Practice Implementation

The third generation technology developed for The Heron IOS is extremely easy to use and intuitive in design. The key to producing highly accurate digital impressions is to simply follow the correct Scan Path when recording dentition. By simply scanning in the specified Occlusal, Buccal, Lingual pattern, users will quickly and easily capture accurate impressions every time. As with any new technology, there is a learning curve to become proficient, but with Heron IOS, you will be scanning like a pro in a very short period of time.

National Dental Innovations offers flexible training options depending on your needs.
