7 Reasons Why Patients Need the Dentist’s App

Once a patient downloads your mobile app, they’ll wonder how they ever received dental care without it. You’re giving them the most convenient method of communication available to stay connected with your office and manage their dental hygiene. If you’re wondering why your practice should develop an app, let me tell you why your patients already need your app.


1. It’s free. Patients literally have nothing to lose by downloading the app, which offers immediate dental emergency advice and treatment education.

2. Everything is kept in one place. The app is an all-in-one resource for the office’s most important information. No more wasted time searching for social media pages, driving directions, or a phone number.

3. Book appointments remotely. Patients can simply select what day they are available and the office will confirm an appointment slot. Quick and simple.

4. Get round-the-clock care. No matter what time of day it is, patients can always get feedback on dental emergencies via the app. They can even contact the dentist’s emergency line after hours, along with sending a picture of the problem for a remote evaluation.

5. Pay the bill without visiting the office, or waiting for a check to arrive and clear. Patients can pay any amount to the dentist to be applied to their bill immediately- with just a few swipes of the screen. They can also set up recurring billing to pay off larger sums over a period of time.

6. Patients will get the best results from their treatments when they refer to the app’s treatment educator. Pre- and post- op information cannot be forgotten when it’s at the fingertips.

7. The app keeps things simple. No matter what the patient needs, there’s a module to help them get where they’re going… literally! There’s even GPS!
