Goodteith Software has been acquired by Dentally, specialists in cloud dental software, and today marks the beginning of a new chapter for Goodteith and its valued customers.
Goodteith has been supplying Scottish dental practices with clinical software since 2000, and was designed and developed by Alistair Johnston; principal dentist at the Callander Dental Practice and is used by over 50 dental practices across Scotland.
Nick Davies, co-founder and CEO of Dentally, says: ‘We are delighted to have welcomed Goodteith to our business, which we felt was a great match to our ethos. We have common values and Alistair shares our passion for providing dentists with an easy to use patient management tool that allows them to offer the highest level of care to patients.’
‘We have had 18 successful years with Goodteith, but after much consideration felt that our platform was not the best choice for dental practitioners in Scotland to embrace the changes that NHS Scotland is undergoing. We invested time in looking at another system for our customers and felt Dentally was the best choice’, explained Alastair Johnston, founder of Goodteith.
Alistair continued: ‘I ran my own practice for 35 years and over the years have had the opportunity to work closely with 70 practices who have been Goodteith customers. Dentally has been around for a few years and have clearly listened to the dentists they work with in designing their software. They have a technically solid and friendly team of 12 that genuinely want to help dentists get on with their jobs. The software is easy-to-use, well thought out, practical and far more future-proof than other platforms we looked at.’
He added: ‘We are excited by this new chapter for Goodteith customers and will be working closely with the team at Dentally to ensure a smooth transition.’
In good hands
Dentally is one of the UK’s leading cloud dental software companies. It has been designed in collaboration with dentists across the UK to create a hassle-free experience that will allow dentists to work from anywhere, streamline their practice and free up valuable time. Co-founded by Nick Davies and James Harker, their forward-thinking team are some of the most dedicated and innovative people in the market and so the Goodteith customers will be in very good hands.
Dentally is trusted by over 4,000 dental professionals both in the UK and abroad, who can work smarter, work remotely and work securely with this easy to use dental practice management software. Dentally is data management, a diary, a marketing tool and a secure back-up, that can help you and your practice run more efficiently.
Over the next 12 months, Dentally will continue to run and support the Goodteith software platform, with the developer joining the Dentally team. Gradually the Dentally team will transition the customer base fully on to the Dentally software – which is fully approved and supported by NHS Scotland.
Nick continues: ‘Dentally has undergone all of the work needed for the reforms that have been made to ensure you can seamlessly link to NHS Scotland. So customers can have confidence in the knowledge that they can continue to manage their patients and NHS work effectively with us and will work closely with them to ensure a smooth transition.’
