Exceptional Images Yield Predictable Outcomes

Sarah Jockin, DDS, a private practitioner in Lutz, Florida, on Dentsply Sirona’s Orthophos 3D Imaging

In 2009, I earned my dental degree from the University of California, San Francisco, and relocated to Florida with my family. After a brief associateship in corporate dentistry, I started a private dental practice from scratch and have performed integrated implantology using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) since then. My practice offers all aspects of family and implant dentistry to our patients. In 2016, my husband and I founded CEREC® Seminars, a digital education center and dental lab designed to support CEREC dentists. As an emerging implant dentist with limited funds, I invested in the upgradable Orthophos panoramic imaging system from Dentsply Sirona. Fortunately, my dental office was very well received by the community, and with all of the demand, upgrading to the Orthophos XG 3D became a reality only 6 months later.

1. With Dentsply Sirona 3D Imaging, you will experience exceptional image quality at a low radiation dose, shorter office visits for your patients, and greater certainty in your procedures. 2. Patients will have a better understanding of the diagnosis and accept treatment more readily. 3. Dentsply Sirona 3D Imaging offers safe, predictable diagnosis and treatment outcomes.

How has 3D imaging benefitted your practice? Increased diagnostic ability allows me to plan my implant cases and treat my patients with incredible confidence.

Has CBCT simplified other procedures?I have incorporated sleep medicine into my practice, and CBCT evaluation of airway spaces in relation to jaw position has proven valuable.

What is unique about the Orthophos family? The quality is unparalleled, and it seamlessly integrates my radiographic and intraoral scans, design software, and milling units.
