Don't forget to ask how much more the hardware and networking functionality will cost, and specifically when the product will be done. Promises, promises, promises...
Speaking of 'add-on options', little things like the sensors necessary to take the x-rays (and the price) should probably be included with the software. DentalMac clients have been snowballed long enough.

I've always felt sorry for medical/dental fields in terms of technology costs.
you guys and gals get reamed every time.
It's about like the higher ed textbook scams.
With off the-shelf components (and modules in software) there is often little reason other than greed.
some equipment is expensive, period. sensors usually are expensive. but much of the hardware in use out there (pda's for medical software for example) unnecessarily so.
heck, even stethoscopes are still out rageously pricey and those haven't changed in how long?
this is well into the age of printed circuits...
here in japan, most data and crm work is still done with paper and pen.
works fine, doesn't affect the cost of healthcare.
