Best option for Cloud practice management

Reviewed 2 years ago

Really good experience with the software. Price is higher than it should be but it is more convenient in the cloud. If it could connect with Dental Intel, I would put it in all my offices.

Pros

Easy to use. Familiar feel. No need for a server for PMS and x-rays.

Cons

No option for CBCT backup. Can't be used together with Dental Intel. Default reports sometimes convoluted although you can make custom reports.

Preventing the 50K Mistake

Reviewed 6 years ago

Each computer in the office is independent and isolated. They're "off the shelf" units and were purchased from Dell at extraordinarily reasonable amounts. No server, no contracted computer geek, no surprises. Most importantly, no added monthly maintenance fees. The support from Curve has been fabulous. What's the worst that can happen? Well, the system has gone down.....wow....we kept doing dentistry....

Pros

Ease of integration and ease of use

Cons

Inability to access the actual product from my mobile devices. I want to be able to interact with the entire product from my mobile devices(iPad, iPhone)

Vendor response

A thousand thank-you's for your kind review, Dr. Lurie! We've noted your suggestions. Many of our customers see a savings in IT and HW costs, as you have. Best wishes!

Switching to Curve Hero from my old server based practice management software has proven to be one of the best decisions I could make. I was faced with ever increasing server issues and daily troubleshooting was causing me to feel more like an IT person learning on the job than a dentist on some days. Even hiring multiple IT gurus was a not a good use of my time or resources. Now that I have been...

Smooth and easy transition from Old School Practice Management Software.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Cost, Efficiency, usability.

Pros

This is a complete solution to meet all Practice Management needs which is great but as this software is a cloud solution it is just like your Facebook account, Instagram, email etc, it is alway available right there where you need it and it works as it should but in a modern, more efficient way. It's quite intuitive and it is always trying to help you to achieve your goal. We've yet to encounter...

Cons

The Kiosk facility where Patients can can fill out their forms directly into Curve is good but you can see they are still building it out.

Vendor response

Thanks for the 5-star review! The benefits of a cloud-based management system, as you point out, far exceed the idea of keeping a server in your practice. Many thanks for your kind review and best wishes!

Must Do...

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall...satisfied and for now, will continue to stay the line...

Pros

Jazzy looks, Ease of use, NO MORE TECH CONTRACTS!!!

Cons

Costly when doing add ons...feels a little “nickel and dime” style. This isn’t a cheap product, but not many other industries (used daily, with cloud back-up, charge near this rate. Because it’s dentist, the price keeps climbing...there will be a breaking point or a mass abandonment when a fair-priced competitor comes along...just sayin!!!

Overall positive anxious for more updates related to billing / word process / portal enhancements

Reviewed 5 years ago

Cost savings no server to upkeep

Pros

Ease of charting and upload and organization of templates for images. Accounting breakdown of invoices. Patient portal and ability to send new patient paperwork is fantastic and saves so much time at appointment.

Cons

Insurance profile is too limiting as well as the word processing options in Curve. The capability to send statements needs to be reworked, need direct access to account from A/R reports with capability to send letters add account notes etc. tracking of statements and account out reach needs to be all in one area.

Vendor response

Thank you, Jill, for your kind review! We think our online forms are pretty awesome, too. We took careful note of your comments on billing as we are looking toward a face lift of sorts in that area. We may reach out to you in the future for clarification. Best wishes to you and your entire team at Stonecastle Dentistry!

Curve Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall we are satisfied with the service. Doesn’t appear our suggestions are taken seriously. We would like to have a program that meets all our needs. Thank you.

Pros

Very user friendly, good price, customer service.

Cons

This program cannot be be changed using fields and customization; it needs to be designed for an American office, not Canadian, ie DOB and DOS fields; The very worst feature is trying to build a simple report - it is confusing and time consuming

I am not sure if this software is as user friendly as dentrix or softdent

Pros

cloud based, nice graphics, decent reports, resonable phone support. I also like that the updates are done automatically

Cons

expensive....thought I would not need a server but I like my imaging software better than Curve. In the perio charting pockets of 5mm or more should be plotted in RED

Vendor response

Hi, Dr. Rolfe! Thank you for the positive review. We are aware of the need for some practices to see pocket depths of 5mm or more appear in red. Sorry to hear that you're still stuck to a server for imaging reasons. If you've not looked at our native imaging features for quite some time, please do. Best wishes!

Curve Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

started in May 2018. I am not the most tech savvy person but I picked up on Curve very quickly. I have been very satisfied overall with its ease of use. I can custom tailor the business reports to my specifications, which comes in handy.

Pros

Ease of use, intuitive nature, clean design, support is good for the most part.

Cons

R-copia, found out that I was deactivated without my knowledge. Cost me 1/2 hour of my time (and paid staff while nothing was getting done).

Unprofessional and careless

So far behind the Curve compared to other dental management platforms.

Pros

Cloud based. That is it.

Cons

Customer service is horrendous. Can't load fee guides on time and make no effort to do so despite multiple requests well in advance. Constantly placated by staff that offer no solutions. Year after year the fee guides are not loaded on time. Staff could care less. Expensive for lack of functionality and having to manually input your fees because Curve doesn't care to meet deadlines.

It's conceptually cool. Their customer support is responsive, and the software is cloud-based.

Cons

It doesn't live up the hype. The cloud-based software has stopped working 2-3 times since going live in less than a year. The acquisition of digital X-rays is non-diagnostic. The import of images from old chart software to curve is tedious. Image magnification is limited. Treatment plan implementation is tedious. If you want to give multiple treatment plans, each plan data has to be re-entered, which...

Vendor response

We have recently discovered that the imaging challenges described by this client seem to be limited to Kodak sensors. Curve Dental has an outstanding track record for reliability, innovation, and customer service, backed by more than 3,000 dental professionals managing the oral health records of more than 3,000,000 patients every day. In fact, a customer satisfaction survey conducted in May 2014 indicated 73% of all Curve Dental customers were likely to recommend the software to a colleague. Regardless, at Curve Dental every customer counts. We have taken careful note of this client's feedback and compared it to our current development plan. We will be giving this client a call to discuss further.

Overall pleased with system, we are working out kinks, but the training team is really good

Pros

Multi office, easy to use and to learn, great customer support and easy to use curve community with videos and PDFs to guide teaching new employees, easy to add new doctors for minimal cost

Cons

Steep learning curve for older, less cloud/IT savvy staff members, takes several extra steps to perform some tasks, not all services included with base model

Vendor response

Thank you for your kind review! We designed our software with a minimalist approach, which makes the software easier to learn and use, as you noted. Curve Dental is available in four different packages which allows our customers to choose which makes the most sense for their needs and their budget. Thanks again!

Curve thoughts

Reviewed 6 years ago

We have been using Curve Hero since opening our practic, 5 years ago and have been very pleased. The software is easy to use and has a pleasant looking clinical chart that can be understood by patients. We love being able to access the software from any internet connection, the auto updates and the fact that we don't need powerful computers and servers in our office to run our system. We were able to remove the IT service cost and decrease our IT equipment costs by using a program that is cloud based. Curve is definitely setting a standard for what all dental practice management software needs to become. It's about time the dental industry start catching up to the rest of the business world when it comes to software.

A New Look at Dental Software

Reviewed 13 years ago

Highly recommended. Easy to learn , easy to use, well-thought-out software that eliminates the typical hassles of dental software...all at a rock bottom price. What's not to like?

Pros

Web-based design is a new way to work with dental software. It eliminates the need to upgrade the program, no more worries about data backup, meets all HIPAA privacy concerns, eliminates the need to have data protection in place. Software is intuitive and easy to use, support and training are excellent. Monthly subscription is very reasonable and removes the typical high-cost barrier to purchasing dental software.

Cons

Company doesn't have a long track record...yet. Image management is a work in progress but they have made great strides to date.
