Blake also interviewed EnvisionTEC’s customer Matthew Shafer a clinician at Bay View Dental Laboratory, a family-owned business in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Shafer has used the EnvisionTEC Vida Hi-Res extensively in his work. In many ways, the EnvisionTEC Vida has relieved, if not eradicated, the issues and concerns previously experienced by lab techs and doctors especially when it came to accuracy.

“When we milled our wax patterns, we had doctors specifically requesting us to hand wax their margins,” Shafer says. “That’s not the case today. Marginal accuracy is no longer a concern.”

Dental labs are embracing and implementing this technology and the systems associated with it thanks to their broad selection of materials for an extensive range of dental applications. The Vida is being integrated into the digital workflow adding ease of use for CAD/CAM software users.
