DEXIS Innovation Continues with New DEXIS Ti2 Sensor as Successor to the DEXIS Titanium Sensor, the #1 Selling Intraoral Sensor in the United States

Posted on Thursday, May 16, 2024

Today, DEXIS launches the latest innovation in its digital ecosystem with an all-new dental intraoral sensor, the DEXIS Ti2 sensor. The DEXIS digital ecosystem is a comprehensive, AI-powered platform for dental imaging, designed to connect and streamline digital workflows for enhanced productivity.

The Ti2 sensor builds on the success of its predecessor, the DEXIS Titanium sensor, the #1 digital intraoral sensor in the United States.* In 2023, DEXIS sensors processed over 167 million images, making it a top choice for intraoral sensors and scanners, as well as X-ray and CBCT technology worldwide.

Bringing several new features to the DEXIS 2D imaging portfolio, the Ti2 sensor includes:

• A housing design that's twice as durable as previous generations

• A proactive servicing module

• Access to 2D AI Dental Findings that automatically detect up to six types of dental findings on 2D radiographs

With DEXIS, 2D AI Dental Findings are integrated into both DTX Studio™ Clinic and DEXIS Imaging Suite software—not a separate third-party application. 2D AI Dental Findings automatically identifies periapical radiolucency, bone loss, calculus, caries, discrepancy at margin of existing restoration, and root canal filling deficiency.

“For patients with periodontal disease, we have identified sub-gingival calculus and monitored their bone levels. Caries detection and diagnosis is clear and precise with the contrast available with these images,” said Dr. Moe Katz of Katz & Pfeffer Dental Studio.

The Ti2 sensor housing is twice as durable and two times as drop-resistant as the Titanium sensor. The new posterior holder and WiseAngle™ cable design reduce stress on the sensor/cable connection, further strengthening the Ti2 sensor.

DEXIS also focuses on maximizing the productivity of the dental practice with the newly launched DEXIS Connect Pro. The solution proactively monitors the health of the DEXIS family of sensors through IoT technology and automatically arranges support or equipment replacements if performance issues are ever detected.

“DEXIS Connect Pro provides the kind of customer experience I’ve come to expect from DEXIS,” says Amber Metro-Sanchez, dental hygienist at Omni Dental. “The knowledge that my sensor communicates with DEXIS support and that they’re ready to help me if I ever need it gives me peace of mind. They’ve always been so responsive and helpful, DEXIS Connect Pro demonstrates the kind of attention to customer care and continuous innovation I’ve grown accustomed to with DEXIS.”

Through the use of CleanCapture™ technology, the Ti2 sensor captures high-resolution images by reducing noise and enhancing anatomical detail. The technology allows the sensor to be flexible and ready to adapt to varying exposure levels, generator usage, or positioning techniques to capture clear, accurate images reliably—even in challenging circumstances.

Equipped with its PerfectSize™ design, the Ti2 sensor is engineered to fit every patient comfortably, making it a convenient, one-size-fits-all solution for busy practices.

Experience the new DEXIS Ti2 sensor at booth 1665, May 16-18, 2024, during CDA.

Lyon College Unveils Locations for Schools of Dental Medicine and Veterinary Medicine

Posted on Wednesday, May 8, 2024

Lyon College officially finalized locations for its School of Dental Medicine and School of Veterinary Medicine in Little Rock and Cabot respectively. Renovation and construction on both campuses is scheduled to commence this year, with the Lyon College School of Veterinary Medicine and Lyon College School of Dental Medicine expected to enroll their inaugural classes in the fall of 2025 and summer of 2025 respectively.

“After thorough consideration, the Lyon leadership decided to split the vet and dental schools based on proximity to related entities,” said Dr. Melissa Taverner, president of Lyon College. “The dental school in Little Rock will be located close to existing medical institutions; and the veterinary school in Cabot will be located adjacent to the planned Cabot Animal Services Center and will have space for future programmatic expansion. We are beyond thankful for the time and collaborative efforts of so many who worked in good faith to open these schools.”

The Lyon College Faculty Assembly and Board of Trustees approved proposals to develop dental and veterinary schools in March 2022. In November 2022, the Higher Learning Commission Institutional Actions Council approved the college’s requests to offer the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Doctor of Medical Dentistry professional degrees. The college is pursuing accreditation with both the American Veterinary Medical Association’s Council on Education and the American Dental Association’s Commission on Dental Accreditation.

“As Lyon College continues to expand its academic offerings and strengthen its footprint as a leader in higher education, these new schools will play a vital role in shaping the future of healthcare in Arkansas and beyond,” said Victor Werley, Lyon College Board of Trustees chair. “We could not be more excited to be establishing a presence at two thriving locations in central Arkansas.”

For more information about Lyon College and its upcoming initiatives, please visit lyoninstitute.com.

Lyon College School of Dental Medicine

Lyon College, working in tandem with its Little Rock partners, has announced the Lyon College School of Dental Medicine will be located at 5 Allied Drive in Little Rock’s Riverdale neighborhood.

“We are excited to welcome the Lyon College School of Dental Medicine to Arkansas’s capital city, where it will be an excellent addition to a world-renowned medical ecosystem that serves the entire region,” said Frank Scott, Jr., mayor of Little Rock. “It has taken a total team effort among city officials, business and community leaders and developers to bring the state’s first dental school to Little Rock. I appreciate Lyon College for its partnership and commitment and look forward to the arrival of the first class of students in fall 2025.”

The Lyon College School of Dental Medicine will occupy floors 1-6 and 12 in Riverfront Plaza Building 5, which formerly housed Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield offices. The building will be renovated to include space for classrooms, offices, and patient care and simulation clinics.

“We are honored to work with Lyon College to locate the state’s first and only Dental School,” said Kevin Huchingson, chairman and CEO of Colliers | Arkansas. “The building and location are perfectly situated for future students and faculty, and we look forward to helping Lyon build this into a state-of-the-art educational facility.”

“Recognized as the state’s hub for healthcare, Little Rock offers unparalleled opportunities for students to gain practical experience and expertise in oral health and dental medicine,” Taverner said. “We are excited to work with our many partners in Little Rock to bring the Lyon College School of Dental Medicine to fruition. Specifically, I want to thank the team at Colliers for securing this facility, and I want to thank our friends at the City of Little Rock, the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Little Rock Partnership and the Clinton Foundation for their efforts to open this school in Little Rock.”

In 2022, Lyon College signed a memorandum of understanding with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences to foster joint efforts in both entities’ respective missions and identify opportunities for joint teaching, research, graduate education and professional development to benefit students and faculty. Lyon College is also partnering with the Arkansas Department of Health and Arkansas Oral Health Coalition to increase awareness of oral health in Arkansas.

“While our location is changing, our commitment to Arkansans remains the same. We remain committed to addressing the oral health needs of the underserved across Arkansas and I am excited about the new possibilities that this location offers us to positively impact the community, improve oral health literacy, and increase access to quality oral health care,” said Dr. Burke Soffe, founding dean of the dental school. “Lyon College’s new school will feature cutting-edge facilities equipped with advanced technology, fostering innovation and collaboration among students and faculty.”

In March, Sen. John Boozman championed a $15 million federal appropriation for the Lyon College School of Dental Medicine. The college has also worked with the Arkansas dental community to secure educational support for the school.

Lyon College School of Veterinary Medicine

Lyon College and the City of Cabot announce that the Lyon College School of Veterinary Medicine will be located on a newly formed multi-acre campus located at Exit 21 in Cabot, adjacent to Game Time at The Grounds city park. The Cabot Animal Services Center will also be constructed on this campus, which will help aid in the school accreditation process.

In the plan approved by the Cabot City Council Monday, Cabot will lease facilities to Lyon College to develop the veterinary school.

“The City of Cabot is thrilled to welcome Lyon College's School of Veterinary Medicine to our community,” said Ken Kincade, mayor of the City of Cabot. “Cabot’s commitment to fostering excellence in education and healthcare aligns perfectly with Lyon's mission. Together, we are creating a hub for veterinary excellence that will not only benefit our residents and animals but also contribute to the advancement of veterinary medicine regionally and beyond. This will be the first graduate program for veterinary science in the state of Arkansas, and we are proud to have it here in Cabot.”

“Cabot offers a dynamic community and access to diverse ecosystems, providing an ideal setting for students,” said Taverner. “With outstanding facilities and a commitment to excellence, the Lyon College School of Veterinary Medicine will prepare future veterinarians to address the evolving challenges in animal health and care. We are extremely grateful to the city council, Mayor Kincade and our partners in Cabot for making the school a reality.”

Last year, the City of Cabot and Lyon College signed a memorandum of understanding signifying the commitment of both institutions to collaborate on community outreach, educational programming and the provision of care and support services at the City of Cabot Animal Services Center.

“As a veterinarian devoted to this profession and veterinary dean, I find Arkansas’s enthusiasm for the new veterinary school truly heartwarming,” said Dr. Eleanor Green, founding dean of the Lyon College School of Veterinary Medicine. “We had previously signed an MOU with Cabot for a mutually beneficial relationship to support its Cabot Animal Support Services where veterinary students would experience immersive learning opportunities. The plan is for Lyon College students to have access to hands-on experiences in animal care, health management and community engagement, contributing directly to the welfare of animals and residents in Cabot. The location in Cabot provides the ability to construct a large barn and classroom space that will allow expansion of outreach to students and civic groups across the state.”

“We are excited to see Lyon College's School of Veterinary Medicine become a reality in our community,” said Alicia Payseno, director of economic development for the City of Cabot. “This partnership signifies a significant step forward in Cabot's commitment to education, healthcare and economic growth.”

About Lyon College
