Comparison of Dental Delivery System Layouts
Determining your delivery system layout is one of the first steps to improving the overall health and performance of your clinical practice. A general practitioner may only use handpieces 10% of the time, but handpiece placement shapes the remaining room layout.
Too often practitioners focus on handpiece placement and compromise more significant aspects of overall practice success.
Choose a layout below to view the pros and cons of four distinct handpiece placement choices, and consider how careful productivity planning might change the way you look at dental delivery.
- Smaller room size
- Patients less threatened by handpieces in their visual/personal space than with O.T.P. delivery
- Assistant free to circulate
- Space available for specialty equipment
- Patients not threatened by the sight of handpieces
