The DentaLab series of systems began in 1979 as the first software package designed specifically for dental laboratories. In this era, the software was used on the IBM Series 1 mini-computers and were affordable only to the largest laboratories.


The introduction of personal computers in the 1980's led to the DentaLab/PC system written for the DOS operating system. This system, along with its user group program of idea exchange, training and support, quickly began the standard-bearer for the industry. Hundreds of labs, along with a number of corporate groups, licensed this system. Although no longer sold, it still continues to be in use by many labs who have loved its reliability and ease of use.


In the latter part of the 1990's, we developed a new version of this system specifically for use with Microsoft Windows 98/NT/2000 that was called DentaLab/PC II. This was written in the C++ language and included adherence to the Windows API standards that provide for great compatibility between all 32-bit Windows programs.


The goal of all the DentaLab systems has been to create software that is easy to learn and use, that offers a wide array of program choices and selections so that each lab can decide its own level of simplicity or sophistication...from simple billing to in-depth doctor's preferences, bar code case tracking and technician productivity.


Unique in this industry has been the strong user group program surrounding this system which brings together innovative ideas from the tiny startups to the largest most prestigious labs. Support services include training, telephone support, on-site visits, customizing, integration with other software packages, workshops, newsletters, disaster recovery, and a continuous dialog with our users through written, email, telephone, in-person, and internet communications.


When Intuit decided to open possibilities for software developers to synchronize other applications with its #1 selling line of QuickBooks products, Mainstreet Systems was invited to come to Mountain View in California to explore adding dental laboratory case management to QuickBooks. The invitation was accepted, the fit seemed perfect and work was begun in 2004 to create DentaLab for QuickBooks. Introduced in early 2005 to an enthusiastic number of labs, it has quickly become the premier product in this industry. Initially thought to be primarily for small to medium labs, the introduction by Intuit of its Enterprise versions for larger companies and larger volumes of data extended its reach to the largest of labs.


DentaLab for QuickBooks now synchronizes with all of the English-language versions of QuickBooks, including versions for the USA, United Kingdom, South Africa, New Zealand, Canada and Australia.


Why do so many labs choose the DentaLab system?

"Thanks for the excellent instructions. You make my job easy."
