The SoproCARE has been a great addition to our hygiene department as it allows patients to visualize the ramifications of their current oral hygiene. Furthermore it helps solidify the patient's need for periodontal treatment or more frequent dental visits though education and better communication. That is why I have joined The Movement with ACTEON to help Fight Periodontal Disease even in its earliest stages.
The SorpoCare cameras have been one of the best additions to our practice in years. The high quality of image has been critical in communication of conditions to our patients, and has increased their understanding of their own dental and periodontal health dramatically. We have also seen an increase in case acceptance, as well as insurance reimbursement from the use of these images before, during, and after treatment. We couldn't practice without this technology!
