Computerized Dental PracticeMoreComputerized Dental Practice Management is written for the Dental Assisting programs offered in community colleges, career colleges, technical institutes, on the job training programs in dental offices, and the military. Computerized Dental Practice Management is a portion of the Dental Assisting course that all programs must offer. This course involves setting up patient files, filing insurance claims, keeping dental records and scheduling patients. Until recently this function was preformed using an elaborate filing system referred to as a Peg-board system. Students purchase a workbook accompanied by forms and files. Major dental companies have developed office management software for filing insurance forms, keeping dental records and scheduling. These computerized practices are replacing the peg-board system which is a standardized system of forms, clip folders and files and record management templates.

The EagleSoft software is being provided to Thomson Delmar Learning by EagleSoft (at no cost) and is included with each textbook.
