Alpha Dental's executive team faced a challenge during its rapid expansion across two states. Their current software, EagleSoft, was not up to par and failed to meet their increasing demands. The limitations of EagleSoft were obstructing the centralization and streamlining of their operations, leading to inefficiencies and communication gaps that their growing dental practice could not sustain.


Determined to overcome these challenges, The Alpha Dental team conducted extensive research to find a more scalable solution. They searched for dental practice management software and found CareStack the most suitable option. Recognizing the comprehensive and advanced features of CareStack, they confidently made the transition, aligning their practice with software designed to empower their next phase of growth, standardization, and operational optimization.

I can run 10 offices at the same time.

There was a point in time when Alpha wanted to grow, and with the software we had previously, the growth wasn’t there. Now I can run 10 offices at the same time without having to go to 10 offices.

The transition to CareStack transformed Alpha Dental’s operational landscape. The all-in-one bundle of capabilities that CareStack offered helped Alpha Dental to centralize activities across their locations, access real-time information from multiple locations, identify the gaps, and quickly roll out and communicate solutions. This significantly boosted their subsequent growth and helped them acquire and add more locations to their group.

Some key steps that ensured a seamless transition from Dentrix to CareStack:
