Below are a few mobile apps available on Android and IOS that can help improve workflow and save time for you and your team in the dental office.
1. Dental photography apps
Dental photography apps can be a great guide for taking consistent and clear dental photos.
Two of my favourite photo mobile apps are Invisalign Photo Uploader and Dental Shooting.
Invisalign Photo Uploader
The Invisalign Photo Uploader mobile app is free for all Invisalign Providers. It uses your cell phones camera and uses a guide to take all classic orthodontic extra oral and intra oral images. The images can be uploaded directly to your Invisalign provider site or can be printed/emailed and uploaded to your clinics dental software or printed in placed in the patients chart.
