Top Software For Orthodontists And Oral Surgeons

Ortho2 – Edge Cloud 6

The first product we’ll take a look at is from Ortho2. It is the Edge Cloud 6. Edge Cloud 6 is a cloud-based practice management software that does not need on-site servers and backups. The company reports a 35%-44% savings on hardware when using their secure and private cloud. When you look at their 14 easy to use tools, it’s all up to you, not the software, to choose which device you want to use for your convenience computer, tablet or smartphone.

Of those fourteen tools these three stuck out the most:

  • Edge Cloud Storage – Without the need for on-site servers for backups your data and patient information are stored and located in a bank-level secure off-site cloud storage facility.
  • Patient Rewards – All patients love prizes. Using a rewards program that motivates clients to meet their appointments, practice good oral hygienes, and gifts them for their cooperation.
  • Online Forms – In the comfort of your patient’s home, they can fill out a secure electronic health form at Ortho2’s website. No more fumbling around in a purse or wallet, in an office, trying to remember if you brought all the personal and medical history with you.

Overall Edge Cloud 6 Review

The Edge Cloud 6 is hugely staff and patient-friendly. Eliminating or reducing any hardware costs by using a cloud-based computing solution, with high-level backup security, rewarding patients with prizes for attendance and encouraging proactive oral hygienes, and filling out patient forms from home is more than powerful.

Carestream Dental – CS OrthoTrac

Our next product is from Carestream Dental. Their CS OrthoTrac software promises your day-to-day activities will become easier than ever before to manage and will be accomplished using their full range of 24 automated tools.

Of those twenty-four tools, these three stuck out the most:

  1. Enhance Productivity – Flexible Appointment Scheduler helps keep your waiting room full, but if a patient needs to reschedule you merely find an optimal time slot and drag and drop.
  2. Maximize Profitability – Manage Cash Flow at a glance. You can process finance or late charges automatically. Send reminders and track any overdue payments.
  3. Improve Patient Care – Comprehensive Charting eliminates parents waiting for answers to their questions. If a parent wants to know when treatment times start or finish for the child, your staff looks at the screen, and all the information is there. No waiting or of guesswork

Overall CS OrthoTrac Review

Keeping a waiting room full is essential, being flexible with rescheduling invites goodwill with patients and potentially future referrals. Would you want to guess who owes you money or know beyond of shadow of a doubt? In times of children’s care parents are on high alert, asking random questions and expecting fast answers without the waiting. These tools spell out: Friendly, Savvy, and Attentive.

Carestream Dental – CS WinOMS

Another Carestream Dental product to make our review is: CS WinOMS. Oral surgery has a very well thought out program with CS WinOMS. Surgeons in the operating room, staff back at the office and patient care are all woven together with this product.

Two crucial tools the oral surgeon can’t work without:

  1. Electronic Medical Records – From the Anesthesia Record to the Medical History, and then the Treatment Planning no guesswork needs to take place. All medical record documentation is kept up to date, and the different treatment options can be reviewed with patients.
  2. Paperless Record Keeping – Easy patient registration online, document scanning sent to the patient’s record, and integrating images into a patient’s

Overall WinOMS Review

CS WinOMS can operate on its own, but also plugs into all Carestream Dental product components making it part of the practice management software package. Having accurate medical records before, during, and after surgery is critical for a successful operation. Being able to set up different treatment options using the software, gives you and your patient healing convenience.
