Cloud Based Dental Software

Pros

The layout was easy to work with, and very modern

Cons

Cloud based software, its a pro and con really. It worries me that it is all cloudbased and that if it crashes (because we all know that we cant trust technology 100%) but its also nice to have to be able to pull up if you are not at the office.

Dental records in the cloud

Pros

Its a new innovative way to keep your charts - its like using Google drive for everything - it just saves everything ot the clous as you go .
Not having anything local means that the back up is built right in.
All the functions of almost any dental PMS programs - everyone is presented a little differently - I like this one but it takes some getting used to. Over all clean design

Cons

The downside is you have to trust your internet connection completely. And the privacy of your documents. In theory this is a ll taken care of appropriately but who knows right . As soon as it is not physically in your office in your possession anything and anyone is subject to be hacked or have their info used inappropriately

Excellent Cloud Based Software

We love it and recommend it highly

Pros

This is the best software we have used for multiple doctors in multiple locations. It is also cloud based so we don't have to worry about a server going down or losing any information.

Cons

There is no electronic signature availability for the patient file

Disappointed in Curve Jacking my rates by 500%

Dont get curve unless they agree on a long term fee structure. They will kill u in the end once your deep into integration into ur practice.

Pros

I have been a curve customer for 7 yrs. Overall it's a solid platform but I simply cant get over the fact that they jacked my rates by 500%

Cons

Here is my gripe and it's a big one. They raise my fee from 250 per month to 1000 per month. They did it because I was not smart enough to lock in a lifetime rate and I have 9 doctors and two locations. They kill me for each doctor per month and no quarter for part time doctors. They used to work with me because they understood the part time folks should be burdened with a full fee.

Other issue is they fail miserably with two practices sharing info about patients.

cloud based great addition to my surgery

Pros

WHat is there not to love. It does so much and being on the cloud means that I never have to worry about how and where I can access notes.

Cons

Customer service was a let down. Waited for a good while in a queue and then the connection dropped out.

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!

A future contender, hope to see good things soon

Pros

This software tries to be a complete solution to meet all of your PM needs. But in the cloud! It has everything you want. But not really 100% functional. Its hard to explain, just check it our for yourself!

Cons

It just doesn't seem feature rich to me. I feel like they need a couple more years of experience before they really can get going.

User friendly, love that it is in the cloud

Pros

The fact that it is in the cloud. Scheduling is easy. The charting is easy to use and consult with. Easy uploading of files and letters.

Cons

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.

Easy to use but does have shortcomings

Overall pleased with system, we are working out kinks, but the training team is really good

Pros

Multi office, easy to use and to learn, great customer support and easy to use curve community with videos and PDFs to guide teaching new employees, easy to add new doctors for minimal cost

Cons

Steep learning curve for older, less cloud/IT savvy staff members, takes several extra steps to perform some tasks, not all services included with base model

Response from Andy of Curve Dental

Thank you for your kind review! We designed our software with a minimalist approach, which makes the software easier to learn and use, as you noted. Curve Dental is available in four different packages which allows our customers to choose which makes the most sense for their needs and their budget. Thanks again!

Curve is my Hero

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.

Response from Andy of Curve Dental

Replied December 2017

Dr. Choi! Thank you for your kind words and the 5-star review. We couldn't agree more: Skipping the server makes it real simple to access your patient data from anywhere. Thanks again for your review and best wishes to you and your practice.

Smooth and easy transition from Old School Practice Management Software.

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.

Thanks for the 5-star review! The benefits of a cloud-based management system, as you point out, far exceed the idea of keeping a server in your practice. Many thanks for your kind review and best wishes!

Pros

I like how its easy to manage patient charts, insurance, invoice, billings, appointments, etc all on one page

Cons

the charting diagram is a bit confusing to see because each tooth is so small. it took a while to get used to

Great and super simple to use,anybody can use this software without absolutely any hesitation .

Pros

I like that the x-ray feature already comes installed.
It is super awesome to use and easy to read.
I also like the diagram that it gives you with different ways to place a cavity or crown. It lets us show the patients exactly where the problem is with detail and no confusion.

Cons

I wish that this program Had a better intake look. It doesn't allow us to customize without having admin rights.
