Why would I want this in my office?
Have you ever had a patient open wide, sit still, and enjoy their dental appointment? Well, buy a Molar Media Mount and you will have a lot more of them!
How heavy is the Molar Media Mount?
It weighs in at a whopping 6.5 ounces (including mounting screws).
I bought the mounts, now what do I need?
1) A tablet of some sort (People use iPad Minis, iPad Airs, Kindle Fire HD's, 7" Android Tablets...These are between 9.5-16 ounces).
2) Headphones (I prefer cordless, bluetooth over the ear headphones).
3) Anti-Glare Screen Protector (takes away the reflection on the glass so the patient doesn't have to watch you inject them).
4) A case for your device (this is optional). You can adhere the mounting plate directly to the back of your device. Some prefer to adhere it to a case instead -- it just has to be a hard plastic case, not the silicone/rubbery types.
You can equip an op with the Molar Media Mount, an iPad Mini, Bluetooth Headphones, Case and Screen protector for less than $550.
These accessories can all be ordered very easily from Amazon.com
Will it fit on my light?
The Molar Media Mount was designed to fit almost every light on the market. On top of that, it comes with a 45-day return policy, so if you have some setup that doesn't work you can send it back.
My light drifts down when I attach the Molar Media Mount to it, what do I do?
You will have to tighten the spring in your dental light (either do it yourself or have your maintenance person do so).
Can I use a full sized iPad?
The Molar Media Mount was designed with smaller tablets in mind. So as long as it is 16oz. or less and you should be fine. Dental office lights are sensitive and rely on a spring to keep them neutral. More weight means more force on the spring. Also, the extra weight can put a lot of force on the arm (especially if the light is moved abruptly). The older iPads are a bit heavy (>16oz).
Can I easily remove the device from the arm? Does the connection lock?
Yes. There is a ball and socket with a locking screw. A few turns of the locking screw and the iPad still swivels, but the joint cannot be separated. A few screws the other direction and you can pop apart the ball and socket joint and easily remove the device to use for patient education or to have them choose a movie.
How do patients watch movies/shows?
You can connect to your wireless network and stream movies off of Netflix or Amazon streaming. (both about $8/month). You can also download movies to store permanently on your device.
What is a good patient education app?
We prefer DDSGP (available in the app store or at www.DDSGP.com) or CAESY Cloud!
Do you have a trial period?
Yes, give it a go for 45 days, if you haven't fallen in love with it, send it back for a full refund!
