How secure is our data with Dentally?

Security is at the core of Dentally’s design and  is delivered in two parts. Firstly, in how we support you and advise on what you can do in terms of your practice and your team through specific privacy features. And secondly, in how we encrypt your information within our platform to give you complete peace of mind. Find details of our user security here and platform security here.

What makes Dentally different?

First of all we are cloud-based, giving you greater flexibility to run your practice management software.  Importantly Dentally for private practices is built to help you reduce costs while growing your business and prioritising patient care. It’s flexible, scalable, and reporting is seamless. 

What happens if the internet goes down?

In the rare case that you lose your internet connection, you can still use Dentally.  A data hotspot on your mobile phone using a 3G/4G data connection or a back-up router which can run on a SIM card will be more than sufficient to run the software over a mobile connection. Dentally does not require a large amount of data to allow you to run your practice.

Can I manage my NHS contracts easily with Dentally?

Submitting, managing and reporting on your NHS work is simple with Dentally. NHS work is claimed directly from the patient chart with just a few clicks when you complete the plan and feedback on your claims is received the next day. Manage the status of your claims, and track your awarded and forecasted UDAs with real time reporting so you can keep on top of your NHS contracts.  Read about NHS Scotland here and NHS England and Wales here.
