Answers to the questions that practices ask us most often

This FAQ provides information about determining software costs, arranging a demonstration, obtaining the right hardware and how we support our customers. If you require more indepth answers, please call us at 1-800-267-ABEL (2235) Ext. 1.

Here are some of the main factors that determine the total investment required for a particular practice:
  • How many workstations will you use the software on?
  • Do you require data to be converted electronically from your current software?
  • How much training and support will you require to help you get started?
  • Do you prefer to buy or rent the software license?
An ABEL Sales Associate can help you determine the best solution for your practice, and the total investment required. Call 1-800-267-ABEL (2235), ext. 1 for assistance.
A free demonstration over the Internet offers both convenience and flexibility and most offices choose this option. However, if you prefer a demonstration in your office, ABELDent Inc. has Software Specialists in various cities that can provide a demonstration in your practice. Call 1-800-267-ABEL (2235) to arrange for a Software Specialist to visit you.

ABELDent Inc. is dedicated to helping you find the best complete solution. Our strength is in software and related services. We believe that most dentists have better outcomes when they purchase hardware from a company that specializes in hardware. We provide free hardware advice to help ensure a smooth implementation.

  1. ABEL works successfully with dozens of hardware vendors across Canada on behalf of our clients - our Sales Department may be able to recommend vendors in your area.
  2. If you prefer to choose a hardware supplier that we have not worked with, we recommend that you select a full-service supplier that specializes in selling hardware to small businesses in your area. Pay particular attention to service level agreements and guarantees. For example, find out how long the vendor will take to provide service, and what action they will take to keep you running while your equipment is being serviced.
  3. You may also decide to buy hardware "direct" or from a "big box" store.

Whichever option you choose, documents outlining the System Requirements and Setup Conventions for ABELDent are available free on our website or by telephone.
