The US dental laboratory arm of Henry Schein, Inc., Zahn Dental, has announced a new distribution agreement with Terrats Medical, S.L. Terrats is the Spain-based manufacturer of the DESS® Dental Smart Solutions system which offers implant solutions for dental lab technicians.

The DESS system consists of a wide range of connections and platforms including analogs, screws, hybrid bases, solutions for angled screw channels, multi-unit abutments for screw-retained prosthetics, and digital workflow components designed to be compatible with leading implant brands. These options are designed to give lab techs the ability to produce the entire treatment from temporaries to screw or cement-retained prosthetics and help dental labs simplify their purchasing process and production workflow, and reduce inventory from a variety of implant manufacturers.

“Zahn is committed to providing innovative, integrated health care products and services that customers can rely on to help deliver high-quality patient care,” said Rita Acquafredda, president, Global Laboratory Business, Zahn Dental. “The DESS portfolio of prosthetic components can help laboratory technicians produce premium restorations with reliable and durable prosthetic materials, further amplifying Zahn’s ability to deliver end-to-end solutions, and helping our customers’ implant businesses thrive.”

All DESS components come with a lifetime warranty and DESS is offering to cover implant replacement in cases where the manufacturer does not honor its warranty.

“As DESS continues to innovate and ensure its current portfolio reflects the needs and demands of today’s industry, we are pleased to partner with Henry Schein’s laboratory business to help enhance the array of options its customers can access,” said Dr. Hans Berglund, Business Development, DESS Smart Solutions.
