SUGAR HILL, Ga., Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lighthouse Practice Management Group, a premier provider of dental appointment reminder and retention marketing software that was acquired by Yodle earlier this year, today announced its flagship product, Lighthouse 360, is now certified as Dentrix G5 Connected. As a result, Lighthouse 360 can automatically confirm patient appointments stored in Henry Schein's Dentrix G5 practice management system, as well as update appointment confirmation status with patient responses to those reminders.

"A Dentrix G5 Connected version of Lighthouse 360 means both solutions can work together as one, helping our joint customers improve their workflow and patient experience," said Kevin Bunker, President at Henry Schein North America Dental Practice Solutions. "This integration helps our customers improve their digital dental offices and get the most from their technology investments."
"We are delighted that Lighthouse 360 is now certified Dentrix G5 Connected," said Brian Smith, CEO at Lighthouse and now Yodle's VP of Product and Marketing for its retention marketing division.
