Roland DGA and Straumann USA Team Up to Offer World-Class Restorative Solutions

As many of you know and have read here before, I am a *huge* fan of Roland DGA.  We have a one of their DWX-42W mills in the office and we are "turnin' and burnin'" with it.  As a guy that loves tech I can tell you that integrating our mill into our digital workflows has really been a boon to the office.  If you are considering the move to in-office milling, I highly suggest you check out the DGShape line of mills.  They are sturdy, they are workhorses, and they create *stunning* clinical results.  We just cemented a crown in my mouth recently that Super Assistant D-Rey designed, milled, and polished.  I've been in the world of in-office milling since the late 1990s and I am continually stunned by what our mill creates.

Now comes word that my friends at Roland DGA have begun working with Straumann.  This is a really exciting announcement.  When two incredibly successful companies combine forces, there are almost always amazing things happening just over the horizon.  This promises to be an exciting year in dentistry and 2024 isn't even here yet!  Here is the announcement from the companies:

Irvine, Calif., Nov. 20, 2023 – Roland DGA’s DGSHAPE Americas Dental Business Group and Straumann USA, two of the most recognized and respected names in dental, are partnering to combine their collective talents and expertise to accelerate the awareness and acceptance of high-quality restorative solutions in the dental market. This new collaboration creates an exciting opportunity to provide world-class, full-service restorative solutions featuring Straumann’s implant solutions and DGSHAPE’s DWX Dental Milling Solutions. The partnership also enables Straumann USA to distribute Roland DGA’s state-of-the-art DGSHAPE DWX mills throughout the US and Canada.

Based on shared values, goals, and desired outcomes, the new working relationship between these two high-profile companies is expected to significantly benefit both Roland DGA and Straumann USA, boosting revenue and fueling innovation for the respective businesses.

“The Roland DGA and Straumann alliance will enhance the workflow and quality of restorative and implant solutions for dental professionals,” said Roland DGA’s Dental Marketing Manager, Lisa Aguirre. “We will work together to satisfy the growing demand for technological innovation and improve the overall clinician/patient experience.”

"Roland DGA and Straumann are dedicated to technological innovation and share a level of commitment to acquiring and retaining human talent that’s unparalleled in the dental industry. Both businesses are also laser-focused on providing products that effectively address the needs and wants of labs and clinicians to better the oral health of patients worldwide.

The two companies are entering this partnership as new, cutting-edge digital advancements continue to transform the dental industry. According to a recent report, restorative dentistry is undergoing a revolution due to computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technologies. Digital impressions, design, and manufacturing of restorations such as crowns, bridges, and dentures are accurate and time-and-cost-effective because of intraoral scanners, 3D imaging, and CAD/CAM technologies. With greater accuracy, quicker turnaround times, and superior patient experience, this trend is predicted to continue expanding*.

“Our partnership combines the branding leverage and the reputations of both companies to expand market awareness, reach, and adoption for the advancement of the dental community,” added Aguirre. “This initiative will consist of a product-based and communications-based effort to grow digital dental workflows and processes.”
