Danish dentist, Dr. Nimmi Holstein, has become the first 3Shape TRIOS® intraoral scanner user to submit a patient scan as part of the Invisalign® case submission process.
3Shape announced earlier this year that TRIOS could be used for Invisalign case submissions upon completion of the final validation process with Align Technology, makers of the Invisalign system. Today, the validation process was completed.
As a result, Dr. Holstein, a long time Invisalign provider and the first doctor to take the TRIOS for Invisalign online training program, today became the first doctor to submit a TRIOS patient scan as part of the Invisalign case submission process.
“Having worked with the Invisalign system for a long time, it was important to me that I could continue working with Invisalign products, even after switching from PVS to a TRIOS intraoral scanner. 3Shape and Align Technology are leaders in their respective fields and it is terrific that the two have worked together to make this happen. There are many doctors out there that will be very glad to know the connection is up and running,” says Dr. Holstein.
To use their TRIOS scanner to send scans for Invisalign case submission, doctors need to first complete 3Shape’s mandatory online training program. The program is open to all Invisalign providers using TRIOS Standard, TRIOS Color and TRIOS 3 and TRIOS 3 Mono models. Upon completion of the short program, TRIOS users can send scans for Invisalign case submission free of charge.
Participants in the TRIOS for Invisalign training program are being on-boarded in groups based on when they register, on a first come, first served basis. Registered doctors can expect a personal invite to the training program within the next six weeks.
