3Shape teams with Carbon to host silent auction fundraiser for Arizona’s Brighter Way Institute

Copenhagen, September 18, 2018 – 3Shape, a global leader in 3D scanners and CAD/CAM software solutions for digital dentistry, along with digital 3D Manufacturer Carbon, will host a fundraiser to benefit the non-profit Brighter Way Institute.

Brighter Way Institute provides comprehensive oral health care to vulnerable adults, children, veterans, those experiencing homelessness, and individuals with special needs.

The fundraiser, comprised of a gala and silent auction, will take place as part of the Inaugural 3Shape Community Symposium – a two-day event hosted by 3Shape for dental professionals and focused on innovation in digital dentistry and taking place in Phoenix, Arizona.

3Shape, Carbon, and a symposium-attendee, Full Contour, are donating products worth $60,000 for auction at the fundraiser. 3Shape will donate 3D scanners, with Carbon donating a pair of Adidas Futurecraft 4D high-performance running shoes, and dental resins to the silent auction. All proceeds from the auction will go to Brighter Way Institute. Carbon previously donated one of its connect, data-centric printers to Brighter Way Institute.

“We’re very excited about the symposium and fundraiser. It’s a terrific opportunity to bring the dental community together as well as do something for the people here in Phoenix. Brighter Way is an important cause and we are proud to support it,” Nikolaj Deichmann, Co-Founder and Co-CEO, 3Shape.
