South Street Dental is a well established, family-run five surgery mixed dental practice, with an in-house dental lab and 14 members of staff. The practice also offer Orthodontic work to both private and NHS patients.
"When COVID-19 forced us to close, we realised we needed to improve how we communicate with patients and Carestream R4 didn't have much scope to do help with this. There was also very limited potential for remote working. When we started to look at alternative management software systems, it hit home that we were paying a lot of money for quite a poor service".
Jennifer Bianchi, South Street
