The prestigious Pride Institute grants esteemed honors to CariVu and DEXIS Imaging Suite for their benefits to the dental practice.
Hatfield, PA (July 21, 2015) DEXIS, LLC, a brand of the KaVo Kerr Group, is pleased to announce that the Pride Institute has presented DEXIS CariVu and DEXIS Imaging Suite with Best of Class Technology Awards for 2015 as products that demonstrate excellence in dental innovation in their respective categories. The Pride Institute “Best of Class” Technology awards were launched 7 years ago as a new concept to provide an unbiased, non-profit assessment of available technologies in the dental space. In 2015, DEXIS CariVu and DEXIS Imaging Suite once again met the rigorous criteria for being “Best of Class,” standing out as innovative products that can positively impact dentists’ daily work.
CariVu technology detects caries* without ionizing radiation. The compact and portable device uses patented transillumination technology to support the identification of occlusal, interproximal and recurrent carious lesions and cracks. And, with images that read like familiar X-ray images, this unit functions unlike any other caries detection device. Another defining aspect of CariVu is its impressive accuracy rate of 99%.*
DEXIS Imaging Suite software has a dynamic history of bringing leading imaging solutions to general dentists and specialists alike. Recognized for its functionality, the software has many unique features that save the practitioner time as well as seamless integration between imaging and the practice management programs, intra-oral cameras, digital panoramic systems and select 3D products.
“Best of Class” Founder, Dr. Lou Shuman, noted, “The ‘Best of Class’ Technology Award continues unparalleled in its integrity and approach to recognizing excellence in dental innovation. Two DEXIS products, the CariVu caries detection device and DEXIS imaging suite, met our distinguished panel’s criteria for adding value to the dental practice and setting a quality standard. CariVu’s transillumination technology offers diagnostic information on caries in a form that is not available in any other current technology. DEXIS Imaging Suite blends technology, integration and functionality for DEXIS users. We recognize DEXIS for its continuing commitment in creating leading edge technologies in the dental space.”
Director of Marketing for DEXIS, Rick Matty said, “DEXIS is honored to accept the ‘Best of Class’ Technology Award. The DEXIS team appreciates the knowledge, experience, and many hours of research that the esteemed panel has dedicated to this arduous process. We are grateful for the recognition of our quality products that enhance the dental experience for clinicians and patients and improve workflow in the office.”

Going on Vacation? Send your Surgical Telescopes for some R&R as Well! PDF Print E-mail
For those of you who have been to one of my lectures, you know how passionate I am about magnification.  One of my instructors once told me "to do well, one must see well".  Nowhere does that statement bear more truth than in the practice of dentistry.

When Dr. Huebner joined the practice, one of the first things he did was to replace his old set of surgical scopes from his dental school days to a higher mag XV1 system from Orascoptic.  The  XV1 is pictured below.  It is a fully self contained magnification system.  By self contained I mean that the batteries are located in the arms of the glasses which means no cords or battery packs.

This week, Dr. Huebner got an email from Orascoptic letting him know his scopes are now 1 year old & also reminding him that Orascoptic offers a service where Orascoptic staff will perform maintenance to make sure the scopes are in tip top shape.

If you are hooked on magnification like I am, you know how much you would suffer if you suddenly had to perform treatment without it.  By having Orascoptic perform maintenance, you minimize the chance of a catastrophic problem (such as having an arm come off... which once happened to me) and are assured the scopes are returned to "like new" condition.

So my recommendation is while you are away this summer enjoying a relaxing vacation, send your surgical scopes out and have them given the "spa treatment" too.  That way, you are not without magnification while seeing patients.  This kind of preventive maintenance just makes good sense.  One thing I've learned over my time in dentistry is that maintenance pays off.

If you are an Orascoptic user, you can call 800-369-3698 to schedule your maintenance & they will talk you through the process of sending your scopes to them in Middleton, Wisconsin.

3M Oral Care and the Kois Center Collaborate To Improve Oral Wellness Through Science-Based... PDF Print E-mail

Kois Center selects the 3MTM True Definition Scanner as its intra-oral scanner of choice
Seattle, WA – (July 23, 2015) – Digital technology is changing dentistry and dental education. The Kois Center has long been recognized as a leader in utilizing science and technology to advance dental education. Today, at its annual educational symposium in Seattle, the Kois Center announced a new partnership with 3M, a trusted leader in applying science and technology to improve oral care. The goal of the collaboration is to improve oral wellness through advanced technologies and education.
As a first step, the Kois Center has selected the 3MTM True Definition Scanner for its educational offerings. In addition, Kois will pioneer an advanced education course starting later this year for new digital workflows and applications utilizing the 3M True Definition Scanner. The Kois Center also announces a collaboration with Evidentiae software, a new web-based application designed to utilize accurate intra-oral scan data that’s based on Kois comprehensive risk assessment and treatment planning principles.
“The digital technologies to this point have been primarily used by dentists as a tool to automate existing dental procedures,” said Dr. John Kois, owner and founder of the Kois Center. “The exciting opportunity for us going forward is to utilize this new technology as an intelligent analytical system to predict, plan, and communicate treatment. To realize this vision, we needed an intra-oral data capture system that was not only highly accurate, affordable, and easy to use, but we also needed a partner like 3M who shares our values and our vision for the future.”
“A true digital replica of the oral anatomy will be an essential component of the patient record of the future,” said Dan McMaster, global business director of 3M Digital Oral Care. “Not just because it is the starting point of most advanced dental procedures, but it is the easiest way to communicate with the patient, and the most efficient way to monitor change over time. Dr. Kois
and the Kois Center have been truly visionary in understanding how to utilize this digital data to take the practice of dentistry to new levels, and we are excited to partner together with them on this most important health initiative.”
A preview of the new offering was introduced to the Kois faculty at the annual symposium today, and will begin an evaluation phase with select Kois faculty during the remaining half of 2015.

If You are an Android User Don't Get Stagefright! PDF Print E-mail

For mobile users, I really like Lookout to help keep your devices secure.  I have been using it for quite a while on both Android and iOS devices and have been very pleased with what it provides for me.

The company is also very good at keeping users informed of potential problems and threats.  This week, the good folks at Lookout contacted Android users with a warning about a new threat called "Stagefright".  Below is the info from the email Lookout sent to its Android users, if you'd like even more info on the threat, you can get the lowdown from this Lookout Blog post.

Last week a new security vulnerability that affects Android devices was discovered, called "Stagefright." We take our promise of giving you peace of mind seriously, so we wanted to reach out to explain the risk and provide a few steps you can take to protect your Android device.

What can Stagefright do?
Stagefright could allow an attacker to remotely control and steal data from an Android device by simply sending a victim a multimedia message (MMS) infected with an exploit. There are a number of apps that an Android device can use to receive MMS content such as Google Hangouts and the default messenger app. In order to fully be protected from this vulnerability, you will need to wait for a security update from your carrier, device manufacturer, or Google, who are the only ones who can patch this vulnerability.

What about my existing Lookout app?
The Lookout app you already use will protect you from potential malware that could take advantage of Stagefright exploits, but you will need to wait for an upcoming security update from your carrier, device manufacturer, or Google to ultimately patch this vulnerability.

Am I affected?

To check if your device is vulnerable to "Stagefright" and to learn how to disable MMS auto-fetching for added protection, download our new Stagefright detector app now.
