Following their recent success in Corporate Vision’s 2019 Corporate Excellence Awards where they were recognized as 2019’s Most Innovative Digital Manufacturing Solutions Provider – USA, we profiled the firmand caught up with Christie Braykovichwho provided us with a detailed glimpse in the innerworkings of the outstanding company. Since their inception, Axsys Dental Solutions have helped countless dentists transition into the world of digital dentistry. For the past 40 years, long before anyone heard of CAD/ CAM, the team at Axsys Dental Solutions have been involved in virtually all aspects of computer aided manufacturing (CAM) for a variety of industries. Whether it is individual products or a complete digital dental manufacturing system, clients can be assured that Axsys Dental Solutions’ portfolio of class-leading, open-solution products offer the highest quality, functionality and flexibility. Today, their products include a full-line of CAD/CAM/Scanning software, 3D Scanners, Milling Machines, 3D Printers, Tooling, Furnaces, Hard & Soft Materials and FDA- cleared Implant Components. Aside from training and the impressive list of products, Axsys Dental Solutions also support their clients with highly skilled and experienced application engineers to address any questions, problems or difficult cases which may appear during day-to-day operations. The team at Axsys Dental Solutions provide customized digital dental solutions for the dental practices, laboratories and milling centers across North and South America. Going into Aug19120 further detail, Christie begins by informing us more about how business are noticing how effective Axsys Dental Solutions’ technology is, and how the team demonstrate to clients how easy it is implement digital dentistry into their practice. “Dental practices are quickly learning that our technology makes it very practical and very cost effective to implement digital dentistry in their practices. In addition to this, we excel at showing dentists how to implement digital dentistry in their practice at - whatever level meets their needs and comfort level. Dentists can provide patients with the full-spectrum of dental restorations, from the thinnest ceramic veneers to a complete oral rehabilitation, and everything in between.” Supporting the firm in their mission to provide an impeccable service, is the experienced, hard-working and committed team which forms the backbone of Axsys Dental Solutions. When discussing the internal culture, Christies is keen to highlight the significant role the team plays in the overall success of the firm. “Quite simply, our people are the best in the business and understand manufacturing at every level–from machining plane and car parts to dental crowns. The team has a proven track record of helping literally thousands of clients big and small, from virtually every industry on the planet, successfully implement high- technology products into their organization. All of Axsys Dental Solutions’ products and systems, as well as their training and support programs, are carefully crafted from over 40 years of experience.” As for the wider industry, individual dental practices are on the decline and group practices are on the rise, which they have been for the last few years. This trend is expected to continue due to the associated cost- sharing. Bringing the interview to a close, Christie reflects on these challenges which face the industry currently, as well as ones which may occur in the years to come. “One of the biggest drivers of the growth of group practices, is the high cost of attending dental school. In 2014, the average dental student graduated with between $150,000 and $200,000 of debt. Today that number is over $270,000. That’s a lot of money, and dental graduates feel the pressure of repaying their loans. The price of school is only going up and doesn’t seem to be equalling off any time soon. “As a result, this means there are fewer opportunities for us to market our solutions as these doctors either cannot afford to purchase or cannot qualify for loans or leases to purchase these high-technology solution - solutions that are necessary to meet the quality, delivery, and cost models required of their patients and payment providers.” Looking ahead to what the future holds for the firm, the team at Axsys Dental Solutions will continue to deliver an impeccable service to their clients, one which ensures that they not only meet their requirements but also surpass their expectations, despite any industry challenges. Currently, the Axsys Dental Solutions have a number of plans and partnerships in development, however they are all confidential at this moment in time.
