DentalForms System
Requirements

DentalForms is designed for security and ease of use. No data resides on the tablets that patients use. All data resides on our secure servers. All you need at your office are one or more Apple iPad tablets and a business class wireless network. If you have any questions about the system requirements for DentalForms give us a call and we’ll help you figure out if your office is ready to use DentalForms.

DentalForms is optimized for the iPad interface. DentalForms is designed to run on multiple tablets at the same time so that multiple patients and staff use the system, however it can be run on a single device that is shared. Each office can choose how many tablets they want to use to suit the workflow of their practice.

DentalForms requires customers to have Static IP address to maintain HIPAA Security. DentalForms servers are locked down to only answer to the network addresses of paying customers as part of our multi layered security plan.

Best Practices for Business Tablet use

  • Use Guided Access Mode to lock the iPads down when running DentalForms. We’ll show you how to do this as part of the onboarding process.
  • Have a charging plan! Make it somebody’s responsibility to plug the tablets in every night as well as any time they are not being used by patients or staff.
  • Consider having some electrical outlets installed that have built in USB charging.
  • Have antibacterial screen wipes handy to keep the screens clean
