The PIC dental team have added Quimper, a beautiful town in the Brittany region of France to their travel map! Dr. Julien Guiol and his team recently received their 3-day PIC pro training. Dr. Guiol is a doctor of medicine and a maxillofacial surgeon. He has expertise in not only general oral implantology but also advanced procedures such as zygomatic implants, pre-implantation, and orthognathic surgery.
"We were immediately interested because we realized that in the digital workflow that we used for capturing implant positions, with intraoral scanning, we had difficulties to achieve repeatable results. Now, with PIC dental, we have that reliability."
Dr. Guiol and his team focus on maxillofacial surgery and implantology in their clinic. With multiple surgical rooms, and a consistent schedule of routine procedures, Dr. Guiol and his team needed a way to scale up their full arch practice. Their clinical rooms are equipped with the latest technological dental tools but were unable to achieve predictable and repeatable results in multiple implant restorations. When looking for a solution, Dr. Guiol learned about PIC dental from another colleague, Dr. Thibaud Casas, who shared the reliability that the PIC pro workflow brought to his own dental practice.
"With the PIC system, taking an impression with efficiency allows us to get this information quickly to our lab team. Now we have a perfect and precise implants capture to make the prosthesis and have a bridge that will be perfectly passive."
Since Dr. Guiol and his team work alongside other clinics and laboratories, he noticed that the PIC pro workflow allowed for more efficient communication between parties. With higher reliability and more accurate results, there is less back and forth between the clinical and lab teams. This allows for work to be done faster and with less chair time for their patients. Dr. Guiol decided on getting the PIC system form factor, with a reduced footprint that allows the team to easily pack up the system when it's not in use or even travel with it for cases performed at other locations.
“[The PIC system] allows us to improve our workflow and work with our prostheses in a much more reliable way. It has quickly become an absolute necessity in terms of precision and passivity.”
Once you try the PIC system once, there’s no going back! From the first capture Dr. Guiol did with his new PIC system, he immediately noticed the precision and reliability he was already achieving. With precision up to 4 microns, it was clear that the PIC system was going to forever improve Dr. Guiol’s implant restorations from now on.
“Like all innovations in the practice, it's not just about the practitioner. It also concerns everyone in our practice; secretaries, assistants, nurses”
Dr. Guiol and his team received a 3-day PIC pro training provided directly on-site, where they learned the PIC system's clinical benefits to enrich their workflow, customized specifically for his team and clinic in Quimper, France.
The PIC pro training is focused on predictability and productivity, and it covers many other topics beyond how to use the PIC system. Dr. Guiol appreciated that the training involved his entire team and showed them how to best integrate the PIC pro workflow into the practice. The PIC pro workflow starts from when the patient comes in for the consultation all the way until when they walk out with their final prosthesis. The PIC dental team made sure that the training enriched their workflow, allowing the entire team to incorporate the benefits the day after the training!
