Features of the ABELDent Clinical and Practice Management Software

Appointment Scheduling

The appointment schedule is the administrative hub of your ABELDent system - Day to day tasks are all just a click away! Whether you have 1 provider or 45, our scheduler can be configured to your specifications. It offers a variety of display options for single and multiple users, colour coding by appointment type and/or by provider, premedication and appointment status flags and much more.

ABELDent scheduler has a Privacy mode which hides confidential information in high traffic areas of the practice.

Clinical Charting

ABELDent's electronic charting is comprehensive and can easily replace charting on paper. Clinical data, once certified, is a permanent and secure part of the patient record. ABELDent's Chart is feature-rich and easy to use. Post conditions and planned treatment to a secure, permanent record. Create and track multi-phase, multiple option treatment plans. Maintain thorough, legible progress notes in just seconds using a customizable library of situation-specific notes.


Improved in-office communication is one of the greatest benefits of a networked ABELDent system. ABEL-OC, our easy to use office messaging system is better than a hard-wired communication system and is included FREE with our software. Inform clinicians when a patient arrives, the dentist when a hygienist is ready for a patient check and appropriate staff when a patient will be late or clinical staff need extra time with a patient. All of this can be done with ABEL-OC.

Treatment Management

Prevent unscheduled treatment from getting lost in your charts. Track outstanding treatment and filter by provider, procedure or other criteria to focus your scheduling efforts. Track scheduling preferences, follow-up attempts and your patient's past cancelled/missed/changed appointments to help keep your schedule full and your days predictable.

Electronic Claims

Most practices agree that electronic claims solutions have increased their financial efficiency and increased their ability to collect from patients. ABELDent is compatible with iTrans claims submission, modem claims submission or a combination of both.

Financials And Insurance

ABELDent can adapt to the financial needs of almost any practice. It supports several models for sharing revenue among owner dentists, associate dentists and hygienists. ABELDent provides excellent support for insurance assignment and is equally effective for practices that do not accept assignment. ABELDent uses powerful and flexible financial tracking that far surpasses the industry standard. Patients have fewer questions and pay more promptly when they can view their financial obligation on a per procedure basis.

Image Management

ABELDent captures and stores images from a wide variety of sources. As an independent company, we integrate with products from many vendors so that you can choose the products that best meet your needs and budget.

No digital x-rays? No problem. In ABELDent you can store intraoral photos, Clinical photos, or digital films forwarded from another practice.

Patient Records

The ABELDent patient record is secure and easy to use. All information about a patient is in one easy to navigate record- no changing “modules” to access one person’s data. Authorized users have quick access to appointments, treatment history, insurance information, financial and clinical records. ABELDent's user interface keeps important information close at hand. For example, the At A Glance panel displays contact, treatment and financial information for a patient while you move through the patient's record.

System Security

ABELDent Authorization Manager allows you to control and track which users can access dozens of system features. ABELDent tracks and reports important changes in data including changed or deleted financial records.
