The Anti-Dentit and the Mac

I just went to Dr. Emery’s office for a consultation on getting all four of my wisdom teeth removed. First, let me tell you, I am in the WRONG business. This guy is going to be pulling in more then I make in a month for about 3 hours worth of work. I really think I need to go back to school for this kind of stuff!
Anyways, I have to say, I was pretty impressed with Dr. Emery. Not just his professionalism, but also his office setup. His entire office is ran by 24″ iMacs, (pictured left). He is totally tring to go green. While I still had to fill out about 5 pieces of paper, he is trying to cut down on paper by having new patients fill out all the info on his site which in turn automatically goes into his system. TO COOL! What I thought was really interesting was that he uses MacPractice DDS software for all patient history and appointment notes as well as prescriptions and everything like that. Even cooler was the X-ray machine. I had to get another Pan Scan of my mouth. Rather then developing an x-ray, the scan automatically goes into a program which is ran on a PC (to bad). Well, to pull those up on any of the iMacs in the office, they use VMware that runs WindowsXP and then pulls up the pan scan image from the PC server. I have to say, that is to damn cool.

Talking a little with Dr. Emery, he said if the system works correctly, he can quickly pull up anything he needs to about any patient history in his system and view it all on his iPhone. NOW THAT IS AWESOME!

it is no wonder getting my wisdom teeth pulled is going to be so expensive!
