    Cloud-based software sinks teeth into patient info

    Slim Dental, a New York City-based dental practice, uses technology to drive improvements in recruiting, human resources management and marketing. But the real game-changer lies in using technology to improve customer service, says founder Stephen Lim.

    Doctors can write their notes and see their schedules, X-rays and patient records from anywhere by using cloud-based, patient-management software. It allows them to focus on providing top-notch patient care while at the office.

    Employees use the cloud-based system to pull up records at any of the practice''s three locations, which provides convenience for patients who move or change jobs within the city, Lim says.

    Tip: Move to a cloud-based system to untether employees from their computers and filing cabinets, increasing both customer convenience and productivity.

    I haven't had any work done by him, just two consults regarding work done by other dentists and he was attentive, efficient and very down to earth, practical and helpful in terms of recommending next steps.

    About Front Desk: This is a great office. It's very efficient, they are respectful of your time, and money, and I greatly appreciate that. Very well run.

    I know this doctor: 6 months

    Love all the dentists in this practice. I saw Dr. Park this time, and she's great. The front office is also really nice and professional. I don't have dental insurance right now and they were really transparent about their fees and realistic about what procedures I could safely skip at this appointment.

    About Front Desk: Professional, helpful, friendly.

    Had to go back to have my filling checked because my mouth hurt. I'll have to go back again because it has been a week and it still hurts when I floss or eat (both hot and cold foods).

    About Front Desk: Always professional and helpful.
