Reham Alabduljabbar and Samir El-Masri

Web Content Management system is a management tool for creating a dynamic website. It ensures logical structure of data organization and ease of content accessing and presenting. Dental laboratories need Web Content Management system (WCMS) to control their business. Maintaining a long-term relationship between dental laboratories and their customers (dental clinics and dentists) urges an active communication process between the two sides. The main contribution of this paper is to design a simple Web Content Management System for Dental Laboratories. The system adopts three layers of technical architecture. The paper will also discuss why there is a need to develop a standalone WCMS for Dental Laboratories whilst other open source WCMSs can be utilized such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress.

Keywords: Web content management system, Dental laboratory system, Three-tier architecture, Commercial content management system, Open source content management system, Joomla, Drupal.
