Notoriously Orthodontic practices are busier than dental offices in general. This is due to the fact that patient control is a frequent procedure without necessarily performing a practical task. This is one and the most important reasons for which an orthodontist goes through a fast check on more than 40 patients a day. Updating data needs to be speedy as well as the orthodontic software in general. This paper outlines a new methodology that has been designed to meet these standards, involving use of the newest technologies available like Wi-Fi and remote database access. A real life application is presented and the main advantages are discussed.
