RICHARDSON, Texas, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- D4D Technologies, LLC, an award-winning developer of digital technologies for dentistry, and Henry Schein, Inc., have announced the all-new E4D® NEVO™ Scanner and Design Center, enhancing the ease-of-use in digital dental restorations for the benefit of the patient and the practitioner.
Available exclusively in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand from Henry Schein, the world's largest provider of healthcare products and services to office-based dental, medical, and animal health practitioners, the E4D NEVO Scanner and Design Center represents a new level of precision, proficiency, and productivity versus prior D4D systems.
The NEVO Scanner technology is based upon years of experience with powder-free image capture in the intraoral environment and is the first scanner to use E4D's patent-pending blue laser technology, which provides exceptional quality of data capture, video-rate speed and ease of use. The new E4D NEVO Design Center is a powerful laptop computer that uses high-speed Thunderbolt™ technology* with the NEVO Scanner to provide more energy and double the bandwidth of USB 3 connections, resulting in extremely fast processing and alignment of scans. Plug-and-play convenience gives offices of every size the flexibility to customize their E4D NEVO configuration, thereby enhancing the restorative workflow across the entire practice.
"The E4D NEVO Scanner and Design Center represents what we call the 'Natural EVOlution' of digital dentistry," said Mark Quadling, CEO of D4D Technologies. "We've combined the latest technologies to create an even easier-to-use restoration experience. With NEVO, we believe doctors have the potential to further improve the quality, fit and predictability of restorations, affording the patient a great outcome and strengthening the practitioner's clinical offering."
For example, the NEVO Scanner employs for the first time blue laser technology that features an improved ability to capture the fine details that allow for more precise and accurate prosthetics. The solid-state NEVO Scanner incorporates many other advances to ensure an exceptional intraoral scanning experience. These include fog-free scanning, ergonomic design for easy positioning, removable tips for infection control, active heat dissipation for full arch scanning, color-coded feedback to operator, and adjustable field of view.
The new system features a laptop-based E4D NEVO Design Center, which gives the practitioner increased flexibility and portability. Dentists can easily move the E4D NEVO Design Center from operatory to operatory, or even among multiple offices, all while wirelessly connected to the milling center for maximum productivity and patient service.
"Henry Schein is proud to be the exclusive partner of D4D in bringing this exciting new technology to market," said Tim Sullivan, President, Henry Schein North American Dental Group. "We believe in a patient-centric approach to clinical care, and the new E4D NEVO Scanner and Design Center greatly enhances the benefits of digital dentistry for the patient, which in turn will enhance the practice of our customers. We fully expect that the E4D NEVO system will drive increased demand for digital dentistry, for the new user as well as for those customers who upgrade their systems."
The E4D NEVO Scanner and Design Center will be featured at the E4D Business of Dentistry conference in Las Vegas, August 8-10, 2013 (http://www.businessofdentistry.com/e4d), and are expected to be available in September.
