What Is A Waiting Room Information Screen?
It is where a dental practice uses digital screens in the waiting room or window to educate, promote, and communicate with staff and patients. Popular uses of dental digital signage include introducing staff, promoting good oral hygiene practices, pushing special offers, and entertaining waiting patients.
The popularity of digital signage in the dental industry originates from its ease of use and potential to supercharge dental communications through a range of content. Within seconds, a dentist can create, apply, and deploy critical dental messages around their practice.
Through cloud-based software dental practices can manage their screens remotely from any computer. This has helped save an invaluable amount of time and money in both print and deployment costs.
How Does A Waiting Room Information Screen Work?
Dental digital signage is extremely simple. It works through a clever integration between digital signage software, a media player, and a digital display.
When a user updates their content within the software, the software sends the updates to the media player which displays the updates on the screen. This process happens in seconds and utilises the internet and cloud.

Top Uses of Dental Digital Signage
Promote Oral Hygiene Practices
Educate your patients on the latest and best practices to help maintain their oral hygiene. Display tips and tricks, images, infographics, and short videos. Recommend products that help them achieve oral hygiene goals.
Make your patients feel welcome through staff familiarity. Display staff profiles on your screen along with fun facts and images that help put patient’s minds at ease.
Promote Dental Products
Ensure your patients are looking after their oral hygiene with dental recommended products. Encourage sales by featuring limited-time promotions on your waiting room information screen.
It’s important to make a good first impression when visitors arrive at your premises. Reception area displays can showcase company videos, news and achievements. You can even post real-time, personalised welcome messages.
Entertain Waiting Patients
When we think of fun, the waiting room isn’t the first place that springs to mind. Display live TV alongside your content to keep patients entertained. Alternatively, play fun and educating dental hygiene videos.
Display Opening Hours
Keep new and current patients informed of your latest opening hours. Avoid patient frustration and schedule bank holiday and holiday hour changes to go live on your screen whenever you need.
Alleviate Patient Anxiety
For many, visiting the dentist can be an uncomfortable experience. Display entertaining content and take patients’ mind off their upcoming appointment. Tailoring video content for younger children can be particularly appreciated by parents, eliminating the ‘fear factor’ of visiting the dentist.
Deploy Live Practice Schedules
Offer transparency to your patients and let them know of the day’s live schedule. Patients can see how long it is till their appointment. When changes are made to the day’s schedule they are reflected live on your screen in minutes.
Display motivational quotes, pictures, birthdays, work, and non-work-related achievements on your dental digital signage to help keep your employees motivated and their morale high.
Encourage Good Hygiene
Maintaining good hygiene whilst reducing the spread of germs and viruses is more important now more than ever. Display health and safety reminders on your dental digital signage and maintain the health of your staff and patients.
Upsell Cosmetic Treatments
Bring in new patients and upsell to current ones by promoting cosmetic treatments in the waiting room or window. Encourage new enquiries by including special offers and discounts.
Share Customer Testimonials
Let new and prospective patients know how good you are by sharing real customer testimonials. Pull them in via a social media hashtag or create dedicated slides.
Digital Signage For Dentists FAQs
How does waiting room screen software work?
In short, a small black box called a media player will talk to your software and display content on your screen. Via an internet connection, when content is updated within the software the media player will deploy it to the screen.
How it works:
It’s very simple. Once your screen and media player have been installed, all you’ll need to do is connect the media player to the internet. Once connected, your media player can start communicating with your digital signage CMS.
On your digital signage CMS, you can upload pre-existing content, or, you can create your own content inside the CMS.
Once created, you can then schedule when you want your content to play and apply it to a screen. Within seconds of applying content to your screen, your physical waiting room TV will update.
What screen can I use?
You can use any screen you like. Either use a screen already in your possession, or you can buy one from your digital signage provider.
As your dental digital signage is likely to be situated in an indoor waiting room, a standard display should be okay. However, if you’re looking to have your screen on all day you may need a commercial-grade display. These screens are built for purpose and can operate 24 hours a day without suffering from screen burn.
If you are looking to install a screen in the window of your practice, you may need a high brightness display. High brightness displays are often over 10 times brighter than a TV you may find in your living room. This extra brightness helps mitigate glare experienced by bright lights and the sun. If you want to learn more we’ve written a guide to high brightness screens.
How do I make content for my dental screen?
Creating content is easier than ever. There 3 main ways:
1. It can either be made within the software itself making use of widgets, shapes, and brand colours.
2. Use third-party software such as Canva or Photoshop and upload content as image or video files to your digital signage software.
3. Take advantage of digital signage template software that allows users to create professional animated designs in seconds.
Can I advertise on a waiting room information screen?
Absolutely! At TrouDigital we believe your waiting room screen is a great way for your practice to generate additional income. You can advertise your own products and services, or you can advertise local businesses whilst patients wait.
With TrouDigital, you’re in full control of content and ad revenue. Other providers will try to dictate the advertisements on your screens, whilst wanting to take a large cut of the ad revenue.
Who is using dental digital signage?
Digital signage is being used by small and large dental practices all over the world. From a single practice to large chains, practices everywhere are utilising the benefits of digital screen technology.
Each practice, however, will use its digital signage in different ways. Some focus more on patient communications where others prefer to promote treatments and advertise local businesses.
Digital screens are transforming industries such as advertising, healthcare, corporate communications, education, and manufacturing through powerful efficient digital screen messaging.
Is any training available?
At TrouDigital we offer free training to all our users. Either ask for one of our guides or contact the team and book a training session with one of our digital signage experts. You’ll be flying in no time!
