What People Are Saying

"This was our first UGM to attend, and my team loved it! They said it was the best and most informative meeting they have ever attended. We just had a ‘Lessons Learned from the UGM’ meeting in our office, and the energy was amazing!"

— Dr. Ross Hunter, Hunter Family Orthodontics, The Woodlands, TX

"We implemented Ortho2 Edge Cloud one week prior to the UGM. This was a great opportunity to get ideas on how to design our charts, schedules, and office policies in conjunction with the new software. And we spent good quality time in the computer lab asking our questions."
