eDental payment and approval modernisation was introduced for NHS dentistry in Scotland to dental and orthodontic services to the national eHealth strategies.

This delivers a range of improvements around clinical decision-making, patient and practitioner experience, risk management, operational efficiency and financial governance.

The streamlined and improved processes will reduce errors, increase data quality where possible and provide electronic communications, including the ability to upload electronic attachments, such as radiographs.

Updates on the project can be found in our latest update.
