Move from paper to cloud

If you are a dental practice that has been using a paper based system to manage your practice and patients for a while, then moving to the world of digital may seem like a difficult challenge and a daunting experience for some members of your team.

Today, we live in a digital world using cloud enabled technology for so many things that we may not always be aware of, from booking restaurants, entertainment streaming or keeping in touch with our families during the pandemic. For dentistry, cloud technology is proving transformative and has allowed dental practices to navigate the unprecedented levels of uncertainty and challenges we have faced in recent times. Cloud enabled practice management software has helped dental practitioners to streamline processes, triage patient care, deliver contactless journeys and manage their teams.

Cloud-enabled dental software, like Dentally, provides your dental practice with the digital tools to transform your practice in a simple and effective way - saving you time, keeping costs down, automating your patient communications, managing finances and keeping your appointment book filled.  

It can ease the burden of all aspects of your day to day processes and for your team it is easy to use, so the move to digital is seamless.

It is much easier

Save money

Dentally’s cloud-based software is accessible over the internet, so all you need is the internet or 4G and you can access it and inter-connect with other tools and applications. To use Dentally just download a browser, Google Chrome and login securely using two factor authentication for that added security.

There is no need for expensive, power hungry, complicated and high specification hardware or servers. Plus, no on-site server means greater data security, protecting your practice from data loss as a result of hardware failure or theft.
