ATLANTA, Georgia--Developed with a practicing orthodontist, OrthoTrac's orthodontic practice-management software is celebrating a 30th year of service for Carestream Dental customers throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, and western Europe.

“Working directly with clinicians and their teams to develop OrthoTrac ensures that the software keeps pace with the unique and evolving needs of orthodontic practices,” said Susan Whitt, Carestream Dental’s senior product manager.

OrthoTrac offers integration for practice management, imaging, digital radiography and electronic services. It easily integrates with Carestream Dental’s digital imaging software and products, including panoramic and cephalometric systems such as the 8000C system, 3D imaging systems such as the CS 9300C, the 1500 intraoral camera, and intraoral sensors like the RVG 6500 sensor. Integration with these products provides practices with access to clinical information.

Additionally, OrthoTrac’s eServices automate and streamline essential tasks related to insurance claims and payment processing. OrthoTrac continues to aim to provide practices with increased efficiency and productivity, and it helps office managers run a financially fit practice through intuitively designed financial reporting.

“For 30 years, OrthoTrac has consistently delivered groundbreaking innovations in orthodontics, and we continue to strive toward the next enhancement, our cloud solution,” Whitt said.

“Launching at the 2012 American Association of Orthodontists Annual Session, our cloud solution offers all the features and functionality that already define OrthoTrac, advanced by the vast benefits of the cloud, such as minimized upfront costs and greater flexibility for practices. It has been an honor to endeavor alongside orthodontics for three decades, and while we celebrate our history, we always keep our eye towards the future.”
