The Future of Orthodontics

“It’s not whether you win, but how you play the game.”

This is a nice sentiment that we’ve all heard about sports but it doesn’t apply to orthodontics, especially when it comes to your practice’s future. In an excellent business book entitled Playing To Win: How Strategy Really Works, a simple method for evaluating the future is boiled down to one brilliant concept: Where will you play and how will you win?

Customizing Edge Cloud

Posted by Brooke Milligan on Jan 28, 2019 9:53:23 AM

One of the best features of Edge Cloud is the ability to customize it based on the role within the office. The treatment coordinator can set up Edge Cloud differently than the front desk person to see what pertains to a specific role. In addition, each office can use Edge Cloud in the way that works best for them. Dashboards can be set up differently, offices can have a variety of information in stacks, or various workflows.

Posted by Brooke Milligan on Nov 20, 2018 10:07:00 AM

By Roger P. Levin, DDS

The orthodontic practice as a business model is actually rather simple. The more new patients you have and the more of those patients that you close, the higher your practice production. So it stands to reason that one of the keys to orthodontic practice success is and will always be acquiring new patients. And getting off on the right foot with new patients requires making a great first impression.

Friday Happy Dance

Posted by Michelle Haupt on Nov 2, 2018 8:48:01 AM

It’s Friday and we are doing a happy dance over here at Ortho2 World Headquarters. Not just because it’s almost the weekend and we gain an hour of sleep this weekend, but because half of our customer base is using Edge Cloud! That means half of our customers are no longer backing up their practice management data, half of our customers have said so long to servers, and half of our customers are living a worry free life about what happens to their data in the event of a natural disaster. Now that is something to do a happy dance about!

What I Learned from Attending a Software Conference

Posted by Michelle Haupt on Oct 9, 2018 12:02:24 PM

For the second time in seven years, I was able to travel for work. The first time was in 2016 for the Ortho2 Users Group Meeting. I was the at-large winner chosen to attend to see what the meeting was all about. During the meeting, I helped Kim Barker, Ortho2 Meeting and Event Coordinator, with various tasks throughout the day to make sure everything ran smoothly. I assisted our customers with their questions during the meeting, and enjoyed the opening reception.
