New dental practices are often hit with a range of decisions to make all at once. As a new dental practice owner, finding the right software for your practice right away can make a significant difference in your business’s success down the road. Similarly, there are substantial advantages to implementing a new software suite like XLDent as early on as possible in your practice’s launch to take advantage of our proven workflows and customizable features for newly established dental practices. 

 

Dentists and their staff should not need to be technology experts to run a successful dental practice. Certain software systems are often much better for new practices because of their usability design. More experienced software users might be more proficient with any given software product in your dental practice. Still, the good news is that even staff who are new to using software tools as part of their dental practice workflow improve at similar rates to experts when the software systems themselves are designed with new users in mind. Thus, good usability is a crucial metric to the success of all dental software implementations. Usability is also directly related to your entire practice’s overall user satisfaction with the software product. 

 

At XLDent, we’ve taken a particular interest in the experiences and needs of new dental practices. Starting a new practice is a huge undertaking, and probably one of your professional life’s most significant decisions. The content, integrity, and continuity of your electronic dental records will play a key role in your ability to grow efficiently and profitably, as well as maintain valuable patient relationships and patient engagement mechanisms. XLDent’s All-Inclusive Suite of products and services includes all the tools you will need to make this journey. XLDent is your long-term solution for equipping your dental office with a customizable, scalable, and robust Practice and Clinical Management software system.

 

When you choose XLDent as a new startup dental practice, you will receive our special package for new business owners. In addition to our tried and true methods for getting started with the software, the time with your Getting Started Coach will focus on planning, building, and launching your top priorities – and leave you with a strategic plan to accomplish what’s next.

Choosing Software for Your Dental Practice

Posted November 6, 2020 by Beth

XLDent_choice

 

When it comes to selecting the software your dental practice will use for practice management, charting, or otherwise, dentists are often looking for just the right product to increase their practice’s efficiency, productivity, and revenue. This is no small task given the vast array of vendor options and features to select. We propose four key variables that can help you find out if a software is right for your practice: support, innovation, scalability, and integration. 

 

Support

Some software vendors offer little customer support or onboarding process for their products. Especially with your first software, a lot of time, money, and effort will go to setting up, installing, and learning to use the software. Your practice will need support to adapt quickly and realize the software’s productivity benefits as soon as possible. 

You’ll also need professional technical support on hand to make the most of your investment and avoid downtime.

 

Whether you have an existing practice or are starting a new practice, XLDent is here to guide you in managing or establishing a successful dental practice with our software. We not only understand the importance of the software selection process, but we also take pride in the experience and knowledge our XLDent Certified professionals will offer you during the process and long after you decide to move forward with the XLDent Suite of products.

 

The XLDent Software Assurance and Business Care Plan protects your investment. We are here to help long after your initial training is complete. Our knowledgeable and friendly Implementation Specialists genuinely care about your happiness and success with the XLDent Suite. We will consistently go the extra mile to answer your questions and help you reach your software implementation goals.

 

Innovation

A software product that does not evolve cannot grow with your practice. Not only does your vendor need to be able to invest in the growth of their company to keep up with regulations, but they also need to keep up with the challenges and opportunities created by new dental technologies.

 

XLDent is committed to innovation. We use current and updated development tools for the continual enhancement of the XLDent Software Suite. At XLDent, we dedicate ourselves to providing software features and solutions focused on our clients’ success, and we work with them to define those goals. We express that dedication in our commitment to the continual enhancement and redevelopment of the tools we create. We are continually re-evaluating the current development landscape with a strong emphasis on using proven, secure technologies and features to the advantage of the dental practices that partner with us. 

 

Scalability 

The needs of dental practices are continually evolving. So is technology. A software product that gets you started today may not serve your practice in the long run as you continue to grow. Before you adopt any technology, make sure that you understand how technology can adapt and scale to align with your future goals as a business. 

 

XLDent Cloud offers a scalable cloud solution that can meet your practice where you are now and scale with you as you grow. With XLDent, all of your clinical documents, charts, patient contact information, and other practice management data can be accessed at any time by any authorized user. XLDent Cloud allows you to work in a secure environment without complicated network connections to retrieve your data. 

 

Integration

The right software for your dental practice will integrate with as many of the tools and services you need for success as possible. Always look for software solutions that offer a complete suite, or at least integrate Real-Time Insurance Eligibility, Electronic Remittance Advice, Patient and Doctor Portals, Encrypted Email, and more. 

 

XLDent has already integrated the eSolutions you need to stay competitive and maximize the efficiency of your practice. By partnering with an elite group of market leaders in the healthcare industry, we can offer you a comprehensive, fully integrated Electronic Services solution. All eSolutions are seamlessly integrated with your XLDent Suite to improve workflow processes, accuracy, patient experiences, and patient outcomes. XLDent has it all: electronic prescribing, patient and doctor portals, appointment reminders, credit card processing, electronic statement processing, electronic claim processing and claim status, real-time eligibility and benefits verification, electronic remittance advice, dental claim attachments, custom websites, marketing, offsite backup storage, Practice Booster for coding strategies, HIPAA-compliant email, cloud-based phone system through Mango Voice, and more.

With all the dental industry changes in 2020, this is a significant time to introduce other dentists to XLDent. We’ve created XLDent Referrals to make that process rewarding and easy. Here are five simple steps to referring to XLDent. 

 

Step 1: Follow the Rewards

Referring dentists to us should be rewarding. If you refer another practice to XLDent, we want to give you 15% off your annual subscription fees. XLDent Referrals is our new program that allows your practice to receive 15% off your yearly subscription fees each time a dentist you referred pays for a year of service in advance.

 

Step 2: Share the Resources

Fellow dentists are sure to want to know why you chose XLDent. We hope you’ll be able to share how our software has helped your practice in your own words. We also hope you’ll be able to say that our company has been a great partner to your practice and that you’ve noticed that we dedicate ourselves to your success. You can get more inspiration on why referrals matter and how to make them in our blog post Software Referrals for Dental Practices.

 

Of course, you’ll also want to mention that as an XLDent client, you can get them a discount! They’ll get 10% off their annual subscription fees when they pay for a year in advance.

 

Step 3: Show Them the Start

We’ve curated a lot of content on XLDent.com to help dentists learn more about how XLDent can breathe some fresh air into their workflow and help them make their practice as profitable as possible. While each practice we work with is unique, generally established practices are looking for a practice management system that can grow with them while new practices are looking to launch with a strategic plan and experts’ help. No matter where a practice is now, we can help guide them toward a successful dental practice on our Getting Started page at xldent.com/getting-started.

 

When the dentist you refer is ready to learn more, ask them to click the request a Live Demo at the top of any page on our website and specify your name in the “Best Time to Reach You” box.

 

Step 4: Claim a Referral 

To claim a dentist that you referred to XLDent, send your colleague’s contact information to referrals@xldent.com. We’ll be able to match up your referral through their demo request form. Thanks for referring to XLDent!

 

Step 5: Enjoy the Rewards

Your practice will earn 15% off your annual subscription fees once your colleague commits to one year of subscription and pays in full. They’ll also get 10% off their annual subscription fees when they pay for a year in advance. We look forward to working with you both for years to come.

Software Referrals for Dental Practices

Posted September 11, 2020 by Beth

XLDent_SoftwareReferrals

 

No one knows referrals like dentists know referrals. Dentists make referrals based on the patient’s unique needs and based on the consulting or specialist dentist’s education, training, and experience. In dentistry, referrals are a critical part of choosing the right provider and receiving the best care. The same is true of referrals for the tools you use in your practice, including software like XLDent. We recently launched XLDent Referrals because we recognize how mutually beneficial it is to grow our company with dentists similar to our successful clients.

When finding new software for your practice, you will consider many different platforms, products, features, and capabilities. A referral from someone who uses the software that you are considering is a pivotal way to choose which investment you’ll make in your practice.

Choosing software is not just selecting a product based on features–it is also appointing a software company that will play a significant role in your practice’s success. Another clinician’s recommendation is invaluable when looking for the right fit. We have collected some of the biggest reasons we believe referrals are essential considerations when selecting the right software for your dental practice’s health. Among them are the many reasons that XLDent clients refer to us.
