Teeth.app • Contactless Dental Journey

As part of my job as Lead Mobile Developer for Automation Squared

A start-up founded by two dentists with a vision to build an app to address two main pain points:

  1. Enable dental practices to manage appointments and check-in patients remotely and contact free via an app – like a digital waiting room.
  2. Enable patients to search for dental appointments at any dental surgery in their vicinity.

The MVP

We approached the brief with a lean start-up mentality and built our client an MVP (minimum viable product) app. The app we delivered was actually five apps in one:

  • Dentist app on iOS
  • Dentist app on Android
  • Patient app on iOS
  • Patient app on Android
  • Backend dashboard web app.

The budget was extremely tight and at first I didn’t think we were going to be able to build them anything like what they wanted. But we achieved the impossible and delivered an iteration of design and discovery, screen designs for all apps and the development of MVP apps that enable new dental practices to sign up, manage and share appointments and a patient app that stores multiple dental appointments and provides push notification reminders and contactless check-in.

The Teeth.app and Teeth.dentist apps provided an MVP that helped our client secure their next big round of funding. Watch this space for the future of the dental industry!
