EFFINGHAM, Ill., Dec. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Heartland Dental, the nation’s leading dental support organization (DSO) with over 1,700 supported practices nationwide, announced today it has selected VideaHealth, the leading dental AI software company, as its dental AI partner after a collaborative multi-year evaluation between the two companies. VideaHealth’s strong focus on the dental clinician and their ecosystem strategy with Henry Schein One and their market leading product capabilities were critical factors for the decision.
Heartland Dental President and CEO Pat Bauer said, “For more than 25 years Heartland Dental has maintained an uncompromising commitment to providing the best products and services for our supported doctors to choose from. We’re proud to enhance our already deep relationship with Henry Schein One and expand upon their collaborative relationship with VideaHealth by making VideaAI available to our supported practices, enabling the nation’s largest integrated dental AI footprint. Our work together enhances clinical and operational support, along with the opportunity to accelerate world class innovation in Revenue Cycle Management (RCM).”
Over the coming 3 months, as supported practices are trained, the benefits of these technologies will be available across Heartland Dental’s more than 20,000 supported doctors, hygiene providers, and team members as they serve millions in their communities. These tools will help them further enhance oral and total body health along with a host of productivity and workflow improvements. A VideaHealth study across 470,000 patients showed a significant increase in the identification of clinical needs for doctors to discuss with their patients. With world class imaging and workflow support, it enables patients to better receive the care they need and want.
VideaAI’s diagnostic tools and huddle dashboards support the entire dental team’s ability to deliver better care through improved clinical operations, while offering an embedded workflow into Henry Schein One software. Furthermore, Henry Schein One’s Dentrix Detect AI powered and manufactured by VideaHealth’s AI is already available to more dentists, in more practices, than any other dental AI on the market and is being integrated into tens of thousands of dental offices.
Florian Hillen, CEO, VideaHealth shared, “Heartland Dental has been a great partner for several years now to build a best-in-class product. Furthermore, Heartland is one of the best of its kind when it comes to bringing new technologies to their supported providers and working together with them for years helped us to create the processes necessary to successfully roll out AI solutions to thousands of dentists that lead to actual adoption and better clinical results.”
Christine King, Executive Co-Chair for Henry Schein One, said, “The adoption of critical technologies like AI will be led by world-class organizations like Heartland Dental. Henry Schein One is excited to support the rollout of embedded AI for clinicians at Heartland Dental to enable excellent clinical care and operational excellence for all patients.”
