DS Core Updates
DS Core, Dentsply Sirona’s cloud-based platform, supports dental professionals throughout the entire patient journey, from image capturing to treatment. DS Core connects practice team members, equipment and services, enabling seamless collaboration with specialists, partners and labs. It also contains useful tools to aid in patient communication.
The company highlighted several updates to DS Core at the 2023 DS World clinical education:
- Communication Canvas Updates: The Communication Canvas in DS Core is a tool for patient communication where 2D and 3D media can be arranged and displayed side-by-side to support patient communication and drive acceptance. And it now allows annotations on 2D x-ray, 2D media, & 2D CBCT slices, comprising of freehand drawing and text. Furthermore, dentists can now share 2D media and DI scans straight from the Communication Canvas with patients – making file sharing with patients easy and GDPR/HIPAA compliant.
- Unified Ordering Updates: DS Core’s new integrated ordering solution connects dental practices with labs and services, making it easy to place and manage orders, and allowing a simple and supportive communication and collaboration. An update to the chat function further improves communication through better accessibility from mobile phones and by providing labs with the ability to export their worksheet as PDFs.
- Viewer Updates: The viewing capability in DS Core has been expanded to now support further data formats, such as STL and PLY, making DS Core a powerful communication and collaboration tool also for users of 3rd party IO-scanners.
SureSmileTM Simulator** powered by DS Core
“Imagine showing your patients their new smiles before they start treatment,” said the company in a statement. “With the new SureSmile Simulator, clinicians will be able to do just that, allowing the patient’s possible future smile to speak for itself.”
The SureSmile Simulator, powered by DS Core, empowers dental professionals to transform treatment conversations by showing patients the potential esthetic benefits and helping them make informed and timely decisions.
Prior to treatment planning, the SureSmile Simulator assists dental professionals in evaluating each case. By measuring initial models and generating estimated treatment duration and complexity from the post-simulation results, clinicians can enter the planning phase with greater insight.
Andreas Frank, EVP and Chief Business Officer at Dentsply Sirona, commented: “This year’s DS World theme, The Future of Care, is not just about imagining the possibilities of digital dentistry, but seeing these possibilities come to life with DS Core at the heart of our next wave of innovation in dental care.
“At DS World, we aim to unite with dental professionals to help them move forward with confidence and advance our shared vision of transforming dentistry together.”
