  • 3M Digital Oral Care Announces Improved Compatibility Between 3M™ Margin Marking Software and 3Shape Dental System™, exocad® DentalCAD and Dental Wings Software

    Digital workflows and new systems are rapidly changing the way today’s dentists and dental labs operate, but closed systems can limit choices – preventing doctors and lab technicians from working the way they want. In another transformative step towards broadening design options, 3M™ Margin Marking Software is now fully integrated with CAD/CAM design platforms 3Shape Dental System™, exocad® DentalCAD and Dental Wings. The improved workflow provides dental labs a seamless integration with the industry’s leading CAD/CAM systems, and dentists can now work with more labs, ultimately increasing access to a broader range of treatment options.

    Using the new Trusted Connections, 3M™ True Definition Scanner digital impression files are easily converted and imported into the 3Shape Dental System, exocad DentalCAD, or Dental Wings software, which have been updated with the latest design information for Lava™ materials. Designed to work exclusively with...

  • Don't Worry, it's Freemium!

    I attended a conference last week with some colleagues and throughout different presentations, I found myself writing down acronyms and new words and realized that even at the semi-young age of 33, I am old! I'm sure that I use words or phrases from time to time that throw my parents off for a beat, but last week, I was the one pulling out my phone to GTS (google that stuff).

    My favorite word of the week ended up being a favorite for a few of us, so that's why I'm using it today. The word: Freemium. According to wikipedia, this word is associated with a pricing strategy in which some products and/or services are free, but others have a premium attached.


    I would like to associate this word with our 3Shape Lab Scanners. Currently, we sell 4 different series (D500, D700/710, D800/810 and D900/D900L) and yes, these babies have quite a price tag on them. But here's the value... once you have purchased a scanner from Whip Mix, you get:

  • Straumann Reports Stable 9-month Net Revenues

    Straumann reported stable net revenues of CHF 519 million (-1% in local currencies) in the first nine-months of 2012. North America was the key driver throughout accompanied by strong growth in China and Latin America. However, these solid performances were not enough to compensate for sluggish sales elsewhere - particularly in Europe, where the tooth replacement market has suffered from further deterioration in the economic environment. In the third quarter, sales in local currencies were generally slower with the exception of the 'Rest of the World' region. As a result, Group net revenue for the quarter was 2% off the prior year level. In Swiss francs, however, the top line grew 4%, lifted by positive currency effects. In addition to the business results, the Group announced further initiatives in its strategy for digital dentistry. Straumann plans to strengthen its collaboration with Dental Wings by transferring its software development teams and increasing its stake in Dental Wings...
