I wish I had gone with TDO years ago. Since I have tasted the "Kool Aide" last February I have really raised my own personal bar and I marvel at all the truly competent practitioners grace this list serve with their great cases. It's been an education for me and I'm still learning at 61. It's hard to imagine anyone on this chat not being inspired by the level of treatment presented day in and day out. TDO should be a required core competency for any endodontic PG.
I wanted to take a minute to say thanks to the super helpful support staff at TDO. Y'aU rock. really appreciate that every time we have an issue there is someone there who is able and willing to help. It is never good to have to make that caU because it means something has failed and the doctor that usually has all the answers in the practice has hit a dead end and needs to call for back up. This is not something that he is use to doing. Recently the server crashed in my satellite office totally stopping my ability to take care of my patients in that location. My IT explained that it would take at least a week just for him to get a new server much less get it running, but fortunately Allison and Ryan were able to get me back up and running so I am back at work in that office only having lost the day that the server crashed. I rcally appreciate their hard work and willingness to find a work around for my situation. I am glad to be back worrying about fixing teeth and not concerned with how to break the news to my patients that we are going tu have to reschedule them due to computer issues and they are guing to have to wait longer to be seen. Given my luck with servers over the past 6 months I am still worried when the next crash is coming, but I am able to sleep well knowing that the TDO support staff will be there to help.
I want to express my thoughts lately that I am Grateful to TDO and Gary Carr for making part of his lifes work to better our profession with pioneering the microscope use, and also the software, and taking the time and significant effort to put on training for implant placement, etc. More and more as I work I realize how much less I could do for patients had I not been able to use a scope all day long, how much pain I would be in if I tried to do a good job without it, and also the software. Every day patients are so impressed and grateful that I have the software that I have to allow the type of communication we can use with TDO. Also, just being surrounded by some of the best endodontists in the world through TDO Chat, keeps me realizing that I have much to aspire to and helps keep my game up.
When I began my post-graduate training in Endodontics I viewed root canal treatment as a great challenge and I hoped to become merely competent enough to handle the types of complex cases that specialists routinely see. However when I joined TDO I quickly realized that competence was only the starting point. Excellence and constant striving for professional and personal betterment are demanded from TDO clinicians. What separates a TDO'er from any other endodontist is the ability to look at any one case for its unique educational element. We're all here to learn from our patients so that we can continuously improve our knowledge and skills. From office design to website maintenance, retreatment advice to implant planning, surgical guidance to challenging patient management, TDO offers a value to the practicing clinician unlike any other.
Implementing TDO as my record-keeping and documentation software during my endodontic residency was one of the best decisions I have ever made. TDO has allowed me to have the ultimate experience as a resident. The imaging module allows complete integration with my operating microscope and digital radiography. TDO also allows me to track potential board cases, organize my literature, and give case presentations and lectures.
In the process of getting material together for the site, i.e. new photographs and copy, and with a tremendous amount of help from Sean Doonan at TDO, I found that everything I really needed, was built in to the TDO website template. Furthermore, and really most importantly, I can modify the website easily, at any time, from any country, instantly with my MacBook air. My TDO Website is equally functional on a PC, laptop, android or iphone. They also, thank you Gary, have a two way Blog.
Imagine having world renowned Endodontists at your fingertips. There is no program, software, consulting services or seminars that can provide all of these services except TDO. I do not have to imagine. I have it. I don’t have to wait for the next big Endodontic meeting to attend lectures by the leaders in our field. TDO provides these at your fingertips. My referring Dentists are truly spoiled by TDO with instant access to my treatment notes and radiographs for their patients. My staff has instant access to any information myself or the referring Dentist may need. The layers of TDO are amazing. The support team is incredible, with instant response to any questions I may have. With TDO, I have surrounded myself with the elite Endodontists in the country. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that I am on a path of success with TDO’s support.
