We made the switch to EXACT for a few reasons, one being the fact you do not have to fill any spaces in the book, the short notice system will automatically do this for you. The system is also able to inform you that you have fallen below target NHS or private and it grows as your practice grows there is no limit to it. Almost all dental software companies charge the practice to upgrade your system to its newer version, but SOE offer this to all its customers for free and is almost as easy to upgrade as your software on your iPhone with no bugs or hacks.
I encourage dental practices to bite the bullet and transfer to SOE, especially if they have outgrown their current software or like myself are constantly on the phone to them trying to correct errors, with anything in life of course there will be teething problems (pardon the pun) change is inevitable in dental so why not make your life harder for 2 months but have years of satisfaction. Practice managers have a lot of stress to deal with daily, take the worry of computer software and performance of the list.
