Give your patients the first evidence based risk report in private dentistry in the UK
The new Denplan PreViser Patient Assessment (DEPPA) measures patients’ oral health while also helping them understand their individual future risk of Periodontal disease, caries, tooth wear and mouth cancer.
DEPPA is exclusive to member dentists and available at no additional cost to Denplan Excel dentists. For those not currently Excel certified, unlimited use of DEPPA can be yours for just £100 per month (inc VAT) for up to two dentists in a practice (£150 per month for three or four dentists). Signing up takes just minutes and DEPPA can add value to you and your patients in the following ways:
- Supporting behaviour change by providing colour-coded, evidence-based biofeedback to patients about their current oral health status and future disease risk.
- Assisting the dental team in planning care and monitoring the progress of individual patients
- Making it possible for the dental team to clinically audit the health status and disease risk status of their whole adult patient base against the benchmark of all other DEPPA users.
- Providing more evidence-based guidance on categorising patients’ fees
What do our dentists think?
“It’s proving very popular with my patients. An unexpected benefit has been treatment uptake by fee per item patients who have undergone the DEPPA assessment. I’m sure DEPPA is going to increase revenue at the practice”. Dr S A Clavell-Bate
“It is all going well and we have managed to complete a DEPPA within the 15 minutes allocated to a routine examination, with good feedback from our patients”. Dr N Chappell
“DEPPA provides a sleek and elegant solution to some of the needs within general dental practice - without cumbersome paperwork or ‘clunky’ outdated and underdeveloped software. Patients have been very appreciative of the approach and it’s opened dialogue in ways none of us had expected”. Dr M Colwell
"What I really like about the DEPPA is that it brings the three elements of RISK, Oral Health Score and Denplan category all together." - Steve, Denplan Excel dentist
"It is all going well and we have managed to complete a DEPPA within the 15 minutes allocated to a routine examination, with good feedback from our patients. We have also managed to import the pdf reports into our Exact dental software in the 'contacts' section so that they are saved to the patients record and can be viewed or reprinted in chronological order at any time in the future or for audit/CQC/practice inspection." Neil, Denplan Excel dentist
"The first is DEPPA. Downloading Google Chrome worked a treat, I can now complete the information on line and print a copy and save a PDF. I find it very comforting to use a series of information to collate an evidence based report on risk and then make recommendations based on this rather than just using 'gut feeling'. I have completed my first 10-20 examinations with it and am already finding patients where I have missed that they are high caries/perio risk and have altered fluoride/hygiene/x-ray intervals accordingly and it is proving very popular with my patients." Simon, Denplan Excel Dentist
What our patients say:
"I am entirely satisfied with the service I receive from my dentist. It is very reassuring to know that he has carried out such a detailed assessment and made me fully aware of my dental health and any preventative action that could be taken for the future." - Felicity, Denplan Excel patient
"I feel very confident that the DEPPA process is extremely important in keeping a close guard on my oral health. It is not only a necessary process but a convenient one too as it's done during a routine visit." - Heather, Denplan Excel patient
“At my check-up this morning my dentist assessed my oral health with the new online tool, DEPPA. There were a lot of questions to answer but once we had finished the report came up really quickly. I found it very well worded so that anybody would be able to read and understand it. The visuals of the red and green were really good and helped me understand the condition my teeth were in and what I needed to do to maintain them. It was nice to know that this is provided for Denplan patients and it gives us a clear idea of what we can do to help ourselves keep dentally fit. I also found it helped me chat with my dentist about my oral health. I think it would be ideal for people who find it uncomfortable talking with their dentists (especially if their teeth weren’t that good). I am pretty good at looking after my teeth but I have the report and will be able to refer to it now and again just to remind myself!” -Joanna, Denplan patient
"I found this a delightful experience and it will really help keep me on track with my dental health in-between visits to the dentist and hygienist." - Catherine, Denplan Excel patient
"My Dentist was very professional and explained things clearly to me. The DEPPA literature I received helped me understand how to best look after my teeth." - Angela, Denplan Excel patient
"Made me think more about my teeth!" - Jerry, Denplan Excel patient
