Henry Schein One launches Dentrix Ascend API exchange

Henry Schein One, a joint venture of Henry Schein and Internet Brands, announced the launch of the Dentrix Ascend application programming Interface (API) exchange, an information marketplace for software vendors to share with practices on the Dentrix Ascend SOC-2 security-certified cloud-based system. Through the exchange, Dentrix Ascend customers can leverage information provided by participating vendors, such as app descriptions and links to websites.

This exchange reinforces its commitment to open architecture, with the exchange open to all vendors who follow approved security and safety standards. The exchange is simple to join via an online application form. In addition to receiving access to the programme and Henry Schein One’s network of practices and patients, participating vendors can also leverage resources, such as marketing tools and tutorials.

“We take this next step as a leader in open architecture — allowing partners access to our ecosystem, which contains the largest network of dentists and patients,” said Alan Rencher, CTO of Henry Schein One.

Once approved for the Dentrix Ascend API exchange, vendors can complete a self-service onboarding process to access a dental community, helping to drive innovations in the profession. For example, vendors offering artificial intelligence (AI) tools, VideaHealth and Bola AI, are approved participants in the exchange.
