GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., US/HELSINKI, Finland: For more than 17 years, ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers have provided high-quality care to patients across the US. On 31 March, ClearChoice Management Services (CCMS), the administrative support team that serves the ClearChoice Dental Implant Center network, announced a new collaboration with Planmeca and Henry Schein that will further elevate the patient experience at the more than 75 ClearChoice centres in the network by enhancing their digital imaging technology services.

After extensive research and a pilot study that thoroughly examined multiple products, ClearChoice decided to integrate the Planmeca Viso G7, an advanced imaging unit, into the company’s nationwide network. Henry Schein Dental will manage the distribution and implementation of the full Planmeca suite in each ClearChoice implant centre.

According to ClearChoice, the company envisions the Planmeca Viso G7 as the hub of a digital treatment plan for patients, as it has the ability to combine CBCT, intra-oral and facial scans into a complete digital record that can then be used throughout the patient’s entire treatment process.

“The Planmeca Viso G7 offers strikingly clear scans, modules for creating surgical guides and significantly less radiation to the patient,” stated Dr Thomas Berry, vice president of surgical support for CCMS. He added: “The unit also has the ability to perform a 3D facial photo of the patient that overlays the CBCT image.”

“The combination of superior image quality, smooth workflow and ease of use made the Planmeca Viso G7 the perfect choice for ClearChoice,” said Planmeca USA president Glen Kendrick.

He continued: "Many of the innovative features of the Planmeca Viso G7 fit ClearChoice’s patient-centric approach, including Planmeca Ultra Low Dose imaging protocols and Planmeca CALM, a proprietary patient movement correction algorithm. With innovative technology coupled with our dedication to continuous and ongoing education of both clinicians and staff, Planmeca is ready to partner with ClearChoice to provide a high-quality and seamless experience for a complex dental procedure.”
