Digital dental laboratory ukdentech hosted a launch event bringing 100 partners from the trade and profession together to celebrate the official opening of its new headquarters on 1 March. The new facility includes a permanent training set up, with courses planned for partner dentists and their practice teams.

The opening was performed by Lars Christian Lund, vice president of global marketing for 3shape, along with the Mayor of Havant Councillor Peter Wade and ukdentech chairman Dermot Joyce. Dermot commented, ‘This event marks the end of a three-year journey and is the result of lots of hard work from our ukdentech team, supported by our customers and partners.’

Tom Lee, sales and marketing director told Dentistry, ‘we have invested in our new site, and all the technology within it, in order to be in the best possible position to service the needs of our clients in this new digital age. Dentistry is such a fast-moving industry and we make it our business to stay at the forefront of all new developments so that we can offer the best service to our clients. We are committed to using all of the technology available to us today to enable our clients to achieve the most predictable treatment outcomes for their patients. Our new training suite is further evidence of our ongoing commitment to education and to ensure that our clients keep up-to-date with the latest advancements as well.’

Director Steve McDonagh commented, ‘Lots of other laboratories just focus on their product, what we want to do is focus on the customer service as well and create a good environment for our partners and our employees. Expansion of our training offering is a big part of that.’

The training facility hosted demonstrations of Zirkonzahn’s Facehunter virtual articulator and face scanner, as well as the new 3shape Trios Move intraoral scanner. ukdentech has invested in 50 of the Trios scanners in order to be able to offer a deal which makes this technology more accessible to its dentists.

Dentist Simon Belford, clinical director at Alington Dental, has recently taken delivery of a 3shape Trios Move intraoral scanner from ukdentech. At the event he commented, ‘The new Trios scanner is a major advancement in full-arch scans for implant cases. Also, the included smile design software is great for showing the potential end result to patients and thereby increases case acceptance.’
