Shared by Amber • February 26, 2024

Not only is Apple Pay now available as a new payment option for your patients through the Dentally Portal checkout process!

We have also worked on enhancing and optimising the entire checkout experience, ensuring a seamless, efficient, and user-friendly platform for patients and practices alike.

Patients accessing Dentally Portal can now enjoy the convenience of Apple Pay for settling outstanding balances and paying appointment deposits. This addition offers a swift, secure, and hassle-free payment method right at their fingertips.

By incorporating Apple Pay, Dentally aims to streamline transactions and encourage more patients to book appointments conveniently through their mobile devices. What's more, Dentally offers full transparency and affordability as Stripe, our trusted payment processing partner, guarantees no additional charges for payments made via Apple Pay.

Whilst working on adding Apple Pay to our payment methods, we have collaborated with Stripe to implement a series of optimisations to the entire checkout process. These enhancements are meticulously crafted in the background of our app to simplify payment procedures, for a more intuitive and secure experience for patients.

With the introduction of a dedicated secure checkout domain, checkout.portal.dental, patients are seamlessly directed during checkout to a safe and reliable payment environment, upholding the highest standards for data protection and security throughout every transaction.

Patients can expect nothing short of excellence in their dental care journey when you use Dentally. Please reach out to Ellie Bot and the support team with any questions you may have.

New Dentally Portal URL for Improved Customer Experience and Reinforced Trust

Simon avatar
Shared by Simon • February 22, 2024

Our latest enhancement to Dentally Portal is coming soon!

We want to introduce you to our new, industry-specific URL: portal.dental

This transition is part of our ongoing commitment and dedication to enhancing the overall customer experience and solidifying trust in our online dental solutions. Practices already using Dentally Portal do not need to do anything to receive the benefits of this update once it goes live. Let's delve a little deeper into a few of the key features of this URL transition:

  • Industry-Specific URL: We wanted to make Dentally Portal instantly recognisable not only by our customers but also among your own patients. By introducing a URL specifically tailored to the dental industry, we can instil confidence in your patients when it comes to utilising the online tools accessible to them.
  • Enhanced SMS Communication: The adoption of the shorter portal.dental URL promises to streamline communication channels, particularly through SMS. The reduced length of URLs allows for more concise and informative messages, ultimately enhancing the overall patient experience with Dentally's services.
  • Seamless Redirection: To ensure a smooth transition, visitors attempting to access the previous Dentr.net website will be automatically redirected to the new portal.dental URL for the next year. This seamless redirection mitigates any inconvenience or disruption for customers, ensuring uninterrupted access to Dentally Portal.

This update aligns with our mission to create a more secure, efficient, and patient-focused online environment. By prioritising enhanced communication and user-centric solutions, Dentally can continue to set a high standard in dental healthcare technology.

Once this update goes live, it will happen automatically in the background and requires no additional action from you at the practice.

Shared by DentallyBot • January 10, 2024

Dentally Visions’ highly anticipated offline mode is now available!

This new feature allows dental professionals to continue to take patient images offline, giving you continuous access to crucial diagnostic tools even in times when internet connectivity is limited or unavailable. Visit our help centre for instructions on how to use Offline Mode with Dentally Vision.

This innovation not only helps enhance the flexibility of your daily workflows in surgery but also addresses challenges faced in remote areas or during emergency situations where a stable internet connection may not be readily available.

One of the key advantages of Dentally Vision's offline mode is its ability to sync seamlessly with the main Dentally app once internet access is restored.

Dentists can now enjoy the benefits of a truly flexible imaging solution, allowing you to provide top-notch care in diverse circumstances without compromising on the quality of care or the accessibility of the tools at your fingertips.

Dentally Vision's offline mode sets the standard of dental imaging, providing an invaluable asset for practitioners who wish to deliver exceptional patient care in any environment.

New Click to Clear: Dentally's quick deletion feature for charting bliss!

DentallyBot avatar
Shared by DentallyBot • January 08, 2024

Say goodbye to the old days of having to click through base chart history or the treatment plan to delete an item.

With swifter charting in mind, you can now effortlessly delete a charted or base charted item with click-to-clear. Simply select the item in question, hover over it on the chart and click again to clear it.

The process is designed for seamless use. For unchanged or base-charted items, the deletion happens instantly with a click. If there have been changes since the item was charted, a confirmation prompt ensures no accidents happen, especially if notes have been added!

Items marked as complete will not be able to be removed in this way, the item would need to be marked as incomplete first before the deletion is possible. Giving you control over your charting process without the ability to undo work that has been carried out.

Rest assured, all charting changes, from initial recording to subsequent deletion, are diligently documented in the Patient Audit, ensuring transparency and accountability as always.

Experience the simplicity of Dentally's click-to-clear deletion tool today! Discover more about charting on our help centre here.

Dentally's 2023 Round-up – Recapping another year ready for 2024 🎉

Amber avatar
Shared by Amber • December 21, 2023

As we bid farewell to 2023, and prepare to welcome in the new year – we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the past 12 months.

In 2023 the team at Dentally, have continued to deliver brand new features as well as hundreds of enhancements across your software – so lets just take a quick look back at some of the notable highlights.

Starting at the beginning, back in early 2023 we released the... Clinical history side panel!

Your feedback helped us develop and implement this new feature. Allowing you to see the patient's complete treatment history no matter where you are on the patients record. Empowering users to make informed decisions and deliver the best possible care without the hassle of switching screens.

A big one for many of our practices was the introduction of... Task Notifications

Now, staying on top of your tasks is easier than ever, with the notification icon front and centre on every user's account. This enhancement is a testament to how valuable your feedback is to help make Dentally intuitive and efficient across every area of your practice.

Half-way through 2023 we saw the release of Dentally Vision!

vision

This product has been a game-changer in the world of X-rays and imaging! Vision’s cutting-edge features, such as offline mode open new possibilities for streamlined workflows inside surgery, helping you save time whilst still delivering an exceptional patient experience.

With Dentally Vision you can say goodbye to limitations and hello to a future where your practice can reach its full potential.

We saw some big changes to Dentally Portal this year as well.

With efficiency at the forefront of our minds, our Dentally Portal saw a complete overhaul. We revamped the appearance and functionality, making it easier than ever to activate, navigate and use.

The Task Reminders feature in Dentally Portal takes care of the monotonous task of chasing forms. With its automatic messaging system, your patients can sign them electronically from home instead. Resulting in maximum impact with minimal effort from both you and your patients.

Performance charts let you keep track of how your patient are interacting with your online signing and online booking features, offering you insights that empower you to make informed decisions and drive your practice's success. All accessed directly from your Dentally Portal manage app.

More recently updates have been made to your Treatment Planning experience.

Phase 1 of these changes saw a redesign to our user interface, making button easier to find and giving your chart a more intuitive feel. Phase 2 sees some new feature introduced to help make your lives slightly easier when creating treatment plans.

The improvements made so far are just the beginning – there's more in store for 2024! Stay tuned as we shape the future of treatment planning to help support treatment acceptance.

And now as we look ahead to the new year, we also say Happy Birthday to us! 2024 marks Dentally's 10th anniversary, we have seen a whole decade of innovation, growth, and, most importantly, your unwavering support and feedback.

To celebrate this milestone, we have a series of exclusive offers lined up for you throughout the next 12 months! Keep an eye out for the present emoji 🎁 within your Dentally app – it's your key to unlocking exclusive deals and surprises throughout our anniversary year.

As we close the book on 2023, we want to express our gratitude for being part of creating the future in practice with Dentally. The last 10 years have been incredible, and we can't wait to make 2024 our biggest and most memorable year yet.

Thank you for your trust, feedback, and support, here's to another decade of Dentally excellence and the exciting adventures that lie ahead! 🥳✨
