What Our Customers Are Saying About Us

Check out which dental schools are using Exan Software.

Willamette Dental Group

Exan was excellent with their support. They came in during the sales process and showed us what axiUm could do. They were on site the day we deployed, in the “war room”, they were there whenever we needed them. Exan is the best vendor I’ve ever worked with in my entire career.

AT Still University

We spent years researching for a next-generation software solution. Only axiUm Ascend provided us with the opportunity that we were looking for. From initial discussions through deployment and beyond, Exan has exceeded expectations and solidified themselves as a key partner in helping us fulfill our purpose.

We chose axiUm software for our school because it’s designed with the education process in mind…the assessment and grading modules seamlessly integrate with the clinical management system.
