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.

Winning smiles and winning contests

Posted by Team DEXIS

Ellis_2After 37 years of helping patients maintain their winning smiles, Dr. David Ellis also has a winning track record with contests. After winning a DEXcam™ intraoral camera just a few years ago, most recently, he won a CariVu™ caries detection device as part of the company’s 2014 Win CariVu sweepstakes. Dr. David, along with his son, Dr. Jonathan Ellis, already began using it in their Hopewell, Virginia dental practice. Julia Ellis, office manager and Dr. David’s wife, noted that they had considered scheduling a CariVu demonstration, but she added, “Winning is much better!” She also said that in the short time since they have had this near infrared technology device in the office, “We have used it to verify cavities found on X-rays. Dr. Jonathan has also used it on several young adults with numerous incipient lesions as an additional detection and educational tool.”

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!

CariVu: Love at First Sight

Posted by Team DEXIS

Eileen_1A while back, I had just been to the dentist and was feeling pretty proud of my cavity-free mouth, when I received an e-mail from DEXIS inviting me to learn about and train on their new caries detection device, CariVu™. Don't tell anyone at DEXIS, but I groaned inside. I've been in dentistry for 20 years and have seen and evaluated a lot of caries detection devices. A few were good, but more were not that impressive. All the caries detection devices that I had used gave information that was highly subjective and sometimes difficult to interpret. However, I knew that DEXIS doesn’t put its name on anything but the best, so I decided to participate.

What’s black and white and ‘read’ all over?

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) posted these interesting facts on caries1:  

Although dental caries (tooth decay) is largely preventable, it remains the most common chronic disease of children aged 6 to 11 years (25%), and adolescents aged 12 to 19 years (59%). Tooth decay is four times more common than asthma among adolescents aged 14 to 17 years (15%).

Many adults also have untreated tooth decay (e.g., 28% of those 35 to 44 years and 18% of those 65 and older).
