Likelihood to Recommend

Curve Hero

It is fantastic for any office that has more that one location. It takes away the lagging server problem and allows you to see schedules in all locations individually or together. You have the capability of running everything as one office but also separating them internally. Patients love the flexibility of moving between offices seamlessly. No more forwarding over records to one of your other locations.

Open Dental Software

Open Dental is suited for any dental practice, even with older equipment. It works great with XDR for imaging, but also will integrate with any other imaging on the market. Open Dental's appointment layout is easy to navigate, and you can get into charts with just a click. Employees who are learning the software have it easy compared to some of the other alternatives.

Alternatives Considered

Curve Hero

We evaluated Carestack software but found it far too complicated and too many steps to do. It was lacking the ease of use that Curve Hero has. We were looking for something that was user-friendly and easy to understand Curve Hero had all of that.

Open Dental Software

Open Dental is faster than the alternatives, and the support is much better with very low hold times. It's more customizable with lots of plug-ins available, although they aren't really needed. A strong user community group is available as well, where you can see different use cases and read up on experiences of other users of the software.
