Great minds think alike – in this instance for the benefit of dentists and dental patients everywhere.

At Benco Dental, the OneVisit concept for CAD/CAM same-day dentistry launched in 2014 as the first open in-office restoration production system with a focus on customer choice. At exocad GmbH, ChairsideCAD launched earlier this year as the first complete open architecture CAD/CAM software platform.

The result of this collaboration: OneVisit Chairside powered by exocad, an open-architecture CAD/CAM software platform for single-visit dentistry. The Chairside workflow is streamlined, easy to learn, and optimized for usage in the dental practice, including a step-by-step guide through the design process.

In just a few steps, OneVisit Chairside creates highly esthetic proposals with minimal post processing. Experience matters, and the exocad platform is based on the same proven technology as its lab software, which is renowned for its reliability and robust features.

“What makes ChairsideCAD unique is the integration with open-architecture scanners, milling machines, and  printers,” said  Maik  Gerth,  CTO  of  exocad.  “Our approach  guards  against  future  obsolescence  by  assuring  access  to  the  latest,  most  innovative  equipment  from  multiple  vendors  in  the  open  market.  If you want to make changes to your workflow, equipment, or services, exocad adapts to your practice. The common thread is exocad’s open-architecture platform that enables you to integrate hardware and materials, without limiting your choices to a single-vendor model.”

Benco Dental will introduce OneVisit Chairside powered by exocad at the Greater New York Dental Meeting, November 23 – 28, booth 1617. For more information, visit or call 1.800.GO.BENCO.
