Biolase has entered into a five-year agreement to distribute 3Shape's TRIOS digital intra-oral scanning system.
Under the agreement, Biolase will distribute TRIOS system to dentists, dental specialists and dental schools in the US and Canada.
TRIOS digital solution includes a hand-held scanner, operator’s control cart and intuitive software which helps in providing faster impression, improved accuracy and clinical results.
3Shape operations VP Henrik Vestermark said, "Our agreement with BIOLASE provides us significant new access to the important North American market."
Biolase chairman and CEO Federico Pignatelli said the agreement with 3Shape allows the company to better serve not only the periodontists, orthodontists, endodontists and oral surgeons doing complex dentistry, but also opens a new market to partner with the dental labs.
"By putting the TRIOS digital solution together with our advanced laser products and our full line of digital imaging products under our BIOLASE umbrella, we can offer dental professionals a ‘one-stop shop’ for a totally integrated group of devices and dental engineering services while, at the same time, driving new revenue growth in all aspects of the dental market," Pignatelli added.
