More From CDA



Finally getting all caught up from a few days at CDA and a few more with the Speakers Consulting Network. 
Here are some of the things that caught my eye while roaming the exhibit floor.

Dentsply is waiting on FDA 510 approval of their MTM System.  This is a new clear aligner system that is less expensive then other systems. More information is available on  MinorToothMovement.com web site.

Technology4Medicine has announced their new 1064XLase. This is a 1064nm 10 watt diode laser.  Its will sit on your counter. The coolest thing is the on board video guidance. If you need a refresher on preforming a procedure you can view the video right on the control screen.

Doctorbase is a patient review site that integrates with Social Networks such as Twitter and Facebook. This automates word of mouth referrals.

Dentrix released Dentrix Mobile, a remote access tool that allows dentists to view their appointment schedules and patient information from their smartphones and mobile devices. Dentrix Mobile is a new feature of the Dentrix G4 practice management system that provides dentists who are away from their practice secure access to the schedules of all their practice providers and patients, as well as important patient details such as prescriptions and medical alerts.
Dentrix Mobile runs on the latest smartphones and mobile devices, including BlackBerry®, iPhone™, iPad™, Palm Pre™ and Android™.

Gendex  unveiled the GXS-700 intraoral sensors. As the eighth generation digital sensor from Gendex, the GXS-700 system comes from a strong lineage of imaging excellence, raising the performance bar for other digital sensors. From enhanced image acuity and improved patient comfort, to portability, ease-of-use and product sustainability, these new sensors underscore the company’s desire and commitment to help advance dental practices with innovative and affordable solutions. My lecture partner John Flucke has been using them and says they are great.

Curve Dental the web based alternative practice management software is moving along in their development. Look for bigger things to come from this company.

Air Bug is an isolation device that is a bite block while retracting the patients tongue and cheek at a very affordable price.



Guru patient education software has many new features along with iPad compatiability.

There will be a few more CDA  postings over the next few days.
Well that's all folks!
