CS 3600 – profitable & efficient. Digital impression in the CADstar dental network

The CADstar dental network is a consortium of the practice, dental laboratory and CADstar in a validated communication and production channel.

Thus, CADstar is a system partner and takes over the installation and support of the devices and produces models and restorations for the laboratory. Our visionary partner concept brings dentists, dental laboratories and CADstar together. The partnership results in a win-win-win situation for the operator, laboratory and patient.
