DEXIS, an industry leader and the manufacturer of the highly awarded DEXIS Digital X-ray system, is now in the process of completing its development for the Mac platform and will soon be expanding its Imaging Suite of products to natively support Apple hardware and the OS X operating system (10.8 or newer).
DEXIS is pleased to preview its outstanding Mac product at an exclusive press event during the Greater New York Dental Meeting. DEXIS Mac is an innovative dental imaging solution that offers dentists a unified experience across Mac and iOS products. Once released, the native OS X software will provide clinicians with a highly efficient digital imaging workflow and seamless integration with leading Mac-based practice management programs Viive and MacPractice.

Dentists who have been looking for a native dental imaging software for the Mac will soon be able to enjoy the combination of this exciting new DEXIS release with the established user experience of Apple products. The DEXIS software will provide an intuitive user interface and advanced functionality that Mac users expect – combined with tried-and-true DEXIS image management and enhancement tools.
A tight integration between DEXIS Mac, the award-winning DEXIS go app for patient communication, and the just released DEXIS photo app for extra-oral image acquisition is in the making as well and will add even more effectiveness for the Mac-based dentist. The apps collectively operate on iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Recognizing the fact that both patient education and case presentation is immensely important, DEXIS Mac will support both Mac OS X full-screen mode and AirPlay mode for presenting on larger displays.
DEXIS Mac is scheduled to be formally introduced in Q2 of 2014.

DEXIS also announces the release of the DEXIS photo app, which provides a fast and easy way to add photos directly into DEXIS Imaging Suite using iPhone and iPod Touch*. The app lets clinicians frame the shot and capture the photo right into the patient record — wirelessly, automatically and instantaneously; no cards, no readers, no manual file transfer.
With the two functions of DEXIS photo, dental professionals can choose to capture patient ID photos that can be viewed from any imaging screen in DEXIS or to take and send images for the software’s extra-oral photo screen. Using the applicable mobile device and DEXIS photo, these tasks can be performed easily and seamlessly when in proximity to and interacting with the DEXIS Imaging Suite software.
“After the release of our last app, DEXIS go, we were praised for our use of contemporary technology that was adapted to a valuable dental application,” states Adam Palermo, Product Manager for DEXIS. “We know from research that mobile devices are widely used in dental practices, and we are embracing this technology to improve clinical workflow.”
DEXIS photo allows dental professionals to experience a simple, modern workflow that offers time savings, clinical support and patient interaction. Not only is this app effortless and enjoyable to use, it can help to maintain HIPAA compliance since images are not stored on the mobile device; rather they are securely stored within DEXIS.
DEXIS photo will be available on the Apple App store at the end of December 2013.To find out more about DEXIS photo, visit www.dexis.com/apps.
*The DEXIS photo app works with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 5th generation in the initial release; requires iOS 7 or greater.
