Atlanta-based dentist Dr. Frank Roach has built his practice on the idea that patients can only receive the best care if dentists consistently update their technologies and procedures. To keep up, he and his team employ the MoonRay S 3D Printer to create models quickly in-office without having to ship out orders and wait for returns.

Over the years, Dr. Frank Roach of Atlanta has earned a reputation for offering some of the most sophisticated dental procedures around, using a range of state-of-the-art tools and machines. In this way, he is able to provide more effective care patient and guarantees long-lasting solutions.

“Upgrades in technology allow dentists to provide speedier care and improved resolutions so patients can go on living their lives without worry,” says Dr. Frank Roach of Atlanta. “Newer technologies also help us deliver more comfortable procedures that don’t require the lengthy waiting periods of the past. Trust me, these days people want what they want today as soon as possible.”

The offices of Dr. Frank Roach of Atlanta use a range of technologies to expedite care delivery, provide lower-impact solutions, and cut down on recovery time. For instance, patients requiring dental implants can now receive All-on-Four anchors, which are stronger than traditional implants and only require four implants (instead of the typical 8 or 12). In the past, when dentists needed to take impressions of patients’ teeth, they relied on chalky molds that patients would bite down on until set. Today, Dr. Frank Roach of Atlanta employs Cerec Omnicam to take quick 3D impressions and receive ultra-detailed digital models that don’t require any discomfort from patients.

Additionally, the offices of Dr. Frank Roach use Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy to speed up the patient recovery process after major surgeries or procedures. By drawing the patient’s own blood and placing it in a centrifuge, Dr. Frank Roach can pull out the vital growth factors and fibrin vital in the healing process. PRP is an amazing advancement in the bone graft/implant dentistry field and a procedure Dr. Frank Roach uses daily.

Today, he and his staff employ the MoonRay S 3D Printer to create models of patients’ teeth quickly and efficiently in their offices. Normally, dentists must send out an order and wait until models are developed and sent back to their offices before moving forward with a procedure. Having a 3D printer in-office cuts down delivery by weeks usually for a patient.

The MoonRay printer allows dental professionals like Dr. Frank Roach of Atlanta to create surgical guides, night guards, accurate dental models for vacuum forming, partials and more. It’s an all-in-one system that is as easy to setup as it is to print materials and maintain over time. The MoonRay requires less maintenance than similar 3D printers, as the durable resin tank lasts for printing with up to 50 L of resin before it needs to be changed.

“The MoonRay is extremely cost effective and easy to use,” says Dr. Frank Roach of Atlanta. “Dentists couldn’t ask for a more user-friendly or speedy way to create precise dental models and appliances in-office. This makes providing excellent dental care in less time simple and patients love that.”
