QSIDental® has supported more than 100 thousand dental professionals since 1978

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 12, 2018-- NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXGN), the leading provider of ambulatory-only healthcare technology solutions, recognizes a milestone of 40years supporting dental professionals by providing electronic dental records (EDR) and practice management (PM) solutions. This growing healthcare segment includes tens of thousands of general dentists, pediatric dentists, endodontists, periodontists, prosthodontists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontists and hygienists who have trusted QSIDental for their EDR and PM needs.

QSIDental® provides an integrated EDR and all-in-one PM solution including charting, imaging and clinical patient record data management. Launched in 1978, this first-of-its-kind solution led the market with its ability to streamline data management and quickly became the industry’s premier PM tool. Since its introduction, QSIDental has provided tailored solutions to meet the needs of dental group practices of all sizes, including some of the largest in the country.

“QSIDental practice management solutions transformed the industry with its advanced office operations,” said Grant Sadler, president of GMS Dental Centers. “Its cutting-edge capabilities give dental practices like ours an advantage in data management and improved patient experience. As the original user and client, I’ve seen how QSIDental has shaped the industry, pioneering data management services that streamline operations and enable dental practices to grow.”

According to the Health Policy Institute (HPI), the dental profession is projected to increase through 2033.1The American Dental Association (ADA) reports that dental service organizations (DSOs) will continue to grow – especially among new dentists – as more practitioners seek to offload the responsibility of running a business to focus on patient care.2

“While dental practices are evolving, practitioners have to remain focused on building patient relationships based on trust and quality care. Our job is to ensure dental professionals have tools that relieve the burden of practice management and allow them to develop meaningful relationships with their patients,” said John S. Beck, chief solutions officer and executive vice president, NextGen Healthcare. “Dental practices are facing a number of challenges, including reduced reimbursement rates, increasing competition and reduced profit margins. Many solo practitioners join Dental Service Organizations in order to combine business operations. A solution like QSIDental helps them manage their practices even more efficiently.”
