Security cameras are a hot-button issue in dental offices.

Some dentists believe they’re a necessity, while others see no need for them in their practices.

And team members? Many feel as though their privacy has been invaded by the cameras that lurk in every corner.

Security cameras were a recent topic on DentistryIQ (“Human resources issues” and “You’re being watched”), and that got the conversation going. Some of you shared your opinions on social media and others sent your comments to DIQ.

We’d like to keep the conversation going and gather more opinions. Does your office have security cameras? What do you think about them? If you’re the boss, why did you install them? If you’re a team member, did your boss tell you why the cameras were installed?

Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts about security cameras in dental practices in this brief survey. We’ll share the results in an article on DentistryIQ so that readers can learn just where their offices stand in relation to others on the issue of security cameras.

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, security cameras are here to stay.
