Dental Intelligence Acquires LocalMed, the Leader in Real-Time, Online Dental Appointment Scheduling


Dental Intelligence is pleased to announce the acquisition of LocalMed, the leader in real-time, online dental appointment scheduling. LocalMed allows patients to quickly find and schedule appointments on a provider’s website without the need to ever call or to be contacted by the practice. Using the powerful insights available exclusively in their best-in-class, practice analytics solution, Dental Intelligence will now employ LocalMed’s market-leading tools to find and reach out to unscheduled, higher-value patients in order to increase the volume and quality of scheduled appointments.

“We are thrilled with this historic acquisition,” said Weston Lunsford, CEO of Dental Intelligence. “LocalMed has cracked the code on helping dental practices resolve an enormous and universal challenge: How to keep their schedule full and keep their providers engaged in treating the patients most in need of care. Now, using our industry-leading practice insights and powerful data mining, these combined solutions will identify patients with unscheduled treatment who are most likely to schedule appointments when invited through electronic outreach to do so.”

According to LocalMed CEO Keith English, “The combination of Dental Intelligence and LocalMed will give the dental community insight and action that has never been available before. While each platform standalone provides incredible ROI for dental offices, the combination of the two platforms will offer the ability to automatically identify and take advantage of the best opportunities for the office to maximize their revenue and be the most efficient practice possible.”

“We’re also excited to welcome the incredible LocalMed team to our family,” Lunsford added. “They join Dental Intelligence in our commitment to helping thousands of dental practices to provide more and better dentistry to their patients.”

Dental Intelligence and LocalMed will continue as independent solutions and will continue to directly support their respective products. Going forward, these combined entities will collaborate in the development and implementation of new and innovative technology with the goal of improving patient care, team collaboration, and practice profitability.
