New Solution Enables Practice Growth to Mac Users

Henry Schein Practice Solutions reports a growing market demand for Dentrix Ascend (cloud-based) over Viive (Mac-based) as a dental practice management solution.

Mac dentists are choosing Dentrix Ascend because they can continue to use their Macs while gaining these benefits:

  • Worry-free, cloud-based practice management
  • Expansion to multiple offices
  • Mobile access to your practice data
  • Pay-as-you-grow affordability
  • Off-site data storage and assistance with disaster protection

Since the market has shown that cloud-based software is the future of dental practice management, and dentists are not choosing its Mac-based solution, Henry Schein is discontinuing the development and sale of Viive.

The company will continue to support Viive customers who remain on their customer service plans through August 31, 2018 with bug fixes, OS X compatibility development, CDT code updates and regulatory compliance updates.

Transfer Offer for Viive Customers

Henry Schein recommends that Viive customers’ transition to Dentrix Ascend, a cloud-based solution ideally suited for the future of Mac-based dental practices.

Viive customers who transition to Dentrix Ascend before August 31, 2017 will receive the following services for a fee of $1,500 for the first year of your subscription to Dentrix Ascend:*

  • One-year subscription to Dentrix Ascend
  • Implementation of Dentrix Ascend
  • Practice management system data conversion
  • Twelve hours of in-office training on Dentrix Ascend.

Viive customers may begin the transition as early as December 2016. To minimize practice disruption, Henry Schein support specialists will work directly with Viive customers to convert their office data to Dentrix Ascend.
