Protecting your practice from hackers

We are all experiencing constant dangerous threats in our digital lives with ongoing attempts to phish for login credentials, personal details, banking information, and more. These threats come in the form of email scams, suspicious texts, payroll and wire fraud, etc. Think about how many you receive personally. Now multiply that by the number of staff you employ who could unknowingly allow hackers access to your orthodontic practice’s network and systems with one wrong click.

Keeping patient and sensitive data safe

Our robust Black Talon Academy Cybersecurity Awareness Training program significantly reduces your “click-risk” and empowers your staff to recognize well-disguised malicious attempts to breach your network. Regular training tailored to help each team member understand and identify the latest cyberthreats within their daily workflows in a practice is crucial. All team members must know the signs of phishing, the subtleties of social engineering scams, and the importance of strong password habits. Taking time to analyze links and emails for malicious intent must become second nature for everyone.

Staff training should be your first line of defense in the cyber war

Significantly reduce your practice’s exposure to a debilitating attack by cultivating a culture of awareness. Empower your team, fortify your defenses, and proactively protect with informed awareness.

DentalMonitoring with DM Insights

Convenience for patients, clinical control for doctors 

DentalMonitoring gives orthodontists the power to monitor their patient’s treatment progress remotely. Doctors are now able to have weekly updates, using scans created with the ScanBoxpro, the patient’s smartphone, and the DentalMonitoring patient app. The platform monitors 130+ intraoral observations including hygiene, gum disease, wire passivity, aligner fit, and tooth movement. Unlike other monitoring systems that add more demands on a busy clinician’s time, the intraoral observations from DentalMonitoring are automatically delivered to the practice. Notifications and reminders can be automated for all patients, which makes encouraging patient compliance more effective. The DentalMonitoring app also improves direct communication between patients and the practice staff by eliminating the problems of missed calls and voice messages. Instead, patients text the practice, and the staff knows exactly how to respond because they have real-time observations about what is happening inside the patient’s mouth.

The simplicity of remote scanning, which works for all orthodontic treatment types, phases, and appliance brands, helps doctors and staff streamline their schedules. Regular scanning makes treatment more convenient for patients while providing even more clinical control for orthodontists.

Every piece of data from remote monitoring flows into DM Insights, an industry-first data hub that clinicians use to discover patterns and trends in their practice. Doctors utilize DM Insights real-time data analytics to identify recurring issues and take action, retrain staff, improve procedures, or compare the effectiveness of certain appliances over time.

Dolphin: A leader in Cloud computing

 Dolphin has consistently anticipated evolving orthodontic practice trends for more than 35 years, and we’re proud to have been the first to offer Cloud computing more than 20 years ago:

  • 2003: AnywhereDolphin, allowing record-sharing over the internet.
  • 2012: Dolphin Cloud Sessions.
  • 2018: Dolphin Cloud Subscription.
  • 2023: Dolphin Blue, browser-based Dolphin software.
  • Along the way we’ve introduced Dolphin Mobile, Dolphin MyOrthodontist, New Patient Online Forms & Scheduling, and Concierge.

What is Cloud Computing anyway?

Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server. Your software is automatically updated, and your data is regularly backed up.

Dolphin Cloud Sessions and Cloud Subscription

Dolphin Cloud Sessions is a hosted solution allowing you to enjoy full-featured Dolphin Imaging and Management software in the cloud. Cloud Subscription is a SaaS model that essentially lets you “subscribe” to the software rather than “buy” it. 

Dolphin Blue

Dolphin Blue is a collection of Dolphin software modules in a web-based application. These modules include:

  • Dolphin Blue Practice: an orthodontic practice management system
  • Dolphin Blue Imaging: a patient imaging system for capturing, storing, and presenting patient images.
  • Dolphin Aquarium: a library of patient education videos

Both solutions seamlessly support practices with multiple locations. Visit www.dolphinimaging.com for more info.

Carriere Motion Pro: the new standard in bite correction

We’ve taken fast, predictable, and discreet bite correction from revolutionary to essential!

The Carriere® Motion Pro™ bite corrector1 is the newest addition to the Motion portfolio and is fitted to teeth to treat the anteroposterior dimension of a patient’s occlusion, allowing clinicians to achieve a Class I platform within an average of 3 to 6 months2 of treatment and before placing brackets or aligners.

With the unique ability to treat both Class II and Class III patients with one device, Carriere Motion Pro bite corrector features a custom-designed drop-in hook to enhance treatment versatility. The wider reinforced cuspid pad hook ensures a consistent distribution of elastic forces, while the hook’s deep undercut simplifies elastic engagements and effectively secures the Carriere Motion Force™ oral elastics, a portfolio of products designed to work seamlessly with Motion appliances to provide optimal results. The latest addition to the portfolio, the Carriere Motion Force 3™ Elastics, will be available soon.

The Carriere Motion Pro bite corrector also features a built-in scribe line, flat faces, straight edges, and a recessed dimple, helping to provide intuitive and accurate placement. This efficient design provides fast and predictable treatment, and the condyle-shaped joint is designed to facilitate more natural and controlled movement. With more than a million confident smiles treated using Motion, the path to a new standard is here.

  1. Motion Pro bite corrector patent pending. Not available in all countries. See your local distributor for more information.

Custom digital workflow your patients expect, and your practice deserves

The KLOwen advantage in orthodontic practice

 Conventional orthodontics requires a reactive approach to treating cases. The orthodontist must continuously diagnose and manually adjust the appliance and wait until the next visit to see if the teeth are tracking correctly. The outcome is longer treatment times, more appointments, and increased stress in the practice.

The full custom difference

KLOwen is at the forefront of transforming orthodontic practices with our full custom digital solution proven to deliver up to 41% reduced treatment time and up to 45% reduced appointments.* Our full custom digital approach empowers orthodontists and their teams with unparalleled control over their time, treatment outcomes, and the patient experience.

Each patient’s orthodontic needs are unique. Leveraging advanced digital technology and a full custom portfolio, we work closely with the orthodontist to design customized treatment plans for each patient that include a tailored bracket prescription for each tooth, ensuring maximum control and a perfect fit for all three orders.

Reduced treatment time, reduced appointments, reduced stress — we provide the tools and support needed to elevate the conventional fixed appliance treatment experience for your practice and your patients. Learn more and connect with us at www.klowenortho.com.
