MELVILLE, N.Y., Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  Henry  Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners, capped 2013 with recognition for its Mac®- and PC-based practice management solutions by key industry media and research-based companies.

In Dentaltown's annual end-of-year issue, highlighting the best products of the year, Dentrix received three Townie Choice Awards for Dentrix® G5, Dentrix Perio Chart add-on and Dentrix Mobile. Dentrix G5, a comprehensive, integrated dental practice management system with an open-platform architecture, was recognized for its "overall operational excellence;" the Dentrix Perio Chart add-on, which enables periodontists to track and record patients' diagnostic results, was recognized for "best periodontal charting software;" and Dentrix Mobile, a smartphone and tablet extension, was tapped for "best practice management software enhancement."

Dentrix Ascendâ„¢ was recognized in Dental Products Report's Top 100 edition as one of the Top 5 Upgrades and Innovations of 2013. Dentrix Ascend, a new web-based practice management system, was released to beta in February and is now available to the general public. The release of Dentrix Ascend also marks the first cloud-based system available through a major dental software developer.  

Additionally, Viive®, Henry Schein's practice management solution for Mac computers, was awarded the Pride Institute's prestigious Best of Class award in emerging technology, the only practice management software system, and the only Mac product, chosen by the Pride Leadership Panel to receive this award. Built specifically for Mac enthusiasts, Viive has a unique workflow that reflects Apple's simplicity and aesthetics with features and functionality to help meet the needs of practices.
