Heartland Dental Care selects Kodak Digital Radiography Systems for its Dental Practices

Carestream Health : 05 September, 2007  (New Product)
Heartland Dental Care and PracticeWorks have signed an agreement that enables Heartland Dental Care to bring the benefits of digital imaging to the company┤s numerous dental practices.
The company will utilise Kodak RVG 6100 Digital Radiography Systems, Logicon Caries Detector Software, and Kodak 8000 Digital Panoramic Systems.

'We are pleased that our affiliated dentists are offering patients the latest advances in dental imaging technology to help achieve their goal of continuously improving the level of care provided to their patients,' said Dr Rick Workman, CEO of Heartland Dental Care. 'Heartland Dental patients will benefit significantly from this new digital technology.'

Heartland Dental Care performed extensive research before selecting Kodak Digital Products for their 200 dental practices. Heartland chose the Kodak RVG 6100 sensor because it offers the highest image quality available, a more comfortable patient experience due to a new sensor design and a new size 0 sensor. In addition, it allows for lower radiation exposure.

Heartland also selected LOGICON Caries Detector Software to assist their dentists in the difficult task of detecting proximal caries. A clinical study shows that the software enabled dentists to find 20 percent more cases of caries penetrating into the dentin of permanent teeth than they were able to find without Logicon Software. The newest version of the software, version 4.0, includes a training wizard that makes it easier to learn the software and automated tools that reduce the time it takes to obtain results.

The Kodak 8000 Digital Panoramic System allows the practitioner to obtain high-quality digital panoramic images. The user-friendly interface makes image programming easy, while the face-to-face positioning keeps patients comfortable and minimises errors. The system also offers low radiation exposure.

Customer support is a major reason that Heartland chose PracticeWorks. 'Our affiliated dentists, staff and patients have been extremely pleased with the benefits these technologies, and the support from PracticeWorks has been outstanding, particularly in service and training,' comments Dr Rick Workman of Heartland Dental Care.

'This agreement with Heartland Dental Care confirms that our digital radiography solutions provide the best option for dental practitioners as they plan their move to digital imaging technologies,' said Rich Hirschland, president, Dental Systems for Carestream Health.

'Heartland Dental Care is committed to providing the highest levels of care to their patients, and we are extremely pleased that the company has chosen our products to assist them in their digital evolution,' Hirschland noted.

PracticeWorks is the exclusive maker of Kodak Dental Systems
