Technological advances continue to improve our lives. It helps our education, our

safety, it keeps us connected to each other and its fun! Consider your latest smartphone or laptop, we had to understand the technology. Not only did we learn new functions, we then learnt some shortcuts and efficient ways to use the technology. After going through these initial learning phases we have mastered the technology and we are now using it without thought. Digital Orthodontics is no different.

While introducing newer methods into the workplace can seem daunting sometimes, with perseverance and motivation not only can orthodontists save time and money with the use of digital orthodontic practices, but processes are more efficient and treatments are more effective not to mention fun for both employees and importantly patients.
