Automated decision making

What is automated decision making? It is a process whereby you are asked to opt in once to certain processes, these processes will vary from one dental clinic to another, as some dental clinics want to send marketing information to their patients. At Smilecare Dental Clinic we DO NOT send any marketing information, we will only send appointment reminders and relevant information about recommended treatments.

At Smilecare Dental Clinic, we have the following processes when you register that are part of automated decision making:

  1. How you would like to be reminded about the recommended frequency of dental appointments, such as routine check up and dental hygiene care. You can select on your registration forms to be reminded by text, email and or postal reminder. It is our duty of care to remind you of preventative care frequency, it is also your right to request no appointment reminders.

  2. Retaining up to date and accurate dental records. At the point of registering we will create a dental record and ensure it is kept up to date and secure. We have a legal duty to retain dental records for a minimum of 11 years or up to the age of 25 years. You have the right to request that we delete your dental records, in which case we will need to consult with the dental regulatory body: The General Dental Council.

Non Automated decision making, i.e. Specific Patient Informed Consent

For all other processes at Smilecare we will always obtain specific informed consent:

  1. Any recommended treatment, this will be verbally explained by the dentist and then written information will be provided and further discussions if necessary until the patient is fully informed about any options, likely success rates and costs.

  2. Sharing patient information with a specialist or hospital for specialist care, patients will need to specifically consent to the information being provided.
