Founded by a Dentist to Help Other Dentists.
Flynotes is a digital health company dedicated to helping dental practices through digital innovation. It was founded in 2017 by a qualified dentist to help other dentists by reducing the number of potential patient litigation cases. The Flynotes founder, Govin Murugachandran, was shocked by seeing other dentists, his friends, go through the stress of litigation cases and felt that he could help. In 2018, Flynotes was launched and has been growing ever since.
Govin was recently appointed as an ambassador to The College of General Dentistry and was an integral part of the team that launched MyFTC - The Fallow Time Calculator. MyFTC was developed in response to the need for dental practices to accurately calculate fallow time between patients during the COVID pandemic.
The Flynotes platform is the most advanced digital communication platform in dentistry, which is: legally compliant, integrates seamlessly into a practice’s clinical workflow and allows for improved patient experience. Flynotes is committed to helping dentists and their dental practices focus on the delivery of world-class dental care by improving the safety and experience for patients.
Here for Dental Practices.
In 2021, Flynotes launched its COVID Pledge Programme to help dental practices recover from the pandemic and return to normality as quickly as possible. This programme was designed to help in two fundamental ways: reducing costs and getting patients safely back into practice.
The elements of the programme, were:
The launch of our Single User Licence, allowing access to Flynotes for only £24 per month
The removal of integration fees
The introduction of a 14 day trial
The launch of Flysend, our affordable digital communication product, helping reduce the cost of outbound SMS messages
Free access for dental universities to the Flynotes platform
The launch of industry-leading CPD courses on informed consent
The establishment of a student ambassador licence, giving future dentists access to Flynotes and the opportunity to learn about informed consent from industry experts.
Working with the Dental Industry
Flynotes is committed to working with the dental industry in helping to improve the care, safety and experience for patients. We are working with a range of industry experts, universities and bodies.

“Electronic consent simplifies process and increases engagement”
In a webinar last year hosted by Becker's Hospital Review, industry experts discussed how electronic informed consent streamlines provider
workflows by saving time and resources.
Why is there an essential need for digital in dentistry?
The introduction of new technologies have always arguably helped businesses to adapt to the fast-paced digital world we live in today, but the pandemic has highlighted a further crucial need to enable businesses to “innovate and thrive in an increasingly digital world”¹.
The difference between consent and informed consent
In a recent search, a trending question on Google has been “what is the difference between consent and informed consent?” In general and as an overview, the British Journal of Medical Practitioners provides the basic difference between consent and informed consent as being “the patients' knowledge behind the consent decision.”
