exocad, an Align Technology, Inc. company and a leading dental CAD/CAM software provider, has announced the availability of ChairsideCAD 3.0 Galway in the United States and Canada.
The next-generation CAD software for single-visit dentistry was showcased by exocad at the Greater New York Dental Meeting 2021 in New York City, held between 28 November and 1 December.
This new release will provide dentists with design tools for a vast range of indications along with a wide choice of integrated devices. The chairside workflow is highly automated, intuitive and optimised for practice use. Newer users of CAD/CAM can benefit from fast wizard-guided workflows, while expert users can select free design sequences that offer greater flexibility.
The software includes a step-by-step guide through the design process and a smooth integration with open intraoral scanners, production devices and implant systems.
ChairsideCAD 3.0 Galway also enables the in-house design of FDA-cleared custom abutments.
“This software was designed to help clinicians who are adopting a single-visit dentistry model,” said Larry Bodony, president, exocad America, Inc. “With ChairsideCAD 3.0 Galway, dentists can streamline their workflow – from the first restorative steps to the manufacture of the surgical components needed to complete a treatment plan.”
The new release offers improved automatic design proposals. Instant Anatomic Morphing enables efficient adjustments: the anatomy of teeth automatically adjusts in real-time for dynamic occlusion. Smile design with exocad’s advanced 2D/3D approach is now faster, thanks to AI-based detection of facial features. exocad’s cloud-based data transfer tool, dentalshare, simplifies the communication and collaboration between clinicians, dental technicians and production centers. ChairsideCAD 3.0 Galway seamlessly integrates with exocad’s leading lab and guided surgery software programs, DentalCAD and exoplan.
Users of the new ChairsideCAD 3.0 Galway canbenefit from an in-office system that integrates with their current workflows. Further highlights include:
- Highly automated pre-op workflow: dentists can easily recreate the existing tooth anatomy if they choose to maintain the exact same shape and function of the tooth

- Expanded options for seamless integrations of intraoral scanners, 3D printers and milling machines
- Bi-directional communication with exocad’s guided surgery solution exoplan*
