CurveEd software released

Aug. 24, 2010
CurveEd includes 3D videos that address facets of dental care at no cost.

OREM, Utah—Curve Dental, developers of Web-based dental software, has announced the release of CurveEd, free Web-based patient education software available to dental professionals in August 2010.

The software includes more than 60 professional 3D videos n 11 different categories. It can be viewed on a PC, Mac, iPad, or iPhone.

“We make dental software a simple experience,” said Jim Pack, CEO of Curve Dental.

“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 solves all those problems. It 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.”

Each video is professionally narrated, covering a range of topics from restorative procedures to cosmetic procedures to endodontics.

Created by a team of dentists, videos are accurate with regard to anatomy and procedure and are tempered with a light narrative and artistic style. Patient education helps the dental professional build trust by providing 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 patient via e-mail. When a video link is sent by e-mail, CurveEd tracks what video link was sent to which patient and whether or not the patient opened the e-mail and clicked on the link to the video. Detailed tracking can help the practice build a comprehensive patient history and show proper jurisprudence.

As a Web-based application, CurveEd can be used on a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone and other similar mobile devices. 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 little more than a name and e-mail 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 instant 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.”

Dentists can call (888) 910-4376 or visit for more information.
