3M Announces New True Def Connection

Posted on November 21, 2016

3M announced that users of the3M™True Definition Scanner now have the ability to place a record of their intraoral scans into the patient’s chart in Henry Schein’s Dentrix® practice management system. Working closely with Henry Schein, 3M has certified its True Definition Scanner as Dentrix® Connected with Dentrix, a leading practice management software system for dental practices.

This new connection seamlessly stores a two-dimensional record of the intraoral scan within the Dentrix patient chart, making the process of recording and saving patient information more efficient, while a link to 3M™ Connection Center gives practitioners easy access to clinical records and exclusive 3D visualization tools.

“This connection furthers our integration within the digital dental ecosystem and strengthens the relationship that Henry Schein, Dentrix, and 3M bring to our joint customers,” says Karen Burquest, global business leader for 3M’s Digital Oral Care Business.

This Dentrix Connected version of the scanning software is available to all subscribers of the Standard Data plan or higher and requires Dentrix 5.2 or higher and a current subscription to Digital Dental Exchange (DDX) OS, a web-based service that enables practitioners to quickly and efficiently exchange and manage casework with a laboratory partner. Some features of the connection may require a subscription to the 3M Advanced DataPlan.
