Thanks to GURU Patient Education Software, patient awareness has reached a new level. GURU Patient Education Software is just one of the many innovative technologies that Dr. Stephen J. Malki employs in his River Edge, Bergen County, NJ, dental practice to improve the overall patient experience. This software program helps his patients better understand their dental needs and the various types of treatment he might propose to them. GURU improves their ability to clearly comprehend the risks and benefits of various treatment options, as well as the consequences of not having treatment performed.

Dental Treatment Goes Digital

According to an old Chinese proverb, "Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand." GURU Patient Education Software uses this philosophy to help patients become more aware and involved with their dental health.

GURU is a Windows-based software program that uses more than 200 animations and images to help patients learn about and comprehend all the different aspects of their dental health and proposed treatment. It is also an interactive program that allows them to actively participate in the treatment process.

The GURU Patient Education Software concept uses preloaded 3D still and motion pictures and simulations to visually educate patients about their dental needs. It further personalizes it by including their own x-rays and intraoral photographs to accurately portray their unique dental situation. Patients can view their customized presentation on a computer, or with the help of the GURU Mobile App, they can watch it on handheld devices.

The customized GURU treatment presentation that Dr. Malki prepares includes information about the procedures and treatments he anticipates during the different phases of his patients' dental care. He can also include any applicable guidelines that he uses to guide him to his recommended treatment plan. Patients can even have their case presentations emailed to them at home so they and their family can review it in detail.

One of the more unique aspects of this program is GURU's "stop, draw, and teach" feature. This allows patient and doctor to draw directly on images while reviewing the case presentation. This allows for a more interactive experience that can help patients better comprehend treatment options. Dr. Malki's main professional concern is that his patients receive the highest quality dental care possible. He understands that presenting his treatment plans to them in a clear and concise visual manner, using GURU software, helps gain their trust and confidence.
