3Shape Program
(Presented by Carl Horrocks)


3Shape Dental System is a solution that lets you focus on craftsmanship and creativity while the software does the rest. No matter the size of your lab, our dental CAD/CAM software will enable you to become more productive and provide profitable services such as dentures, crown and bridge, implants, surgical guides, splints and more. 3Shape Dental System offers labs the widest range of treatment workflows, the largest suite of digital tools and libraries, integrated and intuitive workflows, and the strongest ecosystem.

Carl Horrocks will discuss the new features and updates with 3shape software, hardware, and what’s new in the removable options. During this session, we will focus on the removable design workflow. The objective is to provide your dental lab with a better understanding what is needed to add digital products to your portfolio. We will go through a step-by-step of a live demo of the denture module. You will leave with knowledge and confidence to start adding digital to your analog removable department or expand your fixed lab with removables.
