Our Technology

PerioDX—Superior Diagnostics, Targeted Treatments.

The PerioDX test combines PCR and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) to find what bacteria is there, vs. a limited panel of what a dentist or patient tests for. Our technology is the best in class for oral microbiome testing.

About Our Lab

MicroGenDX—A global leader in NGS diagnostics of infection

MicroGenDX® laboratory has run over 500,000 next-gen DNA sequencing tests at our state-of-the-art, CAP-accredited, CLIA-licensed molecular diagnostic laboratory.

"What makes MicroGenDX unique is our rapid turnaround time, our price point, and our clinical research data that strongly supports the clinical utility of next-gen sequencing."

Rick Martin

MicroGenDX CEO

MicroGenDX Network Expansion

MicrpoGenDX already has in place, relationships with ENT, Orthopedic Surgery, Urology, Infectious Disease and Microbiology labs. This fact holds potential for expansion of the testing service and dental referrals that will increase utililization of the platform and acceptance of saliva screening with PerioDX as the standard of care.

No other dental lab has any of these relationships.

Education Resources

Keeping patients and health professionals current with oral microbiome Research

With our patient education bibliography, we allow patients and health professionals to easily stay “up-to-date” on Periodontal Disease and the Oral Systemic Connection.

Periodontal Infections And The Oral Microbiome

In Periodontal Disease, some bacteria become dominant and become pathogenic. This imbalance can cause inflammation and lead to chronic periodontal disease and lead to tooth and bone loss. The condition may also contribute to a number of system diseases.

Systemic Disease And The Oral Microbiome

The oral microbiome can have a major impact on your overall health. Understanding this relationships can help you take actions to improve your oral health for a better chance at improved overall health.

BioFilms Video Links

Groups of microbes that work together can form “Biofilms”. These communities often share resistance genes and communicate, making them difficult to eradicate. Dental plaque is biofilm.

Oral Microbiome Video Links

The oral microbiome is home to over 700 microbes. The types of microbes and quantities can affect your oral health as well as your overall health.

Oral Probiotics

Oral Probiotics can affect the types of microbes in your mouth. They can play an important role in affecting your oral microbiome over the long-term.
