Dublin, California, February 25, 2014 – Today MicroDental Laboratories, a network of dental labs committed to helping dentists thrive, announced the ability to fabricate a wide range of dental restorations from the new CS 3500 intraoral scanner by Carestream Dental. The company already fabricates restorations for a handful of dental practices that have CS 3500 intraoral scanners, including EMAX and Zirconia restorations.
"MicroDental is pleased to add the CS 3500 to the comprehensive list of digital impression scanners supported by our laboratories,” commented Kim Bradshaw, President and CEO of MicroDental Laboratories. "At MicroDental, we are devoted to embracing cutting-edge technologies and partnering with technologically sophisticated companies to enhance customer experience and patient satisfaction. Our partnership with Carestream Dental testifies to that intent.”
"As Carestream Dental expands into the CAD/CAM market, gaining the support of the top dental labs is critical,” said Ed Shellard, DMD, Chief Marketing Officer and Director of Business Development for Carestream Dental. “We’re excited about working with MicroDental Laboratories and what this means for our mutual customers.”
MicroDental Laboratories is one of the leading dental laboratory partners for dental practices that are shifting to digital dentistry. With a 30% year over year increase in cases submitted through digital impression scanners, dentists who go digital with MicroDental Laboratories experience a decrease in remakes and an increase in patient satisfaction. Dentists who go digital also qualify for MicroDental’s Impression Free rebate program, which helps cover the monthly lease of the digital impression system.
Carestream Dental’s CS 3500 allows dental professionals to easily acquire true-color 2D and 3D images in order to design restorations within their practice. Requiring no external heater, powder or trolley system, the scanner features high-angulation scanning of up to 45 degrees and a depth from -2 to +13mm. For further convenience, the CS 3500 is equipped with a unique light guidance system that aids in the capture of data during the image acquisition process.More information on the Carestream Dental and MicroDental Impression Free Rebate Program can be found by calling 800.229.0936.
