Another great meeting at SCN (Speaking Consulting Network) in Loveland, Colorado comes to a close. XLDent attends this meeting to help dental consultants with questions they have about mobile technology and to help them learn more about how XLDent improves front desk and clinical workflows. We are happy to say that consultant reviews of the XLDent Dental Practice Management System are very positive. They are stating that XLDent has excellent support in addition to a well-designed Electronic Dental Record which leads to increased production. At XLDent we are focusing on improved patient care through software design for mobile technology, and this group really sees the benefits XLDent can offer their clients.
Today XLDent is at the national meeting for the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry in Orlando Florida. The meeting is going very well with dozens of doctors and resident doctors stopping by imagining the possibilities of going mobile with Tablet PC’s. One doctor mentioned that the XLDent Dental Practice Management Software and mobile tablets will help manage the chaos of running a pediatric office. Enclosed you’ll see a picture of the XLDent booth with a group of resident doctors from the University of Iowa Dental School. We are glad to see that the pediatric specialty is imagining all the possibilities of electronic dental records using the power of wireless tablet PCs and XLDent.

The rain, sleet and snow didn’t succeed in keeping people away from the 2013 Iowa Dental Association Annual Session. Starting with Thursday’s opening night of the exhibit hall, the XLDent Dental Practice Management Software was a big hit. The focus continues to be less on the old traditional desktop system and more on tablet pc’s where XLDent’s electronic dental record provides flexibility with wireless and mobility. XLDent was happy to introduce several new tablets featuring the entire product suite, including the Motion C5t and the new Microsoft Surface.
Just back from the Wisconsin Dental Convention at the Kalahari in Wisconsin Dells.. We enjoyed seeing numerous current XLDent users along with some potential new customers that wanted to change over to XLDent Dental Practice Management System and go fully chartless with XLDent’s Electronic Dental Record. There was also much excitement about our wireless tablet PC technology and the improvements that XLDent offices are seeing in clinical workflow. We are looking forward to 2014 and beyond as we switch to a Fall Convention Schedule in Wisconsin.
This year the Star of the North and the Nebraska State Dental Meetings overlapped! The Star of the North, of course, was a much larger meeting with much more traffic, but as always it’s nice to be part of the NE meeting. We visited with a lot of Doctors and staff at both meetings that wanted to change over to XLDent Dental Practice Management System and go fully chartless with XLDent’s Electronic Dental Record. There was also much excitement about our wireless tablet PC technology and the improvements that XLDent offices are seeing in clinical workflow. We also introduced a new service for Minnesota dentists that secures email to make it HIPAA compliant.
XLDent hosted the MN User Meeting in Medina, MN on Friday March 15th and the attendance was great!

They also saw some exiting new features coming in the next version of XLDent Dental Practice Management Software. As a thank you to all that attended and as part of our continued focus on new technologies, we gave away a new Kindle Fire HD. The lucky winner, Jodi T. from Plymouth was excited to begin using her new tablet. Be sure to watch for more User Group Meetings coming to your area in the future.
