Salud – Celebrating the past, embracing the future

Salud – Celebrating the past, embracing the future

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Salud. It is also the year where the world continues to navigate a global health crisis.

While it’s not a time for physical celebration, it is still essential for us to reflect on the past, and more importantly, to focus on the future.

Two-Ten health, the company behind Salud, was founded in 1995 when Carl Moynihan, CEO and Founder, worked on the development of an electronic data-recording system as part of Dublin Dental University Hospital’s modernization scheme.

Reflecting on the rich history of this company, over the last 25 years Salud has evolved from a basic business management tool to a connected health solution which connects technology, disciplines, people, and facilitates a global community for research and sharing best practice.

Salud is a leading dental management solution for world-renowned Dental Hospitals and Universities.

Key to its worldwide success is an incredibly talented team with decades of experience, industry knowledge and a passion for a common goal.

Today, we have installations dotted across 5 continents, supporting clients in multiple languages as Salud helps manage millions of patient appointments each year.

Salud is continuously evolving to meet and exceed the ever-changing industry needs and ensure a future proof solution for all customers.

2019 saw the release of Salud Dental, the latest web-based application in the Salud product offering. The market reaction has been very positive, and this year will see more clients move across.

The secret to success is never stopping learning and innovating.” Carl Moynihan, CEO.

Significant trends in dentistry

The last 25 years has seen many improvements in dentistry, from the advancements in technology to the warm and inviting atmosphere of the dental rooms. Dentistry has changed to become more and more patient-focused in terms of both comfort and convenience.

These developments also mean dentists can provide more accurate diagnoses and focus on preventative care rather than reacting to issues, thus saving the business time and money down the line. And of course, the new technology means quicker and more efficient treatment, resulting in improved oral healthcare worldwide.

The future

The past twenty years have demonstrated rapid growth in dental technology and even more rapid development of dental technologies.

We’re always looking to improve our current service, introduce new features and integrate with new technologies.

By simple extrapolation, the future is bright for dental professionals. It is an exciting time for Salud to be part of it.

We will continue dedicating ourselves to our mission of providing world class solutions, training, implementation and support.

Our team’s common goal is to provide solutions that help dental professionals to reach their full potential, and in doing so helps patients worldwide to achieve good oral health – if so, we’ve accomplished our mission.

The unexpected passing of our Chairman David Phillips

It is with profound sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our Chairman David Phillips following a short illness.

David joined Two-Ten Health in the early 2000s and became deeply involved in the development of Salud. As Chairman, he led the Board in embarking on an exciting vision for healthcare software.

Bringing a wealth of knowledge, a true passion for dentistry, and a wonderful sense of humour, he was an invaluable member of the team.

We are incredibly grateful for his tremendous dedication and contribution to the company’s development.

Over his lifetime he was truly generous with both his support and time to many people and an excellent and loyal friend.

About David:

David Phillips worked in general dental practice for 16 years, heading an extensive group practice in Cardiff, Wales. He joined the Medical Protection Society in 1981, becoming head of its Dental Division, and then-Secretary and Dental Director of its new dental division Dental Protection, from which he retired in 1999.

David lectured internationally on healthcare risk management. He was a specialist adviser to the House of Commons Health Select Committee and a medico-legal adviser to the World Health Organisation. He was also a lay member of the General Osteopathic Council.

He was Chairman of Denplan, the UK’s largest provider of dental payment plans, and Chairman of Howden Medical and Dental Insurance providing indemnity insurance for medical and dental practitioners.

David was an elected member of the General Dental Council (GDC) in the UK and Chairman of the ‘Fitness to Practice Policy’ within the GDC.

He was a former Chairman of the Wellhouse NHS Trust (1995-2000), and former non-executive director (1997-2000) and Chairman (2000-2002) of Dencare Ltd. After Dencare was taken over by Oasis PLC in 2003 David became Chairman of Oasis Dental Care Ltd.

In 1994 he was awarded an OBE for his services to dentistry.

The contributions he made to Salud cannot be measured, and his impact will be felt forever.

On behalf of our management team and employees, we extend our deepest condolences to his family.
