Heartland Dental, the nation’s foremost dental support organization (DSO) with over 1,700 supported practices nationwide, announced today that it has chosen VideaHealth, the leading dental AI software company, as its dental AI partner following a collaborative multi-year evaluation between the two companies. The decision was influenced by VideaHealth’s robust emphasis on the dental clinician, their ecosystem strategy with Henry Schein One, and their market-leading product capabilities.
“For more than 25 years Heartland Dental has maintained an uncompromising commitment to providing the best products and services for our supported doctors to choose from,” said Heartland Dental president and CEO, Pat Bauer. “We’re proud to enhance our already deep relationship with Henry Schein One and expand upon their collaborative relationship with VideaHealth by making VideaAI available to our supported practices, enabling the nation’s largest integrated dental AI footprint. Our work together enhances clinical and operational support, along with the opportunity to accelerate world class innovation in Revenue Cycle Management (RCM).”
Over the next three months, as supported practices undergo training, the benefits of these technologies will become accessible across Heartland Dental’s extensive network of over 20,000 supported doctors, hygiene providers, and team members, serving millions in their communities. These tools will assist them in enhancing oral and overall body health, along with a range of productivity and workflow improvements. A VideaHealth study involving 470,000 patients demonstrated a significant increase in the identification of clinical needs for doctors to discuss with their patients. With world-class imaging and workflow support, it enables patients to receive the care they need and want more effectively.
VideaAI’s diagnostic tools and huddle dashboards support the entire dental team’s ability to deliver better care through improved clinical operations, while offering an embedded workflow into Henry Schein One software. Furthermore, Henry Schein One’s Dentrix Detect AI, powered and manufactured by VideaHealth’s AI, is already available to more dentists in more practices than any other dental AI on the market and is being integrated into tens of thousands of dental offices.
“Heartland Dental has been a great partner for several years now to build a best-in-class product,” shared Florian Hillen, CEO of VideaHealth. “Furthermore, Heartland is one of the best of its kind when it comes to bringing new technologies to their supported providers and working together with them for years helped us to create the processes necessary to successfully roll out AI solutions to thousands of dentists that lead to actual adoption and better clinical results.”
“The adoption of critical technologies like AI will be led by world-class organizations like Heartland Dental,” said Christine King, executive co-chair for Henry Schein One. “Henry Schein One is excited to support the rollout of embedded AI for clinicians at Heartland Dental to enable excellent clinical care and operational excellence for all patients.”
