Introducing EzScan and Vatech Hub
Considering the expansion of Vatech’s business, the composition of Smart Dentistry that considers the dental workflow continues, but each product must be differentiated. Specialized solutions that lead the way in the technology of X-ray diagnostic equipment should be secured to maintain the color of Vatech, said Sung-il Choi, Chief of R&D center.
Vatech, a global company specializing in dental imaging, announced that they participated in the International Dental Show (IDS) held in Cologne, Germany, from March 12th to the 16th. During this exhibition, not only did Vatech release diagnostic equipment technology that shows their strength as a leading company, but also introduced EzScan, a solution that improves digital workflow. They also introduced a dental platform called Vatech Hub, which improves communication between doctors and lab technicians. On top of this, Vatech showed the upgraded dental SW Ez3D-i V5.1 to dentists from around the world.
To discover what was most memorable about IDS 2019, we interviewed Mr. Choi, the Chief of the R&D Center.
Q: EzScan gained a lot of interest from IDS 2019 visitors. What is special about EzScan?
Choi: The purpose of an intraoral scanner is to take impressions of the patient’s mouth. I think the most important benefit of this product is the clinical effectiveness and if it can improve user convenience, that would be the second most important benefit. Dentists or their staff scan patient mouths frequently and it can take a long time. I saw many practitioners not using their intraoral scanner and they would just leave it in the corner of their office. With this in mind, our primary goals were user convenience, product size, weight, usability of continuous scanning, and so on. As a result, I think our product is the lightest in the market.
Q2. What are the other new products coming out this year?
The Intraoral scanner and the GreenX are expected to be released at the end of this year. There is another new product named Smart Clean which is a sterilization machine, which was developed based on the customers’ needs, that is also expected to be released this year.
By that time, I believe that we will have changed the environment to enhance our competitiveness, by providing improvements to our solutions.
