Evolving from humble beginnings to transforming into a thought leader worldwide, Consult-PRO's successful history is woven with education, art, innovation and community.
In 1999, an oral surgeon in Toronto, Canada, found that when describing some of the more complex procedures to his patients, they often craved more visual illustrations and information beyond diagnostic models to understand the benefits and risks of their treatment options and oral health. Drawing from an artistic background in painting and sculpting, the dentist was inspired to use cutting edge animation technology, bridging his passion for art and design with the clinical knowledge to make a patient sympathetic learning tools that empower, educate and improve the confidence of every patient consultation.
With the help of a technical development team, Consult-PRO was created and ran out of an extra room in the clinician's office. It was first used exclusively in his practices with associates, and the results were staggering! Patients were not only motivated to accept more treatment, but the quality of care and appreciation shown by each patient demonstrated that providing top quality care and oral health education resonated on a much deeper level. It was after this that the Canadian dentist and his associates believed it was time to share this amazing technology with clinicians and patients all over the world.
Since then, the Consult-PRO HQ has moved out of a dental office and into its own 3 story building. Their user base has grown from a single practice in Toronto, to servicing thousands of clinics, dental schools and hygiene colleges in over 120 countries. Maturing from patient education to full practice management. Beginning as CD-ROM to USB keys, then growing into a full scale cloud and web service. From being available in 1 language in 1 country, to 20 languages all over the world. Forging the concept of single office success into simplified and effective practice management for multi-office DSOs. A system created by dentists, for dentists. With a rapidly growing community, the future is full of excitement. There is much more innovation to be done to improve dental schools, private practices and the health and well being of patients worldwide and Consult-PRO is delivering the solution.
