Data Conversions



What is data conversion?

Electronic data conversion is a process that will transfer all pertinent patient and practice information from your old software to your new software, avoiding the long, laborious task of manually re-entering all the data, patient by patient.


What are the most common challenges of data conversion?

When it comes to converting, because all software programs store data differently, there is a chance that not all your data will convert accurately (or at all). This doesn’t mean that the data is gone. A copy of your original database is created, keeping original data secure and a test is run to see what can and can’t be converted.

What can’t be converted must be entered manually by your front staff. This will require time and patience.


How long will it take to convert data?

Basic data conversion performed by our software technicians can be done within ONE business day.

How much does it cost for data conversion?

We previously charged approximately $800 for basic data conversion, but as of 2018, we’ve been providing free data conversions for all Canadian dentists.
