What is ABELDent and how is it used in a Dental Office?

The healthcare field has been one of the fastest growing industries in the workforce. With an increase in demand for healthcare positions, technology has become highly relied upon for assistance. 

Medix College is a private medical college that is extending their education to Medix Online. Medix Online offers online courses for students who are interested in continuing education and upgrading credentials. 

Among many of the courses offered, our Dental Office Procedures course implements the use of technology to further medical knowledge and skills in the dental practice. The objective of our course is to gain an understanding of the dental software. You will be developing competencies in setting up offices, scheduling, patient file information, office staff information estimates and billing treatment.

What is ABELDent?

ABELDent is a dental practice management software that allows healthcare professionals to improve productivity in administration tasks. By doing so, this allows healthcare workers to shift their focus to prioritize more time on patient care and customer service. 

Medix Online’s Dental Office Procedures course will introduce students to the basics of the program. ABELDent is a popular software widely used in various dental offices. Students enrolled in the course will be able to add providers, schedule appointments and organize patient records using the management software.

The software simplifies organizational and administrative tasks in which workers can efficiently set up office hours, enter confidential medical records, as well as link new patients with family members.

It is important to note that ABELDent is a Windows-based software and cannot run on a Mac OSX device. You require a Windows 8.1 Professional, Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate. Windows 8/7 Home, and Vista Home are NOT supported. Windows XP and Windows 2000 are no longer supported by ABELDent as well.

Improving dental office procedures

Implementing ABELDent helps to improve overall functionality within dental offices. It maximizes productivity by transitioning the office into paperless workflow.

The software has a practical and unique feature called, “Patient Alerts.” This function makes it easy and accessible for dental teams to retrieve specific patient conditions. For instance, if a patient has developed a new condition or allergy, the patient alert function can notify dental workers of the condition to prevent repeating screening questions.

You can also use this function to keep additional notes such as language barriers or special needs required to make the client more comfortable. This helps dental professionals prepare ahead of time on ways to accommodate and support their patients. 

Overall, ABELDent offers a secure and seamless transition into a paperless office environment. Dental professionals are encouraged to apply this software into their practice in order to improve workflow and reduce person-to-person contact. With the new protocols of COVID-19 coming into place, this becomes a highly effective solution to promote safe and productive practices in dental office settings.

It was a great experience. I learned a lot and would definitely recommend taking online courses from Medix

OHIP Billing

I’m applying–and being considered–for a position as a Registration Clerk in the Emergency Department in a London, Ontario Hospital. The course itself was very intense, but interesting. The main reason I chose Medix, as opposed to our local college, was that I could work on it, and complete it at my own pace. I really didn’t have a need to interact with any staff.”

Thank you Medix for giving me the opportunity to take this Medical Terminology course at my own time. I would really like to send a big thank you out to my instructor Roopa Britto. She was awesome in helping me. This course is a great way to further your education, and it is very thorough in all the fields of Medical Terminology. Very well done. Thank you, once again.

The reason I took this course was to further my knowledge in medical terminology. For the past 5 years, I have worked in different healthcare settings and have gained knowledge in the medical field. However, I saw the need to further my knowledge and also be able to prove that I do have the needed knowledge for any job in any healthcare setting. The course was fairly easy to follow online. What I loved is that you could do the course at your own pace–since you have up to a year to complete. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is looking to expand their medical terminology but cannot assist for MOA.”

Shireen H.,“I really enjoyed taking this course. I have learned a lot because of the amount of information provided. The instructor was also very helpful. If I had any questions, she would respond to me right away. I had a lot of support and felt like the course was very detailed and taught me so much. The instructions are also very clear and I felt like it was great to have different assignments and quizzes for each unit to help me learn properly. I also liked receiving the correct answer to any mistakes I had on a quiz from my instructor because this also helped me learn better. I would definitely take another online course with Medix because they give you all the support you need to learn–and to get an excellent grade in the end as well! Thank you Medix!”

I took this course to upgrade my skills as an office admin. I had my fears about doing an online course because I’ve heard it is difficult, but I can say I have no regrets. I had a great instructor who helped me out whenever I had an issue. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in learning about EMR.

I took the OHIP Billing course so I can help my husband in his practice. Taking the course has helped me a great deal.  I am much more comfortable with the billing codes. The software offered through the course was very straight forward and self explanatory. I really enjoyed taking the course because the staff was very prompt and willing to help.

This course was very helpful. I found the professor to be very personable and responded almost immediately–which is very important since I had limited free time to do my assignments. I love that I had a full year to complete it. It allowed to me truly learn and take my time instead of rushing through. Thank you.

A really great course with an awesome software to create a working environment and apply for the course. Truly a great combination of training for office in the real world. Highly recommend taking this course after you take the OHIP billing course. One should take these together as they compliment each other very well.
