Customer Service Policy

TERMS AND POLICIES: CUSTOMER SERVICE

Curve Dental provides a variety of customer support resources to help you get the most out of our Practice Management Software.

Primary Support: Curve Community

Curve Community is an online user community which gives you real time access to support, user and training information on Curve Hero. The information is both at your fingertips and at your convenience as it is accessible 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. Here you will quickly be able to find answers to common user related questions, which in turn can help to minimize your downtime and allow you to remain focused on delivering high quality care to your patients.

The content of the community is up-to-date and continually evolving based on input from both our users and our Customer Service Team. Community content is searchable, and includes Quick Guides, Frequently Asked Questions and Video Tutorials for answers to some of the most common user questions. Access is simple. Just log into your Hero database as you normally would, and you are also logged in to Community.

For questions that remain unanswered, you will be able to connect with our Customer Service Team by submitting an online ticket through your Curve Hero Database.

Secondary Support: Ticket Submission

If you are unable to find an answer for your question on Curve Community, our team of professional, experienced Customer Service Experts are ready to help you. Contact with our Service Experts, wherever possible, should be made by submitting an electronic ticket through Curve Hero. It is the most efficient method of contacting us and will also have the quickest response time, for multiple reasons:

1.Your office identity and support request is automatically revealed to us and we can immediately begin to investigate the problem as soon as we receive the information. BENEFIT: We are working on your ticket much sooner than if you called us.

2.You can continue working on other important tasks knowing that we are already working on solving the issue. We will communicate with you if we have questions or require clarification.

3. You can avoid any unnecessary and unproductive delays waiting for your turn in queue to speak with a Service Expert to explain the situation; and finally,

4. It’s not that we don’t want to talk to you, however the less time we spend answering phone calls to gather information, the more time our Service Experts are actually working to resolve your support requests. We believe that this will result in better response and resolution times.

In general, tickets are handled by our team in the order that they are received, however priority is given to emergency situations, which is a situation where you are no able to log into your Curve Database or not being able to capture an image using the Curve Capture option in Curve Hero. In either case, you will receive a confirmation within minutes that your ticket has been received and assigned to one of our Service Experts. He/she will work to resolve your ticket and communicate with you either by electronic discussion through your Hero database or by telephone.

We recognize that there may be instances where you may need assistance but are unable to send a ticket. In these cases, there are alternatives!

To speak directly to one of our Service Experts, you can call us at 1.888.910.4376, option 1.
