The Dental Defence Union (DDU) has today launched its new app.
The app is available for all members to download on their iPhone, iPad, Android phone and Android tablet via the Apple and Google app stores.
The new app allows DDU members to access expert dentolegal advice 24/7 by enabling them to, customise their news feeds so they receive content that is of interest and relevance to them, get assistance by searching frequently asked questions and scour the DDU’s case studies, guides and articles, including the DDU Journal, at a time and place that is convenient to them.
John Makin, head of the DDU, said: ‘We are pleased to be able to offer our members guidance, advice and professional development through our new app.
‘Dentists have ever increasing workloads and consequently, it was imperative that we created an app that was a convenient and practical way for members to access advice and support whilst on-the-go.’
Having recently surveyed members’ technology use, the DDU found that 80% of dental members would use a DDU app.
The survey also found that members aged 25-34 years were most likely to use a dental related app for work (75.4%).
