DGSHAPE YouTube channel to help dental professionals discover digital

DGSHAPE UK has launched a new YouTube channel providing training and support content for users of its digital dental technology. DGSHAPE, a Roland company, is a pioneer in the development of CAD/CAM digital devices and software for the design and production of dental prosthetics. Dental labs, dentists and technicians around the world are adopting this technology to take control of prosthetic manufacturing and accelerate the process to benefit their patients

The new YouTube channel explores this exciting field and DGSHAPE's solutions via short and accessible videos. Each one is designed to support existing users while providing those not yet on the digital path the opportunity to discover how the technology works.

Video content includes introductions to DGSHAPE's systems, such as the DWX-52DCi dry dental milling machine and the DWX 52D 5-axis dental milling machine, and practical how-tos on applications and maintenance. For instance, there is a beginner's guide to basic crown and bridge production using Millbox software, a step-by-step guide to replacing the collet on a DWX 4 mill, and a bitesized overview on milling permanent crown restorations with the 52DCI.

The channel also gives an insight into DGSHAPE and its customers. Viewers can meet real-life dentists including New York's Alan Jurim and Seoul-based Jaemin Lee, who explain how a digital workflow has helped their practices to reduce time and costs while improving quality and patient satisfaction.

In addition, there's a look at how some solutions can be used for non-dental applications – such as engraving a personalised wooden cheeseboard with a Roland DE-3 desktop engraver.

"The new DGSHAPE YouTube channel is a really accessible way to discover how digital milling solutions can fit into prosthetics production workflows," says Patrick Thorn, premier consultant for Roland 3D Technologies, Roland DG (UK). "Our collection of videos also serves as a valuable educational resource for practices who already use DGSHAPE solutions and want to get the most out of their equipment."
