A New York native, Dr. Nima Massoomi, is a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who attended the University of Pennsylvania where he received his Dental and Masters in Education. He then attended Medical school at Vanderbilt University where he also completed his Oral Surgery residency in 2007. This was followed by a Cosmetic surgery fellowship in 2008 at Ohio State alongside Dr. T. William Evans, fine-tuning his skills in the management of the soft tissue and skin. He is currently a clinical instructor at the Department of Oral Surgery at the University of Pacific in San Francisco and maintains two practices in San Francisco and Cupertino. He has lectured nationally and internationally on the use of technology in oral surgical procedures, with a goal of improving surgical outcomes using CBCT technology. Most recently, he was part of the team that brought to market the first FDA-approved robot “Yomi” for Dental Surgery in January 2017. This was after many years of collaboration with a team of scientists and engineers at Neocis in Miami, Fl. The Yomi robot will have the capabilities of performing a wide variety of oral surgical procedures, based on 3D CBCT data, being able to provide same-day surgery from start to finish.

blankSean Boatright is a Certified Prosthetist, practicing in the East Bay.  He studied prosthetics at Cal State Dominguez Hills and has been working in the field of Orthotics and Prosthetics since 2006.  He has been with Diablo Prosthetics & Orthotics in Walnut Creek, CA for the past 6 years. Had one of the first patients to walk on an entirely 3D printed prosthesis and continues to utilize the technology to better provide for his patients.




Eric Chen is co-founder and CEO of Bellus3D, a computer vision startup developing next-generation 3D scanning technology. Bellus3D’s Face Camera Pro is a high-resolution, 3D face scanning camera targeted at a wide variety of new innovative uses in professional and medical markets. Bellus3D FaceApp for iOS uses iPhone X’s TrueDepth camera to deliver lifelike 3D face scanning to millions of consumers. Eric started his career as a car designer but fell in love with computer graphics and vision. He was a co-inventor and technical lead of Apple’s QuickTime VR, and holds 17 US patents. He has founded multiple startups with successful exits, including RealSpace (acquired by Live Picture), Presenter.com (acquired by WebEx), and Persony (acquired by Avaya). He still spends many hours writing code and has no intention to stop any time soon.


blankAnna Galdina has been part of the Artec 3D team from the very first days, so she knows all there is to know about 3D scanning technology. Handheld, stationary, laser or white-light scanners; you name it, she knows it! For more than a decade, Anna has played a vital role in developing and promoting 3D scanning solutions in multiple sectors, including the healthcare industry, all over the world. Having initiated and coordinated numerous 3D scanning projects in the medical industry, Anna is a true expert in tailor-made 3D scanning solutions for a range of healthcare applications from orthopedics to maxillofacial surgery.
