Dr. Todd Ehrlich tells us about his experience with Dentsply Sirona’s Primescan intraoral scanner.

DPR: Tell us a bit about you and your practice?

Todd Ehrlich, DDS

Dr. Ehrlich: I am a general dentist in Austin, Texas. We have a focus on restorative dentistry which includes a lot of cosmetic dentistry and restoring implants. I only have 4 team members and like to keep things as small as possible because we all grow through our technology. We are lean, but not "mean!" Just nice people that are very efficient at restorative dentistry.

DPR: How did you learn about Primescan?

Dr. Ehrlich: I am a longtime CEREC user and have used every generation of camera. When the Primescan was launched, there was no question to move forward in technology!

DPR: What made you invest in Primescan for your practice?

Dr. Ehrlich: The speed of the data acquisition is insane. It is almost fool-proof. With intelligent algorithms, it can determine that things are not right, like when a cheek or a tongue gets in the way. It makes digital models very fast, and intuitively enough for new assistants to scan successfully.

DPR: What has your experience using Primescan been like, and how has it been most useful to your practice?

Dr. Ehrlich: Nothing short of amazing because it makes it easier to do clinical dentistry. Even in the deepest darkest interproximal areas! Controlling the tissue is so much easier with the high data rate and processing of the camera. I've always said, "If CEREC can see it, CEREC can mill to it!"

DPR: How has using Primescan benefited your practice and your patients?

Dr. Ehrlich: Without question: the power of one visit dentistry. My practice is based on this concept and I've yet to have one patient leave my practice so they can have a crown completed in two visits! My patients love the technology and always want to check it out. Tell me one other feature in a dental practice that entices a patient to video a procedure. They use their phones and video the milling unit, or take a snapshot of their digital models. CEREC rocks!
