TiScrubs are here! Real performance wear for the healthcare professional!

Dear Colleagues,

I  co-founded a dental charity with Jason Krause of Henry Schein called TeamSmile Dental Outreach for Children eight years ago to help the underserved children of our communities with their dental needs.  With the help of Dustin Colquitt Pro-Bowl punter of the Kansas City Chiefs and the rest of the NFL and other professional sports teams we are making a difference.

Thank you to Henry Schein, Dentrix, Colgate, DEXIS, Midmark, and all our sponsors and volunteers!

About two years ago I was at a TeamSmile event when I wondered, "Why can't our healthcare professionals look and feel as awesome in their scrubs as the athletes do in their uniforms?"

From there, and many iterations later, a new type of healthcare scrub was born! Named after the tough and lightweight element, Titanium, TiScrubs offers healthcare professionals an alternative to traditional scrubs. They are moisture-wicking, antimicrobial and extremely functional and great-looking. They are the first true performance-wear scrubs.

I am proud to announce that TiScrubs will be available starting this week at www.tiscrubs.com. And, perhaps even more importantly, I am excited to say that TiScrubs will donate a portion of the proceeds from EVERY SALE to TeamSmile!

As of this year, we have helped over 15,000 children receive the dental care they need, and we couldn't have done that without you. Thank you for making this dream a reality and for your continued support. If you would like to learn more about TiScrubs or to purchase a pair, please visit www.tiscrubs.com.

Dentrix and DEXIS are the Official Software providers for TeamSmile.  Feel proud of your software choice.  The leader in technology and philanthropy!

DEXIS Go App is Incredible!

If you use DEXIS and are not using the latest version DEXIS Imaging Suite Version 10 you are missing out big time.  It is a free App that you download from iTunes.  Once downloaded, it will mirror your DEXIS database and you can bring all the patient's images right to their lap on the iPad..


1. Your are physically handing off their problems to them for immediate exploration.  
2. They can pinch and pull the images to get an up close look that even the regular DEXIS software can't   provide. i.e. one level of zoom from the magnifier tool.
3. We take seven photos of their teeth (same photos that Invisalign requires for a case submission)as a new  patient.  And when they are waiting for the doctor they get to take tour of their mouth.This is co-discovery the high tech way!
4.  Patients can access their oral condition and than ask questions.  They sell themselves on the treatment they need before you even enter the room.

Give it a try, get moving!

Make a note of that!

A Dentrix Feature which I love that not many use is the, Dentrix “Chart Notations Tool”.  It is located right next to the Primary/Permanent tooth button.  You can use it to:
      1.        Draw Supernumerary teeth
2.       Flag teeth with a certain color dot or chisel mark that reminds you that you had the talk with the patient about the possibly of the tooth needing root canal treatment in the future because of the depth of the restoration that you just placed.  This way with a quick glance at the chart it will trigger your memory  that you spoke, and if the tooth does need treatment in the future you can remind them that you flagged that tooth for possible future treatment.  If they don’t you look like the hero and if they do you look like you are prepared.
3.       You can place numbers for the Diagnodent readings if you use that devise.
4.       You can draw a symbol for oral pathology.
5.       You will find many uses that you can customize for your practice.

Give it a try! Get Moving!

PS Next Blog will be an update on the use of Dentrix Electronic Rx for Medications.  I have been using that feature for 2 months know and love it.
