A Word From Novica Savic
In 2015, our Pala Digital Denture revolutionized the way laboratories process dentures, providing them and their dental practice customers with unprecedented precision in two to three visits versus six or more visits with conventional dentures. While the Pala Digital Denture System has helped laboratories grow their business, we know there is also a desire by many laboratory partners to control more of the processing and finishing.
My Digital Denture is our solution.
With My Digital Denture, we are giving laboratories more control than ever in choosing their level of involvement in delivering a digital denture. My Digital Denture is a private label opportunity that relieves dental laboratories of the challenging and time-consuming setup and design steps in the denture process while still allowing them the freedom to use their preferred workflow prior to setup by enabling them to scan models with bite rims without requiring special impression trays or changing the dentist’s workflow. This innovative system also gives laboratories the option of choosing either Heraeus Kulzer’s state-of-the-art Mondial®/Mondial i denture teeth or the company’s economy-priced Artic® Digital denture teeth.
To make it as convenient as possible for laboratories to enjoy the benefits of My Digital Denture, the Pala Digital Denture team will train partner laboratories on the use of various processing techniques—including injection, pouring, and press-pack—and the finishing of a digitally designed denture, enabling the laboratory to offer the exceptional fit and precision facilitated by digital dentures. We are providing these hands-on training sessions near our South Bend, Indiana, headquarters and in-lab sessions may also be arranged upon request.
Once the My Digital Denture program is in place, we estimate that laboratories will see an increase in productivity due to the fact that their more skilled technicians will be freed up from having to perform the setup and design steps. Laboratory bottom lines will grow as these technicians are able to devote more time to higher revenue cases, and the flexibility of treating My Digital Denture as a private label offering also means the laboratory can market the final denture in whatever way best meets their branding goals, increasing their footprint in the digital denture space.
I invite you to read on for even more information about this exciting new digital denture opportunity. We look forward to partnering with you as we revolutionize the denture process—again.
