The Henry Schein Dentrix mission has been to create software for the personal computer that empowers dental offices to do more, accomplish more, and earn more. In addition to the Dentrix® practice management software, Dentrix also provides other products and solutions designed to enhance the dental office experience, such as automated data backups, electronic claims, payment card processing, automated billing statements, website development tools, appointment reminders, voice recognition software, and more.
Dentrix Dental Systems was the first practice management system for Windows back in 1989, and was the first to be approved for Windows 98. This deep, rich experience with the Windows operating system has aided us in our efforts to make sure our software is the most compatible in the industry.
Dentrix's early vision of a completely paperless, front deskless office is coupled today with a strong commitment to developing the tools necessary to boost productivity and improve efficiency. As the world's leading practice management software provider, Dentrix is striving to develop products that meet the evolving needs of every dental office.
The company has made substantial investments in establishing the finest technical services in the profession, which enables Dentrix to develop the highest quality products possible. Dentrix has also invested heavily in research and development, which, too, helps the company to keep abreast of the industry's technology curve.
Dentrix Dental Systems was founded in 1985 and acquired by Henry Schein, Inc. (nasdaq: HSIC) in 1997. Many of the original founders are still with the company.
