S4S Dental – an award-winning lab paving the way in digital dentistry

S4S Dental explains how it has become an award-winning dental laboratory with a dedicated digital department.

An innovative laboratory, S4S Dental commits to implementing the latest digital systems and software into its daily workflows. It keeps ahead in the rapidly growing market.

This began with large investments in 3D printing software and machinery. All as more dentists began to introduce intraoral scanners into their practices.

Now, a few short years later, the Sheffield-based laboratory houses its own dedicated digital department. It includes a team of qualified dental technicians. As well as a newly refurbished print room for its 13 3D printers.

No charge for printed models

In support of dentists looking to make the digital leap, S4S doesn’t charge for model printing with cases submitted digitally.

All scans received are also archived on its cloud-based system should they ever need recalling for replacement appliances.

With digital scans now making up over 50% of all cases received by the laboratory, S4S is therefore proud to reduce its carbon footprint in relation to gypsum. And it is looking forward to seeing this percentage increase in the coming years.
