Carestream Dental Donates CBCT System to UAB

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015


The faculty and staff at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Dentistry are dedicated to providing first-class education and cutting-edge resources to the next generation of students. That’s why Carestream Dental is pleased to support the School’s goals with the donation of a CS 9300C system in honor of well-known orthodontist David Sarver, D.M.D., M.S.

The donation comes as part of a lifetime achievement award given to Sarver in recognition of almost 20 years consulting for Carestream Dental. During that time, he played an important role in designing and developing CS Orthodontic Imaging software. Sarver is also the designer of the Sarver Analysis Module for CS Orthodontic Imaging and CS OrthoTrac practice management software. In honor of his dedication to advancing the specialty of orthodontics, Carestream Dental donated the CS 9300C to the university of his choosing.

CS-9300C-on-WhiteThe CS 9300C is a four-in-one system that features panoramic, CBCT and the cephalometric imaging that is so vital to orthodontics, as well as the ability to scan PVS impressions and stone models. Students can familiarize themselves with seven selectable fields of view, from single/dual jaw to maxillofacial options. They can also practice the ALARA (As Low as Reasonably Achievable) principle with Low Dose and Fast Scan modes, which are particularly beneficial to the young patients the students will one day be treating.

“Carestream Dental and Dr. David Sarver are synonymous in digital dentistry innovations,” Chung How Kau, Ph.D., chairman of the UAB School of Dentistry Department of Orthodontics, said. “This gift in his honor not only will benefit the UAB Dentistry Department of Orthodontics but all of our residency programs and our D.M.D. students.”

Sarver compares the value of CBCT to that of keeping an eyeglass prescription up-to-date. Much like how putting on a new pair of glasses brings things that were once blurry into sharp focus, a CBCT scan provides “greater acuity to diagnostic vision.”

“Trying to visualize the location of impacted teeth or whether pathology is present has suddenly come into focus, as though—prior to this technology—I needed glasses but didn’t know it,” Sarver said.

Sarver received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from UAB School of Dentistry and Master of Science in Orthodontics from the University of North Carolina. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics; a member of the Edwards H. Angle Society of Orthodontists; a Fellow of both the International and American Colleges of Dentists; and a Fellow in the American Association of Esthetic Dentists. Sarver also co-authored the fourth and fifth editions of “Contemporary Orthodontics,” the most widely used orthodontic text in the world. He currently practices in Vestavia Hills, Ala., outside of Birmingham.
