With all the direct to consumer talk these days about dental procedures, it’s scary to think patients may forgo the benefit of a dentist’s expertise for a shortcut with no regard for the consequences. Straumann is having none of that as the company prepares to launch their new integrated orthodontic solution, DenToGo.
DenToGo is Straumann’s exciting new mobile orthodontics monitoring solution. This workflow allows for more efficient patient scheduling, increased patient compliance, and personalized messaging. One of the complaints many orthodontists and dentists have is compliance because treatment schedules can vary depending on the approach and each patient’s needs. DenToGo helps you monitor patient progress with dynamic wear schedules.
DenToGo makes it possible to keep a closer eye on your patients’ ClearCorrect treatment so you can schedule appointments more efficiently. Patients scan their teeth at home and the DenToGo app helps you assess whether they're ready for the next step. Each patient is provided with a portable scanner that is easy to use. Through this communication mode, providers can personalize their messages to patients without needing additional chair time. Patients don’t have to come in as frequently if they don’t want to, yet the interaction between them and the dentist/orthodontist is still present.
The DenToGo app improves compliance as it helps patients take a more active role in monitoring their progress and working toward their goals. The scanner provides on the spot in-practice assessment of their oral health and your treatment recommendations. You also have the ability to motivate patients with instant previews of how their smile will look during treatment and in the future.
DenToGo is like an extension of practice communication, helping you monitor and guide the treatment you prescribed and organize your team workflow. This also helps reduce risk for relapse.
