Cloud 9 Software
Charting is easy. Clicking on all that tabs at each appointment. That makes it a lot quicker when charting. I would like to see a new tab to view X-rays. When I have to scroll through all the photos to view when we took the last x-rays, it’s a lot because we take photos at every appointment.

PracticeWorks is best suited for a smaller office who wants easy to use software without a lot of bells and whistles. It is very user friendly but is limited with customization options. There are better software systems for an office that wants to incorporate extensive marketing with the software. Overall it is easy to use.

Cons
Cloud 9 Software
  • I wish the check out process could be a little more simplified.
  • I feel I do a lot more clicking with the mouse with opening and closing screens.
  • When clicking on a patient in the schedule I wish it showed who I'm calling to verify and appointment without opening the patients chart.

  • The patient handouts such as treatment plans and billing are very outdated looking.
  • Buggy at times
  • Marketing is behind the times. It is very difficult to run email lists for targeted procedures and no way to send an email blast from PW directly.

I have spoken to several support members along the way, and everyone is super helpful and exited to find a solution. Everyone is courtesy and patient. I had a problem that I could not figure out on my own and just with my description, I was given clear step by step instructions to get it solved!

Alternatives Considered
Cloud 9 Software
The non-server version of Ortho2 we were already using would have cost a significant amount to merge our three separate office databases. Cloud 9 already had parameters set to be able to do this. All of our documents and images transferred over with just minor issues- like where would our online forms go that Cloud 9 did not have an automatic home for. Cloud 9, on the other hand, does not have nifty image layout options, their letter editor is a cranky non-Word program I do not like, and creating custom reports is definitely easier in Ortho2.

We evaluated Dentrix at the time of purchase. At that time PracticeWorks had bought out our software vendor. We chose to go with Practice Works since they would get a better conversion of our current patients. As time has passed, we have been told Dentrix has more customization options.

Return on Investment
Cloud 9 Software
  • We could access everything from home during Covid shutdowns since it’s cloud based.
  • Negative would be more time editing photos & more clicks to get to things.
  • It has also made billing and insurance claims easier.
