Our Team

Customer-Centric Approach

If you’re considering new dental management software, consider a company that is going to put customers first: Our MaxiCare Success Teams are there to help right from sales to training to support and, most importantly, aftercare. 


Dedicated Success Teams

In an effort to provide the best aftercare, your dedicated Success Team will consist of your own Support Technician and your own Account Manager. Your Support Technician will get to know the history of your practice while working one-on-one with you to resolve specific issues. Your Account Manager will then work with you on a more personal level, helping you to attain your long-term goals and getting the very most out of your software.  


So say goodbye to the call-center and hello to a brand new customer-centric experience with:

  • Faster response times
  • Personalized service
  • A positive customer experience every time.


We are proud to be the first Practice Management Software to offer an innovative approach in providing technical and customer service assistance.
