vhf is pleased to announce that Patterson Dental added the high-precision milling and grinding machine Z4 to their portfolio for Canadian customers. The German manufacturer and the prestigious dental supply company agreed on the distribution in June.
Both parties are delighted to announce the new sales partnership in order to meet the strong demand for seamless same-day dentistry options. The Z4 is a sophisticated milling and grinding machine that allows restorations to be fabricated from any block material within mere minutes. Users benefit from previously unattained quality standards, intuitive operation and validation with established scanners and design software.
The CEO of vhf Inc., Dr. Nicolas Rohde, about the new cooperation: “We are very excited to grow our partnership beyond the USA with Patterson Dental Canada Inc. / Patterson Dentaire Canada Inc. Now is the time for same-day dentistry and the Z4 is the ideal milling machine that is seamlessly integrated with 3Shape’s TRIOS and can be paired with any of Patterson’s intra-oral scanner offering.” Dr. Rohde adds: “We feel extremely confident to have chosen Patterson as a partner, since they have a very experienced and widespread technology team for same-day dentistry systems in Canada.
Robert A. Ménès, National Director Marketing, Equipment, Technology and Technical Services at Patterson Canada welcomes the expansion of their CAD/CAM portfolio: “The vhf Z4 really impressed us with its ultra-HD milling results and its speed. Moreover, having complete material freedom and even the ability to mill titanium abutments with the Z4 at a very competitive price point, we believe that the Z4 will open up new opportunities for offices and in-office labs.”
Earlier this year, vhf and Patterson Dental already announced their sales partnership for the U.S. market. The Made-In-Germany dental milling machines continuously enjoy great popularity from dental professionals in North America.
