Technology is changing the way dental practices are managed and marketed. More and more practices are using cloud-based solutions to improve practice operations and communications while maintaining patient privacy and compliance.
Cloud solutions offer dental practices many advantages while allowing employees to focus on patient care, not IT issues.

Electronic medical records, for example, allow for more transparency, information sharing and communication between patients and their medical providers. Practice management software applications allow for seamless integration of scheduling, billing, insurance management, referrals, patient records and general management.
