3D Printer at Top of Dentists’ Office Wish Lists

Being the dental office with the latest technology has a long list of advantages when it comes to patient care. Dentists may find it difficult to prioritize with so many new pieces of tech on the market: lasers, x-ray imaging systems, CAD/CAM devices, intraoral cameras, etc. There is a clear winner among Canadian dentists, with 80% of our surveyed dentists* agreeing on the same tech: a 3D printer.

This shouldn’t be too surprising to most in the industry – 3D printers are the new toy in healthcare, offering new, innovative solutions to health problems that were previously deemed too difficult to solve. The next question is, do the possibilities the 3D printer presents outweigh the price?

Let us know: What tops your office wish list?


*Between February and March 2018, RKI, a third party independent research house, conducted a 10-minute online survey of active, practicing non-hospital affiliated dentists and dental specialists on behalf of Oral Health. Using Oral Health’s subscription list, a total of 398 dentists participated in the study (with 219 completing the survey to the end). Assuming a total of 20,000 dentists in Canada (and 398 total completes) the margin of error for the survey is +/- 4.86, 95% CI.
