About Cable

We Help Dentists and Dental Labs Succeed Together

The team at Cable Dental has created an outstanding ordering and communication platform to help both dentists and laboratories succeed together.

Cable Dental tracks dentists’ lab jobs from start to finish.  It provides a simple and well organised framework for both technicians and dentists. This delivers a seamless digital workflow from the dental practice to a lab and back to the happy patients.  It enables dentists and the dental labs that supply to them to use the same online platform streamlining communication. It also offers for the first time the ability for dentist's to launch digital prescriptions via Cable’s ground breaking Practice Management Desktop App when using their practice management softwareThis drastically cuts down time for the dentists as they don’t have to hand write paper labs slip anymore. For the labs it significantly cuts down the booking in time for lab orders when they arrive at the labs as Cable Dental syncs the lab orders directly into their lab software. 

Both parties are winners!!  Hence how We Help Dentists and Dental Labs Succeed Together
