Visiting the dentist has never been so inspiring
With the same energy with which David Smitz, entrepreneur and dentist at Kiesz, participates in an Ironman, he is also fully committed to innovation. And the needs are high, the dentist shortage is increasing. How can we keep dental care accessible to everyone in the future? During an inspiring Masterclass, David took us to 'The dentist of the future'.
In collaboration with Spark and various external experts from other fields, a sketch of the future for dental care in 2030 was made in 2019. This forms the starting point for various innovative developments that contribute to improving the process and the customer journey of the customers. From the virtual dental assistant Laura, 3D scan and printing technology, a new training under the name Shapeshifters, to a new vision of the building in which the Kiesz practice in Oosterhout is located.
David shared with us afterwards: "Sharing knowledge is one of the great pillars of the dentist of the future. At Mastering the elements, we have been cross-pollinated with other innovations. A new foundation has been laid for our future care!"
