Henry Schein One, American Fork, Utah, has released Dentrix® G7, the upgraded version of the dental practice management system. Dentrix G7 integrates with a number of digital imaging solutions to improve clinical and financial workflows and efficiencies for diagnosis and billing.
Dentrix G7 is the first product launched by Henry Schein One, the practice management, marketing, and patient communication joint venture formed on July 1, 2018. Henry Schein One is comprised of the products and services of Henry Schein Product Solutions, a subsidiary of Henry Schein Inc; Henry Schein’s international dental practice management systems; and the dental businesses of Internet Brands, a KKR portfolio company. The new company was created to deliver integrated dental technology to help the profession improve practice management, marketing, and patient communication.
Dentrix G7 software integrates the Dentrix patient chart with various image types, including 2D, 3D, and CAD/CAM images, from several third party imaging vendors and is designed to automate common imaging and practice management-related activities. By integrating imaging solutions through Dentrix Smart Image, dental practitioners can access images from a single place in Dentrix—the Patient Chart, leading to improvements in case diagnosis and acceptance workflows. Dentrix Smart Image also allows users to link images with CDT (Code on Dental Procedures and Nomenclature) codes that are then posted both to the ledger and to the patient’s continuing care record automatically.
The integration of Dentrix Smart Image with Dentrix G7 is the latest solution offered by the Dentrix Connected program, an open technology platform that allows customers the opportunity to connect their favorite dental applications and technologies to create a single, unified digital office solution. According to a press release from the company, solutions are designed and tested to integrate into customers’ existing Dentrix system and with future Dentrix upgrades. Dentsply Sirona and Planmeca USA are Dentrix Connected partners.
Henry Schein One works with developers to create “Dentrix Connected” versions of their products through the Dentrix Developer Program, a platform of software developers who already have or plan to create software that integrates with Dentrix G5 and above software. Dentrix G7 featuring Smart Image is open to imaging providers that would like to participate in the Developer Program.
To date, 11 imagine providers have signed on to support Dentrix Smart Image.
In addition to Smart Image, Dentrix G7 features new tools that enable dental teams to automate recurring payments. With the new upgrades, credit cards can be saved and charged directly from Dentrix Pay’s Payment Agreement Manager. Dentrix G7 also gives dental teams the ability to create a custom list of patients that can be used to send custom text messages to each patient simultaneously without leaving Dentrix. With regard to patient communication, the new software includes an updated Health History module, which gives practitioners the ability to assign an unlimited number of medical conditions, illnesses, or allergies that patients may suffer from. This information can also be entered into the workflow from a patient questionnaire without manual entry.
