The recent figures show that nearly 10% of all dental treatment is an urgent appointment. But what happens to patients when their dentist isn't available to deliver advice? There is a large gap in patients accessing dental care out of hours, and the Tooth Fairy app helps fill this important void.
We are aware that 4 million patients annually put off seeing the dentist due to time constraints, including those wanting braces. Hence the Tooth Fairy app was developed to connect patients to a dentist -on demand.
With our technology, we connect patients to dentists to consult and review their braces progress. Currently, patients have to come to see a dentist physically to show them the progress of their braces. Our app allows patients to still see a dentist, but without having to take any time off work & lose earnings, as well as incur expensive travel costs.
Learn about how it works, start to finish below.
How does it work?
Submit images of your mouth, and one of our dentists will review them. We can then tell you if you would be suitable for our premium aligners.
We will send you a treatment plan, with information about the treatment and how it works. All of this is free and involves no deposit.
1. Free e-Consult
2. Measure Up
If you wish to proceed then we will ask you to come to one of our clinics for an assessment. There is a deposit of £55 for this, but it comes off your final cost of treatment if you go ahead.
Unlike other providers, one of our own dentists will conduct a full exam and take professional measurements. We do not ask you to take impressions via DIY kits, as this can result in inaccuracies and in turn ill-fitting aligners. This can result in poor treatment.
3. Stress Free Straightening
You will then receive a 3D preview of your smile and once approved we will send out your aligners. You will be allocated your own personal dentist, who will monitor your treatment at each step and review tooth movement through our mobile app.
Unlike other providers, there is no need to cut out the dentist from your treatment. We ensure you get the same professional guidance and care.
Reinventing Dental Care
Dental Check up
Visit Physically / Send Images
Submit images through our platform and we will tell you within days if you are eligible for our premium aligners
Have a discussion with dentists of your suitability. This is through visiting them in practice / online.
Some providers ask you to send them reports of a check up you have done elsewhere with other dentists. This can be unreliable and may need repeating.
Some providers ask you to send in impressions yourself. This can result in inaccurate measurements and aligners that do not fit properly. Repeating this step is common.
Reviews are conducted either in person, which results in time off work and travel costs, or they are being done through images with a delay in reviews.
Images are then reviewed hours or days later. Repeat images may be required if the views are not revealing of your progress.
Physical reviews need to occur monthly, with costs adding up and additional loss of time and earnings.
Drop into one of our clinics for a full dental exam. We will personally measure your mouth for aligners using our professional skills and check for any gum disease of cavities first.
We will review your progress through our video calling technology. We can monitor your progress in three dimensions and your dentist will discuss treatment with you personally. Our app allows appointments to be arranged around your schedule.
Unlike us, other systems that cut the dentist out of your care do not utilise the power of teeth attachments or professional space creation. We ensure a professional dentist is always at hand for a physical appointment, at no extra charge. That means if a dentist needs to see your mouth physically to make sure you get your perfect result, then we use our in house dentists to make sure this happens.
