“Over the last five years, evident has become the ultimate cloud-based tool for dental laboratories,” says Paolo. “We have acquired evident and are investing a significant amount of capital into the company. Our focus is on accelerating delivery of evident’s new technology innovations to help our customers expand and grow their businesses.”

“After being in the industry for over 20 years, we know times are tougher for labs right now. We are taking decades’ worth of experience in the acquisition, transition, and expansion of dental laboratories – including our learnings from operating Frontier Dental Laboratories – and providing these laboratories with the templates they need for business growth,” Paolo says.

“We are planning on sharing templates that we have developed to help operators save time and money and become more successful in their businesses. We are also soon offering group purchase discounts on shipping and supplies for dental laboratories. We look forward to announcing new developments soon,” Paolo shares.

Lastly, we are proud to announce the formation of the evident New Technology Advisory Board, which aims to continually develop ways to help laboratories improve their business. We would like to welcome to the board the following industry thought leaders, each renowned in the dental community: Bobby Williams CDT and Dell Dine CDT.
