Flex Dental to integrate with Dentrix

Flex Dental, a patient engagement solutions company in the dental industry, has announced its integration with practice management software Dentrix, specifically Dentrix G6 and G7.

This integration is said to allow Dentrix users the ability to communicate with patients via text or email, send patient reminders, update patient forms digitally, present treatment plans, and request patient feedback with relative ease.

Brennan Dean, founder and CEO of Flex Dental, said that this integration will allow the patient engagement platform to reach a wider audience.

“Over the last three years Flex Dental has been among the fastest-growing patient engagement solutions in dentistry,” Dean said in a press release from the company. “Integration with Dentrix allows tens of thousands of additional dental practices to experience a more modern, intuitive, and cost-efficient approach to patient engagement.”

He added: “Today’s patients want to be part of their care plan and value open communication with their healthcare providers. Flex enables that level and depth of engagement with fast, convenient, and intuitive user interfaces that look, feel, and act like best practice e-commerce or social media platforms. We’re excited about introducing the Flex patient engagement system and approach to the many practices within the Dentrix user community.”

Benefits for Dentrix users include: a seamless patient communication including two-way, real-time texts and email; automated patient reminders, which reduces no-shows; digital patient forms that instantly update in Dentrix, minimising paper and manual data entry for staff; treatment plan presentations that increase acceptance and patient recall; and a streamlined and simplified process for requesting patient feedback and positive reviews that link directly to social media platforms.
