Webinar: The Transition to Digital - Part II

As dentistry evolves into the digital world, the successful incorporation of computerization and new technology will continue to provide more efficient methods of communication and fabrication.

The utilization of new digital technology will continue to enhance the close cooperation and working relationship of the dentist/technician team, while at the same time retaining the individual creativity and artistry of the skilled dental technician and dentist.
These advancements are not something that will “eventually” emerge in the market, they are realities that are currently being released to further revolutionize the quality of dental care that is being delivered in modern restorative dentistry.

The progressive digital laboratory will have the potential to become the ultimate facilitator of design and communication between all specialties of restorative dentistry involved in patient care, as we now have the ability to diagnosis, treatment plan and restore on a virtual patient with multiple combined data sets.

Aspects to be covered:

  • Learn how to create the virtual patient: with CT, IOS, Facial scanning, and digital facebow and articulation.
  • Explore new ways to achieve optimal Dentist/Surgeon/Technician teamwork, using digital communication and design, and new-shared responsibilities, with Technical-Dentist, Clinical-Technician and Restorative-Surgeon designations.
  • Understand the Restorative services that the Digital laboratory can offer, from simple restorations, Digital Dentures, Orthodontics, to complex Implant and Maxillofacial surgery.
