Nowadays, stomatology is submitted to an intense informatisation on every level. New diagnosis and treatment technologies are based, completely or for the most part, on information systems. Communication and data management processes are no exception. Moreover, this area is one of the most computerised to the point where a dentist’s activity cannot be done without this technology. Patient records and reports, where the case, are digital.
The DENTALOG program is a relevant example. This complex application allows very good activity management, applying to several levels: data collecting, inluding imaging data, accessing data selectively by one or more users, oportunity changes, financial data evidence, appointments and collecting data for statistical and scientifical purposes. The fact that one application comprises all these features is remarkable and indispensable for a modern dental practice. I would add that the software is user-friendly and operating it does not require extensive knowledge of computer use. I believe that such an application is a necessity and that implementing it in the activity of a dental practice brings an undeniable benefit.
