Our Story

In 2009, orthodontic software veterans Ken and Ann Swinney embarked on a journey to change the orthodontic practice-management paradigm forever. While “so-called” cloud systems were available, no one dared to build a true cloud system to run an orthodontic practice. However, history was rewritten in late 2010 with the first customer in Woodstock, GA. That one brave practice has led to the tidal wave of cloud chasers across the country.

Fast-forward to 2018 and the success is nothing short of amazing. The first cloud-system is leading the pack with over 1,500 true cloud customers operating their enterprises solely on the cloud. Naysayers said it couldn’t happen! Those naysayers are now chasing a new orthodontic software leader in practice management.

With a unique vision, creativity, and a whole lot of brainpower, the future of orthodontic software will never be the same. We are humbled that Cloud 9 Software started it all.
