ABELDent CS (Cloud Server) Features Overview
The Patient Manager tracks the entire patient visit from arrival to departure in real time – helping you create a better patient experience and reduce staff stress.
You can quickly see the patients you’re expecting today that haven’t yet arrived, patients who have ‘Arrived’ and are in the waiting area (there’s a field that displays the patient's wait-time and turns red if that time exceeds your defined acceptable level), patients ‘In Progress’, and patients that have completed treatment and left the dental office. Selecting a patient in the Patient Manager gives you immediate access to additional information via the sidebar – no need to go elsewhere.
Health History is visible from the Patient Manager sidebar so you'll know when patients have completed or updated their Health History. They can do this at your office using a kiosk or tablet, or from home to provide the essential information you need prior to treatment.
The Patient Dashboard will save you time by showing you complete patient details and historical profiles from a single screen view. No need to navigate between multiple screens to see patients' appointments, unscheduled appointments, financial status and insurance information.
Also, when you update information for one patient, relevant family members’ records are also automatically updated saving your time and ensuring data integrity.
The Insurance screen displays patient’s insurance plan coverage by procedure category in an easy to read pie chart.
The amount of coverage remaining and the number of scaling units available is shown to assist with patient communication and treatment plan scheduling.
The Treatment Manager easily retrieves patients that chose not to pre-book their recall appointment so you can contact them at the appropriate time based on their due date and coverage. You can also locate and prioritize outstanding unscheduled treatment so it never gets lost. Filter by provider, required procedures or other criteria to keep the schedule full and your days productive and predictable. Once you create the search criteria that you find most effective, you can save it as a template and use it again anytime you need it!
Furthermore, patients’ availabilities, preferences, follow-up attempts and past cancelled/missed/changed appointments are all tracked and monitored with warning messages to prevent you from booking failed appointments. An “At A Glance” panel is available on the right side of the screen with icons that provide quick access to various areas of the patient’s chart when you need it.
The Treatment Manager also integrates with ABELDent Portal so you can more efficiently reach patients who require treatment via email and text messages.
The Treatment screen enables you to enter treatment for the day, view future appointments, manage ‘unbooked appointments’ and enter planned treatment with many built-in time saving steps.
Financial Transactions can be viewed in a variety of formats depending on user preference for easy tracking of payments against charges. You can even view the breakdown of how much insurance will cover simply by hovering the mouse over the specific treatment entry.
All payments and adjustments are entered directly from this one screen! It’s also quick and easy to edit insurance expected amounts to reflect updated information from electronic claims.
The Clinical Chart delivers administrative synergies that are not possible with paper records. Integration with billing, treatment planning and appointment scheduling functions reduces data entry and the potiential for errors. You can view both the upper and lower arches on the odontogram and important notes all on the same screen. There are many customizable features such as background colour and viewing preferences depending on user workflows. Clinical notes entry is fast and it’s easy to create custom templates to suit individual providers. Clinical data, once certified, becomes a permanent and secure part of each patient record.
The Perio Chart enables you to record measurements for Recession, Pocket Depth, Attachments and Furcation as well as plot conditions such as bleeding, suppuration, plaque, calculus, and mobility. You can compare results for up to 5 different exams to evaluate patient progress.
ABELDent's clinical functions are included at no additional cost so there is no new software to purchase once you make the decision to go paperless.
The Scheduler serves as the administrative hub of your ABELDent system: all day-to-day tasks are directly linked to each patient’s appointment with one click!
You can configure the appointment book to your specific practice parameters and scheduling requirements for optimal search and booking efficiency. Productivity tools such as Appointment Request Tracking (as shown), Ideal Day Blocking, Production Goal Setting and Short Notice Tracking all contribute to more efficient and profitable scheduling. The system also tracks a patients’ appointment history so that costly cancellations and missed appointments are prevented. Importantly, the ABELDent Scheduler has a Privacy mode which hides confidential information in high traffic areas of the practice.
Reporting and Analytics ABELDent's Standard Reports help you track and measure practice productivity in dozens of areas. Monitor practice growth, demographic trends and provider capacity and productivity. Check recall retention, compare production between two time periods, ensure that you meet collections targets and much more.
ABEL ARPA (Advanced Reporting & Practice Analytics) leverages the amazing reporting capabilities of Microsoft Power BI. Microsoft Power BI is a business analytics platform that monitors and reads important data from the ABELDent database. It provides tools to quickly analyze, transform and visualize data into meaningful reports, key performance indicators (KPIs) and dashboards. Use the advanced reports created by ABELDent or we can help you build your own custom reports that extract and format the date you need.
ABELDent's Document & Letter Manager improve patient communication and eliminate the need for paper document storage.
Document Manager equips you to make incoming paper documents (or paper forms you may still be using like Medical History or Informed Consent) part of the patient’s electronic record. With the Scan function you can store and organize these items and with the Import File function you can add emails and documents already in electronic form received from outside sources. You can also add document attributes for future reference.
Letter Manager is accessible right from the Patient's file. It stores letter templates that you can personalize by automatically merging data from the ABELDent database using keywords. You also have the option to have a copy of the created letter automatically stored in the patient’s file via the Document Manager.
System Security, ABELDent’s Authorization Manager establishes individual user IDs and passwords and can restrict access to specific program functions and sensitive data based on user defined roles.
Authorization Manager also records and reports changes in data including edited or deleted financial records as well as keeps your patient information safe and private by complying with Regulatory body requirements.

As first-time users, we find the program easy to navigate and when we do have a question the built-in Help often provides a quick answer.
