Curve Dental buys patient education software firm

Web-based dental software developer Curve Dental has acquired Orasphere, a developer of dental patient education videos that can be viewed on a dentist's website, a computer, a DVD, or an Apple iPod Touch.

"We intend to leverage the Orasphere library by hosting it in the cloud -- or on the Web -- thus removing the need for expensive servers, tedious installation, and risky upgrades," said Jim Pack, CEO of Curve Dental, in a press release.

Curve Dental will integrate Orasphere videos into its Web-based dental software in content-sensitive situations.

"By anticipating the doctor's needs, we are creating dental software that is highly efficient and, because it is Web-based, is more convenient and flexible," Pack said. "Moreover, we're offering this service to our Web-based dental software customers at no additional cost."

Curve Dental will continue to sell Orasphere as a standalone dental patient education system via the Orasphere website. The system is available in four different formats: DVD, PC, Web, and iPod Touch, and includes more than 72 different videos in 13 categories. The Orasphere library was developed by Stacy Hunt, B.D.S., and Tom Gallivan Jr., D.D.S..
