It's #Funfactfriday Here are a few Interesting facts about Teeth and Dentistry to help you nerd out and get through this Friday!

🚨The Truth About Intraoral Scanners is out! Guess what, it’s not JUST about the quality of the scan... We received a number of requests for a write-up about our IOS test, so our CEO Paolo Kalaw sat down and wrote an article up just for you guys!
He added more detail on his thinking behind the process. Our goal in sharing is to highlight some of the workflow and cost issues we are seeing as dentistry digitizes.

Check out some before and after’s that have boosted patient’s self-confidence, and reminds us why we do what we do! 😃 Happy Friday Dentists and Lab guys!
Remember when we told you that we were testing IOS scanners? You guys had a TON of really good thoughts and questions and we have an exciting update... The conclusion is finally here!
First: All the scanners in the picture are more than good enough, however, we did notice that some are better than others when it comes to a few key items:
Scan Consistency: Does the scan accurately translate from patient to the final lab produced restoration through multiple systems?
Freedom to choose: Is the company locking you into a system or does it allow you to choose when and who to send the files to without distortion?
Software Improvements: Is the software easy to learn and continually being improved as dentistry digitizes.
3-Year Cost of ownership - so you are not stuck with old technology in a rapidly digitizing dental ecosystem.
