Partnership Offers Clinicians the Opportunity to Send Cases Directly to Labs
ATLANTA—Carestream Dental has partnered with exocad, an OEM dental CAD/CAM software solutions provider, to offer systems integration with the CS Solutions product portfolio.
exocad design software is compatible with Carestream Dental’s CS 3500 intraoral scanner, which allows practitioners to easily acquire true color, 2D and 3D images. Requiring no external heater or trolley system, the CS 3500 features high-angulation scanning of up to 45 degrees and to a depth from -2 to +13mm. Additionally, the CS 3500 uses open-format STL files for easy sharing and can be plugged directly into a computer’s USB—making it a truly portable scanner option. The integration with exocad benefits practices that wish to incorporate digital impressions and easy collaboration with labs into their workflow.
Using exocad's cloud service “dentalshare,” clinicians and client labs can collaborate more rapidly. New workflows, such as lab-assisted chairside CAD/CAM, can now be created by any laboratory or clinician. The ability to transfer even large and complex cases in minimal time fosters new business opportunities and efficiencies for resellers, while allowing labs and clinicians to build their business by increasing productivity and strengthening personal relationships.
"As Carestream Dental expands into the CAD/CAM market, the ability to integrate with other CAD/CAM software providers is critical," Joe Andrasko, regional product manager, CS Solutions, Carestream Dental, said. “We are looking forward to working with exocad and we are excited to offer this solution to our customers.”
Resellers of exocad software will be able to offer a unique and innovative workflow solution to their customers by pairing the CS 3500 with exocad’s new dentalshare software feature. Due to the integration, validation and certification of Carestream Dental’s clinical solutions, the implementation risk to resellers is low. Installation, training and support for the CS 3500 are provided by Carestream Dental, allowing resellers to continue to focus on providing exocad software support and service.
"We immediately found development synergy with Carestream Dental’s CS 3500 intraoral scanner and our new dentalshare real time lab collaboration,” Larry Bodony, president, exocad America, said. “The ability for our technologies to combine is extremely beneficial to a clinician’s workflow and we are excited to work with Carestream Dental in this partnership moving forward.”
