The center will offer an advanced education course for new digital workflows and applications using the 3M True Definition scanner. Kois also announced a collaboration with Evidentiae Technologies' software, a Web-based application that uses accurate intraoral scan data based on Kois' risk assessment and treatment planning principles.
"The digital technologies to this point have been primarily used by dentists as a tool to automate existing dental procedures," stated John Kois, DMD, owner and founder of the Kois Center, in a release. "The exciting opportunity for us going forward is to utilize this new technology as an intelligent analytical system to predict, plan, and communicate treatment. To realize this vision, we needed an intraoral data capture system that was not only highly accurate, affordable, and easy to use, but we also needed a partner like 3M who shares our values and our vision for the future."
