Forms PDF Improvements
So…it was an awkward conversation, but we finally sat down with our forms and broke the news to them that they needed to lose a few pounds. There were tears. There was denial. But in the end we convinced them that all of the extra padding, larger margins, and bigger fonts they were using lately […]

We've Improved Charting Sealants
Restorations. Sealants. Restorations. Sealants. Who can tell the difference? This has been a long standing problem in our odontogram.

Handwritten Signature on Online Forms
Since Fred Flintstone first scratched an “X” on a limestone tablet when buying a cave, the signature has been an important part of our society. Actually, that is probably historically inaccurate. It might have been a granite tablet. Nevertheless, we all know that a handwritten signature has been the standard proof of identity and intent […]

Access Denied
From time to time, the Chrome browser gets updated, and Curve Hero may seem uncooperative. This can be frustrating, but the good news is, in most cases, there is a very straightforward fix. Recently a few users have been getting a message that says, “Almost There! The most recent version of Flash must be installed…” when […]
