Senior Project - Orin


Electronic Dental Charting

Senior Project: 2004-2005
Ryan Bruels, Gerald (Jay) Jones, Troy Koelling, Daniel Kowalewski and Alfred Smith III

HealthWare Corporation develops and markets application software for the management of medical and dental offices in the United States and Canada. They have developed a new dental application, called iDental, to provide dental office management and clinical services to dental offices. This application's predecessor, DentalMac, was written exclusively for Apple's OS 9 operating system and was successfully sold to over 7,000 medical and dental practices.

The goal of this project was to develop iDental's Electronic Dental Charting module for Apple's newer Mac OS X operating system. Taking advantage of OS X technologies offered through the Cocoa API, the task was to provide chair-side clinical charting, periodontal charting, and clinical records for the new application, encapsulated into a unified module. The new system not only provides the core functionality of its predecessor, but also provides a number of powerful new features. The software will be integrated into HealthWare's larger iDental product and deployed to all the clients who have upgraded their offices to the powerful OS X platform.
