  • About This Course

This is a four part series of webinars exploring the future of digital dentistry and the role of technology for citizens, patients and the workforce. During this series we discuss apps and devices that patients might use, the technology that might be available to clinicians and the dental team, the future technologies that might change the way we work and the role of big data in all its forms.

During this first recorded webinar we explore the role of patient and citizen facing technology. We discuss chatbots, apps, and what the role is of decision support technology. We also consider the role of novel technology such as cameras, brushes and other gadgets that may now exist. We explore direct booking into health services and whether it works in dentistry.

  • To identify how apps are evaluated and safe sources of citizen & professional facing apps or tech
  • To explore the role of health apps in behaviour change and direct access to services
  • To define online consultations, the conditions for use and implications for dentistry
