Dovetail Software


Dovetail is a complete practice management solution tailored for dental offices of all sizes and shapes, including specialists such as periodontists, endodontists, orthodontists, and oral surgeons. Dovetail is the only mobile 2014 EDR/EHR web-application that is certified by the ONC and is HIPAA compliant. 

Dovetail makes a paperless office possible. Notes, scheduling, billing, and treatment plans can all be handled using a tablet. Dovetail’s electronic insurance claims solution enables dental offices to eliminate the data entry and follow-up steps required by paper claims. Claims are thus submitted more efficiently, with fewer errors and omissions.  

The fact that Dovetail operates using a cloud-based, mobile model means that users get access to information from anywhere, anytime. Dovetail also automates the appointment reminder and confirmation processes using emails and text messages, to deliver a fast, efficient and paperless patient communications solution. Applications and data are hosted on a HIPAA compliant infrastructure, which means everything is kept confidential and secure.

Within the clinic, Dovetail simplifies the sharing process so that office staff and doctors can communicate effectively about patient needs and treatment plans without the added hassle of email attachments, documents, and lengthy email chains. 

Dovetail 1.4 is a certified 2014 EHR Modular (Ambulatory) product-version that is compliant with applicable criteria adopted by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It has been developed and marketed by Gaargle Solutions Inc., and is tailored to help dentists become eligible to take advantage of Meaningful Use incentives.

There are no reports for management or for clinical or financial practice performance. There also aren't any reports or printouts for patient performance.


If you're a small practice, it's okay. If you're larger, I'd recommend a separate management program.
