Quotations:

“If I told you that I can 3D print your teeth in 25 minutes that is better than your God-given one, or if the one you’re born with, you would have said, this is not real. This is science fiction. But it’s happening right now.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“That is the efficiency that we believe in this time and age when everyone is in a hurry, people don’t have time, and people are busy. Expecting people to go back twice, three times for a dental appointment is just not reasonable.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“Let me tell you this, just a part of digitizing your teeth, this is what every one of us needs, a bio, almost digital bio copy of our teeth as we age. This is something that you want every year, a digital scanning of your teeth because you’re going to lose a tooth here and there.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“You don’t want something to be designed with AI. It’s a bio copy of your own teeth. So the entry to this digital dentistry world is a scanning technology.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“If you think about it, this is, we’re giving someone else another 20, 30 years worth of life to that teeth. And it’s just possible with the advancement of biomaterial as well as digital technology.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“We have our own issues and challenges in life. We all grind our teeth, no matter what income class you are at, that happens. And the ability and I mean, grinding teeth is the beginning of it. And then it goes to gum recession. That’s the next thing that happens. And it goes into the whole downward spiral of losing a lot of your health in the oral cavity.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“Once that damage is done, you’re right. The quality of life drastically drops. You go from biting on one apple to eating good food, and good nutrition, to not enjoying eating and not getting the nutrition you want.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“Using 3D printing and milling technology that are fabricated, you have up to 85 % of your original teeth back.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“Don’t quit. Keep going. Do something disruptive. Don’t just get out of college and just go the normal way that everyone else goes. That’s what I did.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“You can turn anything into your passion. It’s all about being a little, having a little bit of perseverance taking pleasure in solving those problems and making progress, and turning it into positive reinforcement.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“Companies with absolute obsession over product developments are the ones who are winning today and we see it over and over and over.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“Once you conceive the product idea to the point that you bring it to life, the job begins. You have to come up with the next one.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“What keeps people excited is that shared vision that really being excited about making a difference and the ability to bring something that is disruptive.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“To me, failing, if you keep trying, it’s not failing. That’s the reality.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“So if you can sustain and survive a long term trying is where people start to see success.” ~ Amir Monsouri

“You can’t be a hundred percent of the time, right? you make bad decisions and good decisions as long as the sum of the good decisions is better than bad decisions. You survive and win.” ~ Amir Monsouri
