Patient-centric Mac softwareMac-based Viive
Henry Schein's new Mac-based practice management software features patient-centric workflow on a simple and clean platform. The new workflow takes advantage of the Mac operating system to provide access to all available management tools directly from one patient screen, streamlining task management to a single click. Charts, ledgers, and other tasks are completed faster and more simply by eliminating the need to switch between modules.

Aligner MaterialHighly elastic SmartTrack™
The SmartTrack aligner material from Align Technologies is said to deliver gentle, more constant force to improve control of tooth movements with aligner treatment. When the aligner is stretched, the material returns more closely to the programmed aligner shape to improve tracking.  The material delivers a low initial insertion force for improved patient comfort, while maintaining more constant force.  It requires no changes to current treatment procedures.
