3(D)entistry Roadmap: Paradigm Shift Ahead.
During this course we will discuss 2D v 3D imaging: is it time for a paradigm shift in how we use these technologies in practice? An all digital implant workflow beginning with the end in mind that is more efficient and profitable will be presented. We will discuss intraoral scanning and CAD/CAM workflows, including same-visit restorations, smile design, and esthetic cases. 3D printing workflows, including models, nightguards, deprogrammers, provisional retainers, and smile mockups.
This course will show attendees how the 3D digital puzzle pieces, including intraoral scanner, milling unit, CBCT, and 3D printer work together to improve efficiency and profit, while providing better care and outcomes for their patients. Attendees will learn entrepreneurial and healthcare strategies of 3D digital dentistry and step by step workflows.
