    Digismile / design4me

    Your time is precious, we design for you! 

    design4me was born from a meeting between 2 digital dentistry fans :
    Olivier BOUJENAH, dental surgeon for over 25 years, CEO of DIGISMILE (a training company in digital dentistry, guided surgery, CAD CAM...), also trainer for other companies such as StraumannGroup, Align... Member of the Master Digital team at the Geneva faculty.
    Francesco Zammillo, dental technician, specialized in digital technologies, advanced in all new techniques.
    In 2018, therefore, this project began when they realized that throughout the digital workflow, designing would be the critical part for laboratories and dentists who would like to take a step towards this digitalization.

    English language

    TOIC > 900

    I actually have mostly learned English while living in Chicago. Some may think that I speak Mid-western American rather than Oxford English. The important is that I get myself understood on both side of the Atlantic

    Italian language

    Speaking rather than writing

    For a French, speaking Italian is not very useful since our latin cousins normally understand French. But living in Milan has given me a closer access to the unique Italian culture wonders

    German language


    I started learning German during high school when I was 13 years old. I unfortunately was not very motivated then. I can still ask my direction in the streets of Berlin or Munich
