ATLANTA, GA – June 15, 2015 – LED Medical Diagnostics Inc. (“LED Medical” or “the Company”) has announced an agreement that makes LED Medical subsidiary LED Dental the newest provider of 3Shape’s 3D intraoral digital impression and desktop scanners.
Under the terms of the agreement, LED Dental will become a distributor to the orthodontic market for the TRIOS line of products, including the new TRIOS 3 digital impressioning system introduced by 3Shape during the 2015 IDS Exhibition. Boasting a new, more compact hand-piece design, RealColor TM intraoral photography, and flexible hardware configurations, the TRIOS 3 can perform a variety of digital tasks for both general dental and orthodontic practices.
“Since building our digital imaging product portfolio over a year ago, we’ve had a great deal of success in the orthodontic space, which is where we plan to focus our efforts for the 3Shape TRIOS product line,” stated Lamar Roberts, president of LED Dental. “3Shape’s state-of-the-art digital impressioning technologies strengthen our product portfolio, allowing us to offer orthodontists the very best digital technology available to facilitate a patient’s diagnosis, treatment planning and subsequent treatment.”
Dr. Jeffrey Brooks, vice president of imaging for LED Dental, sees the myriad of benefits that come with introducing intraoral scanning technologies during the planning of orthodontic treatments. “Utilizing 3Shape’s advanced scanning technologies and related software opens up digital workflow for the orthodontist.” Dr. Brooks continued, “The capability to quickly acquire full color 3D scans of the patient’s dentition and related structures negates the need for putty impressions and gypsum models and opens up new opportunities for diagnosis, treatment simulation and patient understanding. 3Shape scans also integrate and index with the patients CBCT image data allowing practitioners to take much of the guesswork out of treatment planning.”
Dr. David Gane, CEO of LED Medical Diagnostics, concludes: “The addition of 3Shape products to our imaging portfolio, our first measured step into dental CAD/CAM, is a prime example of how we are executing to grow revenues by creating additional and diverse revenue streams, while leveraging our sales and marketing infrastructure.”
