VideaHealth and Henry Schein One Expand Partnership to Bring Dental AI to Hygiene Schools

Detect AI, powered and manufactured by VideaHealth, now available to Dentrix, Dentrix Ascend and Ascend Academic customers

AMERICAN FORK, Utah, & BOSTON, Mass., April 15, 2024 - VideaHealth, the leading dental AI software company, and Henry Schein One, a leader in dental software, today announced an expanded partnership to bring AI to the dental education market through Henry Schein One cloud-based academic software, Ascend Academic. Detect AI powered and manufactured by VideaHealth is now available to Dentrix, Dentrix Ascend, and Ascend Academic customers.

Today, nearly 7,000 dental hygienists are expected to enter clinical practice each year (The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics), yet that number is insufficient to meet the demand from dental practices. With Detect AI powered and manufactured by VideaHealth, hygiene students will become faster, more accurate, and more efficient when reviewing radiographs, accelerating their learning curve and bringing new skills and insight to program graduates.

Jonathan Brennan, MD, DMD, MPH, associate dean of innovation and curriculum at Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health (ATSU-ASDOH), said, "Dental AI's positive impact in an educational setting cannot be overstated, as it offers the opportunity for students to refine their diagnostic skills before they ever see a patient. I expect that clinicians trained in school with dental AI will graduate with finer skills than ever before, with a higher degree of confidence in their treatment recommendations as well as greater diagnostic accuracy."

VideaHealth’s investment in education will kick off with a focus on dental hygiene schools, conducted in partnership with Henry Schein One, and will provide near immediate access to Detect AI through the seamless integration with Ascend Academic. In addition to partnering on the technology integration, VideaHealth’s investment includes the creation of training modules to equip educators with the proper tools and information to best leverage dental AI in the classroom.

"Today Henry Schein One serves 80% of U.S. dental academic institutions with our axiUm solution portfolio," said Rachel Nelson, VP, Global Academic Solutions. "As we continue to expand our presence across the dental education industry and into dental hygiene schools with Ascend Academic and Detect AI, we can further empower hygienists to utilize AI, significantly reducing dental problems through patient education and early detection."

Students learning and training with dental AI insights can simulate patient cases and real-time feedback, enhance their interpretations and treatment planning skills before ever entering clinical practice, and help jump-start their careers. In addition, they will be able to hone their treatment recommendation skills, bolstered by sophisticated patient visualizations.

Florian Hillen, CEO of VideaHealth, said, “This is a milestone moment for the market. Educators have been asking for dental AI to help train their students, and we are proud to meet that need. Dental AI is an invaluable tool; helping future clinicians develop their skills, experience, and insight will give them the confidence to do their work well and to share those insights with patients.”
