How do I add Pittman Dental Laboratory as a lab provider on my intraoral scanner? What intraoral scanner do you recommend?
From the images we are receiving from all the different scanners you cannot go wrong. Technology has progressed to the point that accuracy is no longer a concern when making your purchase. One recommendation we would make is pay close attention to the training that is being offered with the purchase of the scanner as well as the replacement warranty, this will certainly help you determine the right fit for your practice.
