Vancouver, British Columbia, October 2, 2017 – LED Medical Diagnostics Inc. (“LED” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: LMD) is pleased to announce that Dental Care Alliance (DCA) has selected the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiaries, LED Dental and Apteryx, Inc., as their preferred providers for dental imaging devices and software technologies.
Established in 1991, Dental Care Alliance is committed to the improvement of patient care through innovative practice-support solutions. DCA is one of the United States’ largest and oldest dental support organizations, with 265 affiliated practices across all dental specialties in 13 states. Dentists affiliated with Dental Care Alliance are free to focus on patient care without the encumbrances of business management or making large capital investments. DCA has made a commitment to providing cutting edge diagnostic and treatment planning technologies that are essential for delivering exceptional care for their patients.
“The combination of Apteryx and LED Dental imaging technologies provides our team with solutions that meet the unique needs of dental support organizations,” stated Mitch Olan, Executive Chairman of Dental Care Alliance. “Apteryx’s XrayVision software is not only a great image management and analysis system, but it also allows us flexibility in how we address aging imaging technologies across our organization. XrayVision allows us to continue utilizing existing imaging systems, while smoothly transitioning to LED Dental technologies as upgrades are needed.”
LED Dental offers a comprehensive portfolio of dental imaging devices, including TUXEDO Intraoral Sensors, the VELscope Enhanced Oral Assessment, 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanners and the RAYSCAN Alpha pan/ceph/CBCT. Dental Care Alliance will be investing in LED Dental imaging solutions moving forward for new locations and as existing technologies fail or require an upgrade in established practices.
Apteryx, Inc. is a leading developer of dental imaging software technologies, placing an emphasis on their open-architecture infrastructure that seamlessly integrates with a wide variety of imaging devices and practice management software systems. Apteryx was acquired by LED Medical Diagnostics in early 2017, becoming a sister company to LED Dental. The synergy between Apteryx and LED provides a one-stop solution that is uniquely suited to address the needs of any size practice, from single practitioners to large, multi-location dental service organizations and government enterprises.
“We are proud to be working with Dental Care Alliance to provide them with our end-to-end imaging solution,” remarked Lamar Roberts, President of LED and Apteryx. “Apteryx provides a unique offering in the industry, which delivers an exceptional budget and infrastructure advantage for DSO groups. The ability to utilize existing imaging devices without the need to purchase new equipment upfront allows investments in new technologies to be spread out over a period of time as older systems fail. When it is time to upgrade, we provide a single point of contact for sales and imaging support, so we can ensure that our customers’ software and imaging systems are all operating at peak performance.”
