‘On-the-go’ app helps patients with dental phobias

by Guy Hiscott

A new app – Dental Republik – provides dental phobic patients with on-the-go access to tailored answers from professional dentists. 

Available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, Dental Republik connects patients with qualified dentists to resolve their dental queries.

Patients are able to use a variety of pre-loaded questions or ask their own, as well as upload supporting materials such as images or X-rays to highlight or block out information.

The query is then put to Dental Republik’s network of experienced dentists who use their knowledge and expertise to respond to the user’s query.

The founding team commented: ‘By providing patients with mobile access to information from professional, qualified dentists, we aim to improve access for those who are unable to visit a dentist or who have anxieties about dental care, in turn reducing the rate of overtreatment, and promoting prevention over cure.

‘We’re already starting to build a fantastic network of dental professionals from across the world, but we’d like to invite more dentists to enjoy the benefits of answering questions via the Dental Republik platform.

‘Dentists are required to be qualified and registered with their governing body and to be in good standing order to be allowed access to the platform. In return, they are able to answer as many or as few questions as they like, earning from home with a generous fixed payment per case.’

The app is free to download, and each submission is charged depending on the speed of the response users receive.
