Cloud-Based Practice Management

When Drs. Jonny and Elliott Brennan opened their Arizona-based practice in 2015, they knew they needed a robust practice management solution to help their new business thrive. As a scratch startup, the brothers didn’t want to spend a lot of money on the infrastructure and hardware necessary for a server-based system, and were looking at options that would streamline their workflow and help them easily track important business metrics.

It was pretty clear to them that a cloud-based system was the best fit, they just needed to determine which one. They’d worked with different cloud solutions in other offices, and had a pretty good idea of what was available. After trying a few more, they decided that, in their case, Dentrix Ascend from Henry Schein made the most sense.

“We wanted a solution that offered more than just clinical software. We also wanted it to give us insights into the business of dentistry,” Dr. Brennan said. “The built-in business intelligence lets users customize reports with drag and drop functionality. It helps bring data to your attention in a way that can drive business decisions. That was important to us.”

If you’re ready to invest in a new practice management system for your office, you might want to consider going to the cloud as well. Cloud solutions offer a variety of benefits, from enhanced security to decreased upfront costs, and are becoming more and more common in dental practices. There are a variety of quality options to choose from, it’s just a matter of making the decision to move to the cloud and then finding the system that best meets your needs.
