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.

Cloud Based Data Management and What It Means for You

Posted by Wesley DeShaw on Jun 2, 2014 7:44:00 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 8:57:53 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.

The Role Scripting Can Play in Ortho Practice Growth

Posted by Ben Shin on Feb 5, 2014 2:19:00 PM

By Roger P. Levin, DDS

Prior to the Great Recession, scripting was viewed as the be
st way to be sure patients and parents were getting the information they needed in language they could understand. It still serves that purpose, but Levin Group has reshaped scripting into a powerful motivational tool. We call this new communication technique Value Creation Scripting.

Saddle Up for the UGM

Posted by Shelby Kruse on Dec 16, 2013 3:01:00 PM

By Kim Barker
2014 marks the30th annual Users Group Meeting and my personal 20th year of being involved with the event. This year, like always, will be a celebration, but even more so for me. My first hands-on UGM was in 1995, and I was able to attend for the first time in 1998. I haven’t missed one since.

Preparing for the UGM takes a long time – from choosing the venue, to coordinating the speakers and exhibitors, and answering attendees’ questions. It’s kind of like putting together a Broadway show. You work all year to prepare for the big opening night. We learn each year what works and what doesn’t (just like those performers in rehearsals) and we try to make each year better than the year before.
