Eimear O’Connell talks about her journey into digital dentistry and what the future might hold.
She explains how Julian Caplan was her first inspiration into digital dentistry and therefore she aspired to reach the levels of dentistry he was performing.
Eimear started her journey with a CEREC (Chairside Economic Restorations of Esthetic Ceramics) machine to offer same-day dentistry.
Some of the obstacles Eimear experienced when she first started have disappeared.
She explains, for example, that the technology has now made everything much more intuitive and easy to use.
Her advice for somebody starting in digital is to try the scanners and have a vision for what you want to offer.
Know what you want to be able to do before you make the capital investment.
