May 29, 2002
Software upgrade is being shipped at a rate of 500 units per day.

Dentrix Dental Systems is now shipping DENTRIX® 9.0, the latest full-featured version of the industry's most-popular practice management system. DENTRIX is currently used by more than 17,500 dental practices as their preferred tool for increasing profits, and streamlining operations while facilitating seamless communication between the front office and operatory.

DENTRIX 9.0 is being shipped at a rate of 500 units per day. Shipments will proceed on a random lottery basis throughout the next several weeks until all new users and current users, who are eligible for the upgrade as part of their subscription to a maintenance program, have received the software.

"We are extremely proud of 9.0 and the new features it brings to the dental practitioner," said Jeff Harmon, sales director of Dentrix Dental Systems. "This release solidifies DENTRIX's position as the most thoroughly tested, stable product on the market today. The new features and enhancements we've added with this release will significantly enhance the clinical and business side of every practice that uses DENTRIX."

DENTRIX 9.0 introduces a host of new and enhanced features including the Document Center, Lab Case Tracking, electronic insurance attachments, and improved Webenabled capabilities.
"Document Center is perhaps the most exciting feature of 9.0," said Harmon. "Files, pictures, x-rays, and more can now be cross-linked with one another, and integrated with the patient's file within DENTRIX-it's like a virtual filing cabinet. Document Center represents the missing link to a truly paperless office."

DENTRIX 9.0 works seamlessly with the Digital Dental Office (DDO) total technology system, which includes the award-winning Dentrix ImageCAM, the state-of-the-art Dentrix ImageRAY digital x-ray sensor, and DENTRIX Image, a fully-loaded imaging suite. One of the hallmarks of DDO is full integration-no bridging software or software "links" are necessary. All Dentrix components work together flawlessly, simplifying the dental workflow.

"DENTRIX 9.0 will enable doctors everywhere to work more efficiently than they ever could before," said Harmon. "And that's good for doctors and patients everywhere."

As with previous releases of DENTRIX, version 9.0 provides seamless integration with Dentrix's Digital Dental Office (DDO) technology that includes award-winning imaging software, the top-rated intraoral camera, and the most fully integrated digital x-ray system available. DENTRIX 9.0 also leverages the advantages of the Internet to increase practice marketing and facilitate patient communication through its revolutionary DXWeb features.
