3DSystems Can Help Dental Patients... and They Can Also Help Dogs


We are rapidly approaching being able to print dental prosthetics on a regular basis.  It's already being done and it is going to continue to go more and more mainstream.  Just follow the link above and see what's going on in this exciting area of dentistry.

However, today's post is an amazing feel good story of Derby the dog.  He was born with deformed front legs and yet 3DSystems printed prosthetic limbs that let's him run almost like a normal pooch.

Watch the video and if you don't have a warm feeling when it's over, there is something wrong with you.  This is the future folks.  3D printing of dental crowns and other prosthetics is very cool and is going to change the industry, but being able to make a crippled dog run, well that's just incredible.
