St. Petersburg Dentist Implements Secure Software for Dental Records

ST. PETERSBURG, FL--(Marketwired - April 28, 2016) - Dr. Jeffery Spilman, a St. Petersburg cosmetic dentist, is prepared to switch to a cloud-based software system that will make it more convenient for his staff to manage dental records and schedule appointments.

The new system, a product of Curve Dental, protects patient information and will allow Dr. Spilman's dental team to send out emails and text message reminders to patients about upcoming dental appointments. Patients will also be able to pay their dental bills online.

"We're excited about this new software because it means our patient records will be safer in this secure system, compared to storing our documents on a server," Dr. Spilman said. "We want our patients to know that we're making every effort to secure their medical history and make their appointments more convenient."

The software is not just a scheduling program; it also allows patients to get a visual image of their dental history. It includes a dental chart, periodontal chart and treatment plans. Curve Dental software has helped dentists maintain patient records and schedule appointments for more than 5 million people around the world.

Dr. Spilman said his dental office will save money with the switch because the software does not require new computers or server updates and can be used anywhere with Internet access.

"This software will be an incredible investment for us because it will give us easier access to our dental records and save our patients time," Dr. Spilman said.

Dr. Spilman's practice, 4899 5th Ave. N., provides St. Petersburg dental care in general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, same-day emergency care and even root canals. He practices in a modern, stand-alone building in a residential neighborhood.

Dr. Spilman has transformed countless smiles using state-of-the-art, safe cosmetic dentistry solutions. He uses at-home and in-office Zoom whitening that can increase the brightness of teeth by up to eight shades. He also provides a special type of denture known as claspless dentures, a restoration that discreetly attaches to adjacent teeth to fill the gap created by a series of missing teeth.

Dr. Spilman practiced with his father for 10 years before opening his own practice.

Dr. Spilman, who has now been in practice for more than 25 years, earned his undergraduate degree from DePauw University in 1987 and graduated from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 1991. He holds memberships with the Florida Dental Association, American Dental Association and West Coast Dental Society.

Dr. Spilman uses digital X-rays to reduce radiation exposure and intraoral cameras to diagnose dental issues and teach patients about proper oral health care.
