Because an increasing number of dental care providers can access Web pages, traditional barriers to exchanging information are dropping.

However, their development is complex, difficult, and expensive because the Web was not developed as a programming environment. Furthermore, the technologies underlying the Web are constantly evolving, forcing developers to continuously reengineer their systems.
