MEET REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS

MEET TGA REQUIREMENTS

MEET AHPRA REQUIREMENTS

If you work with dental implants in any capacity, current AHPRA and TGA regulations stipulate that all components for dental implantable devices (implants and abutments) need to be accurately recorded and stored for a minimum 7 years in thorough detail (this includes but isn't limited to the implant or abutment Lot/Batch and Reference numbers)

Personalised medical devices (such as customised abutments and prostheses connected implants) require records to be retained for 15 years. Moreover, these details must be provided to the patient at their request. Anyone not doing this in breach of these regulations

The Dental Implant Registry (DIR) helps keep your Practice compliant, by recording all relevant implant component information, and gives patients access to this information automatically, once the registration has been completed

Furthermore, the TGA even endorses & recommends using the DIR to keep and record implant details

Some implants, such as Zygomatics and Osseoframes, even require mandatory Patient Implant Cards (PICs), which the DIR registration is a digital version of

ELIMINATE PATIENT RECORD REQUESTS

By registering your patients implant components (implants and abutments) on the DIR, your patients automatically get access to this information

Patients change dentists at least once in their lifetime (90% as per a recent DIR survey of over 1,000 patients), which is why practices are contacted regularly to release patient records. This process is tiresome at the best of times, and nightmarish at the worst!

With dental implants lasting upwards of 20+ years, trying to access old records can be near impossible

The solution is the DIR! Every registration is securely stored for the patients lifetime, and accessible by them. This eliminates the need for their future dental professional to contact your team for a release of records! The patient, or their new dental professional, can simply log in to the DIR and access these details (patient approval required)

And the best news? DIR registrations can take less time than current workflow protocols, and we even pay your Practice for data entry!

SAVE YOUR PRACTICE TIME

Utilising the DIR in your Practice can save your admin team time now and in the future!

Data Entry of implant information reduced to 2-3 mins per component:

- Workflows with drop-down selections and full catalogues to select products and materials from

- DIR registrations can replace the need to create a clinical note, saves typing and potential errors occurring

Release of Patient Records:

- Patients are given their own DIR login to access their own information, so other treating Dental Professionals won't ever have to contact your practice for these records again!

IMPROVE PATIENT RECORDS

By registering your patients implant components on the DIR, you are ensuring the information captured is not only accurate, but also relevant and accessible!

Are you currently recording the exact implant componentry you are installing incl. LOT/Batch and Reference numbers?

- Without this, future treatment becomes difficult as treating Dental professional won't know what tools to use.

Daily question asked on message boards is "What Implant is This?"

Do you record bone grafting information and materials? This is essential for patients if they ever want to donate blood again!

The DIR helps you record all this in one simple process, and creates an easy to read PDF that can be accessed by the patient or their future Dental Professionals, ensuring the best long term care.

Provide the best standard of care for your patients by using the DIR!

WHAT IS THE DIR?

The DIR is an online registry for dental implant components. Operating in Australia and New Zealand, we work with Dental Practices to record and identify the implants of existing, new or emergency patients quickly and accurately. By recording implants directly on the registry, patient details will always be up-to-date and accessible, from anywhere in the world.
