The company has worked directly with orthodontic and dental practices around the world to collaborate on solutions for some of the biggest obstacles to a safe and efficient recovery.
As orthodontic and dental practices prepare to reopen to patients, they face a changing environment; figuring out schedules, protecting staff and patients, and ensuring a time-effective workflow will be more important than ever. After carefully reviewing the concerns of industry practitioners, Carestream Dental recently introduced the Digital Reboot program to support doctors in their recovery.
“We’ve all learned a lot about what’s really important during these challenging times, what patients value and how to adapt to keep our teams safe and our businesses running,” says Ed Shellard, DMD, chief dental officer at Carestream Dental. “Practices have been sharing with us the creative ways they’ve adapted all throughout the shutdown. Following their innovative lead, we’re offering guidance for reopening in a post-coronavirus world; we want them to know they don’t have to figure it all out on their own.”
According to a press release from the company, Carestream Dental has worked directly with practices around the world to collaborate on solutions for some of the biggest obstacles to a safe and efficient recovery.
- Filling Schedules: Enabling virtual waiting rooms, patient load rescheduling and maximizing automation to manage current patient rosters and efficient acquisition of new patients to the practice.
- Practicing Safely: Reassuring patients and supporting new protocols, like contactless forms and payments, single-use accessories and personal protective equipment.

- Operating Virtually: Accessing practice and patient data, education and training from anywhere, creating a more nimble and competitive practice.
The company has stated its commitment to practitioners, as being a partner of choice for a faster and safe business recovery. As the industry continues to adapt to this new environment, digital solutions will accelerate contactless practice care and remote management.
