D4D Announces ‘Design on Site’ Service

D4D Technologies Announces ‘Design on Site’ Service

18-Feb-2012

Dallas, TX – (September 7, 2010) – D4D Technologies, manufacturer of the E4D Dentist system, announced today that it will now offer Design on Site services to its E4D users. Design on Site remote design service was created to enhance the clinician’s productivity in the office, giving them the freedom to treat other patients by providing the expertise of a CAD CAM Dental Designer on their cart for complete design at a nominal fee ($35/unit).

While unlimited Support on Sight™ (SOS) is included in the E4D user’s Total Care Warranty, there are some times when a little extra help is needed, or they simply don’t have the time to design themselves. Once the preparation is scanned (with no low scan data areas) and margins have been marked, the operator can turn it over to Design on Site for the design. 

Users can submit a credit authorization for each case or unit designed, or have it kept on file for future services as well. Design on Site requires a minimum 24-hour turnaround time for completion (this will vary depending on the case and situation).  An additional fee of $25/unit will apply to rush or immediate design services. 

Depending on the complexity and timeliness of the case, it will either be downloaded from the operator’s cart to our servers then uploaded, or if time and access permits, we will design right on their cart. The final design will be confirmed with the clinician/assistant prior to sending it to the mill. D4D Technologies’ Design on Site™ is not responsible for milling the restoration or completion of the restoration following design services.

D4D Launches New Adaptive Learning…

NEWS

D4D Technologies Launches New Adaptive Learning…

24-Jul-2012

Richardson, Texas, July 13, 2012 –D4D Technologies, manufacturer of the E4D Dentist™ system, announced today the introduction of E4D Compare™ an innovative adaptive learning technology tool for dental teaching institutions.

E4D Compare provides students with self-evaluation tools for precise measurement and feedback about the student’s sample preparations and restorations and how they compare to the institution’s standards. As students’ progress, they develop digital portfolios that demonstrate their accomplishments in tooth preparation, restoration design and occlusal articulation. From the faculty perspective, E4D Compare provides evidence-based assessment tools that also document student progression .

“The development of E4D Compare and its utilization in teaching institutions provide both students and faculty an innovative method of self-paced learning and a more consistent and objective evaluation of all parameters. This is another example of our commitment at D4D to making dentistry better at every level” said Dr. Gary Severance of D4D Technologies.

“There is a crisis in dental education; many students believe that grading is subjective and inconsistent,” said Dr. Walter Renne, course director for CAD/CAM technologies and ceramics at the Medical University of South Carolina, College of Dental Medicine. “The E4D Compare software program enables students to learn by challenging themselves against the “master” templates. E4D Compare has proven to be revolutionary in my classes. The students that have used this program have seen fast results and have been engaged from the beginning. The E4D Compare software provides new possibilities for enhancing the learning experience within the dental curriculum.”

E4D Compare is available through Henry Schein Dental, and is compatible with E4D Dentist and E4D Labworks systems as well as PCs meeting certain processing and graphics requirements. For more information, go to www.E4D.com/compare
