Lighthouse 360 was reportedly designed specifically to help dentists eliminate hours of manual work (16 hours per week on average) by automating daily patient interactions and office routines such as appointment reminders and patient reviews.

Once a patient has confirmed interest, the dentist simply approves the new appointment.
Fill-in is available at no additional cost to existing and new Lighthouse 360 clients.
Lighthouse 360 has been recognized by The Townie Choice Awards, one of the most prominent peer recognitions in dentistry and organized by Dentaltown Magazine. The software is also a Dental Product Shopper (DPS) Evaluators’ Choice. For a free demo of Lighthouse 360 and the new Fill-in feature, call 888-368-9101 or visit
