Dentistry Today


Patterson Dental will now distribute Align Technology’s iTero Element intraoral scanning system. The iTero is designed to enable dentists to scan in as little as 60 seconds, visualize changes in dentition, and perform restorative and orthodontic workflows that enhance their patient care and help them grow their practice.

“Align Technology’s overall strategy and broad portfolio of products complement our commitment to innovation and providing a best-in-class customer experience,” said Dave Misiak, president of Patterson Dental North America. “This agreement will help us better serve the unique needs of our customers and leverage our 20-year history of supporting CAD/CAM through the Patterson Technology Center.”

“Together, through combined digital technology and support offerings from the iTero and Patterson teams, we will help dentists transition to full digital workflows and enable them to respond more effectively to changing market demand,” said Raphael Pascaud, chief marketing officer and vice president of iTero for Align Technology. 

The iTero scanner will be available to dental customers through Patterson Dental in the United States and Canada beginning in September. The distribution agreement is non-exclusive. Additional details of the agreement are confidential.
