Carestream partners with Exocad on systems integration

Carestream Dental has partnered with CAD/CAM software provider Exocad to offer systems integration with Carestream's CS Solutions product portfolio. The new partnership will allow clinicians to incorporate digital impressions into their workflow and send cases directly to labs.

Exocad design software is compatible with Carestream's CS 3500 intraoral scanner, and clinicians and labs can now collaborate more rapidly using Exocad's dentalshare cloud service. New workflows, such as lab-assisted chairside CAD/CAM, can now be created by any laboratory or clinician, according to the companies. The ability to transfer large and complex cases allows labs and clinicians to build their business by increasing productivity and strengthening personal relationships, they noted.

"We immediately found development synergy with Carestream Dental's CS 3500 intraoral scanner and our new dentalshare real-time lab collaboration," stated Larry Bodony, president of Exocad America, in a press release. "The ability for our technologies to combine is extremely beneficial to a clinician's workflow and we are excited to work with Carestream Dental in this partnership moving forward."
