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.
BENEFITS TO YOUR PRACTICE
IMPROVE EFFICIENCY & ACCURACY IN RESTORING IMPLANTS
IMPROVE PATIENT TRUST & RETENTION
By registering your patients implant components on the DIR, you are helping your patient receive the correct implant components, which helps ensure safe and efficient treatment in the future (during maintenance or repair of their implant). in some instances, the wrong information is exchanged between the dentist and the laboratory. By using the DIR you are helping your laboratory technicians and manufacturer reps by providing them with the most accurate implant information.
The DIR registration forms provide the necessary information so that your team receives the right components every time! Imagine having to remake a bridge or a crown after the wrong information is supplied to the laboratory!
By using the DIR, you are also helping to improve trust between you and your patients. The transparency the DIR provides helps the patient feel confident that the work you are doing is of the highest quality! By strengthening this trust, patients are not only more likely to stay at your practice, but also recommend you to friends and family.

IDENTIFY REGISTERED IMPLANT COMPONENTS QUICKLY
One of the most common problems Dental Practices deal with is trying to identify implant components in new or existing Patients. Even if this is only a rare occurrence, with the rate of dental implants that are being placed, and all the new systems and products being released, this problem will only increase in the future!
Without identifying the right components that were installed, Dental Professionals have to make educated guesses, either by using radiographs or asking for help from manufacturers or on social media forums. With thousands of implant products to pick from, it’s like trying to pick a needle from a haystack!
But there is help to be had! By registering your patients implant components on the DIR today, you are helping all treating dentists (including yourself)! Any currently registered components can be accessed in seconds (privacy laws apply), eliminating this issue.
The DIR will also work with you to try and identify/register retrospective or unknown components (all for free!).
