MidAtlantic Orthodontics Introduces Orthodontics On Command
MidAtlantic Orthodontics has announced the introduction of its e-commerce platform that provides orthodontic practices a way to access the supplies and inventory information they need to run and grow their business. MAO now provides a user-friendly way to place, track and store purchase and ordering history.

When using, the time it takes to source, stock and account for any errors is greatly reduced, and the risk of lost ordering history because of staff or sales representation turnover is eliminated.

Using the new platform, practices can run "leaner," which is a business standard that correlates with higher profits. More time and higher profits mean greater capacity to treat and compete in today's marketplace.

Carestream Dental's CS 3600 Validated for Use with 3M Incognito Appliance System
Data sets captured by Carestream Dental's CS 3600 intraoral scanner have been validated by 3M and are approved for use with the 3M Incognito Appliance System.

The Incognito System offers fully customized lingual brackets, archwires and bonding trays.

The CS 3600 creates HD 3-D digital impressions while offering an easier acquisition method than using traditional PVS impressions. The scanner's high-speed continuous scanning makes capturing dual arches faster and easier. Plus, ergonomically designed, rounded autoclavable and reusable tips lead to a more comfortable and hygienic scanning experience for patients. Once the impressions are acquired, CS Model software can then be used to create digital models in HD 3-D.

Carestream Dental's other intraoral scanner, the CS 3500, is also validated for use with the Incognito System. Both the CS 3600 and CS 3500 were developed using current standards for examinations of the American Board of Orthodontics.
