Why invest in a digital veterinary dental system?

A digital veterinary dental system can be a great asset to any veterinary practice. We have created the following cost / benefit analysis to show you just how much money a digital dental system can save you. The benefit analysis is based on a single veterinary doctor practice seeing five dental patients a week, and taking 20 dental films per week. This is a very conservative estimate, which results in 960 dental films per year. Most veterinarians implementing improved dental care into their practices easily average double that number of films. Multi-doctor veterinary practices enjoy multiple savings.

1. Cost of Film


2. Cost of Chemistry


3. Employee time to develop, rinse, handle, and catalog the films. This is estimated in human dentistry to be $2-5 per film. If this seems high, consider the total costs for your employees, which is much higher than their hourly wage. We use the lowest figure.


4. Filing system for films. This includes simple envelopes or dental film mounts.


5. Fewer re-takes. Conservatively, you will need to re-take your films around 10% of the time for improper technique. These re-takes use film, chemistry, and more employee time.


Total hard cost savings per doctor per year


There are also some “soft cost savings” that are more difficult to quantitate, yet result in undeniable positive financial effects.

  • Chemical tracking and disposal costs are a normal part of human dentistry. This will inevitably become a factor for veterinarians in the future. Registration fees, compliance paperwork and hazardous chemical disposal fees are all likely, and are not required for digital systems.

  • X-rays are easily exported for emailing or printing. X-rays can be emailed to the patient’s owner for viewing and discussion.

  • No clinical downtime while you wait for a film to be developed. This can save many hours per year.
