Accessed at, the software includes more than 60 professional 3-D videos, and can be viewed on a PC, Mac, iPad, or iPhone.

More than 8,300 dental professional have registered to use CurveEd.

“A Spanish language option in CurveEd provides doctors with Spanish-speaking patients the opportunity to take advantage of our free service,” said Jim Pack, CEO of Curve Dental.

“Since we released CurveEd in August 2010 thousands of doctors are using our software to educate their patients. Many offices don't use patient education software because of high licensing costs combined with the heavy chore of installing, training, supporting, upgrading, and backing up of additional server-based software. CurveEd is free, and because it is Web-based, CurveEd simplifies the experience for the dental professional; there’s no installation, upgrade, or backup worries and the software is so easy to use there’s no need for expensive training or support. Providing the service at no charge makes it even easier for the doctor, hygienist or dental assistant to put it to use to the benefit of the patient and the practice.”

CurveEd provides dental patient education videos in 3-D in 11 different categories. Each video is professionally narrated, and covers a range of topics from restorative procedures to cosmetic procedures to endodontics and is available in English or Spanish.

Created by a team of dentists, videos are accurate with regard to anatomy and procedure, but are tempered with a light, narrative, and artistic style. Patient education helps the dental professional build trust by providing their patients with an understanding of their current oral health condition and proposed treatment and outcomes.

CurveEd allows the dental team to show patient education videos within the practice or send a Web link to their patient via email. When a video link is sent by email, CurveEd tracks what video link was sent to which patient and whether or not the patient opened the email and clicked on the link to the video. Detailed tracking can help the practice build a comprehensive patient history and show proper jurisprudence.

To access the software, navigate to and create a free account. Once an account has been created, access the patient education library from any computer with Internet access and a browser.

Registration requires a name and email address. Initial registration provides the practice with access to about one- third of the library. By referring CurveEd to two colleagues, the doctor or team member will have access to the entire library while giving other dental professionals the opportunity to use the free service in their practices.

“I’ve been asked many times if the software really is free,” said Pack. “It really is free, which is remarkable given the value it can provide to any practice. A better-educated patient base increases treatment plan acceptance ratios, which increases a practice’s productivity. CurveEd’s mission is twofold: First to provide a valuable tool that can
advance proper oral care and treatment, and second, to give more doctors and staff a personal experience with Web-based dental software.”
