Backing Up Your Data - An Article from my Technology Evangelist Column in DPR

The huge mistake that could cripple your dental practice

Backing up your data is easy to do — but not doing it could mean the end of your practice.

When you live in a digital world, you become dependent on your technology. Think about it. Probably 10 or maybe 15 years ago having a mobile phone was a luxury or perhaps a hassle, but either way it wasn’t that important.

Nowadays you get a mile or so away from home and realize you left your phone on the kitchen table and you will turn around to go back and get it. That’s not a bad thing. At one time the “horseless carriage” was considered new technology and now we can’t get along without it.

Of course the thing that is difficult about technology is suddenly not having it. Just like turning around to go get your phone, we’ve all become so dependent on technology that when we don’t have access to it, things tend to grind to a halt.

Trust me on this one, if you are truly dependent on technology, you’ll do anything you can to avoid being without it. That’s why this month’s Technology Evangelist column will focus on backing up your data and making sure it is safe… just in case of a disaster.

For the rest of my article, here is the link to the DPR website.
