The world is influenced by modern innovative technology. New benefit rich tools and devices are being released regularly and quickly become part of our everyday lives. With that digital technology has quickly become a necessity in every industry.
The healthcare industry has benefited from the advancement of sophisticated software solutions which allow the seamless flow of information and improved patient care worldwide.
The dental management system is the backbone of a patient’s oral health information. Dental organisations need an easy to use and effective solution that can make it easier to record and track patient’s information, diagnosis and treatment plans.
A dental system automatically consolidates the recorded patient information, streamlines the workflow and allows dental practitioners to make data driven decisions quickly.
A complete dental system needs to contain a wide range of functionality, such as: intuitive charting and treatment planning, seamless integrations with other technologies, and comprehensive dental management functionality to provide a totally digital workflow.
No two dental care providers are the same, and so neither should their dental software. Salud is a highly configurable solution, allowing each organisation to tailor it to their specific workflows.
The benefits of implementing a dental system are vast:
Accurate patient data
Improved patient care
Instant access to patient files
Enhanced operational efficiency
Enhanced student experience
Each dental organization is different and has different needs and requirements. A good dental system needs to be flexible and streamline the process.
The implementation of a good dental management system is as important as the flexibility if the product itself. We have a highly experienced team who have worked with customers across 5 continents in the implementation of Salud. We offer a full implementation service to ensure a smooth transition, and our Salud experts support you into the future.

Dental professionals have a number of challenges when it comes to workflow management.
The EDR is rapidly becoming an essential component for dental organisations as it has the potential to streamline their workflow to allow improved quality care, reduced errors, and lower administrative costs.
What is an EDR?
An Electronic Dental Record, provides tools for dentists and related health professionals to manage their patients and day-to-day operations. The capabilities of a good EDR with solid Dental Management functionality can include:
appointment scheduling, document storage, dental charting, patient notes, consents, treatment plans, billing, and an extensive list of features that you can check with our team.
It is notorious that a paper record is incapable of supplying a dental professional with all the patient information they need.
With the use of an EDR, users can quickly access a patient’s updated dental history and any pre-existing medical condition. Allowing more assessments in less time.
Also, an EDR system cuts down on the cost of paper and space needed for physical files.
With decades of industry knowledge, we’re the best in the business.

Dental care providers worldwide are heavily investing in new innovative technologies. Everyone wants to have the latest technology which transforms manual, time-consuming tasks into the touch of a screen.
The expectation is that all this new technology will provide a smarter, easier way of working.
However, if all these new pieces of technology do not talk to each other, is it really smarter, or easier?
Working smarter, but harder.
Separate pieces of technology and software that do not talk to each other result in dentists having to juggle different systems and pull together data often duplicated, to get a complete picture.
Tasks are duplicated, time is wasted, errors increase, users are frustrated, and inevitably patients suffer.
During an appointment, the focus should be on the patient, not on the machines around them.
Working smarter, not harder.
A fully integrated workflow using a connected health solution removes these barriers. It allows the technology to make the dentists’ job easier, fun, and more profitable, while most importantly, improving patient care.
Advances in digital dentistry are happening fast. To avail of the true benefits, you need to have a robust, future proof, and constantly evolving dental management solution at the centre.
Salud is a leading dental management solution.
Salud is an open and flexible product which can be integrated into the existing services using its own API. Salud’s vision is to remove the barriers to connectivity, allowing the technology to provide both better outcomes and profits.
Customers who choose to integrate all systems in use can experience a seamlessly integrated environment with a streamlined workflow.
Duplicate data entry is removed. Time is saved, and errors are reduced.

The impact of coronavirus on Dental Practitioners: how to protect yourself and your patients?
The new strain of coronavirus which originated in China last December continues to cause chaos worldwide. As dental practitioners, it is important that your organisation remains vigilant to protect patients and dental practitioners.
What measures can dental practitioners take to prevent cross infection?
How does the coronavirus spread?
Investigations are ongoing as to how 2019-nCoV spreads. However, it is presently thought to be passed on when an infected person coughs or sneezes via respiratory droplets, which end up in the lungs of people in the vicinity, like how the flu spreads. Investigations into whether infection can occur from contact with an object, such as touching something that is infected and then touching your mouth or nose, are continuing.
What can dental practitioners do to prevent cross infection?
First, revise risk assessment procedures with the entire practice team. The first step to limiting infection in the practice is to try to prevent it from entering in the first place. In the case that a patient presents with symptoms, on arrival the patient should be requested to reschedule their appointment.
As practitioners, there are measures that you can take and can advise your patients to follow to protect against the coronavirus, as well as flu. Here are some points to remember:
Wash your hands: Wash hands for at least 20 seconds, or use an alcohol-based rub, especially before eating or after coughing or sneezing.
Keep your distance: As stated, viruses spread via respiratory droplets, so maintain a distance of at least 3 feet from people who have a cough or fever.
Avoid contact with eyes, nose, and mouth: Your hands touch many objects, and you could end up transferring the virus to yourself.
Seek medical care: Get help early if you are symptomatic and tell your medical practitioner if you have been in contact with anyone who has traveled to China.
Stay home: If you experience symptoms, stay home and rest until you are fully recovered. Do not come to work and infect your colleagues.
Disinfect surfaces: Clean objects and surfaces thoroughly that are frequently touched by people in the workplace. First, the surface must be cleaned, and then a second wipe is used to disinfect.
Do not be afraid to question patients before they enter the practice. It is, after all, a public health issue.
Vigilance, not panic, is the key to keeping viruses at bay.
