Dental Practice Management Software Selection

There are literally dozens upon dozens of business applications available to automate just about every part of a dental practice. This includes the medical and electronic records side of the business to the back-office accounting, staffing and scheduling, and everything in between.

And the market’s changing fast as industry leaders are rewriting and moving their applications to the cloud and new players are showing up seemingly every day out of nowhere. So how do you make sense of it all and how do you evaluate and select the absolute best products to automate your practice? You go to the root of course and we recommend the extensive Capterra directory which lists all of the leading dentist business applications complete with profiles, user reviews, and a whole lot more.

The applications that have the most customer reviews tend to cross industries and are not necessarily specific to the dental industry. These include leading products like Marketing 360, Solutionreach, Yocale, and tab32 (to name just a few).

Our suggestion is to check-out these applications but make sure you evaluate several industry-specific products including Curve Dental Hero, Ace Dental Software, Dentrix, DentiMax, BookSteam, Denticon, Bestosys, and a few of the following additional dental practice management and business applications.

One thing you may already know – many dental practice management applications do not include a general ledger and have relatively weak accounting features – especially for larger practices that need more flexibility to manage multiple facilities and multiple business entities. That’s why we offer Sage Intacct, a cloud accounting application that easily integrates and extends your dental practice management software with a more robust accounting application and the clear step up from entry-level products like Intuit QuickBooks. Contact us to learn more about Sage Intacct, a popular cloud accounting business application for medical businesses and practices that can integrate seamlessly with most chiropractic business applications.Don’t wait until a crisis forces your hand.
