Carestream Dental, the exclusive manufacturer of KODAK Dental Systems, is pleased to announce its advanced image integration with KODAK Dental Imaging Software and CLEARDENT, a leading Canadian dental practice management system. This seamless integration ensures that all images-both standard two-dimensional and three-dimensional volumes-are instantly available and easily accessible through CLEARDENT.

The advanced integration was developed to streamline practice workflow and enhance patient care. All images captured in KODAK Dental Imaging Software are automatically attached to a tooth or a range of teeth in CLEARDENT Charting and can be viewed side by side for ease of use, promoting a truly paperless workflow. CLEARDENT can also integrate clinical images within referral letters, treatment consents, and more with a single mouse click. The CLEARDENT and KODAK Dental Imaging Software integration also provides secure recordkeeping and audit control on all clinical records and images.

An additional benefit of the advanced integration is that offices currently using CLEARDENT Imaging can continue to use it with any 2D KODAK or CS dental imaging equipment. Later, if a practice wishes to implement 3D technology, the advanced integration will automatically transfer all images in CLEARDENT Imaging to KODAK Dental Imaging Software with no data loss, ensuring a smooth, carefree upgrade.

“CLEARDENT customers will truly benefit from having the information they need when and where it is needed most,” says Peter Li, Sales Manager, ClearDent. “Our companies will work together throughout the process to ensure our mutual customers’ complete satisfaction.”

“We are thrilled to announce this advanced integration,” says Kim Peterson, General Manager, US & Canada, Carestream Dental. “CLEARDENT customers and patients alike can now benefit from our full range of KODAK and CS digital imaging systems.”

Carestream Dental offers a wide range of digital imaging systems to complement CLEARDENT practice management software and further improve the productivity of Canadian Dental practices such as:

• The hybrid KODAK 9000 3D Extraoral System, ideal for generating high-quality focused-field 3D and general extraoral 2D images at a low radiation dose.

• The KODAK RVG 6100 Digital Radiography System, delivering high-resolution intraoral images (>20 lp/mm) while its ergonomic design and variety of sizes help simplify positioning and maintain patient comfort.

• The award-winning KODAK 1500 Intraoral Camera, with its patented liquid-lens autofocus and wireless mobility, and featuring the highest quality intraoral still images in the industry.

New and existing Carestream Dental and ClearDent customers can obtain more information about the advanced integration at the 2011 Ontario Dental Association Annual Spring Meeting to be held in Toronto, Ontario on April 28-30, 2011. The integration is expected to be released in CLEARDENT v8.2 in late June 2011.
