DIGITAL DIAGNOSTICS
Bringing Extraordinary Smiles to Patients
Through Digital Photography
By Chuck Harding, DMD
Over the last three decades, imaging technologies have played an
integral role in my approach to patient care. In the past, many patients
were motivated to treatment primarily by pain. Today, patients have the
opportunity to view their dental condition in high definition and true color
through DEXcam™ 4 HD digital camera images.
Our hygienist starts the conversation with the patient, and when I arrive in
the operatory, the images are already on the screen, ready for my clinical
opinion. These images build patients' trust in my diagnosis, even before I
enter the room.
This is my third generation digital camera, and it definitely rivals my
12-megapixel SLR camera for image quality. With its true-to-color images,
patients can see natural color tones-pink and healthy gums or bleeding
points of gum disease, and if teeth are white, black, or stained. With greater
understanding, they can decide about appropriate treatment, without pain.
With DEXcam™ 4 HD, my team and I can view current images along with
historical digital photographs and radiographs on the same screen. Patients
see the progression of their dental condition and any results of delaying
treatment. With this visual history, patients learn if their disease is chronic
and progressive, a delay could lead to potentially more extensive and more
expensive treatment.
Once patients are comfortable, we can begin a conversation about what
they think they want or need alongside our recommendations. The most
exciting part, for me, is when patients

get so involved they reach out and touch
the monitor. When they get interactive,
I know they are really "getting it."
The images are also very helpful in
communicating with my lab. I can
email multiple images with excellent
resolution and color accuracy.

These images build patients' trust in my
diagnosis.

Digital images are also effective in insurance preauthorization. Our
Dentrix®, DEXIS™ digital X-rays, and DEXcam™ 4 HD photos are fully
integrated for filing e-claims. By sending radiographs, photographs, and
intraoral photographs, we are not denied for lack of documentation.
My real goal in using this imaging technology is to create a conversation
that makes the patients feel comfortable and puts them in control of
their dental future. I want them to mark up my monitor with fingerprints
because they are so connected to being a part of their own treatment.
My new camera and other digital imaging technologies allow me to be
a part of patients' visualization of a future of healthier teeth, gums, and
extraordinary smiles.

DEXIS™ CariVu™
A brilliant new approach to caries detection.
DEXIS CariVu is a compact, portable caries detection device that uses patented
transillumination technology to support the identification of occlusal, interproximal, and
recurrent carious lesions and cracks. CariVu continues in the long DEXIS tradition of
providing intuitive, easy-to-use diagnostic tools for the dental community.
By hugging the tooth and bathing it in safe near-infrared light, CariVu's transillumination
technology makes the enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb
the light. This allows the clinician to see through the tooth, exposing its structure and the
actual structure of any carious lesions with very high accuracy.
