Henry Schein One Announces Full Dentrix Smart Image™ Integration With Planmeca Romexis® Software Suite

Posted on July 23, 2019

Integration Enables Centralized Images in the Patient Chart Generated from All Planmeca Devices

Henry Schein One announced today the full integration of Dentrix® G7 and Dentrix Smart Image with the Planmeca Romexis software suite, which for the first time ever, allows images generated from any Planmeca device into the Dentrix patient chart, creating a seamless workflow for dental professionals.

Part of Dentrix G7, the latest upgrade to Dentrix practice management software, Dentrix Smart Image allows dental professionals to view various image types from several participating third party vendors in the Dentrix Patient Chart, helping to automate common imaging and practice management-related activities. By integrating Planmeca Romexis with Dentrix Smart Image, practitioners can access images generated from any Planmeca device, including Panoramic, 2D intraoral and extraoral imaging units, 3D systems and CAD/CAM, from a single place in Dentrix – the Patient Chart – which improves workflows for case diagnosis and acceptance.

In addition to automatically transferring images into the Patient Chart, Dentrix Smart Image automates workflows for Planmeca users by posting individual procedures to the ledger to facilitate payment, updating the patient’s record for accurate tracking of eligibility dates for new images, and adding an entry in the patient’s progress notes. With the upcoming release of Dentrix G7.3, Planmeca images will be automatically attached to insurance eclaims, as well.

"Henry Schein One and Planmeca are committed to providing dental professionals with innovative practice management tools, so they can focus on patient care," said Kevin Bunker, President, Henry Schein One. “With Dentrix Smart Image and Planmeca fully integrated, we are streamlining the practice workflow and redefining the way practices interact with imaging systems."

Planmeca was among the leading imaging vendors to have signed on to support Dentrix Smart Image, quickly becoming a premier access vendor, and now they are the first to integrate its entire portfolio of imaging devices.

“We are proud to be the first vendor bringing this next level of automation and practice efficiency, in partnership with Henry Schein One,” said Ed McDonough, President, Planmeca USA. “With the full integration of Planmeca Romexis and Dentrix Smart Image, we are increasing efficiencies for dental practices and allowing clinicians more time to focus on their patients.”

For more information, visit https://www.dentrix.com/smartimage. Use of Dentrix Smart Image as a diagnostic aid and must be in combination with other diagnostic aids, PACS systems, and clinical experience to form a diagnosis and should not be solely relied upon for diagnosis.  For information related to cautions and warnings, please consult the. User Guide and the Instructions for Use.

Orascoptic™ Launches Latest Innovation: TruColor™ Technology

Posted on July 22, 2019

Orascoptic is proud to announce a breakthrough in loupe illumination. TruColor™ is Orascoptic’s pioneering technology to achieve high color rendering index (CRI) illumination.  With this development, 90 CRI illumination is available for the first time in a loupe-mounted LED headlight, rendering colors much closer to natural sunlight and unlocking a markedly higher level of color accuracy.

Every loupe LED headlight currently available projects light that contains a relatively limited spectrum of colors, resulting in images that lack the true colors inherent in the viewed object. This can lead to surgical sites and oral surfaces that appear washed out and exhibit poor color accuracy.

TruColor represents a fundamental leap forward in loupe illumination technology.  Orascoptic research and development teams have achieved a color rendering index score greater than 90 across Orascoptic’s full range of loupe headlights, yielding more vivid, truer colors. By comparison, all other loupe headlights on the market exhibit CRI values in the low 70s or below. Natural sunlight scores at the maximum 100 in the CRI index.

By combining an enhanced light source with innovative lens design and light beam control, Orascoptic has unlocked this color spectrum without compromising other important lighting performance parameters. Orascoptic’s new TruColor headlights deliver advanced color rendering with no degradation in light output, spot uniformity or battery run time.  

Orascoptic loupes have already been demonstrated to deliver industry-leading scores in optical clarity, as measured by resolution and light transmission through the loupe optics.  With the addition of breakthrough color-rendering illumination, Orascoptic is proud to enable surgeons, dentists, hygienists and other medical professionals to more accurately visualize the work they perform. Clarity is better in TruColor.

Lancet Series on Oral Health, Co-Authored by NYU Dentistry’s Habib Benzian, Calls for “Radical Reform” of Oral Healthcare

Posted on July 22, 2019

A special Lancet Series on Oral Health, published today in The Lancet, presents an “urgent need for radical reform” of oral healthcare to prioritize prevention and integrate dentistry into primary care. The series is comprised of two papers, both co-authored by Habib Benzian, DDS, MScDPH, PhD, the associate director of global health and policy for NYU College of Dentistry’s World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Center for Quality-improvement, Evidence-based Dentistry—the only WHO Collaborating Center on oral health in the Americas.

Oral diseases, including tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancers, are major global public health problems affecting half of the world’s population, but they have gone largely unnoticed.

“This immense disease burden is an important starting point to rethink the current oral healthcare approach, which leaves large parts of the world’s population without access to even basic dental care,” said Benzian, who is also an adjunct professor at NYU’s Colleges of Dentistry and Global Public Health. “By dedicating a special series to oral health, The Lancet is creating visibility and urgency for a long-overlooked public health crisis, and my co-authors and I offer solutions to improve global oral health and reduce inequalities.”

In high-income countries, oral healthcare is dominated by treatment—including high-tech, high-cost interventions—rather than tackling the underlying causes of disease and preventing it.  In low- and middle-income countries, however, dentistry is largely unavailable and unaffordable.

As part of prioritizing prevention, the Lancet Series also examines the need to reduce sugar, alcohol, and tobacco consumption to improve oral health and other chronic conditions.  Sugar, in particular, is recognized as the leading cause of tooth decay. The authors call for the adoption of a range of policy changes to protect and improve health, including taxing sugary drinks and stronger regulation on advertising targeting children.

The Lancet Series also explores the problematic rift among oral healthcare, mainstream healthcare, and health policy.  The series provides recommendations for system-wide reforms.

“Oral healthcare is isolated from mainstream healthcare. Thus we need a fundamentally different approach that integrates the two. A reformed oral healthcare system needs to incentivize prevention, embrace a wider team of health professionals, including primary care and mid-level providers, use evidence-based treatments, and respond to the diverse needs of local populations,” said Benzian. “The growing global momentum towards universal health coverage provides a unique opportunity to reform oral healthcare. Bold efforts in Brazil and Thailand have demonstrated that major reforms are possible and can benefit oral health. Countries like France have embraced the principles of universal health coverage and are now changing their systems to include oral healthcare in innovative ways.”

“Prevention is a key factor in reforming oral healthcare, and it is currently underutilized,” added Richard Niederman, DMD, chair of the Department of Epidemiology & Health Promotion at the NYU College of Dentistry and director of the WHO Collaborating Center. “Our studies of cavity prevention programs for U.S. children show that these programs prevent tooth decay, improve school attendance and performance, and are cost-effective and cost-saving.”

The Lancet Series on Oral Health was led by researchers at the University College London and brings together 13 academic experts from 10 countries. The Lancet will launch the new series on Wednesday, July 24 in London. Benzian will share key policy recommendations at the event, speaking alongside other authors, invited global health leaders, and The Lancet’s editor-in-chief, Richard Horton.

NYU Dentistry’s WHO Collaborating Center will continue the conversation on reforming oral healthcare and universal health coverage with a United Nations (UN) side event in collaboration with The Lancet and the World Economic Forum. The event will take place September 22 in New York City, preceding the UN High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage on September 23 during the UN General Assembly high-level week.

UTHealth Teaches Students How to Make Same-Day Crowns

Posted on July 22, 2019

UTHealth assistant professor Debra Stewart, DDS, participates in a digital dentistry training session.

If you have a damaged tooth that needs to be capped with a crown in a hurry, you will want to be seen by a graduate of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) School of Dentistry.

The school recently invested close to $1 million in its digital dentistry program to make sure all students earning a Doctor of Dental Surgery or DDS can make same-day crowns.

Traditionally, doctors make a mold, send it off to have a crown fabricated, and then ask the patient to come back in a week or two to have the crown installed.

Today’s digital dentists are using lasers to make impressions of damaged teeth and tiny mills to make the crowns themselves. There are no return visits, no molds of teeth, and no temporary crowns.

“Over the next five years, there will be a huge transition in dentistry in which more than 80% of all crowns will be designed and milled in-house,” said Michelle Thompson, DDS,  director of digital dentistry and assistant professor at UTHealth School of Dentistry.

Thompson, who completed her general practice residency at UTHealth, said, “We want to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to the latest technology.”

This is a win-win for the school and the dental community.

“We’re going to be able to attract more applicants with this technology. Also, our grads will be able to walk into a dental practice and perform these high-tech procedures,” said Stephen Laman, DDS, digital dentistry instructor, associate professor, and group practice director with the school.

In all, the school acquired 27 new laser scanners and five new mills. A six-week summer orientation session was scheduled for faculty members along with students.

In the training, a student works in front of an exam table with the upper torso of a mannequin. The student inserts a laser device into the mouth of the dummy and an exact image of the damaged tooth appears on a computer screen.

“This is the same three-dimensional technology that engineers use to design airplanes and cars. Light bounces off the damaged teeth. It’s then relayed to the computer, which in turn designs an exact replica,” said Laman, noting that this technology is formally called computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing or CAD/CAM.

Laman has been repairing damaged teeth for decades and said the CAD/CAM-generated crowns are more precise than those made with a mold of the damaged teeth. “We have been monitoring this technology for years and it’s at the point where equivalent or better results can be obtained,” Laman said.

Maria Loza, DMD, MS, who chairs the Department of Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics, is also training students.

“The move to digital dentistry began with digital photography, digital radiographs, and electronic health records. Now, we’re using this technology to make replacement teeth. In the future, I could see us also making bridges, implant crowns, and dentures with this technology,” said Loza, the Yun J. Ahn and Song Ahn, DDS Professor in Implant Dentistry at UTHealth.

Thompson said the school’s ultimate goal is for upper-level students to make same-day crowns in a School of Dentistry clinic.

Founded in 1905, UTHealth School of Dentistry was the first dental school in Texas and was a founding institution of the Texas Medical Center

IDEM Singapore 2020: Strong Interest in Southeast Asia Among North American Dental Manufacturers

Posted on July 22, 2019

IDEM 2020 (International Dental Exhibition and Meeting) Singapore will open its doors in 10 months. The event is widely considered to be one of the premier dental industry trade shows and conferences for the fast-growing Asian market. Very early sign-ups by North American dental manufacturers for IDEM Singapore 2020 indicate higher-than-ever interest from US and Canadian companies seeking to expand their sales into the Pacific Rim region. The 11th edition of IDEM will take place from April 24-26, 2020.

Product groups at the show cover the entire spectrum of dental medicine and dental technology – from materials and instruments, prophylaxis products, and pharmaceuticals to dental surgery and laboratory equipment. A top-notch scientific conference program will provide detailed information on the latest in scientific trends. The conference organizer is the Singapore Dental Association.

Over 30 North American dental manufacturers have already signed up for space. The majority of them will use the North American group exhibit organized by Koelnmesse’s subsidiary in Chicago.

Mette Petersen, President and Managing Director of Koelnmesse, Inc., Chicago, noted: “US dental products are in high demand in this part of the world. More than 30% of dental imports into Singapore actually originate from the United States. This time, we expect close to 40-50 North American companies to take part in IDEM 2020, most of them via our Pavilion Program. Based on early sign up levels this will be the strongest participation we have ever seen.“

IDEM will take place on two floors at the Suntec Singapore International Convention Center accommodating over 500 exhibitors from 40 countries. The last event in 2018 generated 8,500 visitors from the Pacific Rim region. IDEM attracts dealers, distributors, dentists, dental technicians, hygienists, and dental students from the entire ASEAN region. Besides the USA Pavilion, national pavilions will participate from Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Switzerland, the UK, and Taiwan.

Parents Say Kids' Oral Health Not Making the Grade Observes Delta Dental Survey

Posted on July 18, 2019

The end of the academic year signals report card time for millions of households across America. Likewise, parents recently assigned grades to the status of their kids' oral health as a part of the Children's Oral Health Survey. Few parents (21%) nationwide would give their kids an excellent bill of oral health.

Views of their young ones' oral health tend to diminish over time as parents relinquish control of kids' brushing and flossing habits. For example, while 30% of parents score children under 3 years old with having excellent oral health, that number declines to 21% for 3-5 years old, 17% for 6-9 years old, and 14% for 10-12 years old.

Obstacles to children's healthy smiles

So what contributes to kids' oral health being less than it could be? Get your toothbrush ready … not brushing enough (50%) is the most popular response from parents, according to the Delta Dental national survey.

Other top responses include not flossing enough (46%), eating too many sweets (37%), and a family history of poor oral health (21%). 

No vacation from oral hygiene

"While most parents do not view their children's mouths as pictures of model health, there is an opportunity to inspire healthy oral care habits at an early age," said Dr. Joe Dill, DDS, MBA, Delta Dental Plans Association's vice president of dental science and network strategy.

"Summer break from school can be especially difficult for maintaining proper oral hygiene, as normal daily routines may be disrupted," Dr. Dill continued. "Regularly remind kids to brush for two minutes twice a day, including during summer vacation."

Parents can help keep their children's oral health on track with the free Delta Dental mobile app featuring a toothbrush timer. Delta Dental Mobile is optimized for iOS and Android devices (smartphones and tablets) and is available for download in the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store for Android devices. To learn more, search for Delta Dental in the app store.

About the survey

The Children's Oral Health Survey was conducted between December 31, 2018, and January 13, 2019, among a nationally representative sample of 1,481 parents of children ages 12 and under. The margin of error is +/- 3%.
