New Zealand based software firm Orasphere acquired by US based CurveDental

US based CurveDental has acquired New Zealand based software firm, Orasphere. Orasphere is a dental software developer and produces Dental patient education videos that are watched online, on DVDs etc. CurveDental expects the acquisition of the New Zealand firm to increase its product offerings through the provision of its existing state of the art educational resources.

CurveDental hopes to be able to offer patients enhanced information on the Web with regard to Dental software etc. CurveDental chief executive officer, Jim Pack said the acquisition will complement the firm’s offering, providing quality and innovation for the provision of better services. Other than that, Pack said Orasphere’s team, with their experience and expertise in the dental profession comes as a great addition to CurveDental’s existing team.

CurveDental will use the library resources of Orasphere for hosting in the cloud sector and the web and therefore eliminating the need for expensive servers, installation and risky upgrades. CurveDental hopes to use Orasphere’s embedding videos in offering information on web based dental software to explain and unravel sensitive information. For instance, for treatments that include aspects such as creating a crown, then such videos can be used by the doctor and the patient so the patient has all the necessary information required, said the firm.

According to Pack, it is about empowering the patient with the necessary information for the various aspects of their services. That will subsequently lead to the creation of effective dental software that is based on the web and very flexible. As such, such software will seek convenience for the patient and effectiveness, said Packman.

Curve Dental offers Web-based software and dental services related to dental practice in the United States and Canada. The company is a privately held company based in Orem, Utah, with offices in Calgary, Canada, and Dunedin, New Zealand. In addition, Curve delivers office management via the web such as Dental billing software for offices, allowing doctors to access their patient data from anywhere at any time; from home, work or play. CurveDental boasts data security that comes with its practice management software.

Orasphere is a library of over 70 videos that a dentist can use to educate patients about the proposed treatment. Orasphere allows patients to see reality and ensures patients have a better understanding of dental procedures.  With offices now in 3 countries New Zealand, U.S.A., and Canada, Orasphere is offered both as videos for the computers in operatories or reception area, and as integrated video links in website.
