cassettes and tubs to pre-stock each room-
all before a single patient arrives.
"The cabinetry allowed me to work solo,
without an assistant, for the first month I was
open," said Dr. Nguyen, who sees eight to
ten patients a day per operatory. "Having
everything properly stocked in the rooms
means my assistants don't have to get
up in the middle of appointments to grab
anything, which wastes time. My efficiency
and productivity have increased greatly."
Dr. Nguyen credits the cabinets' efficiency
as the reason she felt confident transitioning
to a single-entry design. More private and
quiet thanks to the single doorway, she
also added a noise-canceling ceiling grid,
to further dull any stray, ambient noise from
other rooms. The treatment rooms operate
as beautifully as they look, with soothing
monochromatic color tones that have a pop
of cheerful blue upholstery.
"The organization provided by the cabinets
is what made it possible to switch to single
entry, and I love everything about it."

The doctor credits a transition to single-entry operatories as the biggest boost to her new practice, as
they are more private and strategically configured to deliver instruments within arms reach.

Technology Gets Big Boost With Added
Square Footage
With the emphasis on streamlining
workflows, the doctor chose a full suite of
digital technology from Dentsply Sirona,
fully integrated with the operatory treatment
center. From the Orthophos SL 3D cone
beam and the Primescan intraoral scanner
to a CEREC in-office mill, everything
communicates seamlessly, bringing images
and treatment planning right to the patient.
Digital images are showcased on the
chairside monitor in real time for ease in
diagnosis and patient education. Then
the team can begin procedures almost
immediately by reaching into a bin that's
ready to go, within arm's reach!
The new office has also given the doctor the
chance to add new services to her menu.
She didn't have room for a cone beam or
an in-house mill in the Mountain View office,
but now offers same-day dentistry in the
new location. She estimates she sees one
same-day dentistry patient every day, and
fully expects that to grow quickly as patients
learn about it.
The Orthophos SL 3D unit has also provided
better patient outcomes because the doctor

The Dentsply Sirona Orthophos SL 3D is a piece of equipment Dr. Nguyen wanted but couldn't fit
into her first office. It provides superior diagnostics to patients and has helped her expand into more
implant work and same-day restorations.
