3D Printing in the Dental Office

A lot has changed in dentistry, in just the past couple years even. One area that is quickly evolving is laboratory work.

Traditionally, impressions are poured up in stone, making for a messy, contaminated, dusty lab area.

One area that is changing the fastest is the incorporation of 3D printers into the dental laboratory.

In this episode America’s Dental Expert explains how 3D printers are making dental offices more efficient. Shawn Van de Vyver, D.D.S. also discusses how 3D printing can improve the patient experience and lower the cost of dental care to the average patient.
