MELVILLE, N.Y., Aug. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 100 dental professionals experienced a live, hands-on demonstration last week of the new E4D® NEVO™ Scanner and Design Center during a scheduled session at The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), generating additional momentum for this innovative digital technology.
As part of the Henry Schein Business of Dentistry Conference, dental professionals visited LVI to witness first-hand the capabilities of NEVO, created by E4D Technologies, LLC, and exclusively distributed by Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ:HSIC). The NEVO Scanner is the first to use E4D's patent-pending blue laser technology, which provides exceptional data capture, video-rate speed and ease of use. The new E4D NEVO Design Center is a powerful laptop computer that uses high-speed Thunderbolt™ technology* with the NEVO Scanner to provide more power and bandwidth than USB 3 connections, resulting in extremely fast processing and alignment of scans. Plug-and-play convenience gives offices of every size the flexibility to customize their E4D NEVO configuration, thereby enhancing the restorative workflow across the entire practice.
Of NEVO's many attributes, the practitioners who experienced the system emphasized its ease of use, speed and productivity.
"It is so easy to scan intraorally -- that's huge," said Alex Touchstone, DDS, of Touchstone Dentistry, based in Hattiesburg, MS. "And the portability is great. A laptop is much more easily placed wherever you want it. It becomes more like an intraoral x-ray sensor."NEVO also was praised for its ability to improve workflow and foster total team involvement. "NEVO is a dream come true," said Terence Yacovitch, DDS, of Yacovitch Dental in Montreal. "It's easy for everyone in the practice to use. Dental assistants can do more with NEVO, freeing up the doctor to do more production. It has intuitive design and workflow, promotes total team involvement, and brings efficiency to the next level." "NEVO really helps increase teamwork in the practice because it's so easy to use, allowing the entire practice to get involved," said Terri Britt, RDA, CDD, of Dallas. "It's very easy to train the dental team on NEVO, which is one of the many reasons I love it." "Scanning intraorally has always been a challenge with CAD CAM systems, but not with NEVO," said Sherri White RDA, CDD, CIS, also of Dallas. "You'll spend less time in the mouth, and because it's so versatile, you will get the whole dental team involved."
