Dentrix Ascend Selected By Elite Dental Partners For Use In 96 Practice Locations


Henry Schein One’s Cloud-Based Practice Management System to Help Enhance Visibility and Simplify Management in Support of High-Quality Patient Care and Service Excellence

AMERICAN FORK, Utah, July 13, 2022 – Henry Schein One today announced that Dentrix Ascend, the Company’s cloud-based practice management system, has been selected by Elite Dental Partners for use by more than 200 dentists providing care in all 96 of its practices. The Chicago-based dental support organization (DSO) also chose IT solutions and infrastructure support from Henry Schein One’s TechCentral to enhance networking, and implemented Henry Schein One’s ePrescribe online prescription services.

After an evaluation of DSO practice management solutions, Elite Dental Partners selected Dentrix Ascend due to its centralized management capabilities, operational standardization, consistency with reporting, and Henry Schein One’s commitment to quality customer service. Elite Dental Partners has also enhanced service by making it easier for patients to manage their accounts through Dentrix Ascend’s integrated eStatement and online payment tools.

“We are pleased to be in a position to support Elite Dental Partners in their growth and we look forward to continuing our partnership into the future,” said Mike Baird, CEO of Henry Schein One. “With Dentrix Ascend offering an innovative suite of management solutions that simplify and automate daily tasks, we are committed to helping each team at Elite Dental Partners work smarter and faster, while improving each step of the patient experience.”

The 12-state DSO has worked closely with Henry Schein One and its parent company, Henry Schein Inc., in creating a streamlined vendor approach to support practices with management software, digital technology, IT hardware, and dental merchandise and equipment.

With Dentrix Ascend and its native digital imaging functionality, DSOs move the practice management software to the cloud to enhance efficiency and security and eliminate time spent on backups, software updates, and server issues. Dentists can access their data at any time, from any location, on any device. It simplifies the management of DSOs, providing a central database and business reporting while allowing individual sites the standardization they need.

“Elite Dental Partners is committed to using technology to help us provide industry-leading support so our practices can focus on providing unparalleled patient care and service,” said Lance Shopovick, President and COO of Elite Dental Partners. “Partnering with Henry Schein One and Dentrix Ascend helps us simplify administrative functions so practices can focus on patients.”
