Yes, Relationships DO Affect Care

Posted by Team DEXIS

Content provided by Lisa Nulty, RDH, M. Ed

Hygienist_wSensor_and_Patient_FB.jpgIt’s no secret that doctor-patient relationships are very important in building and maintaining a successful practice. When patients trust their caregivers, they are more likely to follow instructions. In my 26 years of working with dentists and their practices, I have witnessed firsthand how building these relationships and educating patients has resulted in people seeking routine, timely care. That means that patients are not only interested in addressing problems, but also are scheduling regular checkups to keep their teeth healthy which in turn, allows the clinician more opportunity for early diagnosis of dental disease.

Section 179 – A Slam Dunk!

Posted by Team DEXIS

Section-179.jpg“It’s a slam dunk.” That’s how Keith Drayer, vice president and general manager of Henry Schein Financial Services, describes purchasing equipment during the 2015 tax year and taking advantage of the benefits of Section 179 of the tax code. According to the Section 179 website, “Essentially, Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. That means that if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct the full purchase price from your gross income. It's an incentive created by the U.S. government to encourage businesses to buy equipment and invest in themselves.”

DEXIS congratulates another Sweepstakes winner, Dr. Véronique Benhamou, of Montreal, Québec!

Posted by Team DEXIS


Before winning the sweepstakes, Dr. Benhamou already had researched the DEXIS system. She recalled, “In the light of making the best decisions for our practice, I was browsing the Internet looking for information, and I just happened to find the contest and entered. Shortly after I had already purchased the DEXIS system with two Platinum sensors, I got notified that we had won and would be receiving another sensor!”

Insights from a dental IT professional

Posted by Team DEXIS

FFeld1The DEXIS™ team enjoys hearing from dental professionals who contact us about how digital imaging has improved their practices from both a clinical and business perspective. Recently, we heard from Forrest Feld, an IT professional from Seminole, FL, who installs and troubleshoots technology in dental offices. He shared some interesting insights on dental offices that have finally switched from their troublesome imaging systems to DEXIS.

“Some of these customers start by calling their equipment representative and asking for the cheapest system,” he says. “They don’t ask, ‘What is the best?’ Then, when they start having problems, such as glitches due to software incompatibility and insufficient beta testing on the part of the manufacturer, they call me to ask why.” He says that these dental offices use the less expensive imaging system until frustration sets in, and sometimes they switch to yet another system, and then, eventually, they switch to DEXIS, which is the system that Feld recommends.

Beaming about radiation-reducing DEXshield

Posted by Team DEXIS

john_james_headshot_webTeam DEXIS recently sat down with Dr. John James of West Lafayette, IN for a conversation about his positive experiences with DEXshield™. Here’s what he had to say:  "When I was looking for a digital X-ray system, my biggest requirement was an increase in diagnostic capacity — with DEXIS, I was able to achieve that immediately. I also wanted to be able to attain a more comfortable fit for patients. DEXIS Platinum sensors offered that attribute, as well. Now, after using the system for a while, I have realized that not only are we getting a more comfortable fit, we are also needing fewer retakes due to the size and shape of the device and also the holding system, which is very well designed. But there's more to the system!

Synergy is defined as two or more things functioning together to produce a result that is greater than the sum of the individual elements. Like the iconic pairings of milk and cookies, movies and popcorn, computers and the Internet, we also have experienced the combining of two great things that fit so well together that we ended up with something that’s even more incredible.

It’s YOUR DEXIS—See it YOUR way!

Posted by Team DEXIS

viewsThose who have been using DEXIS for quite a while probably have multiple series and PAs for each patient. One of the most efficient features of DEXIS is the ability to pick and choose what images you want to see on the screen for any given patient and procedure. There are many ways to view images that can help set the stage so that you (and your patient) can target just the info you need for the day.
