Cloud 9 Software acquired practice management platform Focus Ortho, increasing the company’s customer footprint in the orthodontic market.

Cloud 9 Software, a provider of cloud-based practice management systems for orthodontists, pediatric dentists, and dental/orthodontic service organizations, acquired the Alabama-based practice management platform Focus Ortho.

Similar to Cloud 9, Focus Ortho was launched to meet the emerging need for cloud-based orthodontic practice management software. The acquisition, which significantly increases Cloud 9’s customer footprint, is the second for the company in 2022, with ToothFairy acquired earlier in the year.

“We are thrilled to welcome Focus Ortho users into the Cloud 9 Community,” said Mike Ressel, chief executive officer of Cloud 9 Software. “A commitment to the long-term growth and success of our customers is central to Cloud 9’s mission, and we look forward to helping all of our customers reach their maximum potential.”

Cloud 9 will continue to support the availability of the platform for current customers, ensuring that their practice operations continue without disruption. Likewise, Focus Ortho team members will integrate to become part of the Cloud 9 organization, guaranteeing continued support for Focus Ortho users.

“As Cloud 9’s leadership position in the orthodontic market advances and our organization continues to gain scale, we will be even better positioned to accelerate investments in our platform and service delivery,” said Ressel. “You can expect to see more new features and service offerings that deliver increased value to our customers’ practices.”

Focus Ortho users are encouraged to join the Cloud 9 Community’s exclusive customer platform, Club Nine. Club Nine provides members direct access to news, information, peer forums, and other resources related to their Cloud 9 practice management platform.

“We’re so excited to become part of the Cloud 9 family! We’re very confident that our customers will benefit from our two companies combining resources to provide enhanced service along with excellent support,” said Loretta Fowler, chief operating officer of Focus Ortho.
