A dental office is a very complex environment. There is the usual office related activities such as accounting, inventory and personnel. There is also the added activities of x-rays, exams, and security. Computerizing a dental office can be a complex task involving multiple vendors and organizations. Many companies specialize in combing services to make the process easier. Unfortunately none of those companies work for you! Remember that the advise of a salesman, while possible technical correct, is biased towards making a sale.
