Technology aids compliance with the new standards

The revised Standards for Dental Professionals means that a state-of-the-art practice management system becomes even more invaluable. With treatment details and images stored in each patient file, the software aids patient communication significantly, helping to ensure patients have a thorough understanding of any proposed treatment plan.

This in turn enhances the quality of patient consent obtained with recorded evidence showing how patients were informed, improving compliance to outcomes 1, 2 and 3 of the new Standards. Fully integrated software is also kept secure to protect confidentiality, with files only accessible by authorised professionals.

To ensure your practices meets all the regulations, you should make sure your team is working with the best technology. Carestream Dental provide an array of cutting-edge solutions, all fully integrated within the R4 Clinical+ Practice Management Software and also offer an online back-up service, to ensure important data is not lost in the case of a crisis.
