Curve Dental wants to Change Dental Software

For the past 2 days I've been spending some time in Utah, with the team from Curve Dental. They have a "Fresh, Web Based Alternative to Dental Software".

The basic premise for Curve Dental is to provide dental practice management software over the Internet using a web browser and some amazing Web 2.0 programming. The result is dental software that can run a practice using only an Internet connection and a web browser.

It doesn't matter whether you are running Mac, PC, or Linux. It doesn't matter if you are in the office or at home. The software runs "in the cloud". Although I haven't gotten all the financial details yet, they are looking at a monthly subscription fee with additional dollars for training and conversion.

I saw a live demo last night done on a wireless connection and I was flat out amazed at the speed at which it functioned as well as the forethought that went into the design.

Imagine never having to install an update again (it's all done by Curve on their servers). Imagine never having to buy a server for the office again. Imagine the possibilities when all of your practice can be run through a website.

Curve told me when they invited me that I was going to see the "next big thing" when I got here. I feel they've proved their point.

There is still work to do and things to add, but the team at Curve is on the right track. The Curve team is full of dental software veterans and some outside the box thinkers. I'm expecting big things from them... and I'm not always easily impressed.
