In today’s fast-paced world, it is essential to stay abreast of the ever-changing trends in technology. This will help us to leverage technology for the benefit of our patients. The availability of fast internet connectivity, cloud based solutions and smart devices are making it possible to bring it greater speed, efficiency and safety into existing processes and systems. This clinical paper attempts to highlight the positive transformation of a traditional Orthodontic Department upon adopting the latest technologies in patient management. The Orthodontic Patient Management System is a comprehensive patient management software that resulted from a collaborative inter-institutional effort to create a fast, responsive and secure patient management system that incorporated our way of functioning. In essence, we tailor made our patient management software. The OPMS takes into consideration all the needs and requirements of a large orthodontic department and digitizes the entire patient flow, from the first appointment until debonding; stores patient records securely and facilitates appointment placement.
