Medit, makers of the award-winning i700 scanner, announced a distribution agreement in North America with Henry Schein Dental, a global solutions provider of dental products and services, to help optimize workflows and improve operational success and clinical outcomes of dental practices.
“Medit is pleased to collaborate with Henry Schein, as doing so helps align our company and products with a tremendous community of like-minded manufacturers and distributors in the dental industry,” said Brian Connolly, VP of Business Development for Medit USA. “Our open-platform Medit i700 scanner, much like Henry Schein’s software solutions, helps dentists streamline workflows to minimize chair time and maximize patient care, as well as help enhance overall practice productivity.”
Featured at the Henry Schein booth during the 2022 Chicago Midwinter Dental meeting, the Medit i700 scanner is powered by a super-fast camera that captures up to 70 frames per second. This means more data with each pass, resulting in a smooth and quick scanning experience with realistic colors and a crisp image.
The camera and other internal components have been reduced in size creating a new handpiece that is smaller and lighter, weighing just 245g (8.64oz). The tips have been redesigned and are now reversible and autoclavable 100 times, increasing comfort of use and ease of maintenance. The Medit i700 scanner can be directly connected to a personal computer using a power delivery cable, helping improve the consultation experience and enhancing communication with dental labs through a real-time cloud-based system.
“We at Henry Schein are dedicated to helping dental practice owners harness the power of digital technology,” said AJ Caffentzis, President, US Dental Distribution, Henry Schein. “We’re pleased to now offer the Medit i700 scanner as part of our portfolio, and look forward to helping our customers seamlessly implement this technology into their practices.”
