Our new hygiene wing is finally finished. It took a lot longer than expected but it’s done and it’s perfect! 3 brand new ops with top-of-the-line equipment including:
- Low dose X-rays from Sirona & Progeny
- Cavitron sonic ultrascalers by Dentsply
- Cordless Midwest Freedom Prophy system
- Sopro Life digital intraoral camera from Acteon
- HDTVs by Samsung
- HD Monitors by LG
- Custom high performance PC Workstations by ASUS
Before putting these new rooms into operation, there were times we couldn’t get a patient scheduled for over 2 months, which was unacceptable. With this new hygiene wing, we have tripled our hygiene capacity and significantly reduced the wait time to get an appointment. Hygienist interviews are done and we are preparing to introduce the newest addition to our team in the coming weeks.
This project was supposed to take 2 weeks and ended up taking more than a month because of all the unexpected problems that kept popping up like adding additional wall supports for the X-rays. Regardless, thanks to our friends Evan, Ryan, Vince, John, Jesse & Andrew at Patterson Dental for all the hard work and a big thanks to our friend Rene for helping get our I.T. situation worked out.
