Improve customer relationships

“Going virtual allows us to send cases back to an orthodontist to review and give good immediate feedback. We work much more interactively now with an orthodontist. Digital being better would be stating the obvious,” Ari Sciacca, lab owner, Digital Orthodontics, Australia.

“This is a tremendous change”

“Just two years ago, we were still sending our labs traditional impressions. It would take three to four weeks for appliance design and shipping. Now, it only takes two to three days for a retainer. This is a tremendous change!” Dr. Santiago Isaza Penco, Orthodontist, Italy.

Customer feedback

Stay competitive

“CAD/CAM has enabled us to compete against bigger labs. We can provide everything from digital study models, digital archiving to planning and manufacturing. And we can do it quickly,”

Stefano Negrini, lab owner, Italy.

CAD/CAD customization and accuracy

Use CAD/CAM customization and accuracy

“Going digital means that the work we do is now virtual. We can edit, save, share and even remake a patient’s appliance with just a click. It’s a much more effective way to work,” Team Ortodonzia Estense, Italy.

Reduce transportation and storage costs

“Being digital has cut-down our need for storage space tremendously. It has also helped us position our lab as more green. We use less material and have really reduced our shipping costs,”

Ari Sciacca, lab owner, Digital Orthodontics, Australia.

You’re always connected to the cloud

“Being a TRIOS-Ready orthodontic lab has benefitted us in two ways. One, orthodontists in the area using TRIOS® have discovered us. And two, we think digitally now. And that is a tremendous change. It has meant more precision, more uniformity in our production quality and a faster turnaround time for our customers,” 

Vincent Martin, Uzège Ortho lab, France.
