I am a Faculty Member, can I access my Dentistry desktop from my device or home computer?

Yes most full time Faculty and Administrative Staff will have access.

Unfortunately clinical associates will NOT have access to this service due to licensing issues.

Remember you must do your part and uphold patient privacy at all times and ensure your device is password/passcode protected.

System Requirements:

  • Windows computer running Vista or later, or
  • Macintosh computer running OS X 10.9 or later, an iPhone or iPad, with the App "Microsoft Remote Desktop" version 8.0 installed - available from the Mac App Store - free of charge
  • High speed internet connection
  • Dentistry computer account (the account you use to log into the Faculty computers)

  • Your remote connection will automatically log off after 5 minutes of inactivity
  • The maximum session time is 2 hours
