Back in August Mango Dental Software
first announced plans to release a Mac OS X-native dental practice management package. Now the company has released a demo version available for download from
the Web site.
Mango is a suite that combines patient tracking, billing and insurance processing, along with electronic claims processing and radiography. You can also configure Mango for prescription generation and integration with Palm OS-based PDAs.
The demo that’s available for download now runs on both Mac OS X and Mac OS 9, according to the company. They’re releasing it to get feedback from interested practices. Mango Dental Software expects to begin sales and installations of the software in the first quarter of 2004. Pricing hasn’t yet been set for the product; the company expects to finalize it by the end of the year.
