VENICE, Florida--XCPT, LLC has signed an agreement with Harvard University to place XCPT's Treatment Planning and Communication Software solution at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine.
XCPT's software is a highly graphic, face-to-face, patient consultation and treatment planning method that recognizes the importance of visual learning during treatment planning. With XCPT, the patient is involved in every step of the dental treatment process as the clinician uses the patient's own x-rays, CT scans and photographs to communicate treatment options and solutions.
"XCPT's software helps patients decide what is best for them in a trusting, open environment," said Dr. Steven J. Feldman, CEO of XCPT. "With its use, we're seeing doctors gain productivity and increased case acceptance by simply showing the patient what they see."
The signing of the agreement reinforces XCPT's strategy to be the treatment planning and communication software of choice for the leading dental schools and dental practices throughout the country.
"Harvard School of Dental Medicine students and faculty are looking forward to working with the treatment planning and communication software which we are sure will allow us to explain our cases more clearly to our patients. We highly anticipate our use of XCPT as a clinical and educational tool," said Nadeem Karimbux, DMD, MMSc, the Assistant Dean of Dental Education and Acting Program Director for the Periodontology Department.
"We're honored and pleased to have forged this arrangement with Harvard," said Dr. Steven J. Feldman, CEO of XCPT. "From the time of our first meeting with Dr. Karimbux and his team, we were excited about the prospects of becoming integrated into the curriculum and clinical work at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. We see the natural fit between our software's communication capabilities and the school's clinical needs."
The first university-based dental school in the country, Harvard Dental School was founded in 1867. It was also the first to be established in close affiliation with a medical school (Harvard Medical School) and to make the full scholarly and scientific resources of a university available to dental education.
Its mission is to produce leaders who advance knowledge and discovery, serve the community through patient care and advocacy, and contribute to improved oral health and the quality of life.
XCPT Treatment Planning and Communication Software was developed to provide an innovative communication method for patients and their healthcare professionals. With its adoption, communication becomes clearer for dental teams in their relationships with patients, their team members, and their referral networks.
