Dental Paging System
The VisiCom wireless dental paging system is well-suited to the needs of the busy dentist, and it surpasses light signaling office communications equipment in several ways.
NOTIFY STAFF OF PATIENT ARRIVALS
When a patient arrives, the receptionist presses the button for the assistant who will seat the patient. The VisiCom dental paging system sends a nonverbal message throughout the practice to notify the assistant the patient is waiting in the reception area and is ready to be taken to the operatory. The first available assistant responds simply by pressing Clear, greets the patient and seats them in the operatory. Before leaving the operatory, the assistant presses the button for the next provider who will see the patient, typically either the hygienist or the dentist, telling them in which room the patient is ready to be seen.
NOTIFY DENTIST WHEN PATIENT IS READY TO BE SEEN
If the patient will see the hygienist before the physician, most practices like to give the dentist a few minutes advance notice. Five minutes, or so, before the hygienist finishes their procedure, the button labeled for the dentist is pressed notifying them in which room to see the patient. When the dentist arrives, they simply press the button below the room number they entered and their LED changes from blinking to solid in their assigned color. This solid LED allows others to know the doctor's present location.
CALL FOR AN ASSISTANT OR X-RAY
When the dentist needs the assistant or an X-ray, he or she simply presses the assigned button for Assistant or X-Ray, one button, one press. The VisiCom unit sends a nonverbal message throughout the practice to notify the assistant in which room the doctor has made the request. Pressing Clear from any location lets the doctor know the message was received and the requested person or procedure is on the way.
