Kick Your Apps Inc. DDS GP

Kick Your Apps Inc.
DDS GP

Designed to improve case acceptance, DDS GP is the first member of the Dental Demo Suite package (orthodontic, oral/maxillofacial surgery and endodontic specialty apps will be added early in 2011, as well as a general package download). The interactive app for iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch features more than 200 demonstrations of diagnoses and procedures, in 6 languages, designed to help with patient understanding. Users can add to, delete from and sequence the plan from the app then e-mail customized treatment plans with pictures and video to remind patients what they saw and encourage case acceptance. Users soon will be able to add digital pictures directly to the app without any other interface, and an intraoral camera function also will be integrated into the app. Built on the Apple platform, the app provides free, automatic updates every 2 to 3 weeks.
