“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
Expand services and attract new customers
“Our lab went digital with 3shape five years ago, since then we have seen major growth. We can now offer a super fast, super accurate, fully digital solution to our customers,” Darren Mitchell, Managing Director, UK.
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.
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.
My best year ever
“Going digital has literally saved my business. After a fantastic year in 2011, we were on a steady decline as doctors switched to in-house made clear retainers. By offering new services and just the ability to accept scans and print 3D models, the business is not only profitable again but we surpassed our best year and are seeing a steady increase in work and new accounts. I went from 5% of my work coming in digitally to 30% in one week. By the end of 2018, I am expecting that to be 90%. Labs have to be ready for the demand and place themselves in a position to diversify their services as the technology evolves. 3Shape has allowed me to move beyond the Hawley and Hyrax Lab,”
