To: Andrew Kohl regarding Management Software

Dear Andrew,

Like you, we are looking into a new management software program.  Right now, we use the Dolphin Imaging System integrated with the Dolphin Letter System.  We are pleased with the capabilities of the Dolphin System as well as the high level of service and responsiveness of the Dolphin Company staff.  Our next step is to integrate the entire Dolphin imaging system with their relatively new management system.  Considering their track record and number of Orthodontist clients, I can't think  of a better company to consider.  The only criticism that I have ever heard about Dolphin has been that they are more expensive than some of their competitors. To that I say, "Buy the Best, Cry Once".

Dear All,

I don't know about Las Vegas, but this closing loop has a surprising resemblance to the Gjessing canine retraction spring published almost 20 years ago.  http://medind.nic.in/maa/t03/i4/maat03i4p337.pdf

To: "The Electronic Study Club for Orthodontics" <ESCO@LISTSERV.UIC.EDU>

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a 3D scanner to digitize their models . The machine is affordable and solves the archiving problems of orthodontic models. It has also the advantage of letting you work with your plaster casts if you desire so. User friendly software is also available to measure, compare before and after treatment. In the future, we plan to produce a simulated treatment option. Right now, the machine is only a prototype. I am just wondering if interest exists for "commercial" use.
