‘I’m hugely passionate about digital dentistry’ – Dr Robert Chaffe on why exoplan, exocad’s software for guided surgery, is a game changer.
Dr Robert Chaffe says he can’t imagine his work as an ortho-restorative, implant dentist without digital workflows. Based at a private practice in London, Dr Chaffe relies on exocad CAD/CAM tools like DentalCAD for outstanding restorations, Smile Creator for smile designs, and exoplan for guided surgery to deliver the most precise, clean and painless care possible.
He says exoplan 3.1 Rijeka, exocad’s implant planning and surgical guide design software, transforms his restorative design work and supports patient communication and case commitment.
Dr Chaffe details why he believes guided implant surgery is one of the most incredible advances in dentistry and how working with exoplan can help to result in a relaxed patient and a relaxed dentist – a great recipe for a successful outcome.
Fast and seamless
Dr Chaffe also sees exoplan 3.1 Rijeka as an integral support to strong collaboration and communication with the lab. He uses two exocad tools, webview and dentalshare, during the planning and production process.
With webview, the lab shows Dr Chaffe what they’re going to do and how they will build it. Then he can offer feedback and make changes before the lab starts production. He says then, as the case builds and the files get larger, he can switch to dentalshare. The communication stays fast and seamless.
Exoplan’s intuitive workflow guides dental labs, dentists, implant specialists and surgeons from implant planning to surgical guide design and manufacturing. In addition, exoplan users can take advantage of seamless integration with DentalCAD and ChairsideCAD for designing patient restorations.
In a final word, Dr Chaffe says this about exoplan: ‘It’s predictable and fantastic.’
