Asprodental is an enterprise SaaS for dentists. All office operations, from health records to insurance billing, takes place in the software. Less than half a year old, the company already has dealer relationships and a functioning product used by two revenue generating clients to manage $3M of dental business.
Dentists are losing significant time and money to inefficiencies in their management software. The incumbent products are server-based and were developed in the 90’s. Over the years, third party products have been created to overlay the legacy management software. This leads to excessive switching between platforms, outdated workflows, and disorganized data.
Dental offices are now facing a unique pressure to upgrade their server-based management software as the industry migrates to cloud solutions. Both incumbent companies and new software companies are beginning to offer cloud management programs. However, these new products are heavily based on legacy processes.
Asprodental consolidates key enterprise features onto one platform, wrapped in a consumer interface. Radical improvements in workflow design allow Asprodental to eliminate about an hour of busywork per dental workday.
Many recent trends in the dental industry are reshaping the market, creating the prime moment for Asprodental to enter the playing field.
As dental offices are consolidating into multiple location groups, there arises the need to connect databases and remotely monitor each location. Those needs, coupled with broad consumer adoption of cloud technologies, has made cloud computing and storage more accepted in the dental industry within the past 2-4 years.
In addition to cloud solutions, there are many other consumer technologies that are being introduced to the dental industry -- for example, CRM products and x-ray capturing programs. These programs layer on top of the antiquated legacy practice management software. This presents a unique opportunity for Asprodental to consolidate existing technologies, improve upon the UI, and present a cohesive product to modernize the dental software industry.
Before creating Asprodental, Dr. Kimberly (DDS) and Tiffany (MBA) Nguyen had experience running dental offices together. Their offices, as typical in the dental industry, were operating on an antiquated server-based management software.
Kimberly and Tiffany set on a quest to upgrade. They spent a year searching for a great cloud-based management software. However, all the products they encountered had uninspired, cluttered workflows that borrow heavily from legacy processes. Asprodental was born out of a need to fill a gap in the dental market: an enterprise software that has the easy usability of a consumer product.
Asprodental’s advantage is a unique application of design. Asprodental’s one-page-chart and imbedded search feature are the key advantages for dentists. Streamlining workflows and removing extraneous steps allows Asprodental to be 20% faster to use than a legacy server-based incumbent, which saves about 1 hour in a dental workday.
Asprodental’s distribution plan leverages dentists’ current purchasing habits. Dentists buy anything from equipment and technology through local supplies dealers. The local dealers don’t have management software whereas the large distributors do. Asprodental gives local dealers a tool to be competitive with the large distributors. In exchange, Asprodental gains access to the dealers’ existing client relationships.
Asprodental charges a monthly subscription based on the size of the office, with a one-time enrollment fee.
Currently, dentists purchase everything from high technology hardware to disposables through their local or regional supplies dealers. The dental industry is highly relationship-based. Asprodental sees local dealer networks as a channel for scalability. In contrast to competitors’ sales methods of online demos, Asprodental plans to leverage the in-person relationships that dental supplies dealers have with their existing customer base.
Asprodental has secured a partnership with a local dental supplies dealer in Orange County, CA. The working model with this dealer will be replicated nationwide as Asprodental approaches dealer consortiums.
Part of Asprodental’s market launch strategy involves working with free dental clinics, starting with its first client, Lestonnac Free Clinic. Clinics such as Lestonnac are paying clients who offer a unique marketing opportunity. Dentists who regularly volunteer at the dental clinics typically have their own offices. By learning to use Asprodental at the clinics, the doctors decrease the barrier of entry for Asprodental into their offices. These doctors serve as a channel for word of mouth marketing and as sales leads.
Asprodental’s team brings together the best of industry expertise and fresh perspectives.
Tiffany graduated from USC with her bachelors in biology at the age of 19. Two years after joining Kimberly's dental business, Tiffany led her team to accomplish a 67% production and 49% collections increase. This efficiency set the vision for Asprodental's interface. Tiffany is on track to receive her MBA in technology commercialization from USC by August of 2019. Many of the connections Tiffany acquired before and during the MBA program have been key in launching Asprodental. Tiffany's ability to attract and motivate talent is a major driving force within the company.
Kimberly graduated from USC dental school at the age of 23 and founded her first dental office by the time she was 25. She now owns two dental practices that operate independently of her. Kimberly founded an annual free dental event in 2009. She grew the dental event into a full health fair that includes medical and optometry services, receiving grants from Rotary International. Kimberly's extensive industry contacts provide her with a strong foundation for leading business development at Asprodental.
