Roland DGA

Roland DGA has introduced its new “DGSHAPE by Roland” dental solutions brand, following its parent company’s decision to transfer 3D and dental product development to the newly established, wholly owned subsidiary, DGSHAPE Corporation. The move will create greater focus on its industry-leading dental business.

The formation of DGSHAPE will allow Roland to dedicate more time, energy and staff solely toward the development of innovative dental and 3D solutions, reflecting the company’s commitment to its customers within these markets.

Andrew Oransky, president of Roland DGA points out, “While the creation of ‘DGSHAPE by Roland’ does not change anything to how Roland DGA is structured or how we deliver our products to market, it will enable us to better deliver on our vision of empowering people to give shape to their ideas, while increasing the brand recognition for this segment of our business.”
