The idea for PIC dental is born
Our CEO and founder, Spanish engineer Adrián Hernandez, got the spark for the idea because of a sudden fracture of his father's full arch prosthesis.
The realization that it was caused by analog techniques commonplace in implant dentistry at the time convinced Adrian to develop a better, digital way of working.
PIC system is released
Initially called just "PIC camera", the world’s first and most precise implants oral scanner became a reality. The recently founded company began to build a network of distributors and customers around the world.
The idea of a digital transformation was still a utopia-like concept for most of the dental industry at the time. Back in 2009, very few dental practices owned in-house digital solutions such as the intraoral scanners that are commonplace today.
One of the first commercial presentations of the company was its own stand at the Expodental trade fair, where some of the first customers decided to purchase a PIC system for their dental practice.
