MacPractice has announced its eponymous practice management software for dentist’s offices — MacPractice DDS — is now capable of incorporating 3D dental charting. The Complete Exam (TCE) has announced a partnership with the company.
TCE makes a Windows product that provides 3D dental charting, and it now works with MacPractice on Intel-based Macs using Parallels Desktop, the virtual machine software that enables Mac OS X users to run Windows and other X86-native operating systems from within a window on Mac OS X itself.
What’s more, TCE and MacPractice are working to develop a Mac OS X-native version of the software incorporated into MacPractice itself.
So while both applications are separate (and, indeed, working on separate operating systems) for now, they do cooperate with each other. A dentist using MacPractice can open and create a new patient chart automatically in TCE. A click on TCE will return treatment plans and procedures to MacPractice.
