To help dental practices professionalise the way they manage their patients' anxiety, FEMDA has developed a suite of tools under the ConfiDents brand. These innovative solutions provide practices and patients help in assessing, treating and managing a patient's dental anxiety. FEMDA also maintains the patient facing Confidents website.
ConfiDents Assessment App
The ConfiDents Assessment App enables a practice to collect anxiety information across all of its patients. By measuring both a patient's generalised level of dental anxiety and their specific worries and concerns a practice can start to manage a patients dental anxiety more effectively. The Confidents Assessment App is freely available for dental practices.
ConfiDents Treatment App
The ConfiDents Treatment App is an innovative smartphone app that provides a comprehensive treatment plan to help patients gain more control over their anxiety. It measures a patients level of dental anxiety and provides innovative digital treatment designed by the UK's leading experts in dental anxiety.
The ConfiDents Treatment app uses the patient's anxiety assessment to tailor a personalised cognitive therapy plan which addresses the patient's specific worries and concerns. It provides both self help advice on anxiety reducing techniques and an innovative graded exposure plan designed to increase a patient's feeling of control. The Treatment App is linked to the ConfiDents Dashboard.
The ConfiDents Dashboard is a web based application linked to the ConfiDents Treatment app. The practice can access data that highlights the level of dental anxiety across the practice, what specific concerns patients have and the treatments they are using to help manage their concerns. In addition the dashboard provides feedback on what areas of anxiety management are working well and if any need to be improved.
