Emerging Dental Equipment Technology

Thanks to advancements in the dental industry, there are plenty of new technologies and improved old technologies bringing innovation and convenience to dental practices. A shift towards digital equipment has produced technology that will continue to i
mprove into 2016. Check out some of the notable updates below.

Digital X-Rays
With digital x-rays comes better image resolution, less radiation and enhanced diagnostics. The equipment has the ability to zoom in on certain parts of an image as well as apply filters to uncover issues. Unlike x-rays of the past, images can be archived and sent without losing quality.

Anesthetic Buffering
Earlier this year Anutra Medical introduced a local anesthetic delivery system that allows dentists to keep bicarbonate for four days, instead of changing it each day. The system’s buffered anesthetic holds faster thanks to neutral ph, and features a disposable, multi-dose syringe. Anesthetic buffering and related systems continue to evolve, bringing convenience to the dental office.

Intraoral Cameras
Intraoral cameras in the past remained a costly but important dental office technology. Recently, companies like MouthWatch have unveiled considerably less-expensive alternatives that connect with a wide variety of software applications and a cloud storage system. This affordable development allows dentists to have more on hand and expand available treatment options.

Cone Beam
3D imaging systems known as cone beam computer tomography (CBCT) is a popular, emerging dental trend that creates 3D models of the oral anatomy of a patient. The technology is a tremendous asset for treatment planning and delivers very low radiation doses.

Implant Surgical Guide Systems
Surgical guide systems are being used to create dental implants in-house, instead of having the service referred out. By using 3D imaging technology, the system can create a 3d printed drill guide making the process quicker and easier for dentists. This allows dentists to better meet the need of patients.

4 New Ways to Use Social Media Tools for Your Business

Simply existing and posting on social media won’t cut it anymore for small businesses. Finding new ways to connect with customers and make the most of these platforms is the best way to get ahead. So how can your business take the lead? Here are four new ways to use social media for business.


  1. Tackle Trends: Big news, negative or positive, inevitably creates a lot of discussion online. Why not take advantage of these opportunities? Keep a sharp eye out for breaking news, hot trends and new technology in your industry. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box.
  2. Take Advantage of Video: Social media is moving further from text and closer to visual imagery, especially video. According to Cisco, video will account for 69% of all consumer internet traffic by 2017. Instead of using Facebook or Twitter to post text-heavy information about your products or services, why not create short videos giving customers an inside look.
  3. Try Third-Party Apps: Sometimes social media platforms can be difficult to manage and understand. There are a variety of convenient and user-friendly third-party applications available to make things easier. Check out this article on Entrepreneur for a list of some of the most popular app.
  4. Track Competitors: There’s a lot you can do in terms of self-improvement. But don’t forget about keeping an eye on your competitors! Track your competitors’ activity and content online to see what’s working, what’s not working and what they’re missing. Beef up your own strategies based on your findings to improve and differentiate.

Cutting Costs with Office Essentials

Finding ways to cut costs is always on a business owner’s mind. Even small decisions can make a big difference, including your office essentials spending habits. Are there areas where your business could save money? Check out these simple ways to cut back on office supplies spending:

Buy in Bulk…Sometimes
This common money-saving technique can benefit your personal expenses as well as business expenses. Buying products in b
ulk will nearly always offer a cheaper unit price than buying in small quantities, saving you money in the long run.

There are drawbacks to buying in large quantities, though. Avoid buying products that are reusable or rarely used. While purchasing 1,000 pens might seem like a savvy buy, will your office really need that many? Keep in mind that in the short-term, buying in smaller quantities can free up cash for other, more important expenses.

Purchase Generic
According to CBS Money Watch, name-brand products will frequently deliver better quality with the higher price. However, it’s suggested that for commodity items the generic version will typically work just as well. Do a brand and price check for office items to see where you can save money by switching to generic.

Eliminate Paper
Did you know that according to the U.S. Small Business Administration, going paperless can cut costs, improve your operability, minimize risk and reduce your carbon footprint? With so many benefits, it seems like a no-brainer. While you may need to invest in software or cloud computing capabilities to transition from physical data storage, the switch will save you money in the long run.

Centralize Your Office Supplies
Have you ever placed an order for office essentials, only to discover you had plenty in a forgotten supply cabinet somewhere? Keep your office supplies in one location to make inventory a painless and accurate process. No longer will you over-order (and waste money) or run out (and waste money buying last-minute at a retail store). The Order Expert gives great tips on organizing and consolidating.

Negotiate with Your Supplier
Keep a close working relationship with your supplier to stay up-to-date on sales, loyalty programs, warranties or other discount programs. Ask about low-price guarantees to see if your suppliers or vendors will beat out other low-price options.

Keeping expenses in check, no matter how small, is a valuable practice for any business. Tiger Leasing understands that saving money can mean the difference between growth and decline for a business.
