How Gumzzz work
Patients will have the possibility to select, for free, the most relevant dental clinic for their needs, based on transparent and validated reviews from other people. Also, the platform allows the patient to interact, in real-time, with the Gumzzz support department or with a designated person from the chosen dental facility. In addition, the platform provides the option to attach documents to be visualized and evaluated by the preferred dentist.
For clinics, Gumzzz creates a favorable digital context where they can build a relevant virtual presence through the account on the platform. Also, the clinics have the option to interact live with their patients, as well as having a clear overview of the appointments and potential cancellations.
Moreover, the platform offers a manageable environment where clinics can list their offers being certain that these offers will reach the desired target group who can acquire them directly from the platform.
In the near future, the company will provide dental insurance and financing services for patients using the services of the clinics listed on the platform. Also, patients will have the option to pay online through the platform or directly to the chosen clinic, thus helping them keep a full overview of costs and dental procedures that can be accessed at any time in the user’s account on the platform.
Moreover, Gumzzz will offer its users relevant information regarding transportation to and from the desired location and accommodation in the city of choice, including about the tourist attractions in the respective area. Thus, the platform also includes the medical tourism component, and the patients have full control over their medical services, accommodation and transportation.
