Carestream Dental Officially Opens New Global Headquarters
Earlier this year, Carestream Dental welcomed more than 400 Atlanta-based employees and guests to its new global headquarters with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The ribbon-cutting featured guests from the health and dental communities, including Dikembe Mutombo, representing the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation, which is dedicated to improving the health, education and quality
of life for the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo; and Sheri Anderson, representing the Dentistry for the Developmentally Disabled Foundation, which provides specialized oral health care to patients with developmental disabilities in Metro Atlanta.
Representatives from the county and metro chambers of commerce were also in attendance to speak to Carestream Dental’s role in expanding Atlanta’s position as a global health care hub.
The company transitioned to the 54,000-square-foot office space in December, but made the move official with the ceremonial ribbon-cutting.
Aspen Dental Opens
First Dental Office
Walgreens and Aspen Dental have announced a collaboration that will bring Aspen Dental-branded dental offices to two Florida Walgreens. A floss-cutting event was held at the Palatka, Florida, location in December; the second location is slated to open in the Tampa area in the second quarter of 2019.
Walgreens notes that the collaboration, which marks the first time that in-store dental services will be available to its customers, reflects the company’s commitment to transform its stores into neighborhood health destinations that provide a consumer-focused experience as well as access to a range of affordable health care services at a trusted and convenient setting.
Aspen Dental at Walgreens will offer a full range of dental services, dentures, implants and Invisalign clear aligners. New patients will receive a digital dental health scan to give them a clear understanding into what’s happening inside their mouth.

CareCredit Now Integrated into Henry Schein
Practice Management Solutions
Henry Schein and CareCredit have announced the integration of CareCredit’s financing tool into Henry Schein’s dental practice management software solutions. The integration offers dental practices more financing options for their patients while improving practice efficiency.
CareCredit integrates into Dentrix and Easy Dental, practice management software solutions offered by Henry Schein One, a joint venture of Henry Schein. CareCredit will give Henry Schein’s customers the ability to process CareCredit transactions that automatically write back to the ledger, saving time and minimizing human error.
Helping patients apply for CareCredit is also easier, because information is automatically transferred to the CareCredit application. As a result, practice teams can spend less time on administrative tasks and are required to complete only a few fields of information and click “submit” to receive a credit decision within seconds. Additionally, teams can look up a cardholder account number when a patient does not have his or her CareCredit credit card available.
