"It's our pleasure to bring the PrograMill One to market and be aligned with an innovative technology partner like 3Shape and distribution partner like Patterson Dental who is committed to service and support of digital technologies," said Don Bell, vice president marketing – Digital Technologies for Ivoclar Vivadent. "The clinician gains the benefits of innovative technologies, proven materials, service and simplicity all combined in one."

“We are excited to launch our joint Ivoclar Vivadent - 3Shape chairside solution with Patterson Dental in the US, bringing together the PrograMill One with the 3Shape TRIOS intraoral scanner and TRIOS Design Studio software,” said Garrett Ogden, general manager, 3Shape North America. “This solution creates an outstanding workflow experience for dental practices who wish to offer same-day and next-day dentistry to their patients.”

Additionally, Ivoclar Vivadent announced a distribution agreement with Henry Schein.

 

“As a company, Henry Schein is committed to open architecture and to bringing the broadest

and best range of digital technology to dental professionals. We aspire to be the resource our customers can rely on for expert advice and guidance in transforming their practice to digital,” said Jonathan Koch, senior vice president and CEO, Global Dental Group, Henry Schein. “We are pleased to add Ivoclar Vivadent’s PrograMill One to our line-up of digital dentistry solutions. Ivoclar Vivadent has a long history of producing quality products, such as the Ivoclar Vivadent IPS e.max CAD blocks, and we look forward to offering our customers all the innovative products from Ivoclar Vivadent.”

 

The PrograMill One is the compact, 5-axis milling machine designed to mill beautiful, esthetic IPS e.max CAD restorations. A wireless system, the PrograMill One is designed as a self-contained unit that allows the mill to be placed anywhere within a practice without any separate filtration or suction units. It can be controlled using the mill’s corresponding app on a tablet or smartphone. An LED light ring visually informs the user about the current processing status. An innovative rotary grinding process, 5XT, produces a shorter duration of the milling process and minimal tool wear. A camera integrated within the mill automatically records all data on material and tool use. This makes material and tool management more convenient and efficient.

 

“Ivoclar Vivadent and Henry Schein share a decades-long partnership that is dedicated to bringing high-quality products to dental professionals,” said Diego Gabathuler, CEO of Ivoclar Vivadent. “By making the PrograMill One Milling System available through Henry Schein, we are pleased to expand this relationship with a partner that has unparalleled global reach. We look forward to working together to accelerate the adoption of digital dentistry.”
