Advent countdown...

We know you don't need an Advent calendar to know that Christmas is coming, but we thought we would use this tradition to look back at the last 12 months at Dentally and revisit some of the highlights and product developments we have made.  

Dentally Advent

  1. On the first day of our festive countdown, we look back at January 2019 with a great interview from one of our valued customers, Dr Mayank Morar, principal at True Dentistry in Bolton.  It’s a really interesting read here.
  2. It’s the second day and time to answer your questions.  This informative interview with our co-founders Nick and James, talks about how cloud based technology brings important benefits to dental practice management software.  If you missed it, take a look here.
