A FREE fallow time calculator for dentists has been launched to enable dental professionals to determine, justify and record the fallow period necessary following dental procedures carrying a higher risk of exposure to potentially-infectious aerosols.
The calculator has been built by the digital consent platform Flynotes and is accessible on desktop computers. A mobile friendly version is due soon. It has been endorsed by the Chief Dental Officer for England and complements Covid-19 guidance published by the Faculty of General Dental Practice UK (FGDP) and the College of General Dentistry (CGDent).
The calculator also incorporates recent Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme (SDCEP) recommendations on fallow time.
The fallow time calculator offers a full audit trail, updated regularly in accordance with the guidelines, which practices can use to aid diary planning, allowing efficient patient treatment flows whilst ensuring necessary fallow periods are implemented.
