July 20th, 2018: Time for some more great news – we are happy to announce that MABB Biomaterials manufacturer, based in Buenos Aires, Argentina has decided to begin accepting Dentacoin as a means of payment.

 

About MABB

MABB works with Nanotechnology, Bioengineering and Biomaterials to develop and produce a new generation of metal-free dental implants to improve significantly oral health and aesthetics. The innovative manufacturer turns ceramic implant systems design and manufacturing ideas into a high-quality, reliable and low cost reality. MABB’s current strategic alliances are: FAN (Nanotechnology Foundation of Argentina); NGO EMPREAR (Argentinean Entrepreneurs); IAOCI (International Academy of Ceramic Implants).

Daniel explained more about how his journey started in another recent interview. You can find the English translation in the comments below.

MABB produces large amounts of precision parts at a very low per-unit cost using Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM) technology. The revolutionary CIM process gives manufacturers the possibility of producing parts similar in shape to those available in plastic, while at the same time taking advantage of the advanced nanoceramics resistance and inertness. Their technology, along with the raw materials used, translate into a revolution in the way implantable medical devices of complex shapes are made, which were very difficult or even impossible to produce until now due to their high hardness and fragility during the process.

On the other hand, the CIM technology incorporated in MABB allows the production of pieces with reentrant angles, blind holes, internal and external threads, profiles of complex surfaces, perpendicular holes and intricate cavities in a single step and without intermediate processes.

 

Dentacoin Implemented by MABB

The forward thinking inherent in MABB’s CEO Daniel Miguez naturally led him to Dentacoin. From now on the innovative manufacturing company will start accepting DCN for their products, thus expanding the currency application field even further. We sat down with MABB’s CEO, Daniel Miguez to discuss the potential of both the project and our cooperation:

“I believe that in 10 years more than 30% of humanity will be using crypto-currencies and blockchain processes, so, Dentacoin has an enormous opportunity to establish itself as a leading e-platform that enables patients, dental professionals, dental clinics, technical laboratories, distributors and the industry that supply the elements and together with MABB, among others, use Dentacoin to accelerate or facilitate the access to a better oral health to all humanity, regardless of social classes.”

Mr. Miguez also shared the five main aspects of the future cooperation between MABB and Dentacoin:

  1. Accepting dental laboratory payments in Dentacoin
  2. Expanding the value chain to their suppliers and strategic partners
  3. Applying Dentacoin to medical charity, volunteering and development causes
  4. Allowing investors to enter their road shows totally, or partially with Dentacoin 
  5. Combining efforts in improving people’s welfare globally and pursuing the 17 UN objectives.

 

When asked about how he sees the future of dentistry, Daniel responded that:

“An emerging trend is the digital transformation, blockchain, crypto-currencies and 4.0 industry revolution that will lower the cost of dental implant surgeries in the next 5 years significantly, from an average of $5 000 to $1 000 or less in the USA, and from 3 000 to 600 or less in Europe, and less than $400usd in emerging countries in Latin America, Asia, and Africa. This will allow an increase of toothless people that have access to dental implants, from the current 5% to more than 30% of the population. So, a total revolution is coming very soon.”

Attracting as partners a leading dental implant manufacturer like MABB is a huge step forward for Dentacoin towards its goal to bring the much needed efficiencies in all areas of the dental industry. Along with Bredent, MABB is now the second dental industry manufacturer to join the Dentacoin partner network and our first partner in Argentina. See all Dentacoin partners here:

Daniel Miguez Interview English translation:

As a child I got involved with the world of dental implants by accident, because the father of a childhood friend created in Buenos Aires in the 80’s a laboratory where the first dental implants were tested on monkeys, and as a child we played and took care of them .

Once grew up, my friend Guido Sarnachiaro became a leading doctor in Implantology in the US, and in my case an engineer passionate about high technology, innovation and entrepreneurship, and causally uniting these two areas I found a great opportunity and problem at the same time, for which, I decided to create a company of Bioengineering and Biomaterials, called MABB, to take care of it.

In this regard, in the world, only 5% of the world toothless population accesses a dental implant operation. And according to the World Health Organization there are more than 500 million people who do not receive help to be able to place them and that generates not only great human suffering, but trillions of dollars that are spent on medical attention to address the secondary problems that this generates , from gastritis to ulcer deaths.

On the other hand, among those who can pay there is a growing trend in demanding dental implants free of metal, due to the positive effect on health and aesthetics, but today 99% of implants are metallic. Another problem is that Ceramic implants of good quality are 3 times more expensive than metal implants.

The solution or value proposition that our company MABB achieved in 12 years of strong innovation and development, in partnership with the NGO EMPREAR and the Argentine foundation of Nanotechnology – FAN, and together with a multidisciplinary team of engineers, scientists, doctors and entrepreneurs is to have designed and produced pieces for dental implants made in a revolutionary nanoceramic called zirconia Yttria, which has the advantage of being the closest thing to human bone, it is white, totally inert, it does not rust or stain the gums, it is antibacterial and does not block totally the natural light, which is not only healthy but aesthetic.

At the same time, we managed to equip our plant located in the FAN with the latest ceramic injection MOULDING technology by Ultra high pressure and the best thing is that we generate a cheaper product than metallic and higher quality than our global competition.

This allows us to sell the product globally, we are already exporting to Turkey and through customers to Israel, Mexico and Spain and we plan to enter the Brazilian market this year, and in the next ones build two more plants, one in the US and one in Germany.

We are convinced that we have activated a positive revolution to promote oral health and improve the economy and self-esteem of the population that requires dental implants.

Something to highlight is that our company generates triple impact, does not pollute the environment and we are committed to making donations of the product in public hospitals.
