How can Chairsyde reduce my risk as a Dental Protection Member?

Dental Protection believe Chairsyde has the potential to reduce a dentist’s risk of receiving a claim, case, or complaint through:
o Using the animations to enhance communication with patients, helping them to understand their diagnosis and treatment options better than verbal communication alone.
o Dental Protection believe by using the animations to aid discussion with patients that they are likely to feel more informed and therefore more comfortable in making a decision and providing consent.
o Chairsyde also tracks the consultations including time and date stamped records of visuals shown to a patient, patient consent, and notes.
o Chairsyde enables dentists to email the consultation notes to patients and for them to revisit the visuals shown at the appointments. If a patient opens the email, reads the notes, or accesses the visuals again, this too is time and date stamped.
o Chairsyde also provides patients with the ability to contact their dentist directly with any questions – the ability to do this has the potential to support members in a case or claim.
It is important to note that showing the visuals provided on Chairsyde must be accompanied with the appropriate verbal communication regarding the diagnosis and treatment options.

Is Chairsyde GDPR Compliant?

We’ve made sure that Chairsyde is GDPR compliant making it a worry-free solution for Dentists across the UK.

What practice management softwares do you currently integrate with?

We’re working with the leading practice management softwares and currently have a light integration with EXact and SfD (Systems for Dentist). You need to have a practice account to integrate.

How do I store tracking content in my practice management system?
