Time Frame:

The client, both dentists, wanted an easier way to provide after-hours care for their dental patients in case of emergencies. One that was third-party, secure, and convenient to both the dentist and patient. To understand the costs and how their idea could turn into a reality, they used Airship’s mapping service and then continued working with Airship to design and develop their complete application called Loop.

Loop’s founders are new to the start-up world and were in need of a tech partner to help create a solution to a common problem they and other dental professionals were facing. Our crew was able to find that we could combine third-party services coordinated with a custom backend, saving the client time and money on development (because over-architecting to over-charge clients is not cool, obviously). The solution became an accessible web app for patients, an administrative portal for subscribing practices, and a cross-platform mobile app for dentists. Dentists are even able to connect with their patients using a secure communication tool that doesn’t share personal contact information.

Goals:

  • Design and develop an intuitive and responsive web app for patients to create cases
  • Design and develop a cross-platform mobile app for dentists to review and act on cases
  • Provide a web app for subscribing practices to review and configure service offerings
  • Integrate multiple third-party services coordinated by a custom backend

Technology Used:

  • React
  • React Native
  • AWS
  • PostgreSQL
  • Ruby on Rails
  • Third-party services: Twilio, OneSignal and Stripe
