Excellent "hub" for managing all aspects of your BUT Patterson's lack of attention to 2018 Security Standards should make it a non starter or at minimum give pause before implementing

Comments: As the Chief Security Officer and Director of IT for a mid-size dental practice, and as someone who manages Product Management for delivering enterprise security products for some of the largest organizations in the world, for all the good that Eaglesoft potentially provides to a practice, there is no way in good conscience I could / would recommend the product based on its inability, and the company's lack of desire, to address basic issues that contribute to poor security. Our practice has spend multiple thousands of dollars and increased network complexity, in order to mitigate, to our risk assessment satisfaction, and address both our HIPAA HITECH and PCI compliance obligations ariybd these basic issues. EagleSoft did take steps in version 18 to improve the security of its database and protect patent data at rest which was both commendable and expected under HIPAA HITECH. However, other basic security best practices, Patterson has demonstrated absolutely no desire or willingness to address. Prior to posting this review, I reached out to Patterson notifying them of these issues, and offering to partner with the organization to address. I was politely told "no thank you" and that "they had no intention of addressing the issues in the near future." That was in Oct 2017. The basic issues are: 1. The product forces you to have your practice users have local administrative privileges on the workstation - This runs completely counter to the "least privilege" principal of security that states that a user should have the absolute least amount of privileges required to perform a set of tasks. As a result of this requirement - we cannot sufficiently lockdown our computing environment to sufficiently address Change Management. Further, if a practice user shoul inadvertantly stumble upon something from the internet that our Symantec Endpoint protection should miss, this single issue creates a condidiotn where the malicious code can propogate across the network faster then we could contain it. That is because our staff move between 11 treatment rooms. Wev've been forced to do heavy network segmenting as a mitigation tactic so that we could contain an outbreak or other malicious code providing us sufficient time to detect and respond. There is absolutely no reason, except for lazy coding practices, that in 2018 and Windows 7 and higher platforms that Eaglesoft cannot easily adapt their Win32 UI to run without fear of error when the user is logged onto the workstation as nothing more then a local system or domain User. 2. The second security flaw is that it is predicated on an idea that all users are using a shared credential at the workstation. While I understand that this is normal behavior in historical practices, and even today in smaller practices who choose simplicity vs. other risk, the product can be and should be able to easily adapt to an environment where each practice user has their own unique network login. It is already a requirement in PCI, and expect that in future HITECH updates that multi-factor authentication, i.e. OTP will become increasingly required. This inability to cleanly address multiple user profiles results in: 2.1 Violation of security best practices because it obscures tracability of action on the network. 2.2 When each user has their own system login, Eaglesoft forces you to go in and make sure that each person is individually setup to leverage common resources like X-Rays, Oral Cameras, etc. This makes moving from room to room difficult because for less technical users it makes it impossible to seamless work in any room where they may have never worked before because configurations cannot be set at a workstation level and traverse all profiles. 2.3 Eaglesoft does not provide the ability to integrate natively with Active Directory. I can understand, and fully accept Patterson's decision for Eaglesoft itself to be its own standalone Authentication and Authorization mechanism. It makes perfect sense because Patterson does not want to have an inherent mandate that AD be a prerequisite. In small practices that would too much. However, with that said, I know for 100% sure that it is not brain surgery to equip a product with its own authentication and authorization schema to leverage AD authentication and authorization if AD is present. I've done it multiple times in multiple enterprise scale products. I would expect that it should be possible if AD is present that I should be able to map an AD account to an Eaglesoft account. Today my users have to sign on twice. Once to the workstation and then to Eaglesoft, when once would be sufficient. To be blunt, these security issues above make it very hard for those of us with an information security background we are hard pressed to not look negligent if / when a security breach occurs and someone evaluates our due diligence against established security best practices. In summary, for all of the wonderful capabilities of Eaglesoft that in many ways makes it a "must have" for our practice. But in truth, If it wasn't for the fact that it was easier and cheaper to incur the additional network complexity and operations costs then it would be to detangle the practice's operations from Eaglesoft and migrate to an alternative platform we would have replaced Eaglesoft over a year ago.

Pros: When it comes to managing the end-to-end operations of a practice, Eaglesoft really can be a one-stop solution for providers as well as the front office. This improves efficiency and drives value that can be realized from the software investment, but it really does require the organization to be "all in" with regards to fully implementing Eaglesoft to realize its full value

Cons: Reporting effectively needs to be blown up and started over. While there are several out-of-box reports, there is no way to customize reporting that does not require getting Eaglesoft involved, and in many cases it goes absolutely nowhere. There are so many better reporting technologies and capabilities that enable template reports to become hundreds of other reports, and Patterson desperately needs to get a 21st century reporting capability added to the product. Eaglesoft desperately needs a new web-based UI. the 32 bit UI in 2018 is difficult, and subscribes to a user mode that is quickly becoming out dated. Watching our hygienist and doctors use the product day-in and day-out I see many areas where a new UI with a new Reporting engine would go a long long ways in rejuvenating a product that is otherwise very capable in facilitating the management of a practice

My excellent experiences with Eaglesoft's service team have made me a loyal customer

Pros: I have tried, and used, many different dental practice management software systems, and I have concluded that Eaglesoft is by far the best system on the market. It is both easy to use, and user-friendly. The customer service, support, and live help features are outstanding - the staff are friendly, very knowledgeable, willing to work with you and very effective at solving problems. Updates are released regularly, and they often include great enhancements. Eaglesoft has a lot of features and capabilities; it is great to have them all in the same system and able to be easily integrated with other applications we use. Using Eaglesoft saves our practice a lot of time, money, and headaches.

Cons: There are definitely some enhancements that should be made; my office has put in quite a few enhancement requests recently. There are some issues with editing insurance company information and sending claims that need to be worked out a little better. I wish it had better capabilities in tracking financial and performance metrics, as well as making that data more accessible and in a friendlier format. I am also not impressed with the time clock, and have recently decided to use a time clock system that is included in the human resources management system we use. That is another improvement Eaglesoft could make - have more human resources capabilities, or perhaps have Patterson create a human resources application that integrates with Eaglesoft (like RevenueWell for patient management).

Eaglesoft has a good foundation, but it has a lot of problems, and hold-time is ridiculous.

Pros: Eaglesoft has a lot of great features. It's very easy to administer your users, and the audit reports are great. It checks all of the boxes for HIPAA compliance in an EMR. When Eaglesoft works, it works very well. Also, it is faster than some of the competitors out there.

Cons: The software has to be configured for each user, so if you are on a domain, you basically need to configure your preferences for every single user on every computer. This takes time for deployment.

Sometimes, digital sensors or cameras need to be re-set up in the preferences because settings will be lost, and this can be a big hassle if you are on a domain network.

I have to mention the ridiculous hold time for support. If you use Eaglesoft (or really any Patterson software), you'll need to call for support from time to time because things will stop working. I can't count the number of times I've had to reinstall this software on the workstations. This wouldn't be a huge deal if you didn't regularly have 20+ minute hold times, which is a big deal especially if you are down an operatory. I'd personally avoid this software.

Overall: It's faster than many of the other softwares out there. When it works, it does work well. People who use Eaglesoft tend to like using it, but you'll have their support on speeddial.

user friendly, effective, productive

Pros: Makes dental office front office a breeze, and is easy to work with for back office as well. Plays well with other software companies that can be integrated into the system to make other aspects simplified. (We integrated Solution Reach, it was seamless). Customer support is top notch! Only once had an issue that was not able to be immediately addressed, and taken care of

Cons: The icons they use for the different charting aspects are a bit odd. they have an area to store documents in a patients chart, called smart doc, and their icon is a brain on a piece of paper. Some don't make sense, but if you hover over it with the mouse, it will pop up what it is.

The other is there is SO much to remember, it's amazing how much they have in there! Not simple to disable some "upgrades" that I don't care for.

Overall: Couldn't run the office without it! Scheduler, practice management, etc. A must have!

Pros: I have used EagleSoft for nearly 18 years now and it is incredibly intuitive. People who have not used it before learn quickly as you look at each screen and the graphics make it easy to navigate. Want to find a patient? Click on the chair. Want to clock in? Click on the clock. Want to see your patient's radiographs? Click on the monitor with the image on it. It could not be easier!

Cons: The front office complains the ledger makes it difficult to determine from where a balance has come. If a patient calls with questions about their account, you should be able to cloick on their balance and you would see specifics defining their balance.

Overall: Without EagleSoft I would be LOST. scheduling, patient records, radiographs and photos, patient notes, etc are all very well organized and intuitively placed throughout the user interface.

Comments: Despite the issues this is by far the best software for the price and the amount of options you have when using this for your day to day use.

Pros: I just love it how you can easy administer the users on this software. What I also like about this is that you don't really need to fully understand each part of it. You can actually learn from it by how easy the tabs and options are. In other words it's easy to use.

Cons: I don't know if this can be fixed with an update or not but when trying to change insurance information I get errors or it asking me to do this before I can do something else. The problem with this is that this doesn't happen all the time. Odd, can a fix help with this? There is also an issue when it comes to printing out the charts for the clients. I only prints certain parts when it wants to and other times all of the printing comes out the way how I want it to be. Maybe there is something going on with this or it is just me.

Pros: This software was so easy to learn. It took almost no time at all to feel proficient. It has so many functions to help me in my day to day use as a clinician. It is so easy to use that I was easily cross-trained to help support the administrative staff in the front office when needed.

Cons: Being that we have 4 office locations, there was no way to link the software. You could not access the information from one office to another. We have now moved on to a cloud-based software but I still miss a lot of the functionality of Eaglesoft.

Overall: I loved this software. We have been testing many other software lately (all cloud-based). So far, non of them quite compare to this one when it comes to the clinical needs. Also, being that this is server-based vs cloud-based it runs much faster.

Pros: Very user-friendly and lots of video tutorials on the Patterson website. The opening screen is very easy to navigate and self-explanatory. I find that if you've ever used any other dental software you will find your way around the software. There's a lot of icons that are very helpful and can be used as shortcuts.

Cons: It could look a bit cluttered if you don't know what each thing is for. There's a lot of different many that can get confusing if you don't know what they're for. Also if you don't subscribe to any of their add-ins there's a lot of extra icons and options that are useless

Pros: I've used Eagle soft for close to 12-14 years now. It gets the job done. We use it to manage 15 offices through out the state. In the early days doing this was very cumbersome. Over the years the software has allowed us to report on all aspects across the various offices.

Cons: The consulting cost to get it installed and running is kinda high. Shop around and see if you can find some decent consultants. This issue is that since it is niche software you are kinda stuck.

Overall: It is dental software that get the jobs done. It works in larger operations.

Pros: the customer service is very good with patterson. The live chat feature is extremely helpful, and much quicker than trying to call an 800 number and being on hold forever. There is also a "topic search" so you can try to find your own way through a specific area. I also like that there are videos on youtube to assist with training.

Cons: this program is NOT user friendly. all features are cumbersome and require many clicks and steps.

Overall: We operate fairly well with the program, but none of us are really fans of it.

Comments: I'd like to see new innovation that is easy to install and makes use easier. The problem is that we paid the required amount for it and now all these years later its about the same. And I dont want to pay more for a different software.

Pros: It is reliable. It's been around forever and will probably always be around and you know what your getting. It starts every time and does what it needs to do.

Cons: The software takes some time to get use to. With our new dental assistants that come in there is a learning curve. Not very intuitive.

Pros: This software is great for scanning documents and there is a great task manager that comes in handy when reminding other employees to finish some thing.

Cons: The claim processing was awful, and so was treatment planning. There needs to be a "paper trail" of appointments and when they are moved. There was an appointment rescheduled and none of the employees remember doing it. If there was a "trail" we could pin point when and who spoke with the patient.

Pros: If there are any errors in processing a claim, the reports are that print help you determine what corrections need to be made. It is not unlikely for you to receive a call from support if they notice you have claims stuck in in-process. They pay attention to what changes you recommend.

Cons: We have had a few glitches with ghost appointments or accounts that are boggled down but I have had the same issue with the competitor software.

Pros: The software itself is organized. Everything is very user friendly which makes navigating the software a plus. That being said, it is easy to train someone on this program as well. I was taught on Dentrix, and the switch over to Eaglesoft was simple because it is user friendly.

Cons: Not everything is included in the price. It is a little on the higher end, especially to do updates. In other software programs, they charge you a single fee and that includes things such as the card reader, the signing pad that lets your patients signature go right into the program, etc etc. In Eaglesoft, all of these features are an extra charge. Customer support is not the greatest with Eaglesoft either. That is another extra fee to get that help.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is a good program. We are a smaller office, and it works well. If you are looking for a program that has more features, i may suggest venturing elsewhere.

Pros: The menu system is very clear and logical. Even someone who hasn't used it much can often find their way around to where they need to get to. Patterson's support techs are also very quick to get to you, and rarely require more than one quick session to resolve any issues you might be experiencing.

Cons: There are a lot of menu buttons by default. You can turn off ones that don't get used often, but it can be a little intimidating at first until you get used to things. Additionally, some scanners can not do duplex scanning through Eaglesoft, requiring you to manually attach the scanned PDF to the patient file. Not a huge deal on it's own, but compared to how much faster it could be when scanning numerous files it gets a bit annoying that this isn't supported still.

Overall: It's an affordable and powerful way to manage a dental practice, covering all the needs of an office in one program that's backed by excellent support and compatible with most scanners, sensors, and cameras.

As a dental hygienist in a busy office, I can attest that this software is my favorite!

Pros: Im a freelancer back office support for a dentist. Without this software the clinic wont survive, literally. In accounting, whenever i enter the payments it also computes the adjustments. It comes with a built in calculator if you want to double check the figures. Xrays images are clear when scanned. Consolidating xrays to fmx is convenient.

Cons: Calendar graphics looks old school.

In the perio charting feature, it lacks tools and options. It needs an upgrade when selecting multiple tooth, like if you need to mark multiple tooth to create a different command like bleeding etc.

Overall: Despite im a new user of patterson i find it very easy to use and efficient. Extremely satisfied!

Comments: Patterson is the type of large company that thinks you are lucky to be their customer. They have stopped working for the customer. I have been sending them email after email of shortcomings for over 14 years and not once have they added any request.....from charts that have electronic signatures to paperless check in to software that logs off users after a timeout.....all things the most simple and cheapest software can do today. They depend on other software to do what they should do natively.

Pros: Support is good and they try to hep you overcome the myriad of shortcomings. Eaglesoft is well established and well known.

Cons: Development or lack there of.....Over the last 10 years they have failed to do much other than superficial graphics. They don't meet any security requirements, their charts and patient notes are simplistic and offer no auditing or control of who put the charts in. Their accounting is difficult and hard to use. They NEVER respond to user inputs.....going from version 18 to 19 they added two whole features and even those are only halfway developed. They are slow to respond to bugs and rarely fix anything.

Comments: Eaglesoft has much better graphics than Dentrix and it looks better to the naked eye

Pros: I used Patterson Eaglesoft in college and it was so easy to learn and manipulate. It had easy scheduling and the graphics were great!

Cons: I do not think Eaglesoft is as company friendly because I do not hear of many dental offices that use it. We are a group practice and we use Dentrix Enterprise

Comments: I have now been using this dental program for two years with two of the three offices that I manage and since I know four dental programs (Cloud, Dentrix Soft-dent, and Eagle soft) I am very unhappy with the design of this program and the lack of corrections with the updates since they have had two updates with barely and valid or needed changes even after my hundreds of phone calls and suggestions. I feel whom ever made this software had not enough dental knowledge when it came to the front/back office and the actual service workings

Pros: ease of scanning paperwork certain reports are very helpful task manager helps to remind staff members of specific things that may need to be done.

Cons: Claim processing/editing Service editing lack of Program compatibility Treatment planning Tabbing reports printing all open claims (It never prints them all) Also another suggestion any time an appointment is moved/Changed it should auto log in the notes whom did it to help larger offices save time

Eaglesoft has many downfalls although it provides basic function

Comments: Our office has been using Eaglesoft since 2003, so I do speak with experience.

The Pros:

The customer Service is usually pretty good. But it is over the phone, or if you are able to get on the internet, they will do many things that way. Most of our problems have been fixed this way.

Lots of features. I mean Lots. Many of them we don't use, but they are available. You can send emails, and texts, have patients check in on a dedicated monitor, patient education videos, digital integration is smooth, Charting, billing, etc-it's all there.

Cons:

They have lots of features, but most of them have additional costs. Online claims- charge, text/email-charge, letter program-charge, automatic billing-charge. They offer ongoing support, but you are being charged for that each month too. Just to have updates, and the basic program is about $200 monthly.

There are still gaps in the basics-for example, you should be able to enter waiting period information-can't, enter if sealants are basic or preventative-can't, how many cleanings are allowed per year and if it's 2/year or every 6 months and alert you if you are scheduling something not covered-doesn't. There are a couple of other things like this, still not there.

There are always glitches when a new update comes out. I always wait several months, cuz they always have to send an updated version out later.

Love version 18

Comments: Eaglesoft has been in our office for approximately 6 years. It has a lot of whistles and bells but is not easily navigated in my opinion.

Pros: Images are very nice. The customer service is really good once you get them. You get the idea that every possibility has been covered (there's a downside to negotiability).

Cons: Expanded drop down choices are available, but not in the most helpful areas often requiring a close out and search. Hitting the "return" button in, for instance, the notes on the treatment plan cause the window to close rather than advance a line- the whole notes section must be negotiated using the up and down buttons. It is likely ideal for a data entry person, but for dental team members on the go looking up items and entering notes it is cumbersome.

Recommendations to other buyers: Basically, it's very Deep, but not Intuitive. Consider something cloud based.

Pros: Eaglesoft has been one of my favorite dental software programs. I am now working with Dentrix and miss Eaglesoft at times. One of my favorite things about Eaglesoft is being able to add any patient to another patients as the insurance carrier. You don't have to have them as part of a family file. Which is nice in divorce situations.

Cons: I haven't used it in a little while and as of now I don't have any negative reviews for Eaglesoft.

Looking for dental software? Look elsewhere.

Pros: Very customizable but sometimes even that isn't for the best. I am able to assign colors to each provider and employee but I cannot get the software to stop prompting us to "change to prescription paper" or "change to regular paper" when printing. Too many auto pop-up all over the software that are not able to be turned off.

Cons: Treatment planning is a nightmare. We're a big office and present major treatment needs. It is not uncommon for our treatment plans to include 20+ services and this software does not make that easy. Very tedious to enter and prioritize. The software will not auto correct posterior and anterior fillings based off the tooth #. Also, there is no reason I would not want to write clinical notes and treatment plan at the same time, it doesn't make since for those features to be in 2 different places within the software. Also, adding patient family members has to be done very delicately, especially when they have Insurance.

Recommendations to other buyers: Look elsewhere. I used Dentrix for 10 years before making the switch to eaglesoft and I've regretting every day of it.

The insurance policy profile is seriously lacking. You can enter the basic coverage of a plan, but all plans have exceptions and there is no way to allow for those. Support is great, they are available via email, live chat, telephone, and virtual service call.
