Emotional dentistry – presenting treatment options and progress to your patient

Emotional dentistry – presenting treatment options and progress to your patient

For any dental treatment, the dialogue between the professional and the patient is decisive to find the most appropriate treatment and achieve the best result.

Emotional dentistry focuses on establishing effective and beneficial communication for both parties, which results in greater patient satisfaction. Some of the pillars of this technique is the practice of active listening, and patient participation.

Salud Dental Management System has features to assist patients in seeing and understanding the treatment options and prices offered, and It also provides the patient and dental professional an overview of the treatment plan progress.

Emotion is key – building connections with patients

Practising emotional intelligence in a dental organisation is increasingly necessary. Today, patients are looking for professionals who can listen to their needs and present practical solutions to their problems. The patients want to be fully informed and equipped to make decisions about their treatment.

Here are some tips for building a good connection with your patients:

Sustainability is growing and making moves in dentistry

Sustainability is growing and making moves in dentistry

The word “sustainability” is often thrown around, but what does it mean? Put simply, sustainability is all about being responsible for natural resources.

In dentistry, sustainability means that waste must be handled in the most environmentally friendly way possible.

Reducing the amount of waste produced can be tricky in the healthcare sector, but it is still possible.

Auditing how much waste is thrown away regularly should give your organisation an idea of items that are being overbought.

Additionally, switching to recyclable and compostable items that can break down naturally helps to reduce the amount of waste that is produced.

Reducing the amount of paper can also have a huge impact.

Have you already thought about the advantages of a paperless organization?

Modern technologies – good for patient outcomes and our planet

  • Running a paperless organisation will have a positive effect on the environment.

  • Creating a paperless organisation will save a lot of physical space, as most records will be stored online instead of keeping paper files.

  • Apart from saving space, another benefit of a paperless organisation is that it will also have a significant effect on expenditure.
    Less space means less money spent on renting/maintaining that space.

  • Timesaving: You will not have to go through every patient record to find a file; with Salud, you can easily find what you are looking for with a few clicks.

  • Easy access to a patient record from anywhere.

  • Far greater data capture capability with automated consolidation from all areas and locations.


Investing in technologies allows organisations to provide treatment that is quicker, more accurate, and more comfortable for patients.

With Salud, you can instantly access an up-to-date, patient record for every patient, saving hours of admin time and removing the risk of misplaced, incomplete or lost patient data.

Salud dental management software has several benefits that can increase efficiency. The software provides tools to facilitate core functions such as charting, billing, and administration.

These functions are immediately available to all departments, enabling coordination from all area’s enterprise-wide.

All dental specialities are catered for too with specialised charts which can be switched on or off depending on your organisation’s requirements.

The primary goal of Salud is to capture patient care information systematically and securely. 

Our solution allows professionals to reduce costs and time associated with physical file management and data entry; it reduces errors and allows the dental professional to focus on what matters – the patient.

Salud can help dental organizations streamline, automate, and manage data while the dentist can focus on the patient.

With easy patient registration, a flexible appointment system and easy access to patient records from anywhere, Salud ensure easy adoption by all end users.

EDR adoption in a Dental Organisation

EDR adoption in a Dental Organisation

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.
