Dear Readers,

In a rapidly evolving industry, staying ahead of the curve is essential. 

Therefore, as leaders in digital dentistry, we continue to pioneer industry transformations while steadfastly upholding our commitment to the environment and the well-being of our team.

A pivotal step in our sustainability journey has been integrating the PostProcess DEMI 430 resin removal solution into our operations, marking a significant milestone in our sustainability journey. 

This state-of-the-art technology eliminates the need for Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA), a commonly used but environmentally damaging substance in dental labs.

Our switch to the DEMI 430 system has transformed our operations, making them safer, more efficient, and environmentally friendly. 

The proprietary cleaning solution used in the DEMI system is non-toxic, non-irritant, and incredibly long-lasting, with a single batch expected to last up to 24 months; this means we've dramatically reduced our IPA usage, resulting in an estimated reduction of 450 litres over the same period!

For a deeper insight into this transformative shift, please see the case study, which details our transition from IPA-based cleaning to the DEMI 430 system.

DEMI solutions offer safer, faster, and more sustainable alternatives for photopolymer 3D printing, which typically relies on hazardous solvents like IPA for resin removal.

It's not a stretch to say this revolution in our operations has had far-reaching benefits. 

For our team, it means a safer, healthier work environment, free from the health risks associated with IPA. 

It also allows them to focus on tasks that require their expertise, such as ceramics and CAD work.

For our clients, it translates into consistent, high-quality results delivered efficiently. Our commitment to green dentistry reflects our dedication to the well-being of our team, clients and the planet, ensuring that our dental solutions are produced with minimal environmental impact.

Our sustainability efforts extend beyond our lab. We've pledged to contribute to the global mission of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, aligning ourselves with the Paris Agreement. 

We're also implementing various strategies to reduce our carbon footprint, such as a cycle-to-work scheme, building insulation, and switching to LED bulbs.

At Nexus Dental, we're proud to be at the forefront of the green dentistry movement. 

Our investment in the PostProcess DEMI 430 resin removal solution highlights our dedication to driving industry transformation and promoting eco-friendly practices. 

By choosing Nexus Dental Lab, our clients are opting for top-quality, efficient dental solutions and aligning themselves with a partner that prioritises environmental responsibility and employee safety. This is the Nexus Dental difference.

Our work demonstrates that it's possible to revolutionise an industry while positively impacting our planet. We invite other dental labs to join us on this exciting journey towards a greener future!

Best Wishes

Steve Campbell, CEO, Nexus Dental
