How Desktop Health is Growing 3D Printing in Dentistry Today
This presentation will explore the unique position of Desktop Health and how its innovation can positively impact the dental provider and the patients. Bob Piercy. With over 10 years of experience on the dealer side of the dental industry Bob Piercy decided to join the team at Desktop Health in 2021.“I see tremendous opportunity in the 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing space across all industries. The fact that I found an opportunity to work in this space in the dental industry was an opportunity I could not pass up.”
Having always taken an interest in helping dental providers increase business efficiencies while increasing patient care makes Desktop Health the perfect match. “Additive Manufacturing is much more versatile and cost effective than current manufacturing processes in dentistry. The next three to five year we will see the printing capabilities expand due to the development of new material science allowing for broader, final application manufacturing.
I believe Desktop Health has a unique position and opportunity to be the leader in this space as we develop high quality printers, but also the materials for these growing applications.”
