Congratulations for completing the basic level of the Dentistry Booking System project!
In this quest we will continue the dentistry booking system project by adding two more features: View booking lists and View Procedure lists.
This quest will help you develop an understanding of how coding is used in dentistry and how the adoption of new technologies is impacting the industry. In other words, you will learn how to use and develop your IT skills and competencies in dentistry, as the digital transition is already impacting the daily practice of dentistry, especially in the application of computer-assisted technologies.
Acquiring coding competences contributes to empower women returners in their personal development.
In this example we will code a project which replicates a simple Dentistry Booking System, used in dental practices.
This project will help you understand how coding is used in the dentistry. In this activity, participants will design a software in which the dentistry staff can:
- Book Appointments
- Clear Appointments slots
- View Booking lists
- View procedure lists
- Calculate Bill
At the intermediary level, we are going to display the booking and procedure lists to the user.
In order to complete the quest and continue to develop the booking system, you have to follow the instructions provided in the document entitled 'Dentistry Booking System - Intermediate' in the resources section.
You should also have to visit the website provided entitled:"Why use an online Dental appointment scheduling Software". This website shows the benefits of having an online Dental appointment scheduling software .This online resource helps to understand how the digital transition is becoming part of everyday dentistry practices and how digital and computer skills are becoming essential in dentistry.
Finally you should also watch the videos provided: the first is entitled "10 most profitable digital skills in 2022". This video focuses on the main digital skills that everyone should have such as programming development, digital marketing and social media skills among others.
The second video entitled :"The poetry of programming-Linda Liukas-TEDxCERN" features Linda Liukas, writer, illustrator and trainer for beginning programmers. This presentation focuses on empowering women in programming and why women should not be prevented from developing their interest in computing.
The second step in developing a dentistry booking system at the intermediate level is now completed. Now that you have developed your coding skills and have a better understanding of what programming entails, there is a need to develop your digital skills, even in the field of dentistry, which embraces new technologies and focuses on using digital tools, software and methods.
You can now move to the advanced level of creating this dentistry booking system.
- Use Python at intermediary level
- Improve problem-solving skills
- Implement programming knowledge to real life application
- Improve the code to help a dental office to display booking and procedure lists
