I have been working with Lou Shuman and The Pride Institute creating a unique Technology Fair to showcase the leading technologies in a number of different dental categories. The first fair will be presented at the Greater New York Dental Meeting (GNYDM) coming November 29 to December 2. I will be highlighting the featured technologies throughout the next month. If you are attending the GNYDM be sure to come by the Fair.
General Category: Emerging
Despite a 25 year history the use of CAD/CAM has become more mainstream in the last few years, which is why we placed it in the Emerging group. The reasons it has become more accepted are the very significant improvements that Sirona has introduced along the way: CEREC 3D Software, MCXL milling unit, CEREC Connect, and, most recently CEREC AC powered by Bluecam. CEREC was chosen for this category because of the impact of its 3D restoration design software, digital impression taking capabilities, comprehensive array of milling material options, its well-established infrastructure of customer support, and, in general, its strong record of success over many years.
