Global 3D Printing Solutions Provider B9Creations Launches Customizable, End-to-End Solutions With Dental Expertise Built In, Addressing Workforce Challenges and More

Posted on Tuesday, October 31, 2023

After Deploying Thousands of Platforms in the Dental Industry as a Technology Partner, B9Creations Goes Direct and Seeks New Partners With Limited Market Release

B9Creations, a global provider of 3D printing solutions, announced its limited dental market release—introducing a new 3D printer, called the B9 Dent XL, with the larger-format B9 Dent Lab 3D printer slated for release in the near future, as well as an initial material offering with a diverse range of resins in development for future release. The company has built feedback from real dental technicians into the entire solution—from intuitive, dental-specific CAM software to high-performance materials for a wide range of indications, all the way through automated post-processing units.

After nearly a decade of experience serving the dental industry as a technology partner—where B9Creations has deployed patented technology in thousands of white-labeled, regulatory-compliant, turnkey 3D printing solutions with customized hardware and software—the company is now taking a direct approach and seeking customers and new partners to join the limited market release.

“Our journey has always been defined by our ability to create customized solutions that solve problems others won’t tackle. For the past 7+ years, B9Creations has served the dental industry as a technology partner. We’ve seen the needs and frustrations of customers who need robust, dependable equipment assembled in the USA and backed by a company that defines our success as the customer achieving their goals rather than simply closing a sale. B9Creations brought workflow innovations to the jewelry industry that eliminated complexity by going directly from design software to print and eliminating CAM, which enabled the first large-scale retail deployments of Additive Manufacturing. These same innovations can break down the barriers of complexity that create workforce headaches and hinder the profitability of AM chairside. In industries from aerospace to medical device, we’ve been at the forefront of volume production with AM in some of the most dimensionally-demanding applications,” said B9Creations CEO, Shon Anderson.

“We’ve recognized the struggle in getting dental technicians up to speed quickly, and when you add in turnover and labor shortages, going digital in dentistry can be a challenge. So, with one of our dental partners, we developed dental-specific CAM software with input from senior dental technicians, including their feedback in the language, functionality, and visual interface of the software—and then condensed the workflow to just three clicks, with intelligence built into the layout, orientation, and supporting functions based on indication. This meant they already knew the functionality, as it looked like a dental CAD program, and the software took care of the rest. Now, we’re seeking other opportunities for companies who want to offer that type of value internally and to their customers,” added Anderson. "For dental companies seeking to provide a differentiated offer and build value into your own products and services leveraging AM, B9Creations can create private-labeled offerings that integrate with your own software, hardware, and other products to provide your customers assurance of results that selling the same off-the-shelf printer as your competitors can’t deliver. Starting now, there’s a better option for Additive Manufacturing in dental."

Whether you’re aiming for same-day chairside solutions, enhancing patient engagement with visual aids, optimizing lab production, or preparing the next generation of dental experts, the B9 Dent Series streamlines workflows, reduces lead times, and enables you to produce customized solutions with speed and efficiency. B9Creations 3D printers deliver unbeatable ease of use, precision, and repeatable performance.

B9 Dent XL: Experience the future of precision dentistry with the B9 Dent XL 3D printer. Developed by dental experts to be part of a comprehensive, thoroughly tested workflow, this platform was designed to meet the diverse needs of dental professionals across clinical, small-scale lab, and education settings. Boasting effective resolution finer than 25 microns and a powerful 385 nm light engine, the B9 Dent XL enables you to 3D print intricate geometries in a wide range of specialty materials.

B9 Dent Lab Coming Soon: A larger 3D printer platform ideal for a wide range of dental lab applications.

RevenueWell to Offer Synchrony’s CareCredit to its Dental Practices/Patients

Posted on Tuesday, October 31, 2023

Partnership includes digital features for an improved patient experience

Integration delivers frictionless finance options and puts the financial journey in the hands of patients

RevenueWell, the leading provider of patient engagement and communication solutions for the dental market, is excited to announce significant enhancements to its RevenueWell Marketing Platform as part of a new partnership with Synchrony (NYSE:SYF), a leading consumer finance company, and its health and wellness financial solution, CareCredit. The latest updates empower dental practices to more effectively communicate CareCredit financing options to patients leveraging the full power of RevenueWell marketing campaigns, text messaging, and website templates. Additionally, new workflow enhancements dramatically simplify the process of confirming and communicating pre-approvals, payment status, and pre-existing CareCredit accounts, further improving the ability of practices to provide timely and accurate information about a patient’s payment and financing status.

Key Features of the CareCredit Enhancements

1. Personalized CareCredit URLs: By leveraging the latest CareCredit API, RevenueWell will take advantage of CareCredit personalized URLs (PURLs) for each patient, enabling CareCredit automation to pre-fill patient-specific information, and simplifying steps in the application process if someone has already been pre-approved or is an existing CareCredit card holder. Through this process, the time required to fill an application will be significantly shortened for many patients, increasing the number of patients using CareCredit as a financing option and therefore the percentage of patients who can accept their treatment plan.

2. Messenger Quick Links: Through enhancements to Messenger, practices will be able to quickly send PURLs from within their real-time text conversations, providing just-in-time decision support for patients navigating questions of payment and affordability.

3. Campaign Merge Field and Filter: With the new enhancements, PURLs can be easily added to any campaigns, and practices can target an audience with relevant treatment options and promotions. Through RevenueWell’s advanced campaign features, practices will now be able to include pre-approval as a targeting attribute alongside all other advanced targeting criteria such as treatment plan code. This enables practices to dramatically improve case acceptance by notifying patients with certain treatment plan codes that they are pre-approved for CareCredit financing.

4. Off-the-shelf Content for Websites: RevenueWell’s ADA-endorsed web design services will now offer pre-designed and SEO-optimized web pages describing CareCredit services, enabling practices to showcase their financing options via any RevenueWell designed website.

5. CareCredit Payment, Pre-approval, and Payment Verification: With these new enhancements, we’ve made it easier to complete CareCredit workflows when the patient is in the office. Clicking on the patient’s pre-approved amount (or current cardholder) allows the practice to quickly accept or decline the pre-approval or process a payment. Additionally, RevenueWell users can also easily check the status of a payment on behalf of a CareCredit user.

“We are thrilled to introduce these game-changing enhancements to RevenueWell Marketing Platform,” said Richard Juknavorian, Chief Product Officer of RevenueWell. “These upgrades take treatment financing to the next level, reducing the dependency on front desk workers to make awkward in-person pitches while enabling patients to take advantage of personalized, hassle-free financing options. We expect these improvements to drive significant improvements to both patient satisfaction and case acceptance rate.”

How It Works:

The new enhancements are included with most versions of RevenueWell Marketing Platform, including Professional and Premium editions, as well as any stand-alone implementations. Practices can link their CareCredit and RevenueWell accounts by following the link below to enter their CareCredit Merchant ID: plan

Key Business Benefits:

- Improved Efficiency: With these changes, front-desk staff will no longer need to explain CareCredit options – the whole process will be managed on the patient side with minimal involvement from front desk staff. Common inquiries about pre-approvals and payment status can be handled quickly and easily with the new user interface enhancements.

- Improved Case Acceptance: The main barrier to case acceptance is cost related to treatment. With these changes, patients will be much more aware of their financing options, providing more opportunities for them to accept the care they need, reducing treatment backlog and increasing realized revenue.

- Improved Patient Satisfaction: According to recent survey, patients are generally dissatisfied with their payment experience in healthcare – 40% said they weren’t satisfied with their billing experience, 36% said they would switch providers if billing was too complex, and 27% said they would consider switching providers if they weren’t offered a payment plan or third-party financing. With these new enhancements, RevenueWell Marketing Platform dramatically reduces these potential patient satisfaction risks by simplifying the process and empowering patients with more options and more control.


The CareCredit enhancements will be available in the RevenueWell Marketing Platform on October 31th for all customers.

DMG to Launch Ecosite Elements Universal Composite

Posted on Friday, October 27, 2023

The new exceptionally esthetic and efficient composite system with maximum shade combinations and unbeatable handling

DMG will formally unveil its new Ecosite Elements nanohybrid universal composite shade system at the Greater New York Dental Meeting, November 26-29, 2023. It will be available for dental professionals to purchase beginning November 1st, 2023. The company’s latest breakthrough can be used to master composite restorations, especially esthetically challenging cases.

Ecosite Elements is the result of countless discussions and workshops with leading clinicians, coupled with innovative research conducted by DMG scientists. The nanohybrid composite is intended for dental professionals to deliver esthetically exceptional restorations, quickly and efficiently.

Dr. Scott Chanin, one of the material system’s original evaluators, states “There’s a wide range of flexibility with this Ecosite Elements that allows you to obtain an ideal result easily. Everything you need in one system.”

The keys to Ecosite Elements’ unique capabilities are as follows:

• Amazingly compact to simplify your life

The Ecosite Elements line’s compact range of shades across three modules (Pure, Layer and Highlight) represents a much more manageable selection than some other competitors’ systems may require, which means significant reductions in storage and inventory expense. Packaged in ergonomically optimized dispensers the shades provide all the options needed for dentin or enamel replacement, layering, individualization and covering discolorations, with simple and accurate shade matching.

• NC1 (non-clustering) technology for perfect polishability and esthetics

Ecosite Elements’ state-of-the-art mechanical values are perfectly suited for the anterior and posterior regions. With the precise silanization of individual ultrafine filler elements enabling exceptionally homogeneous distribution, its NC1 technology delivers optimum working characteristics and polishability and esthetic results.

• Push-and-Flow restorative technique makes handling a dream

The NC1 technology makes the novel Push-and-Flow technique possible, enabling the material to adjust to each situation. The initially firm consistency quickly becomes noticeably softer during sculpting, allowing the material to be securely adapted to the cavity walls and eliminating bubbles or cracks. With perfectly accurate anatomical details, the finals restoration look lifelike.

“Even in anterior cases, the restoration looks incredibly real,” Dr. Alan Pressman said. “The base VITA shade matches the opacity or translucency of the tooth next to it, and then you can cover that with the next shade module. If you are trying to match a veneer on tooth No. 8 with tooth No. 9 and there is some imperfection on the enamel, you can't tell the difference.”

Ecosite Elements is the latest addition of innovative composite offerings from DMG, which include such industry-leading, award-winning materials as Luxatemp bis-acrylic provisional material and LuxaCore Z Dual core build-up and post cementation composite.

The new composite can also be used in concert with other advanced materials in the Ecosite family, including Ecosite Bulk Fill and Ecosite Bond.

Demonstrations and complimentary samples of Ecosite Elements will be available at the DMG booth #2822 during the Greater New York Dental Meeting on November 26-29, 2023, that will be held at the Jacob Javitz convention center in New York City.

Designing Natural Gingiva Through Characterization

Posted on Friday, October 27, 2023

The SSOP presents a new workshop in its portfolio.

Characterization is indispensable for a denture that aspires to look as natural as possible. In hectic times and with increasing digitization, the characterization of dentures has become a sought-after skill in the technical dental field. The SSOP supports laboratories in refreshing and deepening this knowledge and skill.

To this purpose, it is launching a new format in its continuing education portfolio with the one-day workshop "Esthetic Gingiva". The focus is placed on a hands-on demonstration and exercise on the topic of characterization. The individual color design of the denture is developed step by step. By analyzing the different gingival layers and their specific color system, a scheme can thus be transferred to the denture. The result is a denture which comes very close to a natural gingiva.

The focus of this SSOP event is also on individual learning success. The SSOP achieves this through its didactically designed program, its professionally trained teachers, and its in-house accompanying teaching materials. The products used in this workshop are of course, as usual, provided by CANDULOR. The SSOP also offers training courses in-house, so that entire laboratory teams can be trained at the same time. More information on the subject can be accessed on the SSOP website
