The winter holidays bring with them both happiness and reflection — it’s a time of looking back on memories and looking forward to hope. That’s why this story, my story means so much to me. As Manager, Public and Media Relations for DEXIS, I have many reasons to be thankful. I am grateful to be an integral part of a company with a conscience. DEXIS gives back to the community through donations of equipment and time, through worthy causes such as Give Kids a Smile, Mission of Mercy, and TeamSmile, just to name a few. Attending these events has allowed me to meet the dentists and associates who use our products every day, and share their skills with people whose finances often preclude vital dental care for them and their children.
I also thank DEXIS for their devotion to research and development. Besides producing the most popular X-ray system on the market, DEXIS also has developed low-dose X-ray and no-dose dental imaging systems, like the DEXIS™ Platinum sensor and CariVu™. This is particularly important to me. After several bouts with cancer, radiation therapy treatments, and periodic follow-up scans to monitor my progress, and so much radiation exposure, I am now reluctant to further expose myself to X-rays of any kind. I know that thousands share my concern. The American Cancer Society notes that more than half of all people with cancer get radiation therapy as part of their treatment.* It is very satisfying to work for a company that I know cares about this issue and works toward reducing the amount of radiation to obtain dental images. When I go to my dentist, long-time DEXIS owner Dr. Ted Hadgis, I know that he is obtaining the images that he requires for a thorough diagnosis with the ability to control dose to best meet my needs, including the use of no-dose options whenever possible.For the New Year and all year round, I am thankful for many things — for love of family, support of dear friends, the healing power of medical technology, and Team DEXIS, for their knowledge, philanthropic spirit, innovation, and dedication to continuous improvement that helps dentists provide better care.
