Tekscan Dental Division Partnering with Digital Dentistry Society International

Global Dental Education Group Embraces T-Scan™ Technology, Champions Digital Dentistry

Tekscan, Inc., the manufacturer of T-Scan digital occlusal analysis system, is partnering with Digital Dentistry Society (DDS) International, as both share a common goal of promoting the highest degree of education and resources around digital technology applications in dentistry.

DDS aims to assist its members by providing continuing education opportunities to enhance their knowledge and ability in digital dentistry. DDS seeks to expand its reach globally to establish interdisciplinary technological cooperation with other organizations in both the public and private fields. Tekscan will be represented among other technology organizations to help support DDS' educational mission by collaborating with founders, members, and key opinion leaders to share digital occlusion information and protocols around dental applications.

Dr. Henriette Lerner, President of DDS based in Baden Baden, Germany, believes this partnership is an undeniable match. "Technologies makes the world a new place and dentistry a new discipline," she explains. "Digital control of occlusion and function is a unique and indispensable tool in the digital path of implant and teeth rehabilitation. The Digital Dentistry Society is proud to partner with avant-garde technologies such as T-Scan, and look forward to an exciting road of common development and studies."

Dr. Lerner is also the owner and director of her own clinic, HL Dentclinic. She is dedicated to the philosophy of combining international and interdisciplinary studies and applying the highest standards of dentistry through a symbiosis of art, science, and technology.

Jennifer Cullen, Business Development Manager for Tekscan Dental, is excited and supportive of the new venture between the organizations. "Tekscan is excited to be partnering with DDS. Digital occlusion and T-Scan technology are now a major part of the digital dentistry conversation where traditionally this was limited to CAD/CAM technologies. The Digital Dentistry Society's goal is to provide the highest level of digital dentistry education and research to its members, which aligns perfectly with Tekscan's goals. We are thrilled to be working with this elite society, its leaders and members."
