An online oral health enrolment form is making the process of families enrolling their child in free basic dental care quick and easy.
The online form, pitched as an idea in the 2016 Southern Innovation Challenge by the Oral Health Promotion Team, went live in late February this year in an effort to make the service more accessible for families and to reduce the cost of printing enrolment forms.
"We value our patients' time so we wanted to make the service more accessible and remove all the barriers to enrolment," says Kate Hall, Health Promotion Advisor, Community Oral Health.
The form will also be used to easily update contact details for those already enrolled. "We anticipate this will decrease the number of children who do not receive their posted appointments and therefore, reduce the number of missed appointments for the service."
