When considering dental practice management software, you can count on one thing: variety. There is no shortage of ways to manage the day-to-day business of your practice. But when considering a cloud-based dental practice management software system, the field narrows significantly.

What Dr. Slome, BDS, thinks of Curve Hero:

I started using Curve at the beginning of 2010 after using a few different dental programs. We had to update ourselves with the other systems, and often, when updating, we also had to upgrade all our computers. With the old system, annual updates were annoying, complicated and needed help from an IT person. When I saw Curve, I thought it was great to have something that was based online.

[With Curve Hero], the functionality has been fantastic, and they keep on improving while looking for feedback from us so they can be better. This is done without any disturbance to us because it is all done in the background.
We managed to go paperless using Curve, which, from the patient’s perspective, keeps us cutting edge and is appreciated by them. You also have easy accessibility anywhere you have internet access. If a patient calls me with an emergency and I’m at home, I can sort out an appointment by going to the website.


What benefits have you seen since using Curve Hero?

Other than going paperless, which is huge, it’s pretty well integrated. It’s very easy to get from Curve into my imaging system because it bridges very easily.
Communication has improved. For example, we don’t need to have any messaging system when patients arrive. We have bars on the side of the patient’s name that we can change the color of and shows on all our computers immediately. We also have places for memos, so it’s very easy to leave instructions about what needs to be done.

Why would you recommend it?

Compared to what I used before, I love the functionality of it and the ease of use. You don’t have the same issues you have with other systems. You don’t need to have the same level of backup. You don’t need to change computers all the time. As long as you have the internet connection, you have everything you need.
I have three practices, and communication is very easy. I can keep track of each practice from any location.
Curve, as a company, is very supportive. When calling them with issues, they do not make you feel wrong or inadequate; no matter how small the problem, they help to the best of their ability
