111- Democratising dental with an app; Heath Fraser & Rebecca VanZutphen, Airsmile

Rebecca is a twenty-year veteran in the dental industry. She got into dentistry right out of high school when she began working as a steri-nurse. Rebecca then worked her way up and has been a practice manager working with Heath for the last ten years. She is passionate about the business side of dentistry, including patient care. A big part of her role is to ensure that the dental team is functioning optimally, or the business side of things gets streamlined, and they are successful.

Heath is a dentist and has been for the past sixteen years. Overall, he too has been in the dental space for twenty years. When Heath opened his patient-focused practice in 2011, Rebecca was his first employee. He is proud to have built his business from the ground up and see it thrive. Being zealous about patient-centred care, he was happy to have been able to craft a team with the same passion.

AirSmile helps people feel more in control when it comes to finding the best dental care that suits their budget and treatment needs. AirSmile is looking to facilitate a change in the way Australians do dental, to improve the health and wellbeing of our nation and instil greater trust and understanding between patients and dentists. The company hopes to bring freedom of choice and confidence to the dental industry in Australia. Giving patients the opportunity to know what they are paying for and from whom. In essence, the platform’s concept is for clients to comfortably identify a practice that they feel aligned and connected with. 

In this episode of Talking HealthTech, we sit down with two passionate dental experts; Dr Heath Fraser and Rebecca VanZutphen from AirSmile. We discuss a nifty little smartphone app that helps Australians find helpful information and compare dental providers. Learn how you can gain control to manage your health confidence.

This episode of Talking HealthTech teaches patients how they can take control of their oral health and independently choose an ideal dental practice based on a range of factors, such as health fund, reviews, cost, location, etc.  Dental care providers will also understand how an app can generate committed and ready-to-work patients for them.
