Digital Study Models

A convenient way to store your records and data, NorthStar’s Digital Division can assist you with preparation of your Digital Study Models.

The advancement in Digital Study Models will expedite and elevate your practice’s systems and processes. By integrating your Patient Management Software with your Digital Study Models you will enjoy quick and easy access to the files you need, when you need them.

If a physical Study Model is still desired, Study Models can now be printed in durable resin - with or without bases. Perhaps best of all, improvements in resin technology mean no more broken, chipped, or toothless models delivered to your office door. Each constructed resin model will be fully intact and ready for your immediate use.
