Utilizing the Cloud in Your Orthodontic Office

Posted by Michelle Haupt on Jan 4, 2021 1:09:41 PM

You might be familiar with what we like to call The Ultimate Backup Routine – the routine you go through each day to back up your data, images, and any other important files you need. You back up your data daily, weekly, and then monthly on external hard drives, and you store those hard drives in a safe, off-site location. You might also cross your fingers and hope that these backups work in the off chance you might need them.

There is No One Way

Posted by Michelle Haupt on Dec 16, 2020 12:05:26 PM

In the last few years, we are seeing a new syndrome, a course of action (or some may say inaction) that is usually a serious marketing mistake. I call this syndrome “single focus marketing”. Single focus marketing means that the orthodontic practice focuses on one marketing area and not much else. Examples of this mistake in marketing include focusing only on internal patient marketing, relying only on a strong social media program to bring in new patients, hoping only that referring doctors will continue to refer or increase referrals, or concentrating only on advertising or community relationships.

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.
