Avi Cohen, Head of Medical Solutions at Objet, explains: “3D Digital Dental will
provide a 3D print bureau service for dentists needing to print models for customers.
Dental labs who are digital with CAD/CAM but require models for end process and final
checking prior to shipping to their dentists will also derive benefit from this bureau.”

3D Digital Dental, based in Rosebank, Johannesburg, is the brainchild of Dr. Dharmesh
Mistry, a practicing orthodontist. The company will provide a model printing service to
dental technicians and dentists who need models for crowns and bridges. In addition, the
Objet 3D Printer will be used to create orthodontic appliances, retainers and removal

“By having the Objet 3D Printer in-house, we will not only reduce time by eliminating
the need to create plaster models, but will free up time to focus on more important tasks
involving treatment planning,” says Dr. Mistry. “In addition to traditional uses, we will
also be able to fabricate surgical stents and models in bio compatible material, which can
be used for training purposes in implant courses, amongst others. We are very excited
about this purchase and look forward to reaping the rewards in a very short space of time
- not only from a financial perspective but also from time saved, which increases
productivity and profitability.”

3D Digital Dental [http://www.objetdental.com ] customers are not limited to dentists
and orthodontists already practicing: “Dental and Medical schools will also benefit as
they can now create cost effective models for their educational courses,” Objet’s Head of
Medical Solutions, Avi Cohen, says, “not to mention the field of Craniofacial Surgery,
which will benefit from being able to create models in order to treatment plan, teach and
train students how to perform procedures or generate models from CT scans for surgical

“With this purchase of our first 3D Printer we aim to be a partner for the dental and
medical industries,” Dr. Mistry adds. “In addition we are well positioned to service
requirements into sub Saharan Africa as well. Our ultimate goal is to expand in the future
and purchase more machines to best serve the industry’s burgeoning requirements.”
