How your ADSTRA Dental Software Helps Increase Revenue/in Financial Efficiency /by Jennifer Decan
As a dentist, you strive to provide the highest quality of care to your patients. By doing so, you increase their trust and loyalty in you and your practice; helping your practice thrive in the long run. While providing such a high level of care to your patients, you also want to maximize the revenue coming into your dental practice.
ADSTRA Dental Software can help further increase your practices efficiency and overall revenue by giving you valuable information:
Turn cancellations into new appointments
As we know, cancellations are inevitable, unpredictable and unpreventable. However – by developing a short-call list, you can make them work in your favour. Developing a short-call list allows you to contact the patients that match the type of treatment required or block of time needed in priority order to fill the cancellation spots on your schedule as quickly as possible.
More appointments means increased revenue for your dental practice, – the ultimate goal.
Make it easy for patients to confirm appointments
With ADSTRA Confirmations, you can save your front desk staff’s time and energy from having to manually confirm your patient’s dental appointments. By sending automatic individual or group SMS and/or Email appointment confirmations and reminders to your patients, you’ll be able to get in instant contact with them and hopefully fill the gaps in your schedule.
Additionally, when your patients confirm their appointments via SMS, the schedule will be automatically updated. This eliminates the need for your staff to manually update the schedule, as well as call patients’ multiple times for appointment confirmations, giving them more time to provide exceptional service to your patients.
Drive growth by making changes based on current performance
With over 130 different reports and charts that can be generated in ADSTRA Management, on all aspects of your practice and viewed at a glance, you can not only grow your dental practice, but also improve the financial efficiency of your practice. By pulling these different reports you will be able to see which procedures generate the most profit, and thus focus your energy on acquiring patients that require these procedures.
There is always room for improvement in one’s business workflow. You can generate reports that can help you identify which areas of your dental practice need improvement, for example – pull a report in which you compare each providers production. See the profit coming from each provider, and use that information to implement best practices throughout the whole dental office.
You’ve invested time, energy, and resources in your dental software – now let it help grow your practice, and maximize the revenue coming in to your dental practice.

Three Reasons To Move To A Cloud-Based Dental Software Solution/in Cloud Security /by Jennifer Decan
How ADSTRA Cloud Dental Software Can Help Dreams Come True/in Cloud Security /by Jennifer Decan
Many dream of opening their own dental practice with the hopes of finding a safe and secure solution that will make the process as simple and efficient as possible. Today, majority of new practice owners opt for a cloud-based solution right from the beginning, and others decide to make the switch after years of being paper-based.
As technology has developed over the years, we have come a long way from when 56K modems were used to dial-in to the internet, or even further back to where everything was paper-based. In these times there were stacks of papers, and numerous files of treatments, notes, billing, reference letters and more laying around. Now, everything is stored on computers…what a change.
When new practice owners are considering opening a practice they may want to invest in either a single clinic or multiple clinics that offer a variety of specialized treatments and a wide variety of services for patients. With this, it is important they do some research and find a safe and secure solution that is easy-to-use and contains the ability to have their database accessible in multiple locations. Upon their search results, they will come across ADSTRA Dental Software – a provider known to make the switch easier.
ADSTRA Dental Software has offered ADSTRA Cloud, a cloud-based version of their software for years. This solution provides the capability to store databases on a remote server which is hosted on Microsoft Azure, the most powerful cloud service platform in the world. Moreover, with ADSTRA Cloud a new practice owner would not have to worry about the additional costs associated with hardware, as well as servers as they are not required. With ADSTRA Cloud one will be able to access their software and database over the internet, from anywhere and on any device – one of the biggest advantages of this solution.
Additionally, ADSTRA Cloud also offers the opportunity to simultaneously share ones database with several of their locations, providing the management team global reports as well as reports for each location.
The idea of migrating to a cloud system interests practice owners for a couple of reasons. One is that they would not need to divest some of their older computers, and two is that this platform is compatible with tablets, allowing them to utilize all of their devices.
Since ADSTRA Cloud is accessible on a remote server, the main requirement needed is a fast and reliable Internet connection. Just as easy as browsing the Internet, one could access their software by simply connecting to their remote server database and logging in with their individual user IDs.
The ADSTRA Cloud dental software solution is a complete paperless system that also connects multiple locations with one database – which is exactly what one needs in order to start building their dream dental practice.
ADSTRA Cloud Paperless Dental Software Solution/in Cloud Security /by Jennifer Decan
For over 20 years, ADSTRA Dental Software has been a leading provider of paperless dental software. During this time, ADSTRA was selected by Lockheed Martin Canada to supply the paperless dental software component for the Canadian Department of National Defence’s state-of-the-art health care system.
To satisfy their users’ needs to access the same database from multiple locations, ADSTRA developed their cloud solution in 2015 which combined their three successful modules: ADSTRA Management, Clinical and Imaging, creating ADSTRA Cloud.
Choosing to partner with Microsoft Azure, the industry leader in cloud solutions ensured that ADSTRA Cloud would provide the highest standard for a safe and secure cloud-based paperless dental software solution.
ADSTRA’s one-stop solution also has the advantage of scalability offering an ideal paperless dental software set-up for small and large offices alike, and useful to either single or multi-location practices.
The three main components work seamlessly to encompass all computer needs based on the area of responsibility for each staff member.
ADSTRA Management provides the ability to run the administrative aspect of your dental practice smoothly and without the need for paper documents. Appointments, Financial Records, Patient Communication, Insurance Claims and even SMS Reminders are just a click away.
ADSTRA Imaging is flexible and scalable – capable of working with a variety of dental imaging devices providing a solution that is sure to meet your imaging needs. The various dental treatment infographics that are included in ADSTRA Imaging can be effectively used to improve patient knowledge and understanding of treatments, and increase case acceptances. Moreover, reports for referring dentists can be created with just a few clicks, increasing your overall efficiency and effectiveness.
ADSTRA Clinical allows charting patients’ examinations, odontograms and perio exams and recording dental treatments and treatment plans. Templates can be easily used within ADSTRA Clinical, minimizing the need for manual input. In addition, new exams start with the patients’ previous chart, simplifying the process with only new conditions needing to be charted. Furthermore, ADSTRA Clinical works seamlessly with ADSTRA Management and ADSTRA Imaging: users can view images from ADSTRA Imaging side-by-side with patient’s appointments from ADSTRA Management.
ADSTRA Dental Software provides the optimal cloud-based paperless dental software solution for your dental practice software needs by combining the capabilities of the three main ADSTRA Dental Software modules with the safety and security of Microsoft managed servers hosted on the Microsoft Azure platform.
