Henry Schein Announces the Availability of DEXIS™ for Dentrix Ascend® at Chicago MidWinter Meeting

New cloud-based imaging solution to help Dentrix Ascend® users enhance digital clinical workflows


Melville, NY, USA – Henry Schein Practice Solutions, the US practice solutions business of Henry Schein, Inc., announced the availability of DEXIS™ for Dentrix Ascend® during the Chicago MidWinter Meeting. DEXIS for Dentrix Ascend is a cloud-based imaging solution built exclusively for Dentrix Ascend to help quickly capture and store images to the cloud, eliminating the need for additional digital imaging software, and automating daily procedures, such as insurance billing, to enhance efficiency and productivity in the dental practice.

The software, initially available to users in North America, offers practitioners four key benefits including seamless integration with Dentrix Ascend, enhanced digital workflow, quick access to images from the cloud and automatic upgrades and back-ups that reduce the need for maintenance and hardware. In addition, because DEXIS for Dentrix Ascend is built into Dentrix Ascend, practices no longer need to leave Dentrix Ascend and open a separate application to capture, store and manipulate images. With the cloud-based system, patient x-rays and intraoral images are available to all authorised devices and users on the system from any location, saving time for clinical procedures.

“DEXIS for Dentrix Ascend is another example of Henry Schein’s commitment to providing digital solutions that improve our customer’s practice workflow so they can focus on providing better clinical care to patients,” said Rhett Burnham, Vice President, Product Management. “Working with DEXIS, we were able to build the imaging features directly into Dentrix Ascend so critical tasks are automated, helping practitioners maintain patient clinical history and improve insurance and billing workflow.”

In addition to improving productivity and efficiency, the cloud-based system captures original digital images and uploads them (not a copy) with virtually no loss of quality due to a compression algorithm that provides fast upload speeds to help maintain image quality. Once in the cloud, the images can be edited using a variety of tools, including filters, annotation and density reading.

“As the leader in digital imaging, DEXIS is excited to continue delivering innovation by teaming with Henry Schein’s cutting-edge practice management technology,” said Brian Gooch, Product Manager, KaVo Kerr Group – Imaging. “DEXIS for Dentrix Ascend is a successful collaboration between imaging and practice management that will change the way an office functions – driving workflow and efficiency gains.”

Users of DEXIS for Dentrix Ascend have been impressed with its capabilities. “DEXIS for Dentrix Ascend has helped make our practice’s insurance billing more efficient. I also really like having the ability to remotely view, with clarity, an x-ray from anywhere when consulting with patients or colleagues,” said Dr. Mau Nguyen, Newport Commons Dental Care.
