Your chance to join a successful company to create best-in-class 3D scanners!

3Shape’s solutions are disrupting multiple of the traditional dental workflows by replacing physical impressions of patient teeth with highly accurate, high-resolution 3D scans and workflows. This provides patients worldwide with an improved customer experience, while giving dentists a wider range of treatment options, increasing efficiency, and allowing our customers to treat more patients.
