Multi-Location Practices Leverage Denticon
Denticon helps multi-location practices stay centralized and engaged. Its cloud-based capabilities have also helped group practices adapt quickly during the COVID crisis.
“Our doctor-owner model thrives on keeping teams informed and engaged. Utilizing a common platform ensures data integrity and an increased level of transparency when communicating KPIs to the field,” explained Danial Redifer, Co-Founder of EquiShared.
“The business side of dentistry is our chief responsibility as a management team. Denticon’s cloud-based platform provides for expanded service level capabilities such as teledentistry, centralized billing, and call center functionality,” added Cameron Elrod, Co-Founder of EquiShared. “These have become even more critical as we navigated the challenges brought on by the pandemic and the need to adapt quickly to patient and provider availability.”
“Our team is committed to providing practice groups the ability to move their offices to the cloud, releasing them from the constraints of being in the data warehousing business,” said Huffaker. “Denticon’s comprehensive platform provides online consent and patient registration, patient communications, and device-agnostic cloud imaging software, which has been very compelling to practice groups of all sizes.”
