Cristina Sabau gives interview on Chiral Systems and the future of Dental Technology in Europe on Romanian national TV
Over the Christmas break Cristina Sabau, Managing Director of Chiral Systems gave an interview on Romanian national television on Chiral Systems and the future of dental technology in Europe.
The points discussed during the TV interview were mainly about the achievements Chiral Systems has been awarded by the Dental Industry in the UK , as well as the product scalability potential in Europe and worldwide. Nevertheless, they were mainly interested in whether Chiral Systems would consider bringing their technology to Romania, where the dental sector is still lagging behind other European countries. Cristina explained that Chiral was built with scalability in mind and realistically, from a technical point of view, all that needs to be done is the translation of the software and the compliance with the local national health system in each country to roll out Chiral Systems outside the United Kingdom.
Regarding Romanian dentists benefiting from using the Chiral Systems technology, there would be different ways of penetrating the market: by simply commercialising the software as a private company, or partnering up with local software companies that already have the infrastructure for development and support or even a private public partnership with the Romanian government.
Although the software already aims to provide best practice, Cristina mentioned that the team at Chiral could also bring know-how, expertise and experience of being part of a Dental System that is far more advanced and works better than the current health system in Romania when it comes to reporting and compliance.
Consequently, after the show, Cristina has already been approached by quite a few government officials and local businesses and hopefully, in the near future, we will be able to indeed take Chiral Systems to Romania and different markets.
