WAUCONDA, Illinois—Liptak Dental Services has opened a new franchise location to serve northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. To read more about Liptak Dental, go to Liptak.Liptak Dental Services is a dental technology consulting firm that specializes in computer support, practice management software training, and managing web presence. Liptak Dental provides IT support, as well as a backup solution and staff training. The new Liptak location, which is owned by Jeff Stonecliffe, covers Lake, McHenry, and Boone counties in Illinois and Kenosha, Racine, Wadsworth, and Rock counties in Wisconsin. Liptak franchise owner Stonecliffe has a B.S. in computer science from Northern Illinois University and an MBA from Lake Forest Graduate School of Management. Stonecliffe has 22 years of experience managing large-scale technology projects, and has a keen interest in partnering with small businesses to help them get the most out of their information technology investments.“Our consultants are senior-level computer professionals who have been trained in dental technology—from practice management software to digital X-ray equipment,” said Stonecliffe. “As a nationwide network of offices, if we have a particularly challenging computer problem, we have Liptak offices throughout the country to provide ongoing support. Most IT companies do not have this resource.” Stonecliffe explains that many practices struggle to adopt the new technology in the dental world. “Technology is moving at a break-neck speed, and most practices are struggling to keep up,” he said. “Even if the dentist and office staff are confident knowing how to use their digital X-ray or their software, they are at a loss when something goes wrong—and something always goes wrong. It’s the nature of computers.” Stonecliffe says that one of his goals is zero downtime for his customers. “I want to be able to solve computer problems immediately for my clients,” he said. “I never want networking, hardware, or software issues to lead to rescheduling appointments—or worse yet—losing valuable data.” Kenny Schwing, president and CEO of Liptak Dental Services, explains that each Liptak franchise location receives ongoing education on computer and dental technology. “As a network, all of the Liptak locations share our success stories and our challenges,” said Schwing. “This allows us to do our best work for our clients and to make sure they are spending technology dollars wisely.”Liptak Dental Services in Wauconda, Ill., can be reached at (877) 593-1964 or by email at [email protected] more information, go to comment on this topic, go to
