Abstract

All of us face dental issues in our day to day lives. In today’s COVID -19 pandemic, physically going to the dentists and making the bookings, or waiting for your turn to come might not be preferred. Hence this research work will address the following gaps with the existing applications in the same domain. Firstly, this application will bring all the dental clinics under one umbrella. Secondly, most of the clinics are till date recording bookings manually, leading to human errors in the booking details and other inaccuracies. Thirdly, unawareness about the nearby clinics may lead to a long waiting time, travelling to far off clinics will not be feasible every time. Fourthly, the clinics might face a lot of pressure in serving the patients due to COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines and reaching out to the patients through advertisements. Lastly, the patients might forget their appointments, or the doctor might be busy and unavailable due to emergency cases etc., thereby leading to wastage of resources in the clinic. Book Your Dentist comes to help! This real-time, mobile scheduling platform will bridge the gap between the patients and the dental clinics, thereby being an economical resort for advertising their services as well as identifying the potential patients. The basic features of the application are to provide an easy and smooth integrated application in dental clinics that is characterized by the doctor's choice, introducing information about diseases, presentation of services, and provides an integrated advertising platform, and also capture user comments.
