Make CAD the Workhorse of Your Dental Clinic

From precise treatment planning to streamlined workflows, Computer Aided Design (CAD) enhances accuracy, efficiency, and patient outcomes.

Gain complete control over the design process, enabling precise customization of dental restorations and treatments tailored to each patient's unique needs.

Accelerate Your Dentistry with CAD Software

Dental CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software is an essential tool in modern dentistry, enabling the precise design and creation of dental restorations.

Dentists gain complete control over the design process, enabling precise customization of restorations and treatments tailored to each patient's unique needs.

Technicians can leverage advanced digital tools to craft intricate restorations with unparalleled accuracy, eliminating mistakes and boosting overall efficiency.

And Dental Assistants can effortlessly communicate proposed treatments to patients using visual aids, increasing case acceptance rates.

Benefits of Digital Design (CAD)

Boost Case Acceptance

Create detailed 3D renderings and simulations, allowing you to visually demonstrate proposed treatments to patients, increasing case acceptance rates as patients gain confidence in their treatment plans.

Save On Costs

Reduce material waste by minimizing the need for physical mock-ups or multiple iterations. This digital approach is significantly more sustainable while saving you both time and money.

Increase Confidence

Many dental software's asses your work and provide real-time feedback. This trusted second opinion greatly increases confidence in your work and ensures high quality outcomes.

Complete The Puzzle

Dental CAD Software is the connection between all other equipment in your digital ecosystem. It allows you to effectively communicate between each piece of equipment and ensure a complete digital workflow.

Maximum Efficiency

Dental software allows you minimize downtime and maximise your time on important tasks. Your team can then focus on delivering high-quality outcomes, enhancing overall efficiency.

AI Assisted

Most modern software's use AI integrations to help increase the speed of treatment planning, bring even more efficiency to your workflows and produce high quality outcomes, faster.
