Popular Software simplifies administrative tasks, improves practice productivity, enhances patient care and aligns with CS brand
ATLANTA – Carestream Dental released CS SoftDent v15.0, the latest version of the popular practice management software. The updated version features the new Scheduler, the most advanced scheduling software in the oral health industry.

For nearly 30 years, SoftDent has been responsible for delivering the tools practices need to effectively manage their time, including intuitive appointment scheduling, charting, and detailed financial reporting. For the first time, the software is being introduced as CS SoftDent to better align with the Carestream Dental brand. Not only does CS SoftDent serve as a reliable foundation for practices’ front office teams, but it is also fully compatible with Carestream Dental’s imaging software, allowing for easy access to patients’ diagnostic images.

In addition to the features customers have come to expect from CS SoftDent, the new Scheduler is designed to give practice administrators a better handle on the interruptive environment of the front desk. The Scheduler is intuitive and easy to use, delivering multi-tasking capabilities so users can easily resume partially completed tasks. Practitioners can add and schedule patients in one, simple step with the advanced drag and drop functionality.

Further simplifying the scheduling process, CS SoftDent automatically checks for duplicate entries. With the AutoScheduler feature, users can input appointment criteria (desired provider, times, and days) to immediately view all available appointments.

Improving patient care, the Scheduler puts critical data, including outstanding treatments and recare needs, right at practitioners’ fingertips with the flyout feature. New patients are easily added, as the software automatically carries over information to other entry points of the patient file, eliminating mistakes.

Additionally, the Scheduler streamlines communication, allowing practitioners to access patient contact information and email individuals directly within the software. For added convenience, users have the ability to customize the Scheduler’s display according to their own preferences.

“The oral health industry is a demanding field, and practices are constantly seeking ways to streamline their daily tasks so they can focus on what matters most – their patients,” said Kathy Ford, vice president of product line management for Carestream Dental. “The Scheduler integrates within the workflow that teams are accustomed to, simplifying routine tasks, boosting practice productivity and ultimately enhancing patient care.”

CS SoftDent v15.0 also features the new Software Update System, which provides users the choice to automatically receive the latest software updates to practices’ computers, eliminating tedious manual downloading. This feature ensures CS SoftDent customers have access to all the latest features available in the software.

For current CS SoftDent customers with the Advantage Plan, the latest version of the software, including the new Scheduler, is available as an upgrade free of charge. CS SoftDent users can visit to request that the software update be shipped to them.
