OWLLAB organizes the processes of your dental laboratory centrally with the help of numerous interfaces to CAD/CAM software, intraoral scan portals and more. On this page you can see some videos translated into English on the topic
We are often asked where OWLLAB is used in the dental laboratory. The answer is simple: “Wherever data is generated that you don’t want to constantly worry about the structure of”. Owllab works future-oriented in the multi-network in every department where you want it. You can also use OWLLAB as a “stand-alone solution” at just one workstation, e.g. for smart MDR documentation.
This is how working with OWLLAB
could look like in your laboratory
Incoming orders & administration
With the help of the "Digital OWLLAB order" module, you can equip your dental customers with compatible order software. A dentist either sends you complete orders online, e.g. including appointment scheduling, tooth cross, additional requests, intraoral scans, DVTs, photos, etc. - or generate a QR code, print it out and attach it to the working documents & impressions. All you have to do now is scan a QR code, have barcodes printed automatically, create an image of the working documents and, if available, accept a cost estimate for your digital service processing.
Ideally, you should use the OWLLAB system in every room or department, including work preparation. This may have decisive advantages. With Owllab, you register the location of your orders so that you can view an overview of the location at any time. Employees in work preparation can already store their service items in the system.
If you work with CADCAM technologies, OWLLAB can save you a large number of work steps.
In OWLLAB, STL files, intraoral scans or other files can be stored directly in the digital order and exported directly to CADCAM programs. The MDR-compliant documentation of material batches can also be carried out at this point.

A dentist either sends you complete orders online, e.g. including appointment scheduling, tooth cross, additional requests, intraoral scans, DVTs, photos, etc. – or generate a QR code, print it out and attach it to the working documents & impressions. However, whereas previously you received order information on paper and laboriously transferred various pieces of information to your systems, now you simply scan a QR code, have barcodes printed automatically, create an image of the working documents and, if available, accept a cost estimate for your digital service processing.
Ideally, you should use the OWLLAB system in every room or department, including work preparation. This may have decisive advantages. With Owllab, you register the location of your orders so that you can view an overview of the location at any time. Even the smallest parts, such as implant parts, can be tagged with a mini QR code. So nothing ever gets lost again. Employees in work preparation can already enter their service items in the system if they wish, or use the ticket system to leave a question or note about a job with a department or laboratory manager.
If the work preparation department notices that particularly good or particularly questionable work documents regularly arrive from a practitioner, this can be stored in the risk manager, including with image information, without prior meeting barriers. During subsequent quality analyses, both positive and negative reports can be clarified in a targeted manner.
Batch documentation in connection with MDR is a fairly “modern” but annoying topic. One thing is clear, unfortunately we can’t get around it – but with OWLLAB, the tedious act becomes a completely routine minor matter. All you need is a PC or tablet with OWLLAB available in a room. Now product codes can simply be scanned one after the other and then the tray label can be scanned by OWLLAB and the job is done.
Employees can answer queries about orders such as “was there a second crush bite attached at the beginning of the job” themselves.
Using a messenger integration, dentists can send in additional media such as images, videos or voice messages using their smartphone.
Customer requests are always displayed in the orders and transferred to compatible CAD software. So nothing is forgotten. High-quality images from digital cameras can be received in real time from the treatment room via a cloud connection.
Services are recorded digitally, so there is no paperwork and transparency for all team members.
Digital dental technology is our keyword, because digital dental technology has already reached most dental laboratories. Information and data are therefore being generated in more and more places in our companies. Over time, new software solutions have been added in various areas of dental technology. One problem is that there is no central data structure. This is precisely where OWLLAB comes in.
OWLLAB wants to be smart together and closes this precarious gap in your dental laboratory with the help of more and more interfaces and automatically generated folder structures in the network. The basic version of OWLLAB already includes a great deal free of charge, including the entire order management, an STL.viewer, MDR tools, a merchandise management system, messenger and cloud integration, as well as the option to send design data to all CAM and printer systems known on the market. Compatible CAD systems can be integrated for a small surcharge.
OWLLAB is compatible with a wide range of accounting software in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. OWLLAB makes your billing digitally accessible for your entire team and simplifies digital team play enormously. If you use accounting software that is compatible with OWLBill, you benefit from numerous advantages:
- No more need to enter or transfer order information (if a digital OWL order has been created in the practice)
- Automatic assignment of existing cost estimates
- No double entry between administration and billing software
- Order management, MDR documentation, quality management and billing in one software package
- Service items & batches are completed in the network directly at the workstation and transferred to billing
Technician splitting and production step allocation possible in advance
The billing software Dewis, which is compatible with OWLBill, can be tested free of charge on request when using an OWLLAB license.
NEW! “OWLCar”, the dental laboratory messenger service software
Compatible with OWLLAB and can also be used “standalone”.
OWLLAB digitizes and organizes your dental process chains in the dental laboratory from A–Z.
In combination with your OWLLAB, you can now also systematize your errands and make them smart and clear for your team. If you do not use OWLLAB order management software, you can also use OWLCar separately from OWLLAB.
Messenger drivers can open their user interface with their smartphones used for business purposes or with “Android CAR” and receive further orders or changed route details “in real time” in addition to their intelligently planned daily routes. Using a separate “APP” (device and operating system independent), courier drivers can interact with the dental laboratory using a chat system. Awesome, isn’t it? But it gets even cleverer.
On the laboratory side, planning is really smart and coherent. When an order is received, a completion or delivery date is usually known so that routes are already planned and can be scheduled by the software in individually plannable routes or distributed manually by the laboratory management.
If an urgent collection is then ordered, e.g. by telephone or via order software, the software automatically determines the driver who is the closest to the desired collection point. Really professional.
With just one click of the mouse and, if necessary, a little information text, the desired driver is commissioned online and in real time and receives a corresponding message on their navigation device or smartphone. Pick-ups can easily be rescheduled if the order needs to be changed.
