    Another 5-star review! Thanks! Anywhere, anytime access is a great benefit and advantage. Sorry to hear that your customer service experience did not exceed your expectations. That's unusual. Our average wait time is less than a minute and we get our customers back to their patients in about 8 minutes (numbers we publish on our website). Please call us at 888-910-4376 so we can learn more about when you called and how the call was dropped. Many thanks for your kind words!

    Insurance portions needs work. With it would let you account for the deductible on preventative work or if it has been met. Treatment planning needs to reference date created.

    I love it, just started my own practice and I skipped having a server and a wired service. Very intuitive, and pleasant to look at and work with. A+ software.

    Pros

    No need for server, always updates automatically, and having integrated imaging allows radiographs can be viewed anywhere in the office or at home. Don't have to worry about maintenance, done for you. If you have to move, there's nothing to move, you just open it up in another computer with internet. Easy way to become chart-less and paper-less (if you really want that).

    Cons

    need a good reliable and fast internet service, it can get pricey as time goes by, since you don't get to keep it.

    Smooth and easy transition from Old School Practice Management Software.

    Value for Money

    Cost, Efficiency, usability.

    Pros

    This is a complete solution to meet all Practice Management needs which is great but as this software is a cloud solution it is just like your Facebook account, Instagram, email etc, it is alway available right there where you need it and it works as it should but in a modern, more efficient way.

    It's quite intuitive and it is always trying to help you to achieve your goal. We've yet to encounter a gap a business process that is not covered. The Add-ons with Bluefin and Fast Attach function exactly as you would expect and work seamlessly.

    We're a brand new office and we've leveraged Curve for Practice Management and G-Suite (from Google) to manage email and documents. Doing this has allowed us to forego a any local server or even any network wiring, simplifying and reducing the cost of the build out.

    Both training and support have been great and they are never shy to quickly remote to your screen to quickly resolve any issue you may have. As for cost, by any metric it has to be cheap given you there is no installation or hardware cost and as it is cloud software upgrades are seamless and inherently free.

    To address the main counter argument of a cloud solution we are in a south Florida and during the last Hurricane, Irma, we had no risk of any server being flooded of course but once the storm was over and Comcast was still out we simply switched on the hotspot on the phone and we were up and running!

    Cons

    The Kiosk facility where Patients can can fill out their forms directly into Curve is good but you can see they are still building it out.

    So many! I can be paperless and if I ever need help, I am confidant I will receive the best help.

    Pros

    I love the customer support. If I ever have a problem, big or small, I know I can call and speak to a 'real' person. They don't leave you on hold forever and are very attentive to your needs. I have used many other dental programs, (such as softdent, eagle soft, dentrix, open dental, patterson's), this is by far the best one I have used.

    Cons

    I don't like how the periodontal charting and entering patient's birthdays are set up. I also don't like the ala cart charges. I think there should be more package deals.

    Cons

    As stated previously, the ease of use is my favorite feature. It is fairly easy to train new employees and have confidence that they will easily navigate their way through the program.

    Pros

    Curve is very easy to use and very user-friendly. Navigating through the program is manageable for even the least computer-savvy person. When we train a new staff member, I never worry about teaching them the program because it is so easy to teach.

    Cons

    Our least favorite feature of Curve is the charting module. It does not perform the way we think it should. While we are aware that you can't please all the people all the time, we would prefer to see changes made so that the charting module allows for more customization by the user.

    Can use anywhere you have internet access, reasonably priced.

    Pros

    Curve can be viewed online so you can see patient information right at home (where you need to see it during emergency patient calls) or to make sure you can see schedule changes as they occur. This program is easy to use and reasonably priced.

    Cons

    There are no folders under "files and letters" so after awhile the number of files can get large and then difficult to locate, which is annoying. Also the financials do not allow monthly production numbers for a year at a glance. You have to do each month separately which is time consuming and frustrating. Also Curve goes down from time to time and then you are SOL because there is no backup....

You'll love that, too! Many thanks and best wishes to you and yours!
