SEATTLE, WA — July 9, 2013 — Sesame Communications, the leading provider of cloud-based solutions to help dental and orthodontic practices accelerate new patient acquisition and transform the patient experience, is pleased to announce it has received a 2013 “Best of Class” Technology Award from the Pride Institute. This milestone marks the third time Sesame has received this prestigious award in the past five years. This year the company was recognized for innovations surrounding its Sesame 24-7™ Patient Engagement Management System.
Sesame 24-7 is a comprehensive suite of online patient engagement solutions that help dental and orthodontic practices grow and thrive in the digital age. Sesame 24-7 provides a powerful set of online tools to improve online brand promotion and management, patient communications and digital marketing. Practices using Sesame solutions routinely experience increased new patient flow, reduced no-show rates, higher production, more patient referrals and increased profitability.
“The companies that receive this award each year,” said Dr. Lou Shuman, President of The Pride Institute, and creator of the award and its process “have differentiated themselves in their efforts to advance the overall state of dentistry in one or more key practice areas. Sesame is one among those to receive this award specifically for that reason.”
The Pride Institute – a dental practice management consulting firm based in Novato, Calif. – launched its “Best of Class” Technology Awards in 2009 to provide an unbiased, non-profit assessment of available technologies in the dental space. Winners of the award are invited to participate in a technology fair showcased at the American Dental Association’s annual meeting. A panel of dental technology experts, organized by the Institute, selected this year’s winning products through an unbiased, rigorous assessment selection process.
“As technology’s role in dentistry continues to expand, the Pride “Best of Class” Technology Awards serve a valuable purpose by providing dental practices with an objective, informed assessment of the best technologies in the industry,” said Diana P. Friedman, CEO of Sesame Communications. “We’re pleased that the Pride Institute recognized Sesame, once again, for our ongoing commitment to developing innovative, best-of-class technology solutions that help dental practices prosper in the Internet age.”
