Henry Schein One, a joint venture of Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC), announced today the Canadian release of Dentrix® G7, the upgraded version of the award-winning dental practice management system that integrates with the industry’s leading digital imaging solutions to enhance both clinical and financial workflows and improve efficiencies for diagnosis and billing. Dentrix has been available to dentists in Canada for more than 20 years, and Dentrix G7 is the latest solution available to them through the Henry Schein One portfolio of products and solutions.
Dentrix G7 software integrates the Dentrix patient chart with various image types from several third party imaging vendors, including 2D, 3D, and CAD/CAM images, helping to automate common imaging and practice management-related activities. By integrating imaging solutions through Dentrix Smart Image, practitioners can access images from a single place in Dentrix – the Patient Chart – which also improves workflows for case diagnosis and acceptance. Dentrix Smart Image also gives practitioners the ability to link images with CDA (Code on Dental Procedures and Nomenclature) codes that are then posted both to the ledger and the patient’s continuing care record automatically, saving time from manual entry and ensuring payment for procedures performed.
“Henry Schein One is committed to delivering solutions our customers can rely on to automate operational processes, and achieve seamless digital workflows,” said James A. Harding Jr., Chief Executive Officer, Henry Schein One. “Recognizing the importance of case acceptance and patient retention, we are excited to offer Dentrix G7, with the integration of Dentrix Smart Image, to help our customers further enhance patient engagement and patient loyalty.”
In addition to its work with Dentrix to enhance digital workflows, Henry Schein One also supports developers’ efforts to create “Dentrix Connected®” versions of their products through the Dentrix Developer Program. This program provides a platform for software developers who already have or plan to create software that integrates with Dentrix G6 and above software. Dentrix G7 featuring Smart Image is open to imaging providers that would like to participate in the Developer Program.
“Dentsply Sirona is proud to be one of the first to integrate with Henry Schein One’s new standard of digital imaging management that Dentrix Smart Image provides,” said Joe Goldstone, Director of Marketing, Intraoral Imaging and Preventive, Dentsply Sirona. “We are excited to bring the next level of automation to our customers, providing superior potential for dental offices in Canada. As a Dentrix Connected partner, we look forward to developing more opportunities to help enhance practice efficiencies and improve the patient experience with Dentrix and Sidexis.”
To further enhance patient communication, the new software includes an updated Health History module, which gives practitioners the ability to assign an unlimited number of medical conditions, illnesses, or allergies that patients may suffer from. As a result, dentists can refer to these health issues during each visit, making patient visits more personable, and strengthening the dentist-patient relationship.
“Planmeca is excited to be a part of Henry Schein One’s Developer Program, starting with the integration in the U.S. and now in Canada. Both companies are working together to create a new standard in practice management that helps improve practice efficiency,” said Ed McDonough, President, Planmeca USA. “Dentrix G7’s Smart Image platform provides an additional value to our imaging customers as it makes accessing and managing images seamless and allows them to focus on delivering quality patient care.”
