BITE DOWN ON THEFT WITH THUNDER TAGS
It’s been about 11 years since I’ve been in the chair. It’s not that I’m afraid of the chair itself or the accompanying bill really. I don’t know what it is; I quite can’t put my finger on it. But that chair, oh that chair makes my cringe. It brings up a host of thoughts in my head (mostly irrational ones) and memories back to my childhood where this illogical fear seems to have its origin. Not that I’ve had any particular negative experience in the chair, I still avoid it as if it were rigged with electricity. But no more could I avoid its leathery grip; the pain to great. So I summoned my inner strength, mustered up all the courage I could find, picked up the phone… and called my dentist. Little did I know my dentist and I would have something very similar in common; the need for Thunder Tags.
I’m sitting in the chair when the dental assistant comes in. She starts the usual battery of questions, asking about allergies, wanting to know how often I floss, etc. Surprisingly enough, she was not jotting these down on some chart for the good doctor to read when he entered, but rather punching the info into an iPad. I remark on how cool that is and the assistant seems shocked that I even care. She finishes up with 20 questions and heads to the door. While she was in, she did mention that they’ve had a few iPads stolen over the last few years. Before I could mention any product protection devices, like the Thunder Tag, the doctor was in and had begun cleaning my chompers.
Of course, he makes the usual dentist conversation (which is so one-sided really). He asked what I did for a living, to which I replied “I waa is wass rerenso.” I guess over the years, dentists become fluent in this language and he remarks how he used to do the work in college on the weekends for a large company. We swapped a few shoplifting stories and he patched my tooth right up. As we were wrapping up, I asked him about the theft of his tablets and if he was doing anything to stop it from happening again. Just like I hadn’t kept up with the latest in dental practices, the doctor hadn’t kept up with the advances in LP. I took out my phone and showed him the Thunder tag.
We talked for a good while about using the Thunder tag in conjunction with an N10 tower to prevent people from stealing his tablets. I even showed him how small the N10 was and that it could easily fit in his waiting room and his patients would more than likely never know it was there, or for what purpose it served. Obviously the doc had to get back to his patients and I had a bill to pay, so I shook his hand and headed on home.
I went back a month later for a follow up and noticed the N10 as soon as I walked through the doors. He took my advice and I couldn’t have been more pleased. After my work was done, we talked a bit about it and not only did he say that the day after I left, a patient had stolen another iPad. That was his wake-up call. It wasn’t so much the cost of replacing each one, but the peace of mind he had that his patient data was physically secured inside his building.
