Using Curve Hero is easy—all you need is a typical PC or Mac and high speed Internet access. We recommend the following minimum computer and Internet requirements. For best results, consider exceeding these whenever possible. Technology advances rapidly, so please refer to this page periodically for updates. If you are unsure about any of this information, please contact a Curve Dental Customer Service Expert at 1-888-910-4376 option 1.
Any PC or Mac using Curve Hero will need access to the Internet either directly or through a local area network. Most business broadband accounts can service these needs very inexpensively. Recommended connection types include High Speed DSL, Cable, Fiber, or High Speed Copper (T1, T3) lines. Dial-up connections are not acceptable and satellite and wireless service are not recommended.
The minimum recommended connectivity for the average practice (1-10 users) is 5 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload . If your office is sharing bandwidth with other tenants in the same building, or if you regularly upload and download large files, you may need greater connectivity than what is listed above.
Consult with your Internet Service Provider or IT Professional to determine the appropriate service for your practice.
