Henry Schein Connect Dental hosts information night at Roland DG

Henry Schein's digital dentistry division, Connect Dental, recently hosted an information night for dental technicians interested in CAD/CAM technology at Roland DG's Creative Centre in the Sydney suburb of Frenchs Forest.

The event coincided with the launch of Roland's new wet and dry milling machines, the DWX-4W and DWX-51D. The robust, compact and cost-effectively priced mills allow any-sized dental laboratory to manufacture restorations and prosthetics digitally in a range of materials.

"These two new milling units demonstrate a mature approach to the needs of today's digital dental laboratory," said Connect Dental's Reneé Lampreia. "Dental technicians experienced in CAD/CAM will appreciate that two mills - one for wet milling glass ceramics and one for dry milling zirconia - is of greater benefit than a hybrid mill trying to swap between wet and dry depending on the indication.

"The kicker is that the combined cost of the two mills is on par or less than many single mills that will do both. Two mills means greater capacity and redundancy.

"Of course, it's not necessary to purchase both mills; the nature of Roland milling technology is that it is modular. As you need more capacity, you can simply buy an addition mill, be it wet or dry.

"This enables laboratories to equip based on current need and avoid paying for capacity that may never be used, or not required for some time."
