Dental Decide - Point of Care Patient Education for Healthcare Professionals by Orca Health (formerly Orca MD)

This version of DentalDecide combines a new design with access to surgical videos and enables you to Draw / Annotate images and Send / Prescribe Digital Handouts (app content) to your patients.

DentalDecide is free for personal use only.

Generate your own ‘Prescribable’ Digital Handouts, using photo or video capture. All Digital Handouts you Send to your patients will be hosted on HIPAA-secure servers by Orca.

This will allow you to take pictures and videos of your patient or patient’s medical imagery (MRIs, x-rays, etc.), Draw on those images and add them to the Digital Handouts you Send to your patients. This feature will help you deliver them personalized patient education, which will, in turn, improve their satisfaction and retention--all while enhancing their understanding of their condition and treatment.

We know privacy is important to you and your patients, as a result, all of these Digital Handouts will be hosted by Orca and is available to your patients via a HIPAA-secure web portal, which will be linked to your search-optimized Orca Health Specialist Profile.

DentalDecide is a multisensory learning tool, which empowers healthcare specialists to teach their patients more quickly, efficiently and effectively. The app includes interactive 3D animations that permit you to explore and explain anatomy like never before.

Studies show that 3D animations are more effective than text, physical models and 2D illustrations, in communicating health information.

Lastly, augmented reality provides a unique way to enhance comprehension in-context, by enhancing the patient’s worldview with relevant visual and auditory information.

Satisfaction levels among people who are well-informed about their health are much higher than those who don’t understand their condition or treatment. Patients who interact with information via multiple sensory inputs feel more satisfied with the course of action they choose and the care they receive.

DentalDecide is free to download and free for personal use. DentalDecide's in-app subscription adds the Draw / Annotation and Send / Prescribe features to the free-for-personal-use Anatomy, Condition and Procedure content and is available through an auto-renewing subscription.

The in-app subscription also includes ongoing HIPAA-secure hosting of Prescribed Digital Handouts as well as regular content updates. As long as you subscribe to these tools, there's no limit to the Digital Handouts we will host for you and your patients or your licensed professional use of app content.

Please note: At the conclusion of your 14 day free trial, **you will not be automatically charged for this service**.

Two subscription options:
◦ Orca Tools monthly subscription for $20
◦ Orca Tools annual subscription for $200 (a 20% discount on the monthly price)

Subscriptions will be charged to your credit card through your iTunes account. Your subscription will automatically renew unless cancelled at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. The cost of renewal will be the same as the initial subscription cost. You will not be able to cancel a subscription during the active period. Manage your subscriptions and auto-renewal in the Account Settings after purchase.

    by News Monitor

    Concise and to-the-point explanations, both written and animations. Very handy to have info that is centralized in one place. Dentists should be using this when explaining procedures to their patients.

  • Great Information

    by emilio.olmedo

    Since the apps where free for a limited time I decided to give them a try to see all of the wonderful parts of the body. I was really impressed at the amount of information that all the Orca Health apps have. I wish I had an iPad to take full advantage of all these apps have to offer. Overall great info, great images and videos, great everything. Ive only rated a few apps and this one deserves a rate.

  • Very informative animations

    by GaryIsScary

    The movies that show animations of dental procedures are extremely helpful in understanding the procedures. I also really enjoy the interactive 3D model.

  • Perfect for both!

    by Bdog55

    I knew about this so I brought it in with my dentist and he was impressed. It helped me understand more of what's going on in my mouth.
