• New software platform will seamlessly connect nearly 1,000 Aspen Dental offices with Dental Labs – through simple and cost-effective automated digital infrastructure 

  • Advancements in communication and collaboration tools will help provide better dental care for more people

CHICAGO, Ill., Dec. 06, 2021 – Aspen Dental today announced a partnership with MyLabConnect – in an effort to continually advance technologies, improve processes, and bring better dental care to more people across nearly 1,000 Aspen Dental locations nationwide.  


The partnership with MyLabConnect, which goes live on December 6, 2021, will allow every Aspen Dental practice across the country to communicate and collaborate with their preferred dental labs, through a simple, common front-end interface software platform, in real-time.  

“Aspen Dental is continually improving its technology and innovating in the clinical setting,” said Gina Bruzzichesi, chief operating officer at The Aspen Group. “This partnership with MyLabConnect will allow better, faster, and more efficient internal and external communication and collaboration between Aspen Dental practices and their preferred dental labs – resulting in better care for more people.”

BETTER TECHNOLOGY, FOR BETTER CARE

The new cloud-based platform offers a single source for Aspen Dental doctors and staff to:  
  • Electronically order and track the status of Rx 
  • Manage integrated IOS digital and chairside service workflows  
  • Digitally integrate with their preferred dental labs 
  • Track and manage communications with dental labs and design centers  
“Having a single platform to manage the flow of communications will allow the doctors to spend less time on paperwork, so they can have more time to focus on what matters most – patient care,” said Bruzzichesi. “And, what makes the MyLabConnect platform even more convenient is that it is a multilingual platform that doctors and their teams can use on desktop or on mobile.”  

“When we set out to create this platform, in partnership with The Aspen Group, we knew we needed to make it convenient for the doctors,” said Niranjan Ramakrishnan, CEO of MyLabConnect. “This is a major milestone and proud moment in the MyLabConnect journey, as we work together with Aspen Dental to break down barriers and bring simple yet comprehensive communication solutions to more than 3,800 doctors at nearly 1,000 dental practices across the country.”  

BETTER TECHNOLOGY, FOR BETTER COLLABORATION

The new platform from MyLabConnect will allow Aspen Dental doctors and staff to communicate more effectively and efficiently with external dental labs by creating a single platform that is simple to use. 

“Dentalle believes in being at the forefront of change and revolution in dentistry by leveraging the best materials and technologies,” said Warren Su, President of Dentalle. “As Aspen Dental’s longest tenured preferred lab, we are extremely excited to have worked together with Aspen Dental and MyLabConnect to pilot the program throughout the past year to ensure a seamless integration with our Lab Management Systems to facilitate the launch of this new technology. This new end-to-end interface for Aspen Dental will continue to drive The Aspen Group to new heights under its visionary leadership team.”   

“The new MyLabConnect platform will provide a seamless bi-directional integration with Intra Oral Scanners,” said Chris Lauro, president of Healthstar Dental, another key lab provider and preferred partner of Aspen Dental. “This improved process will allow our team to spend less time on booking cases and more time on providing better quality customer support to the Aspen Dental practices across the nation.”
