Osteoid will focus solely on 3D dentistry solutions, including the Invivo 3D dental imaging solutions, Invivo Workspace could-based platform, and solutions for precision surgical guide fabrication.
Anatomage, a medical visualization company, announced that the company has spun out its 3D dental business a a wholly owned subsidiary called Osteoid. The move reportedly will allow each company to focus on expanded innovation in its core specialty.
Anatomage will focus on its medical and educational solutions, while Osteoid will focus solely on 3D dentistry solutions, including the Invivo 3D dental imaging solutions, Invivo Workspace could-based platform, and solutions for precision surgical guide fabrication.
According to a press release, with backing from Anatomage, its parent company, Osteoid plans to make significant investments in R&D and go-to-market initiatives for products related to visualizing unique anatomy for implant planning, orthodontic, Endodontics, and prosthodontic applications.
Calvin Hur, a 20-year veteran of the 3D design and printing industry, will lead Osteoid as its CEO, where he will oversee strategic direction and product roadmap. Anatomage founder and CEO Jack Choi will continue to serve Osteoid as an advisor.
“Our team is proud to have earned the trust of dental experts for delivering products that streamline the dental workflow,” said Choi. “As the separate dental-focused entity, Osteoid can remain on the leading edge of 3D visualization technology for the dental industry.”
“Osteoid is on a mission to deliver the future of modern dentistry, and I’m honored to lead such a customer-driven team,” said Hur, CEO. “We are more focused and committed than ever to helping accelerate the move to digital dentistry.”
Orthodontist James Mah, DDS, MSc, MRCD, DMSc, professor and director of Advanced Education Program in Orthodontics, UNLV School of Dental Medicine, speaking on the company spin out, said, “It is clear that 3-dimensional technologies such as imaging, visualization, modeling, printing, and cloud-based application software are the future of orthodontics. Within these areas are very specific high-level functions that allow the technology to be easy to use, streamlined and cost-effective to be implemented in orthodontic offices. The spin out of Osteoid from Anatomage will allow for the industry focus and dedication to best serve the end users. Under the leadership of CEO Calvin Hur, a seasoned veteran of 3D modeling, printing, and software development and his team, this will certainly be a win-win situation for clinicians, their staff, and ultimately their patients. I very much look forward to the promise of improved diagnosis, treatment planning and therapy.”
The new entity announced that it will soon roll out Invivo6 Plus for 3D Design, added features for Invivo Workspace, and added capabilities for precision surgical guide production.
