What You Can Expect During The Dental IT Startup Process

While the specifics may vary depending on your timeline and your practice, below is an overview of what needs to be done during the dental IT startup process, as well as an estimate of when each step should take place.

  • 4-6 months before launch – As the first step of the IT startup process, you’ll want to acquire your web domain and begin building out a website with the help of a web design company. Partnering with a marketing agency for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) services is also helpful and helps you reach more potential patients through Google and other search engines.

  • 2-4 months before launch – During this time, Darkhorse Tech will work with you to set up email addresses for your practice, yourself, and your employees. This is also a good time to get set up with the practice management (PM) software that you’ll be using at your office.

    Our team can help you choose and set up the right software based on your budget and your unique business needs. This is also a great time to familiarize yourself with your PM software and how it works. During this time, we will also set up any necessary physical server infrastructure in your office, though this may not be necessary if you choose a cloud server system.

  • 1-3 months before launch – you’ll need to set your office up with an internet service provider (ISP) in your area. Most ISPs will need between 30-90 days of advance notice to set up a connection. It’s important to choose an ISP that offers plenty of speed and reliability, and we can help you choose the right provider.

    You also will want to set up either physical phones or a VoIP (Voice over IP) phone system at this time. You will likely need multiple phone numbers at your office. For example, one number may connect directly to your front desk, while another will be used for insurance purposes or emergency patient appointments.

  • 1 month before launch – Once your office has been fully built and finished, Darkhorse Tech will work closely with you to acquire and set up all remaining IT infrastructure including WiFi networks, office computer systems, and patient entertainment such as TVs or tablet stations.
