Pacific Dental Services’ Affiliated Dentists Lead Digital Dentistry with More Than 400,000 In-Office Single Unit Restorations

We are happy to share that Pacific Dental Services – affiliated dentists have reached a major milestone and have completed more than 400,000 CEREC Computer-Aided Design (CAD)/Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) single unit restorations in their offices, leading the way in digital dentistry.

Enabling dentists to produce single unit restorations in-office and reducing the need to send a dental impression to a laboratory for milling, the CEREC CAD/CAM system allows dentists to provide patients with restorations in a single appointment. With the use of the modern CAD/CAM dentistry, patients no longer have to schedule multiple trips to the dentist in order to have a restoration done and can enjoy the convenience of same-day dentistry.  Utilizing CEREC CAD/CAM technology is an example of what our  Private Practice + model was designed to do: allow dentists to focus solely on their patients.

Our president and founder Stephen Thorne said: “PDS-affiliated dentists have always been at the forefront of the migration to modern dentistry and with this unprecedented achievement of completing 400,000 in-office restorations, they are now leading the transition.” He added:  “The CAD/CAM dental technology allows clinicians to have the ability to produce restorations in a single visit, delivering on our affiliated dentists’ drive for clinical excellence and providing the highest level of patient care.”
