Carestream Dental, SLOWDENTISTRY® Partner to Increase Spread of Digital Dentistry, Change Patient Expectations Around Care

Katherine E. Pfaff

Carestream Dental does more than just manufacture and sell digital dental technology; it also invests in partnership and education to ensure its users get the most from their systems so they can provide superior care for patients. That’s why the company has partnered with SLOWDENTISTRY® to promote the use of digital dental technology and ensure it’s being used to its fullest potential. 

Through this partnership, Carestream Dental will be able to offer select membership opportunities to its users. The company will also share and promote SLOWDENTISTRY literature and guidance.

“It’s not enough to put this advanced digital technology out into the marketplace; there’s training, education and support that goes with it to ensure both the doctor and patient are benefiting.” Ed Shellard, D.M.D, chief dental officer, Carestream Dental, said. “SLOWDENTISTRY’s goals align with Carestream Dental’s new initiatives, like the Digital Dentistry Difference, that raise awareness about the benefits of digital technology and seek to provide a better experience for doctors and patients.”

SLOWDENTISTRY believes in safe, ethical and pain-free dentistry, making sure each patient’s exam is “a wonderful experience.” The organization has established fundamentals that form a modern digital dental practice, such as capturing pre-treatment CBCT scans and digital impressions and committing to being 100% paper free.

“I believe that every human deserves respect when they go to the dentist,” Miguel Stanley, D.D.S., founder of the SLOWDENTISTRY concept, said. “The founding cornerstones of SLOWDENTISTRY are easy to recognize by any patient around the globe seeking care. They are set into place and implemented by caring practitioners who wish to differentiate themselves from those dentists that are more focused on volume and profit over quality dental care. SLOWDENTISTRY is effectively the human bill of rights for a dental patient,” 

 Both Carestream Dental and SLOWDENTISTRY believe that the proliferation of digital technology will grow even more once patients understand how much it benefits their care and treatment. In fact, a global survey* conducted by Carestream Dental found two out of five patients who hadn’t been to the dentist in two or more years would be motivated to go back if they just had more education about how technology improves their care. That’s why concepts like the Digital Dentistry Difference and SLOWDENTISTRY are as much patient-focused as they are doctor-focused and seek to elevate patients’ expectations of care thanks to digital technology.  


SLOWDENTISTRY® aims to improve the standards of care in dental practices worldwide to ensure safety, well-being, comfort and understanding. We are building a network of member clinics and dental professionals, committed to taking the appropriate amount of time with their patients during appointments.
