Cloud Based Data Management and What It Means for You

Posted by Wesley DeShaw on Jun 2, 2014 8:44:00 AM

In 2014 the trend of data management seems to be heading towards the cloud. Of course with this sort of tech trend, you’ll see an ever-expanding pool of technologies that take advantage of this technology in some way. This blog posting isn’t about debunking, trash-talking, or advertising; it’s a brief overview of what the cloud means to us at Ortho2, and what it might mean for you as someone who might be shopping for a new practice management solution.

The cloud is often times really just another term for the Internet. I often get asked, “What can the cloud do for me?” or “Why should I consider the cloud?” Simply put, the cloud means you do not have to host any of your own data. Broken down even more, that means no servers, no server maintenance, no complex network setups for your office, no VPNs, no term servers, no to a lot of things. With Ortho2’s cloud, we house your practice data in a secured data center, we maintain the integrity of the database, and we deal with the redundant backups.

My Very First Ortho2 AAO

Posted by Ben Shin on May 7, 2014 9:57:53 AM


This year marked my very first AAO. Not only that but my first time in New Orleans, and what an experience it was. It was great to meet everyone and work alongside some people I haven’t worked with before. The convention center was massive, and it was interesting to see the various orthodontic offerings from all over the world. There was so much interesting technology on display, and coupled with the spectacle of the booths it was fun just to be there.

Posted by Shelby Kruse on Jan 26, 2012 1:11:00 PM


by Nancy Hyman, Ortho Referral Systems

The thriving orthodontic practices in today’s environment all share common elements in their practice growth plan: a vision of the desired patient flow (new starts and active patients), determining the target audience, a variety of selected strategies, and implementation of a task list and tracking of referral strategy efforts. In speaking with hundreds of doctors within the last year one point became very clear; the old way of creating growth is no longer working… business as usual no longer creates the desired results!
