Practice Management Software Builds Referral Networks for Periodontists

Dentistry Today


The OurPerioTeam cloud-based software platform from SkyDent Technologies is specifically designed to help periodontists expand their referral network, comanage patients, and build trust among referring general practitioner dentists.

“The concept for OurPerioTeam is the result of my decades of coaching and advising dental specialists throughout the United States. They needed an easy to use referral management platform to implement my recommendations, but it didn’t exist,” said SkyDent cofounder Deb Roberge.

OurPerioTeam is the result of three years of extensive beta testing and input from prominent periodontists and their team members, according to SkyDent. It uses sophisticated yet easy to use technology that simplifies the patient referral process, treatment planning, and patient management, SkyDent says, while streamlining internal and external team communications.

“OurPerioTeam will keep the specialist and GP completely in touch while eliminating multiple back and forth phone calls,” said Linda Miles, consultant and author. “What’s more, it’s the most complete periodontist software on the market that does a dozen other things beyond what the typical dashboard or typical practice management software do.”

OurPerioTeam’s features include:

  • One-click patient referral: directly from the general dentist to the periodontist, eliminating paper referral forms and ensuring patient follow-through 
  • Secure messaging portal: easy to use, HIPAA-compliant messaging including images, radiographs, and text that can be used by doctors, team members, labs, and others, generating text and/or email notifications when messages are sent 
  • Free for referring dentists: No licensing fee for referring dentists, no matter how large the periodontist’s referral network 
  • Real-time, anytime patient status: One-click access to current treatment status of all mutual patients, eliminating time-consuming phone calls between administrative teams
  • No complicated dashboard: Instead, OurPerioTeam provides useful and easy to read graphic and textual reports 
  • Secure HIPAA compliance: Cloud-based software is automatically updated and maintained
  • Easy to install and learn: OurPerioTeam can be up and running and contributing to the bottom line very quickly
  • Geo-targeted marketing module: Periodontists can proactively and cost-effectively build their referral networks within a selected radius of their offices internally without hiring outside marketing assistance

OurPerioTeam costs $295 per month with a three-month minimum. There is no charge for referring dentists. SkyDent also is offering a special launch price of three months for the price of two, or one free month.
