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.
