Real-Time Data Is a Game Changer

Real-Time Data Is a Game Changer

Modern dentistry is demanding. Nowadays, owning a profitable dental organisation requires you to be more than a dentist.

To be successful, you need to run your organisation efficiently.

Implementing the right tools is the first step in optimizing operations and patient care. Number one on the list of tools should be a good Dental Management System, next to a dental dashboard.

One of the best things about using a dashboard is the fact that you can see cause and effect!

Not only visualize it but MEASURE it!

Salud Dashboards provide an easy to read visual display of key data, in real time. No more “running” reports.

Real-time data at your fingertips enables organisation wide monitoring and trend analysis for resource and patient care optimisation.

What is a dental dashboard?

A dental dashboard is a data visualisation tool that displays your business metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) in real time.

Salud Dashboards provide accurate real-time data to help you make decisions and changes that positively impact your company’s performance.

All data recorded in Salud can be easily extracted for further analysis. Data access can be limited to user groups and these user groups are controlled by permissions within Salud.

When it comes to business management, nothing beats real-time performance checks, balances and up-to-date progress evaluations. This is one more reason to forget spreadsheets and static reports which epically fail to meet these essential criteria.

Benefits of using Salud Dashboards

  • Increase clinic efficiency with real-time data
  • Save time with insightful and actionable data readily available
  • Improve employee motivation with immediate performance feedback
  • Improve patient care with more time focused on dentistry
  • Track trends for epidemiology studies

Our intuitive and easy-to-use dental software helps you to concentrate on patient care while Salud takes care of the rest.

Does your organization use automated appointment reminders?

Does your organization use automated appointment reminders?

Make missed appointments a thing of the past with SMS reminders.

Appointments reminders are a quick way of ensuring your customers won’t forget about you and their appointments.

With many advances in technology across all healthcare in the last few decades, the use of electronic reminders has become increasingly prevalent.

Text messages are a convenient mode of communication that is widely used and can effectively reach a large population.

The bottom line is that reducing the number of missed appointments affects the clinic’s revenue significantly.

Studies have shown that missed appointments drop by 25% to 50% when an office implements an automated appointment reminder system.

Not only does this impact your finances, but it also means your patients will come in regularly, helping them maintain their health.

Even the most organized people can forget about an appointment from time to time.

Sending an automated reminder, the day before can help them remember that they have somewhere to be. It reduces the risk of an empty chair.

Gone are the days when you could write the appointment time on a business card and expect excellent attendance rates if such a time ever existed. 

With the rest of the world going paperless, patients may no longer have a physical place to put the card to help them remember. It will likely end up under a pile of junk mail.

Missed appointments cost time and money.

Change can be a challenge. It often seems unfamiliar and intimidating, but it does not have to be.

If your dental office has been doing things manually or you are using a barebones automation system, the idea of making a procedural switch can seem like a giant leap.

Fortunately, Salud Dental was designed to look and feel just like everyday apps used in our personal lives. Making it an easy adoption for end-users.

Our software is intuitive and easy to use design allows dentists to be dentists, focusing on the patient.

Appointment reminders can be easily set up. Salud also tracks all DNA’s and cancellations, so you can manage and reduce.

The Salud Team offer a full implementation service, including training and assistance every step of the way.

You will have an effective system that provides a unique experience for you and your patients long into the future.

What to consider when marketing your dental services

What to consider when marketing your dental services

Marketing your dental services is essential to growing your business.

Like any other consumer choice market, dentistry is highly competitive.

Marketing your services is an essential and easy way to gain patients and build your brand.

It is important to consider your strategy first to ensure that messages come across in the right way and reflect your organization’s professional image.

Are you unsure where to start?

We have put together our top 5 things to consider when it comes to marketing your dental services.

1. Online reviews

According to Bright ideas (2019), ”84% of customers trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation, and a single negative review can cost a business around 30 customers.”

Unbiased reviews can have a colossal impact on consumer behavior.

It is clear to see that a businesses online reputation strongly affects whether a customer chooses to use a company, or not.

Bright ideas(2019) affirms that “The average consumer reads ten reviews before feeling able to trust a company.”

Make sure your business is accurately accessible online, allowing patients to easily post a review, and prospective patients to read unbiased reviews.

2. Patient testimonials & success stories

Patient testimonials are the key to assuring new patients that you are the right person to call, and they are a vital part of a successful marketing strategy.

Some ways you can add testimonials to your website:

  • Create a testimonial page and include all in one location.
  • Add a testimonial to each page of your website.  
  • Include patient before and after pictures with testimonials associated.


3. Utilize platforms best suited to your target market

For example, having a page on LinkedIn will establish your brand’s authority within the industry. A regularly updated Instagram page can engage potential patients.

Using keywords in your content is essential to help to self-promote the business. Your audience uses keywords when searching for something related to your brand.

According to the Search Engine Journal(2018),” keywords range from single words to complex phrases and are used to inform website content to increase relevant organic search traffic.”

When effectively-researched and optimized, keywords act as a conduit to connect your target audience with your website.

Include keywords across all your content, and regularly research and update your keyword list.

4. Internal communication

Good internal communication keeps your team informed, engaged, and marketing for you.

In a lot of ways, the primary role of internal communications is to help make your company culture manifest.

After all, each announcement, message, update, blog, article, etc. play a role in how your team interprets the cultural landscape of your organization: what it stands for, who it values, why its mission matters.

The company culture should be at the forefront of your strategy: built into the messaging, the tone, the back and forth discussion, the news that’s shared and omitted.

Your culture should guide your internal communications and vice versa.

Why? Because a robust, thriving company culture is essential for success and it directly reflects on external communication.

 5. Be authoritative within the sector

Showcase to your patients and potential patients that not only do you offer superior services but that you are also an expert in your field.

Regularly posting informative content on your website and social channels not only educates your audience but also proves your expertise.

You’ll gain the trust of potential patients and leverage your authority among your competition.

These are are just some of the areas you should consider when looking at your marketing strategy.

Remove the Barriers to Connectivity

Remove the Barriers to Connectivity

Advances in digital dentistry are happening fast.

Dental care providers worldwide are heavily investing in new innovative technologies. Everyone wants to have the latest technology which transforms manual, time-consuming tasks into the touch of a screen.

The expectation is that all this new technology will provide a smarter, easier way of working.

However, if all these new pieces of technology do not talk to each other, is it really smarter, or easier?

patient and dentist

Working smarter, but harder.

Separate pieces of technology and software that do not talk to each other result in dentists having to juggle different systems and pull together data often duplicated, to get a complete picture.

Tasks are duplicated, time is wasted, errors increase, users are frustrated, and inevitably patients suffer.

During an appointment, the focus should be on the patient, not on the machines around them.

Changing Dental Management Software

Changing Dental Management Software

Are you thinking of switching products but concerned about loosing data or a messy transition?

Advances in digital dentistry are happening fast and to avail of the true benefits you need to have a solid, future proof and constantly evolving dental management system at the centre.

If your current provider has not already evolved their product with current technologies, then you need to look at changing.

It is not as complicated as it may seem from the outset. You have far more to lose by staying with a provider that is not investing in a future proof product than the assumed cost to change.

The Salud product portfolio is constantly evolving and last year saw the release of Salud Dental, a web-based feature-rich solution with digital dentistry interoperability capabilities at its core.

Changing provider is not as complicated as it may seem from the outset.

Many of Salud’s customers have moved from other providers, taking their data with them.

The Salud team are experts in their field and have vast experience in migrating data from third-party systems. Experience includes; the migration of 1,000 – 1 Million Patients with 5-20 years of data, in various countries across 5 continents.

Salud’s standard migration process is:

  • Identify the data for migration. This is typically completed as part of a workshop with the customer.
    Some customers only require a basic patient record, while others will choose for all data to be migrated. The migration process is the same either way.

  • Following the workshop, the Salud team create a mapping document which states the areas for migration and the rules surrounding the data migration.

  • Extracting data – this is typically completed by the customer with the outgoing supplier.
    If this is not possible, the Salud team has extensive database expertise to proceed without the assistance of the third party supplier.

  • Data is converted to the Salud data model and imported.

The Salud team have decades of industry experience poured into their products, and Salud customers will tell you that their experience in implementation is the best available in the marketplace.
