Dentistry Today


Medit and the Straumann Group have entered a global distribution partnership for intraoral scanners effective January 1, 2021. This agreement leverages the existing partnership of the two companies for dental lab scanners, they said.

The agreement includes Medit’s i500 intraoral scanner, which targets a range of applications. Last month, Medit released a software update designed to further enhance the i500’s capabilities.

With the agreement, the i500 will be integrated into Straumann’s prosthetic and clear aligner workflow solutions, including ClearCorrect. The alliance also will include the workflow between the Medit Link open collaboration platform and Straumann’s open software platforms for surgical planning, CAD/CAM prosthetics, and treatment services.

“We are pleased and proud to announce the partnership with the Straumann Group, a world-renowned corporation in the dental industry,” said GB (Gyu Bum) Ko, CEO of Medit.

“Medit’s i500 intraoral scanner has been highly appraised for its superb quality and excellent performance in dental applications. We are truly excited to get a step closer to attaining our vision of driving the adoption of digital dentistry through the partnership,” Ko said.

“A key strategic goal for the Straumann Group is to create the leading ecosystem for aesthetic dentistry, connecting all our digital solutions, services, and equipment with partners and third parties to provide seamless workflows for dentists and optimal treatment outcomes for patients,” said Guillaume Daniellot, CEO of the Straumann Group.

“Intraoral scanners have a pivotal role in this, and with Medit we will be able to include a very large segment of dentists for whom affordability has been a major hurdle,” said Daniellot.
