i.Dental Launches Invisalign(R) Dedicated Clinic

i.Dental Invisalign Dedicated Clinic wants Singaporeans to experience the Invisalign experience by providing premium, trustworthy, and professional service.

Singapore, June 26, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - i.Dental Clinic, an Invisalign Platinum Elite Provider and trusted name in the field of dentistry, announced today the launch of the i.Dental Invisalign Dedicated Clinic in Singapore. This clinic uses cutting edge dental technology to bring out one's best smile of healthy and beautiful teeth.

"Studies[1] have shown that 8 in 10 surveyed Singaporeans think people with straight teeth are happy. This figure was also consistent in showing that they thought they were more likely to get a date," said Julie Tay, Asia Pacific Vice President of Align Technology, makers of the Invisalign system - the leading clear aligner brand. "This shows that Singaporeans are aware that straight teeth can boost one's self-esteem."

The same study showed that 46% of surveyed Singaporeans resisted dental treatment due to fear of pain. 22% resisted due to a prior uncomfortable experience and 20% thought they were too old for orthodontic treatment.

"Invisalign clear aligners minimises discomfort by moving your teeth bit by bit with each tray," said Dr. Cheng Eng Wah, founder and principal surgeon at i.Dental. The clinic will also feature other state-of-the-art technologies like the iTero intraoral Scanner to capture impressions of teeth making it easier to get started. "Your smile is unique to you and here at i.Dental, we bring out your best smile, to best suit your face."

i.Dental provides dental services for children, teens, adults, and ageing adults using preventive, restorative and aesthetic dental treatment. This broad range of services parallels the fact that Invisalign clear aligners are suitable for teens and adults.

Come 25 June, the opening of the i.Dental Invisalign Dedicated Clinic will be overseen by Mr. Thomas M. Prescott, President and Chief Executive Officer of Align Technology Inc. The newly renovated clinic will be situated at Capital Tower, #09-13, and will be open from Mondays to Fridays from 9 A.M. to 8 P.M., and on Saturdays from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M.

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
