E4D Design Center and Mill as the first trusted chairside connection

RICHARDSON, Texas and ST. PAUL, Minn. – (October 18, 2012) –3M ESPE and D4D Technologies announced today the E4D Design Center and E4D Mill as the first trusted chairside connection for the newly released digital impression system, the 3M™ True Definition Scanner from 3M ESPE.  3M announced earlier this week that the stand-alone digital impression system will allow for open connections with third-party systems through the 3M Connection Center.

“We believe dentists want choice and flexibility, and that many of our customers will want the option to design and fabricate metal-free restorations chairside in the office,” said Mark Farmer, President, 3M ESPE.  “By establishing a connection with the E4D Design Center and E4D Mill, 3M True Definition Scanner customers will have the option to mill in the office for same-day restorations through a reliable connection that has been clinically tested by 3M and D4D.”  
“This collaboration with 3M and their True Definition Scanner along with the introduction of the E4D Sky™ network and new design software (v4.5), provide dental professionals with a truly open network of chairside restorative solutions for patient treatment,” said Gary Severance DDS, D4D Technologies.  “We are extremely pleased and honored that 3M selected E4D as its first trusted connection.”
The 3M True Definition Scanner and the E4D Design Center and E4D Mill are available separately or as an integrated CAD/CAM system through Henry Schein Dental.

Both 3M ESPE and D4D Technologies are exhibiting at the ADA annual session in San Francisco from October 18-21, 2012. For more information, visit 3M ESPE at www.3MESPE.com/TrueDef and booth #5644, C7N and D4D Technologies at booth # 1036.
