A Single-Size X-ray Sensor That's Just Right

Posted by Team DEXIS

DEXIS Platinum X-ray Sensor.jpegFinding a sensor that pleases both the patient and the clinician used to be the stuff that fairy tales were made of. With all of the brands out there, some sensors were too big and some were too sharp, and no dental assistant should have to bear those kind of imaging issues. You don’t have to wander among the many brands, until you can’t see the forest for the trees. With the DEXIS™ Platinum sensor, clinicians can capture excellent images with a single-size sensor that fits “just right ” — whether the patient is father-sized, mother-sized, child-sized, or any size in between.

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.”

However, a different type of trip that a German tourist recently took on Lombard Street in San Francisco was a very unwelcome surprise.  After she fell, her husband saw that her bridge had fallen out, and her face was bloody. He thought fast and Googled “dentist” on his iPad. Dr. Cynthia K. Brattesani’s name came up on the search as very close to them.

Dr. Brattesani and her team were just about to start their lunch hour when, as she describes, “a tourist entered our office holding some teeth in her hands
