3M Oral Care and Patterson Dental have signed a distribution agreement for 3M’s True Definition Scanner. The agreement brings Patterson’s customers the opportunity to explore digital dentistry via an open platform and a trusted partner.
With the 3M™ True Definition Scanner, oral care professionals are choosing a digital hub that gives them an unrestricted entry point into traditional crown and bridge work with any lab, advanced implant solutions, clear aligners, in-office milling and more.
“Distributors have enjoyed putting the True Definition Scanner in front of dentists, because they know we’re standing behind it,” said Jim Ingebrand, vice president, Oral Care Solutions Division of 3M. “They can be confident that 3M is committed to ensuring it’s a success for the practice.”
The True Definition Scanner features the smallest wand on the market which means scanning with this system is not only comfortable for clinician and patient alike, it also delivers precision clinicians can trust. With a low-price entry into digital impressioning at just $16,995, the mobile scanner fits the size, mobility, practice requirements and budget needs of practitioners. The True Definition Scanner’s open architecture allows connection to the most common digital dentistry file formats. This gives dental practices the flexibility to choose the best output option for each case – helping manage the workflow the way the clinician wants it.
“3M is a trusted brand and we’re excited to distribute the True Definition Scanner,” said Dave Misiak, president, Patterson Dental North America. “We have a long-standing relationship with 3M as strong Minnesota-based leaders in the dental industry and believe we now have the opportunity to serve 3M customers in new ways via our best-in-class service and support network.”
