Backup Essentials for Dental Practices

Anne Genge returned to speak with Dr. Suham Alexander about the importance of having back-ups of all the information housed in practice management systems.


  • Back-ups are the GOLD standard used to restore practice data if an unforeseen event were to occur
  • There should be 2 back-up devices – one in the office and one off-site
  • Providers and support systems for back-up must have fail-safe mechanisms to protect data from privacy breaches and physical destruction (fire, flood etc.)
  • Data should be verified at regular intervals to ensure the accuracy of the information captured in back-up systems
