3M Scanner Now Connects to Dentrix

Dentistry Today


Dentists who use 3M’s True Definition Scanner now can place a record of their intraoral scans into the patient’s chart in Henry Schein’s Dentrix practice management system. Working with Henry Schein, 3M has certified its True Definition Scanner as Dentrix Connected with Dentrix.

This connection is designed to store a 2-D record of the intraoral scan within the Dentrix patient chart to make the process of recording and saving patient information more efficient, while a link to the 3M Connection Center gives users easy access to clinical records and exclusive 3-D 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,” said 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. It requires Dentrix 5.2 or higher and a current subscription to Digital Dental Exchange OS. Some features may require a subscription to the 3M Advanced Data Plan.
