And explore the advantages of going digital with DDX.

DDX is ready to help you:

  • Save time and boost efficiency with an intelligent online service that makes it easy for your customers to gather, package and double check all of the x-rays, photos and documents they need to complete a lab case. This improves accuracy, streamlines workflows and keeps errors to a minimum.

  • Impress your customers and improve your service by sending practices instant confirmations and case return dates while their patients are still in the chair.

  • Stay safe and compliant by making sure patient and case information is always transmitted and stored securely—unlike email attachments, commercial file sharing services and thumb drives.

  • Access all of your casework no matter what happens. Because DDX stores all of your casework information safely in the cloud, you always have access—even if your own systems go down or get damaged. DDX also maintains a complete archive, so you can instantly access every case you've ever received.

  • Take advantage of the technology you already use. DDX offers fast, easy integration with a long list of lab management software, and it has become the standard for secure digital exchanges.

  • Go digital quickly and painlessly with a solution that doesn't require any extra hardware, software or technical expertise.

DDX provides a complete, proven set of features and capabilities that will streamline your workflow, eliminate common errors, improve communications between your lab and your customers and keep patient information safe and compliant.

Case Submission:

  • Customized online case submission forms make it easy for you to collect all of the information you need from your customers to complete cases.

  • A complete list of procedures offered by your lab appears automatically, with the most common procedures appearing near the top.

  • Intelligent, adaptable prescription forms automatically display all of the required and optional information you require for specific procedures.

  • A convenient “Add Procedures” function makes it easy for your customers to add multiple procedures to a single case.

  • Instant two way messaging makes it easy for your customers to communicate with you quickly—and save a complete record of your conversations.

  • Instant confirmation. The moment you receive a case, DDX automatically sends a confirmation and a scheduled return date.

  • Easy file attachment allows practices to quickly attach and upload all kinds of digital files and other types of information. All of these attachments appear together in one convenient window.

Case Management:

  • A convenient online management portal provides information about your incoming and outgoing casework activity from any computer with an Internet connection.

  • An Alerts and Activities window offers useful, real-time information about active cases, including notifications when your customers add new case notes and alerts when cases don't reach your lab or your customer's practice on schedule.

  • Electronic pick-up and shipment alerts streamline your operations and keep your patients informed and up-to-date.

  • Detailed case information is available throughout DDX, so you can always get the latest status information and explore other important details about every active case.

  • Complete case archives allow you to search for and access every case that has been entered into the DDX system—whether it was last week or three years ago.

Security and Compliance:

  • Advanced encryption keeps private patient information safe and compliant through every step of the prescription process.

  • Secure data centers with the very latest security and data protection technology keep sensitive casework information protected and backed up at a secure offsite location. That means you can recover case and patient information quickly—even if your own systems go down or get damaged.

Compatibility and Integration:

  • Easy integration with the most popular lab management solutions, including Labnet, Inventrix Labtrac, Magic Touch Software and ABS Evolution.

  • Compatibility and support for leading restoration technologies, including Dental Wings, D4D Technologies, Envision Tec, 3Shape, Planmeca, Anatamage and more.

  • Smart Envelopes that automatically package and transmit complete cases from leading dental CAD CAM solutions.

"The market is changing and DDX really supports the digital growth that dentists require. As offices become more digital, DDX will be the portal they need to transfer everything to me."

—;Tom Love, General Manager, Robertson Dental Laboratories

"Now, I can just click a button right in Dentrix, and the lab prescription is pre-populated with all of my patient's info. I attach an impression scan, click Submit, and I'm done. It takes seconds. It's saved me and my team a huge amount of time with prescriptions. I'd say it's cut 30% of our calls to check on return dates. And it's free."

—;Fred Peck, DDS

"Once dentists and laboratories understand the power of digital integration with DDX and how revolutionary it is for the lab industry, it will absolutely transform the business. We couldn't be more excited about this technology."

—;Bob Miller, Owner, Custom Milling Center (CMC)

"Since we got DDX Enabled a few years ago, we've seen around 30% of our customers send us more work than they used to. But it even goes further than that. When our clients get DDX-Enabled and start completing their prescriptions online, it makes the case ready for scheduling within our production software automatically. We have cut down on mistakes by as much as 20%, and we have improved staff efficiency both in our lab and the dental practice. This literally means we can produce more cases."
