Curve Dental Software


 

Curve Dental is a robust, web-based practice management solution designed for small to mid-sized private dental practices. With Curve Dental, you can manage every facet of the business, from dental charting and clinical notes to patient education, treatment planning, imaging, billing, scheduling, reporting, and much more. 

This comprehensive dental office practice management solution is completely accessible from the web, so you can access patient data and other critical information at anytime, from anywhere with an Internet connection. This information is fully secure, and Curve Dental manages all backup and security, so practices don't have to worry about upgrades or server maintenance. This also makes Curve Dental an affordable option for small and growing practices looking to avoid a large upfront investment. 

The software's clean, simple interface is easy to navigate, with no confusing toolbars or complicated menus. For the doctor, the charting is flexible and intuitive, and the integrated Digital Imaging tool is both quick and accurate. You can quickly view key business metrics and access the built in patient education module to provide additional materials to your patients during their visit. 

Office managers like the software because it streamlines the practice workflow, eliminating potential technology hiccups while also providing an online library of training materials to bring new staff quickly up to speed. Curve Dental is also fully HIPAA compliant. Hygienists and Dental Assistants will like the user-friendly perio charting and dental charting, simple recall, and cutting-edge patient reminders. 

We recommend Curve Dental to any growing dental practice seeking a complete solution to manage their business.

I have been using Curve for almost 3 years now, I found that it was effortless to learn and Curve support walks you through every step. Curve customer service is above and beyond the competition's.

Pros

Curve has phenomenal customer service, straightforward to learn and easy to use. You can log in from anywhere which is great when you have a patient call with an emergency on a Saturday.

Cons

Curve is lacking in some features that one would think were standard in a dental software. Insurance refund is not an option, alerts other than medical aren't a feature and instant messenger would be great.

Advice to Others

I would definately compare features and ease of use before committing to a dental sofetware

There are many things that make this software the best I have used throughout my 30 year career in dentistry. Taking the top spot on the list would have to be Curve's customer service. In a world filled with disappointing customer service, it is their best feature!

Pros

Curve is by far the most customizable of all dental software.
It's cloud based platform makes managing multiple offices so much easier than remoting in to a server.
The team loves the ability to have access to the software from anywhere. They can finish clinical notes at home if necessary, they can check the schedule if needed & it even allows us to transfer our calls to another office because they can also see our database.
We have taken a laptop with us to community events to schedule new patients.
Curve is constantly updating the software. They use our suggestions for changes & improvements to implement new features or modify something that might not be proficient.

Cons

Sometimes what is good can also be bad! Curve offers so much opportunity for customization that it can feel as if there are secrets, which need decoding, behind each & every click. However, even then customer service will be happy to help!

Advice to Others

Call Curve for a demo before you choose another software ... you won't be disappointed!

Poor customer service (tech support). The reps immediately "blame" the road blocks on internet speed, computers etc...no one (at curve) seems interested in resolving the matter

Recommendations

Be sure to have a computer tech company to help at all times. You will need them when you call Curve Support. The reps at Curve seem to be reading from a manual and will blame it on every possible issue other than curve

Web based application, that I can access from home or my phone. Not dependent on server upgrades to my intranet, no more software updates.

Likes Least

Web glitches, the software tends to shut itself down or closes the browser unexpectedly.

Recommendations

You really need to spend time updating all your email address and ways to contact your patients. During the migration process, sometimes all the information is not adequately transferred and there is some data loss during the transfer. Keep this in mind as it can stymie your efforts during the transition.

Thanks, Dr. Grant, for your review! The "glitches" you're experiencing are not normal. We'll reach out to your team to see what's going on. Thank you for choosing Curve Dental to help you manage the killer practice.

I wish there was a way for Dexus to link directly into Curve when taking x-Rays instead of having to export them to the desktop and then upload into Curve.

Recommendations

Make sure you are trained very well on the software before rating it. Otherwise you might not have adequate information to operate the software correctly.

easy to access from mobile devices, different locations/computers. customizable but not as many features as softdent/dentrix/eaglesoft.

Likes Least

When the internet goes down you are unable to do most anything at the office. If X-rays are saved on another software/server, like dexis, you can view them on there. Otherwise, you need to reschedule a lot of patients/procedures. No ability to make routing slips. Privacy settings makes the schedule just about useless. Note "headings" are difficult to format.

Recommendations

Great for satellite offices that you want to "keep an eye on" from another location. Not the best for a large, multi doctor, group practice. Easy to learn but not all the features you may want/need to keep organized.

I love that this product is so easy to navigate. The sidekick makes it extremely easy and time saving to look for all the information needed when I'm with a patient, treatment planning, scheduling, and checking him/her out.

I do not particularly like the periodontal charting function. The furcation measurement function is not accurate. Typically measured 0-4 where are curve has it 0-3, so when charting furcaritions it can be confusing.

Recommendations

Watch the 'training' videos and contact customer support. Both of these tools have been extremely helpful in learning how to use this software for myself.

The accounts are a little confusing for me. It takes a little while to get use to. If you make a mistake on an account, you cant just delete it from in the invoice and the patient sees the notes and mistakes on there copy of the receipt.

Recommendations

There are a lot of helpful online videos! If you end up buying the product and you want to wait on training, the videos can walk you through everything you need to begin Curve. I used the videos for a few weeks before we had training and was able to do a lot. The Curve employee are great at helping when you call for a question as well. They are great!

It would be nice to have a few more features. The worst part is that images and scanned documents could not be converted from our old software.

Recommendations

If you are converting from another software, be very aware of what they can convert and what they cannot. Some of the things that cannot convert make life harder.

I don't like that the furcation charting in the perio chart is not correct. Normally a furcation is charted 1-4, in curve the options are 0-3 which is not an accurate measurement.

Recommendations

Watch the training videos! They are extremely helpful when you are first starting out with the software or even if you've been using the software and just need a refresher on something.

Curve has a lot of features, but not all the bells and whistles that some of the other big names have, especially in the billing and accounting side. It is not very easy to treatment plan and dates are often tricky to find.

Recommendations

Use the community online and ask plenty of questions. Spread out your training sessions and really play with it in the meantime so you can use the training sessions to the fullest.

We have five offices, and all five had different software initially. It is great to have the same software in all offices, and I love that I can access all databases from any computer, especially at home. In my job as Operations Administrator, I constantly deploy staff to different offices. I also think the vendor has done a terrific job handling the conversion and explaining the process clearly. Great communication.

Likes Least

Nothing specific...yet! I imagine there will be a few things that are "easier" in other software programs, but, overall, I think this is the best choice for our corporation.

Recommendations

Practice, practice, practice. And ask a lot of questions; the vendor is great about responding to questions and concerns.

We have 5 different offices (each on it's own database). We like that we can streamline each individual database to mirror one another, thus allowing us to move staff members from location to location without having to learn the ins and outs of 5 different databases.

Likes Least

Because of it's ability to be customized in so many different ways, it can be frustrating to make a decision. Also the system has many hidden abilities which is sometimes time consuming to navigate.

I have had some complaints from our clinical staff about xray quality within the bridges created for xray software to integrate with Curve.

Recommendations

Discuss with customer service what you like and do not like about your current system and allow them to help you understand how those circumstances are handled in Curve. They are great!

The best attribute that Curve has is their customer service/ticket option. I like that no matter what, Customer Service is just a "new ticket away"! I have always had my questions answered and issues resolved in less than 5 minutes. I even had a customer service representative call ME, he wanted to make sure he answered my questions clearly and that he understood what I was asking. We had a dialogue that went back and forth a few times and I felt my issue had been sufficiently resolved. However he called me just to verify that I was content with the answers. Who does that anymore??

Likes Least

I would really like to have more accessibility to Curve via my mobile phone.

Recommendations

I recomend that if you are evaluating such software, consider that no matter the level of anyone working in your office, they can easily pick up Curve or get the help they need right away.

The native billing statements are a bit clunky but we have circumvented this issue by using a 3rd party billing provider to print and mail our statements which appear in a more legible fashion.

Curve is one of the first dental practice software systems to be totally on the cloud! The other big names in dental practice software are just starting to develop cloud systems, but Curve is totally on the cloud. We can access the whole system from any computer with a secure internet connection. The company is also fun and quirky, and that is reflected in their marketing and communications. It makes you feel like you are part of a fun team! And it's easy to use!

Likes Least

The security settings need serious improvement. Sensitive patient information (like SSNs) should be masked, and admins should be able to control the settings for each user more. There are several items that not all of the staff should have access to or should be read-only (like prescriptions, billing information, the ability to modify invoices and write-off balances, and some functions in the admin section).

Recommendations

The cloud is the way to go. The dental industry is finally catching up to the rest of the software industry and going on the cloud. It doesn't make sense to buy servers and pay for in-house IT support to maintain internal servers!
