What does web-based software mean for dental schools?
This modern approach offers a range of benefits that can significantly enhance the efficiency, productivity, and overall management of dental schools.
Below, we’ll get into of some advantages of web-based technology and explore how it’s revolutionizing dental school operations.
A Footprint-Free Solution for Streamlined Operations
Web-based dental management software presents a game-changing advantage: a zero software install footprint on user machines, except for image capture locations.
It means that users can access the software through their web browsers without the need to install and maintain software on individual devices.
The feature alone eliminates the hassle of managing multiple software installations, updates, and compatibility issues.
By centralizing software on the web, dental schools can focus on patient care without disruption.
The simplicity not only enhances convenience but also frees up valuable time and resources for dental schools.
Reducing IT Overhead with Centralized Updates
One of the challenges dental schools often face is managing software updates across multiple devices.
Traditional software installations require updates to be performed on each individual machine, leading to significant IT overhead and potential disruptions to daily operations.
Web-based dental management software takes a different approach. With this technology, updates are centralized on the server, streamlining the update process.
Dental IT teams no longer need to devote time and resources to updating individual devices; instead, updates are performed on the server, ensuring that all users have access to the latest features and improvements simultaneously.
This reduction in IT overhead not only saves time and resources but also enhances security by ensuring that all devices are consistently up-to-date with the latest security patches and enhancements.
Seamless Updates with Multi-Layer Configuration
Traditional software updates often involve significant changes to the software version or patches that can disrupt workflow and require relearning processes.
Web-based dental management software brings a new level of adaptability through multi-layer configuration. Updates can be seamlessly integrated without the need for software version changes or patches.
This “tents vs buildings” approach ensures that updates are introduced without causing a major upheaval in the way the software is used.
This multi-layer configuration not only minimizes disruptions but also allows dental schools to remain agile and responsive to evolving teaching philosophy and patient needs.
Embrace the Future of Dental Management
In conclusion, web-based dental management software offers a range of real benefits that are transforming the way dental schools operate.
With a zero software install footprint, centralized updates, and seamless multi-layer configurations, this technology empowers dental schools to streamline operations, reduce IT overhead, and remain adaptable in the face of change.
What web-based does not mean for dental schools, is that you must move your software to the cloud. This is not the case. We offer all our customers the choice of hosting Salud on premises or on cloud.
We also offer customers a customer specific cloud service, ensuring the utmost security and data privacy.
As the dental industry continues to advance, embracing web-based technology is a crucial step towards achieving operational excellence and delivering the best possible care to patients.
The future of dental management has arrived, and it’s web-based, efficient, and ready to take schools to new heights.
The University of Bristol’s Dental School will move to a new site in central Bristol in 2023 after outgrowing its existing premises at the Dental Hospital where it has been based for many years.
With this move, the school aims to deliver enhancements to the quality of clinical education along with significant improvements to student, staff, and patient experience.
In 2022 the school set out to procure several IT systems to support the clinical practice elements of the school. After a detailed procurement process, the University of Bristol has awarded the Patient Management System contract to Titanium Solutions, with their product Salud.
Salud will manage interactions with patients digitally, including a full record of all interactions with the patient, treatment planning, booking of appointments and clinics, digital access to scans and images, patient letters and other documents associated with the patient or their treatment.
Over 700 users will use the system, which will be deployed via Azure, in a customer specific cloud instance managed by Titanium.
‘’We’re thrilled to be working with the team at University of Bristol on this exciting new chapter for the Dental School. With a world leading product, and our team’s extensive oral health education experience, we’ll deliver a modern and innovative solution to meet the evolving needs of the Dental School. “said Áine Hayes – Global Head of Marketing, Titanium Solutions.

Who could have predicted changes that the COVID-19 introduced to us?
One thing is certain: the pandemic has introduced innovative approaches to patient care and has shown how important easy access to patient information is.
Technology is constantly changing the way the world does business in the past few years and it’s also made huge impacts in the field of dentistry.
Today, with a global pandemic, we have all had to adjust to living with COVID-19 and will continue to do so. It has created unprecedented repercussions for many and adapting to ensure patient’s and professional’s safety remains a priority.

The word “sustainability” is often thrown around, but what does it mean? Put simply, sustainability is all about being responsible for natural resources.
In dentistry, sustainability means that waste must be handled in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
Reducing the amount of waste produced can be tricky in the healthcare sector, but it is still possible.
Auditing how much waste is thrown away regularly should give your organisation an idea of items that are being overbought.
Additionally, switching to recyclable and compostable items that can break down naturally helps to reduce the amount of waste that is produced.
Reducing the amount of paper can also have a huge impact.
Have you already thought about the advantages of a paperless organization?
Modern technologies – good for patient outcomes and our planet
Running a paperless organisation will have a positive effect on the environment.
Creating a paperless organisation will save a lot of physical space, as most records will be stored online instead of keeping paper files.
Apart from saving space, another benefit of a paperless organisation is that it will also have a significant effect on expenditure. Less space means less money spent on renting/maintaining that space.
Timesaving: You will not have to go through every patient record to find a file; with Salud, you can easily find what you are looking for with a few clicks.
Easy access to a patient record from anywhere.
Far greater data capture capability with automated consolidation from all areas and locations.
Investing in technologies allows organisations to provide treatment that is quicker, more accurate, and more comfortable for patients.
With Salud, you can instantly access an up-to-date, patient record for every patient, saving hours of admin time and removing the risk of misplaced, incomplete or lost patient data.
