The ViewPoint to Edge Cloud Transition

Posted by Michelle Haupt on Oct 13, 2017 11:46:03 AM

Dr. Stuart Robb takes pride in keeping his office running on schedule 100 percent of the time. His schedule is worked out so perfectly that he even advertises to prospective patients that each appointment will start on time. For years, Dr. Robb relied on ViewPoint to manage his schedule. Earlier this year, Robb Orthodontics made the transition to Edge Cloud, the second time his team has done so.

Dr. Robb first became familiar with Ortho2 ViewPoint while working at the University of Chicago. When he took over his current practice – offices in both Lake Forest and Highland Park, Illinois – he had been using two different practice management systems, but chose to continue with ViewPoint.

Are You Planning for the Future?

Posted by Michelle Haupt on Apr 15, 2016 10:59:55 AM

We’ve heard all through our lives we need to plan for the future – whether that is setting aside money in a 401(k), having a succession plan in place, or even something as simple as keeping backups of your data in case something goes terribly wrong. The more we plan for the future, the easier it is when that time comes. And your practice management software shouldn’t be something you neglect to plan for.

UGM 2016 and How I Conquered My New Year's Resolutions Already

Posted by Michelle Haupt on Dec 11, 2015 4:21:51 PM

Everyone who knows me, knows that I’m a planner. I need to have all the details for everything planned out in advance so there are minimal chances of something going wrong. So it’s no surprise to anyone in our office that I have already started my New Year’s resolution list. While it’s not yet complete, it looks something like this today:

  1. Take a trip.
  2. Save as much money as I can this year.
  3. Learn. In any way. Something about my job, myself, others. Just learn.
  4. Spend more time with friends.
  5. Attend a costume party. Either one that I host or just attend. And go all out.
  6. Say thank you more often.

Have You Been Wearing Your Retainer? Your Orthodontist Cares.

Posted by Michelle Haupt on Jan 30, 2014 3:35:00 PM

By Dr. Ann Marie Gorczyca
I once attended a lecture of the Northern California Angle Society of Orthodontists given by the former President of the American Board of Orthodontics, Dr. Raymond M. Sugiyama. Dr. Sugiyama presented beautifully treated cases 10 years, 20 years, and 30 years in retention demonstrating perfect stability of excellent orthodontic results. After hearing this lecture, I decided to send out 10-year retainer check postcards to my patients asking, "Have you been wearing your retainer? Your orthodontist cares."
