Innovation Center wrap-up

Highlights from the Innovation Centers included Dr. Bob Lowe discussing his experience with Heraeus Kulzer’s Venus restorative material, J. Morita’s Steven White talking about Twin Turbines: A Revolution in Handpiece Design, Dr. Gary Severance of D4D Technologies highlighting the company’s contribution to dental office CAD/CAM technology, and Dr. Bill Busch with Henry Schein Dentrix explaining the features of G3 practice management software with a dentist who had just purchased G3 on the DPRWorld show floor.

Dr. Lowe, also a panelist at the show, used case studies from his own office to demonstrate Venus—a unique microhybrid composite for restorations—in action. Venus Color Adaptive Matrix and 2Layer shade guide help ensure that optimal esthetics are no longer a matter of chance or trial and error, but can be produced easily, quickly and reliably.

White, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at J. Morita USA, explained how TwinPower turbines provide increased power and reduced torque ripple.

Dr. Severance, Vice President of Marketing and Clinical Affairs at D4D, took the audience through the system’s highlights, including intuitive DentaLogic software and SOS (Support on Sight) tech support.

Dr. Busch, meanwhile, explained how G3 “closes the loop for going paperless.”

In attendance for his presentation was Dr. Diana Racean, a Skokie, Ill. general practitioner who just purchased the latest Dentrix software.
