reddot design award

A part of our digital workflow, the Straumann® CARES® Scan CS2 scanner is one of our most recent product innovations. Its outstanding design was created by the Schlagheck Design industrial design team and has now been acknowledged by the jury of the internationally renowned reddot design award. By means of its white, high-gloss housing, the product creates positive associations to tooth shape and enamel.
