If you are doing a new office construction or even if you have an existing speaker system, more and more dentists and doctors are migrating to the Amazon alexa smart devices.
With the cost savings and convenience that smart speakers provide, this decision is a no brainer.
Here are some pros and cons

They easily walk away. Theft of these devices from offices sometimes happen. But they are easily tracked.

Most clients without video capabilities in their operatories like the echo view device below.
