Lighthouse 360 vs Review Wave
Both options are popular in the dental field, but the first obvious difference is the price - Lighthouse 360 is a whopping $329 a month to start, where Review Wave starts at just $199 a month. Right out the gates, Review Wave offers several key features that Lighthouse 360 doesn't - online scheduling and local listing SEO being just two of those. Online Scheduling is such an integral part of running a dental practice that, without it, you're practically in the stone age. For this reason alone, Review Wave is the better choice over Lighthouse 360. Lighthouse 360 mainly focuses on patient communication, but fortunately Review Wave provides a robust patient communication system as well. You can even text using your landline phone number to text patients with Review Wave. Both systems offer patient reactivations and reminders as well. On the feedback end, Lighthouse doesn't offer quite as many detailed features in regards to collecting feedback and reviews. While it can send out feedback requests, it doesn't have automatic sending and follow up, or options to turn a simple feedback request into a full blown survey, nor is it 100% customizable like Review Wave. Both systems integrate with several of the top dental EHR softwares, so if you're looking for all of the features mentioned, it's recommended to try Review Wave. Their 2 week free trial makes it simple to try out at no cost.
