Equipment, materials and support critical to foundry’s mission
Boston, MA, USA – CAP, provider of end-to-end solutions for dental laboratories, and Amann Girrbach (AG) announced that they have partnered with The Foundry Dental Centre in Bessemer, AL to deliver world-class dental care to patients in need.
“Our primary mission is to serve individuals who strive to be free from addiction, alcoholism and homelessness,” said Roger Dawson, manager of the Foundry’s in-house dental lab. The Foundry is also home to an implant education programme, where new and advanced techniques are practiced by dentists in a hands-on, mentored environment. “The programme provides clinicians and lab services, and companies like CAP and AG provide the equipment and support that help us achieve our mission and deliver dental care to those in need.”
“When we were approached by the Foundry’s in-house lab, we were particularly struck by their unique needs and how we could make a difference in the lives of their patients,” said Tom Hagen, partner at CAP. “During our initial visit in mid-2015, we were so inspired by their work and vision that we committed to help them in whatever way we could.” Through charitable commitments, the Foundry received a complete CAD/CAM system from AG and an intraoral scanner from CAP. “It is a rare opportunity to be able to support people in need and high-end education at the same time,” said Georg Eickhoff, president of AG, North America. “We are happy that both our equipment and our team can contribute to that.”
In addition, CAP and AG have pledged to provide ongoing support, training, education and materials to help the Foundry maximise their equipment performance and help them thrive.
