I feel so lucky
"I feel so lucky to have been introduced to Mark and the team at ESM Digital. They have allowed me to develop our set up to the point where we can do anything with our scanning equipment, from full mouth rehabilitations to making our own orthodontic clear aligners."
Dr Neil Harris - BDS, DPDS, HRS Dental Care
Gloucestershire, UK
Superb Support
"I purchased my Trios scanner from ESM on the recommendation of another dentist and in spite of the fact that ESM is in Ireland and we are in England I am delighted with my decision. Mark Barry at ESM has and continues to provide superb support. With Mark's live remote coaching in my ears I managed to complete my first scans for the restoration of an implant in record time. The screw retained crown fitted beautifully, with good contacts and in occlusion with no adjustment required. I thoroughly recommend Mark and ESM. Thank you very much. Best wishes Bradley Abrahams."
Bradley Abrahams - Smilecraft Dental Care

Best decision we made
“I have to give a high recommendation to Mark and the ESM team. We moved to them a few years back, with previously not being happy with our support from another reseller. I was recommended to them and it has been the best decision we made. The support is instant and to the point. They are very knowledgeable on the 3shape scanner. I will be staying with them for a long time.”
Dr Paaras Dhanani - New Road Dental

From the word go he was excellent
“A good friend of mine recommended that I speak to Mark at ESM I am so glad I did. Right from the word go he was excellent. He took a lot time to explain the options to me with a couple of demonstrations over ZOOM He even arranged a demo scanner to be sent out to me and carried out some training”
Dr Prash Patel, Beech Lane Dental Care
Reading, UK
Staggered at the quality of training delivered by ESM
"We recently transferred our TRIOS licences to ESM and added some additional elements to our setup on the guidance of ESM. My associates and I were absolutely staggered at the quality of training delivered by ESM and wonder why we never received such training in the first place from our previous supplier! - I can’t recommend Mark and his team highly enough, knowledge second to none, customer service to match!"
Dr David Hilton - Principal
Churchfield Dental Centre, Barnsley
The whole process was seamless
“I initially bought a Trios 3 to begin my digital dentistry journey. ESM had been recommended by a friend, and after the initial enquiry, Mark visited with a Trios Move for a demo. The whole process was seamless, with finance organised at the same time. Mark came and gave the team training and stayed to help us with a few patients we had booked in for treatment too, leaving us prepared for getting to work with it. It’s no exaggeration to say it has totally revolutionised the way we work in both restorative and ortho treatment. After a little while of using the Trios , I decided to go all in and buy a Roland DWX42W mill from ESM for same day restorations, which again, has pushed the level of service we provide to a whole new level. The support we get from ESM has always been rapid and comprehensive , although to be honest, we were so well trained and the products are of such high quality and intuitive to use that we’ve not even had to call on them too often.”
