My name is Anthony Ramirez, and I'm a general dental practitioner. We practice here in Bay Ridge Brooklyn. I've been in practice for 30 years, and I initially used film-based x-rays. I was having some issues with the development of these x-rays back in 1996 and decided to upgrade to Schick's CDR to Schick Elite, and now I practice with Schick 33 sensors.
The film-based x-ray is really practicing in the 20th century, and the digital practice is in the 21st century. The advantage of the Schick 33 sensor is that it has a very high-quality resolution, and the images are brought up on the computer almost instantaneously, and I'm able to educate the patient as to what their dental needs are. Schick 33 offers us the possibility of using a small Pedo sensor versus the number two sensor, which is a full view sensor, and the patient benefits from this because they have added comfort, and also the image quality stays the same in the various sensor sizes.
I've been a Sirona customer for many, many years, and I've had such great success with the representatives. They've always helped me with any issue I've had. They've helped me upgrade and have given me added support, which has elevated our practice.
When we installed Schick 33, my Patterson rep made himself available to us. He spent a couple of hours with us, and we were up and running in no time. So if you want to improve your practice, enhance your patient's life, you need to go to digital x-rays and Schick 33 sensor.
