Toronto, ON – Quantum Dental Technologies, manufacturer of The Canary System®, has released the “Canary Bridge”, a software application that allows dentists to access The Canary System directly from their practice management software. The Canary System is not simply a caries detection tool but has the ability to safely and securely store data and images of the tooth surface being examined so that the oral health team can review, graph and prepare reports on changes in caries over time.
The Canary Bridge now integrates with practice management systems, including Dentrix, Eaglesoft, ABELDent, Tracker, and Ace Dental.
“With our recent software innovations, dentists can install Canary software on their operatory computers and work stations and view images and data on monitors,” said Dr. Josh Silvertown, Chief Operating Officer of Quantum Dental Technologies. “As a company, we are focused on providing customers with advanced diagnostic capabilities and a streamlined system for office integration.”
“I have found that bridging The Canary System to Dentrix has made the process so efficient”, said Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, a prosthodontist and Canary user based in Salem, Massachusetts. “I scan most of my patients with The Canary System during dental hygiene visits and I am making more accurate clinical and preventive decisions without requiring additional time for appointments”.
Dr. Stephen Abrams, DDS, President of Quantum Dental Technologies says “The Canary System is not only a sophisticated diagnostic device, but its numerical scale is easy for patients to understand – easier than looking at shadows on an x-ray or brightly coloured pictures of a tooth surface. It engages patients in their care and creates a very easy means of establishing a dialogue around their oral health care”.
“The Canary System is one of my favorite high tech diagnostic devices. With the new Canary Bridge, it’s easier to use in everyday practice”, says Dr. Larry Emmott a technology-focused dentist based in Phoenix, Arizona.
The Canary System, with its unique crystal structure diagnostics, allows oral health professionals to detect, track and monitor tooth decay on all tooth surfaces, beneath opaque sealants, around the margins of restorations and detect cracks in teeth. The accompanying Canary Cloud (www.thecanarycloud.com) enables dentists to view and manage this data in an online environment, track Canary usage in the office, and keep up-to-date on Canary products and clinical news. With The Canary System, caries detection is not simply shining a light on a tooth surface but it’s about gathering accurate information on the status of the tooth’s crystal structure and then storing it to allow ongoing analysis and monitoring.
