How Dentrix Enterprise can help large and group practices
An Inside Look at the advantages offered by this powerful management software.
About 20 years ago, the team at Dentrix Dental Systems, later acquired by Henry Schein, went to work creating practice management software designed specifically for large multisite and group dental practices. These larger operations needed a more robust, centralized solution, and because the company had already developed a successful practice management software for solo practices, it just made sense for the Dentrix team to provide it.
They converted the existing Dentrix software architecture to a relational SQL database that made scaling up and centralization possible, and then began adding the types of features larger practices and organizations needed. Once developed, Henry Schein’s Dentrix Enterprise quickly became a solution that multisite group practices, hospitals, correctional facilities, educational institutions, government institutions and community health centers relied on for efficient, centralized practice management.
Dentrix Enterprise continues to evolve, with the latest version of the software—8.0.7—released earlier this year. Here’s a look at the benefits this practice management software provides, its features and the ongoing development process that keeps making this solution even more robust and user friendly.
Benefits for multisite and large group practices
Dentrix Enterprise makes it possible to centralize practice operations in real time across all locations—which is vital for multilocation practices, Multisite Segment Manager Adam McDaniel says.
Rather than logging into different practice management systems or different databases for different locations, everything from patient records to billing to scheduling is standardized and shared in one database, he says. This helps improve efficiencies and the ability to make important business decisions, giving these practices the best opportunity for increased profits and further expansion.
“I’ve spoken with customers that have 20-or-more locations on Dentrix Enterprise and they say they don’t know how they would have gotten to this point or built their organization without a product like this one that runs operations across their entire business,” McDaniel notes. “It also enables them to develop common best practices across all locations and centralized reporting. All the data is in one place. All you need to do is run a report.”
