Who is your favorite sidekick of all time?
As a kid, I loved reruns of the Batman television show starring Adam West as Batman and Burt Ward as an overly-enthusiastic Robin. Robin was the ultimate sidekick, always there to fight crime and provide a witty, albeit cheesy, one-liner. Later on in life, I realized Batman was played for laughs but, at the time, it was serious business to me. Batman was a hero and Robin was his trusted partner.
Many of our customers come to us because their practice needs a partner in improving their patient communications and giving their efficiency a boost in their Open Dental software. Like Robin, we jump right in to help. However, while supercharging patient communication and powering up your efficiency are our main strengths, Flex can also contribute to your practice's success through other avenues.
At Flex, we do more than develop software - we build relationships, both with our customers AND between our customers and their patients. We feel that being a good partner and resource to your dental practice means that we maintain open lines of communication throughout the entire customer experience. We want to know what you love about Flex so we can continue to push the boundaries of what a software company should be (we’ll give you a hint - we don’t think improvement should ever stop). So, when one of our customers is excited about Flex and our team, we just can’t help but share it!

While Flex gets plenty of attention for our slick, easy-to-use patient communication software, our team is what really gives our company “buzz” around the industry. We say it all the time (but we will never state it enough) - great service is the foundation that we are growing our business on. It’s the mindset behind everything we do. Because service is that important to us, we don’t trust our customer relationships with just anyone - we look for team members that take ownership of the success of each and every Flexer.

Here’s a quick rundown on what makes Flex unique among patient communication solutions for Open Dental. Get your track shoes laced up - we’re going fast.
We know there are lots of patient communication companies out there and it can be difficult to determine the differences between providers. At Flex, we like to think we do things a little bit outside of the typical “dental industry box.” From the beginnings of our company to some features that you won’t find in any other patient communication software, Flex has a history of marching to the beat of our own drum. Fortunately, the beat seems to be catchy enough where people don’t mind joining us on our journey.

Yet, here we are, a year later, still doing our best to get back to a semblance of “normal” life.
