHR software has a tendency to be difficult to use, and this can give the students a hard time when they want to practice on their own. Doctors who use old EHR software are often pressed for time because they spend so much of it just figuring out how to send out records to insurance companies.

"Physician experiences documented by the AMA and RAND demonstrate that most electronic health record systems fail to support efficient and effective clinical work," said AMA President-elect Steven J. Stack. "This has resulted in physicians feeling increasingly demoralized by technology that interferes with their ability to provide first-rate medical care to their patients."

Having updated dental software encourages students to expect the best, and it will also reduce time on the backend when using the programs to schedule appointments and send out invoices.
