We are now back from the 2014 Chicago Midwinter Dental Meeting. It was an exciting meeting for all who attended, starting with Thursday’s opening day of the Exhibit Hall the XLDent Dental Practice Management Software was a big hit.
From there we moved into Thursday evening with XLDent’s annual sponsored event at Ditkas. Thank you to everyone who attended! We appreciate your support of mobile technologies and the work XLDent is doing to further development of the Electronic Dental Record.
XLDent had numerous tablets and options on display, which sparked the interest of many doctors and dental team members. We were busy with demonstrations up until the show closed on Saturday.
Looking forward to next year!
The IHE Dental Domain group is meeting today at ADA headquarters to discuss the 2014 Annual Session Exhibit. Topics this morning included a review of the SEDI profile and planning for the Teledentistry CE Course: A live demonstration of secure exchange of digital images. This teledentistry demonstration will use standards in commercially available Dental Imaging and Dental Practice Management software systems to securely exchange and display digital dental images and other patient treatment data.
This course will evaluate Electronic Dental Record and Dental Imaging System features for successful teledentistry exchange of images and data among vendor systems. Discussions will include real world methods of interoperable teledentistry exchange for patient treatment scenarios such as referrals, remote consultation, image submission to third party payers and patient transfers. Trends for the use of informatics interoperability standards for teledentistry exchanges will also be discussed as part of this course.
Our agenda this afternoon includes the SCDI Plenary Meeting and setting up the XLDent booth at McCormick Place in preparation for the Chicago Midwinter Meeting Exhibit tomorrow.
Today XLDent is at ADA headquarters in Chicago, IL working on Standards for Clinical Architecture in the Electronic Dental Record. As co-chair for working group 11.1, we’re responsible for defining the 1080 specification which is meant to be a guide for developers in the implementation of the 1067 specification. As a national leader in Dental Practice Management Software development, XLDent is proud to be part of this two day meeting to further the development of a standard for Electronic Dental Records. With advanced web-based dental solutions like ePrescribing, XLDent is staying in front of its future by helping to develop these standards.
This week the NDC group is having their annual meeting in Nashville, TN. The NDC group is a highly respected group of independent dental distributors that support and sell XLDent Dental Practice Management Software. Our mission this week is to help them better serve their dental clients with mobile, integrated software systems that help doctors improve clinical work flow and patient experiences. This is our 9th year working with the NDC group. We appreciate their partnership and shared commitment to the future of privatized dentistry.
This past weekend temperatures soared to 40 degrees here in central Minnesota. It was truly a January Thaw! Now temperatures are settling in the low to mid 20′s and we are hopeful of more snow. Minnesota is a state of all season activities. In the winter time, XLDent staff enjoy ice fishing, skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing. Thus, our wish for more snow.
The recent warm weather put a fresh “spring” in our step this past week. We continue to develop content material for our new Electronic Dental Records Toolkit and Dental Practice Management Systems content is also being reviewed. Progress is being made on scheduling more User Groups for 2014 as well. Stay Tuned!

“Baby it’s cold outside!” …as the Tom Jones song goes. It has been frigid since the first of January and this past week has been brutal! Temperatures plunged to 25-35 degrees below zero across Minnesota and wind chills of 60 degrees below zero were reported in northern and central Minnesota. “Brrr!”
We diehard Minnesotans were very well prepared for the Polar Vortex with hats, mittens and boots. The XLDent Team made the most of their time indoors by being super productive in these first two weeks of the year. By this time next year, all hospitals and health care providers must have in place an electronic health records system, so we
