Industry-leading practice management software recognised for innovation and excellence


Henry Schein Practice Solutions Inc., the US practice solutions business of Henry Schein, Inc., announced that its practice management software, Dentrix Ascend®, was selected as one of the Cellerant Consulting Group’s “Best of Class” Technology Award recipients. Since the inaugural presentation in 2009, the “Best of Class” Technology Award recognises innovative, game-changing technology, services and devices in the dental industry.

A panel of five dentists recognised Dentrix Ascend for delivering comprehensive clinical tools, as well as front and back office automation tools, to help customers reduce upfront costs and to make it easier for growing practices to expand to additional locations. Because Dentrix Ascend is cloud-based, dentists can access their practice data at any time, from any location, on any device, simplifying the management of multi-site practices and providing a central database and business reporting for the group.

“We are pleased that Dentrix Ascend was recognised by industry-leading experts as a best-of-class practice management solution and we remain committed to helping our customers succeed by providing products, services and solutions that meet the unique needs of a practice,” said Mr. Kevin Bunker, President, Henry Schein North American Dental Practice Solutions. “With Dentrix Ascend, practitioners can manage their single or multi-site practice at any time from the device and location that is most convenient for them, without worry about software upgrades, back-ups, hardware maintenance or storage space, leaving more time for focus on providing quality patient care.”

“Best of Class” honourees are chosen by a panel of leading professionals in dental technology who come together each year to discuss, debate and decide what products merit recognition. The panellists also discuss the importance of new innovations and how evolving categories become valuable to the general dentist. As a result, a variety of products are honoured.

The panel consisted of five dentists with significant knowledge of and experience in dental technology, including Dr. Lou Shuman, president and CEO of Cellerant Consulting Group; Dr. John Flucke, writer, speaker and technology editor for Dental Products Report; Dr. Paul Feuerstein, writer, speaker and technology editor for Dentistry Today; Dr. Marty Jablow, technology writer and consultant for Dr. Bicuspid; and Dr. Parag Kachalia, vice chair of Preclinical Education, Research and Technology, University of Pacific School of Dentistry.
