🆕 COVID-19 Telephone triage form for NHS England patients can now be completed within Dentally. Read the support article here.

🆕 Coming Soon: Multi-site permission enhancements. Multi-site practices will be able to lock users to a single location or group of locations meaning that they won't be able to access all locations within your portfolio

🆕 Practitioner Rotas - We have been working on a tool that allows you to create a practitioner's working pattern, so you easily manage and schedule your practice diary.


This update includes the following new functionality:

  1. Working patterns - you can use a stencil to create a pattern of working hours for a period of time for a practitioner at a particular site, then apply this to the appropriate staff.

  2. Build a diary and create multiple working schedules for the same practitioner to include adding breaks or admin periods as needed.

  3. View a list of diary entries that can be seen in a list form so that you can quickly see the practitioners name, location, date and working hours to check their availability.

  4. Stacked schedules can be build up for more complex working availability patterns for a practitioner.

  5. Temporary shift patterns can easily be put in place to reflect practitioners covering leave or similar.

  6. The Dentally calendar has been updated to display rota's for practitioners as well as practice site hours.

To learn more take a look at our support documentation here.

We will be beta testing this with selected practices at the end of November, so please get in touch if you'd like to learn more. Email us

🆕 We've added invoices and sundries to the Dentally API

🌟Improved: You can now see how many telephone minutes you've used this month from your billing section.

🌟Improved: Income Report - Permissions. We have updated the income report so that Permission Level 2 practitioner users can see their own activity. Level 2 non-practitioner users do not have access. Level 3 and 4 users are able to see the report in full and choose any practitioner.

🌟Improved: Multi-site practices can now restrict payment plans to a specific site.

🌟Improved: Perio Charting Update. We have introduced two enhancements; practitioner's name as initials have been added to the date selector and a name to the exam page to appear in front of the date.


🐛 Fixed: Waiting List - we have fixed the issue with the waiting list button on the patient appointment tab not working correctly.

🐛 Fixed: Patient Correspondence - we have fixed the issue with patient's correspondence not downloading to open correctly in Chrome as a HTML document.

If you have any queries then please do speak to the Support team.
