ADSTRA Cloud Paperless Dental Software Solution

For over 20 years, ADSTRA Dental Software has been a leading provider of paperless dental software. During this time, ADSTRA was selected by Lockheed Martin Canada to supply the paperless dental software component for the Canadian Department of National Defence’s state-of-the-art health care system.

To satisfy their users’ needs to access the same database from multiple locations, ADSTRA developed their cloud solution in 2015 which combined their three successful modules: ADSTRA Management, Clinical and Imaging, creating ADSTRA Cloud.

Choosing to partner with Microsoft Azure, the industry leader in cloud solutions ensured that ADSTRA Cloud would provide the highest standard for a safe and secure cloud-based paperless dental software solution.

ADSTRA Management provides the ability to run the administrative aspect of your dental practice smoothly and without the need for paper documents. Appointments, Financial Records, Patient Communication, Insurance Claims and even SMS Reminders are just a click away.

ADSTRA Imaging is flexible and scalable – capable of working with a variety of dental imaging devices providing a solution that is sure to meet your imaging needs. The various dental treatment infographics that are included in ADSTRA Imaging can be effectively used to improve patient knowledge and understanding of treatments, and increase case acceptances. Moreover, reports for referring dentists can be created with just a few clicks, increasing your overall efficiency and effectiveness.

ADSTRA Clinical allows charting patients’ examinations, odontograms and perio exams and recording dental treatments and treatment plans. Templates can be easily used within ADSTRA Clinical, minimizing the need for manual input. In addition, new exams start with the patients’ previous chart, simplifying the process with only new conditions needing to be charted. Furthermore, ADSTRA Clinical works seamlessly with ADSTRA Management and ADSTRA Imaging: users can view images from ADSTRA Imaging side-by-side with patient’s appointments from ADSTRA Management.

Three Reasons To Move To A Cloud-Based Dental Software Solution

Cloud Dental Software Helps Dream Come True

For as long as I can remember, I always dreamed of the day that I would open my own practice as a dentist. Finally, after years of studying – that day has arrived, and I couldn’t be more excited.

As I entered the office of the dental practice I just purchased, I was greeted by Marge who has been the practice receptionist for over 20 years. As she congratulates me, she begins reminiscing about her many years with the practice. “We’ve come a long way over the years,” she says fondly; thinking back to the days where we used a 56K modem to dial-in to the internet, or even further back to where everything was paper-based. “When I started, there were stacks of papers everywhere: files upon files of papers that housed treatments, notes, billing, reference letters – and everything in between. And now here we are, 20 years later, with everything on computers…how times have changed.”

Throughout our university days, I would tell my family about how I wanted to have a thriving dental practice. “I will open multiple clinics, offering a variety of specialized treatments that would offer patients a wide variety of service– all under the same practice!” I had always been the ambitious entrepreneur type, visioning the big picture and working towards it. Now that this dream was becoming a reality – I began to do a little research.

This type of project is not a given, we are speaking of a large investment of not only time – but also of money. Putting aside the costs in real estate which will be considerable, the technological needs are much greater than they were twenty years ago. Looking over the cost of new servers, new computer systems, additional software licenses, backup devices without forgetting potential training for new employees, I was skeptical. After all, we are talking about tens of thousands of dollars.

Finding a safe and secure solution that was easy-to-use and able to offer the ability to have our database accessible in multiple locations was a very important first step. Marge gave me the contact information for our current software provider. I wanted to see if there were any options available to make this switch easier, and to my delight – there most certainly were.

The Customer Care Specialist informed me that they now offer a cloud-based version of their software that provides the capability to store documents and databases on a remote server. Hosted on Microsoft Azure, the most powerful cloud service platform in the world, the ADSTRA Cloud dental software solution is a safe and secure solution with which we would not have to worry about the additional costs associated with servers and hardware. We would be able to access our database over the internet, from anywhere and on any Windows device.

The difference with a cloud dental software system is that instead of having to maintain our database locally, it allows us to access our data from anywhere, any time. It also offers the opportunity to share our database with several of our locations simultaneously providing the management team not only global reports, but reports for each location as well.

The idea of migrating to a cloud system interested me, as we do not want to have to divest ourselves of some of our older computers, and that this platform is also compatible with our tablets, this became a very interesting idea indeed.

Since this kind of platform is accessible on a remote server, the main requirement needed is a fast and reliable Internet connection. Just as easy as checking our e-mail or browsing the Internet, by simply connecting to our remote server database and logging in with our individual user IDs, we could access our database through our software.

The ADSTRA Cloud dental software solution is a complete paperless system that also connects multiple locations with one database – this is exactly what I had to have in order to start building my dream dental practice.
