Digital Smile Design (DSD), a company using 3D printing technology to enable advanced dentistry, and Formlabs Dental, a division of Formlabs, a 3D printing technology developer and manufacturer, have entered a new collaboration – underlining DSD’s continued commitment to joining forces with key organizations who share the same values, a vision for the future of dentistry, and a dedication to advancing the profession.
“Only great things will happen when we combine the teams from both sides to continue developing the future of dentistry. Among many other things, we share the same key value with Formlabs of inventing solutions to make the life of dental professionals easier,” said Dr. Christian Coachman, Founder, and CEO of DSD.
DSD has been a firm supporter of Formlabs Dental for many years, and has been using the company’s 3D printers since the Form 2 – having significant success in the DSD Lab which manufactures products for a client base around the world. DSD Lab currently owns five Form 3B printers, and plans to increase this number.
“Digital transformation in dentistry is spreading rapidly and Digital Smile Design company is leading the way with their use of Formlabs 3D printing. To continue industry adoption, education is critical and we’re thrilled to collaborate with Dr. Christian Coachman and DSD to develop robust digital workflow solutions and curricula that will bolster efficiency and patient treatment outcomes that 3D printing provides in dentistry,” said Guillaume Bailliard, President of the Healthcare division at Formlabs.
“With this new collaboration, we look forward to continuing to make printing technology commonplace in dental clinics and advancing the printing of more advanced appliances, based on new resins. All of this will help dentists to provide even better and more precise services for their patients,” said George Cabanas, Research and Development Manager at DSD. “The ease of use of the Form 3B/3B+ printers, the variety of resins, and the affordable system price make it a no-brainer for any dental lab to introduce multiple Formlabs printers into their production process.”
