The new union builds on a decade-long alliance between the two firms whose goals and technologies complement one another making this an advantageous marriage for both companies and the clients they serve. Additionally, DentalXChange’s solution portfolio expands with the addition of ExtraDent’s Virtual Assistants solution which assists front office team members with revenue cycle management tasks so patient focus can be the number one priority.
