3Shape, Copenhagen, Denmark, announced that the first patient scan using the 3Shape TRIOS® intraoral scanner as part of the Invisalign® case submission process was completed. The honor goes to Danish dentist, Dr Nimmi Holstein.

3Shape announced earlier this year that TRIOS could be used for Invisalign case submissions upon completion of the final validation process with Align Technology Inc, San Jose, Calif. The validation process was completed this week.

As a result, Holstein, a long time Invisalign provider and the first doctor to take the TRIOS for Invisalign online training program, became the first doctor to submit a TRIOS patient scan as part of the Invisalign case submission process.

To use their TRIOS scanner to send scans for Invisalign case submission, users need to first complete 3Shape’s mandatory online training program. The program is open to all Invisalign providers using TRIOS Standard, TRIOS Color, and TRIOS 3 and TRIOS 3 Mono models. Upon completion of the program, TRIOS users can send scans for Invisalign case submission free of charge.

Participants in the TRIOS for Invisalign training program are being on-boarded in groups based on when they register, on a first come, first served basis. Registered doctors can expect a personal invite to the training program within the next 6 weeks.
