Abstract: This article describes the use of a newly developed animation for the delivery of patient information pertinent to dental treatment performed under intravenous conscious sedation, and provides an understanding of how digital health-related information impacts upon the patient experience. This article provides insight into the rationale for using animation as a means to deliver healthcare-related information, the process undertaken to develop this animation and how the themes and imagery in the animation can be used more broadly to further enhance the patient experience in primary and secondary dental care settings.

Clinical relevance: This article outlines the process of developing an animation for patient information and the impact animation can have upon patient experience locally as an aid to delivering instructions.
