Dental Art Innovation was founded in 2014 by Dr. Sigal Jacobson, a cosmetic dentist from Australia, with the vision to develop and bring to the dental industry innovative products that create simple, predictable and minimally invasive tools to the dental world. Dr. Jacobson believes in preserving the healthy tooth structure and working with composites.
Her first invention was the Uveneer system—the first template kit for anterior composites in the world that is reusable and creates the prefect anatomy and proportions. She created this kit from her own need as she struggled with creating aesthetic and predictable composite veneers in a reasonable amount of chair time.
In 2019, due to demand from existing Uveneer users, the Uveneer Extra kit was developed. It added new template forms with additional sizes and increased natural surface texture. Both of those kits are distributed globally exclusively by Ultradent.
In 2020 the Paladex system was launched. Paladex is a unique silicon-based template kit that assists in creating the palatal surface in cases of missing parts of the tooth, e.g., diastema closures, peg laterals, fractures, class III and class IV composites.
In addition to running a dental clinic in Melbourne, Dr. Jacobson and her partner Mr. David Shagan are developing additional products and run courses all around the world training dentists on simplifying procedures aiming to rely on advanced bonding techniques to avoid the destruction of any healthy tooth structure.
