“The collaboration with 3Shape supports our goal of tailoring our product solutions to the needs of our customers. We want to give dental professionals real added value with digital technologies that can be easily integrated and are an intelligent advancement in their routine workflows,” says Don Casey, chief executive officer of Dentsply Sirona. “Open systems allow the integration of new functions into existing practice and laboratory structures. We are convinced that we have an excellent partner for this with 3Shape and look forward to additional partnership opportunities in the future.”
For 3Shape, the new partnership means an additional service to its customers: “3Shape’s goals and solutions are based on an open ecosystem philosophy and on working together with other companies to provide better and more cost-effective solutions that will benefit clinicians and their patients”, says Jakob Just-Bomholt, chief executive officer of 3Shape. “We’re very excited that TRIOS users can now take advantage of the leading SureSmile Aligners treatment through a smoother workflow.”
According to a press release statement, the connection from 3Shape’s TRIOS scanner to SureSmile will be improved and streamlined to allow 3Shape customers smoother access to the fast-growing clear aligner system SureSmile.
