A great chairside workflow is not always about same day work. For me, it's about integrating the technology I have to create a better patient experience. exocad ChairsideCAD uses an open approach to make all my scanners, mills, printers, and cameras work together. Patients love seeing everything work right in front of them, and the technology makes my work easier.

After studying dentistry and thanks to my background in laboratory work, it was clear to me I wanted to maintain a certain standard in my own dental practice. I initially learned about exocad from the CAD systems used by one of their hardware partners. Thanks to this smart software, we've achieved 30 - 40% business growth in next to no time, for example by replacing most of our direct fillings with high-quality inlays, onlays or crowns! In addition, cooperation with my lab was also improved, as we both use products based on the same software architecture. It is also extremely easy to learn how to use the new exocad ChairsideCAD software, even for new employees. Working with exocad is great fun and my team always has complete control over the final results. Our patients are wowed when they see the individual work steps in 3D. Word is spreading quickly about our method of treatment, meaning that we are gaining more and more patients. I look forward to trying out the new ChairsideCAD modules.

My introduction to exocad was when I opened a lab in 2015. Having been a big user of CAD/CAM in my clinic for 11 years before that I decided to use ChairsideCAD when it was released. The initial release was easy to use and truly intuitive. My team and I were able to produce fast results that were predictable and aesthetic with no stress. Furthermore, our patients love it!
Since the Matera version was released, the real power of exocad has been unleashed. From simple inlays to complex implant-retained bridges and custom abutments, it's difficult to imagine a day without using exocad now.
