Third-party Image Conversions

Image conversion is available for Dentrix Imaging Center for new Dentrix customers. This offering provides for the bulk, automated conversion of images and metadata from third-party imaging programs to Dentrix Imaging Center.

Process Overview and Requirements

Your previous imaging program must have been integrated (bridged) with your previous practice management system. The imaging program must not be running as a stand-alone program with patients being entered directly into it.

The data from your previous practice management system must have been converted to Dentrix.

Depending on the size of your previous image database, you must provide Henry Schein One with a copy of your imaging data in one of the following ways: For a database that is smaller in size, you upload your imaging data to a secure website directly from your office.

For a database that is larger in size, Henry Schein One sends you an encrypted hard drive. When you receive the hard drive, a member of the conversion team remotely logs onto a computer in your office network and copies the necessary imaging data to the hard drive. Then, you send the hard drive back to Henry Schein One.

Scheduling

To schedule an imaging conversion, first, contact the Henry Schein One sales team to place an order. After the order is processed, a member of the Henry Schein One conversion team contacts you to verify the imaging program version and the amount of imaging data. Then, you schedule your imaging conversion. Typically, you must schedule your imaging conversion at least three weeks in advance. A conversion team member collects the imaging data from you one week prior to the desired conversion date.
