Digital Dentistry

The digital dentistry methodologies and equipment modeled in the course will demonstrate, at last, a turn key solution to the many barriers dentists often face when looking to convert their practice to a digital platform. The course is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive picture of what it means to be digital in the workplace, including functionality of equipment and daily workflow, and to emphasize how to utilize the integrated avenues of technology to maximize efficiency and patient satisfaction. The course will take participants through a complete patient appointment, beginning with the new patient experience and extending to cover clinical data collection and evaluation, treatment planning and patient walkout methodology. Digital technology such as a DSLR camera, digital x-rays, intra-oral scanner, a 3-D printer and a mill will be employed from start to finish as participants learn how to manipulate and complete measurements for images, radiographs and digital impressions, how to use photos, x-rays, measurements and scans to create an accurate patient risk model and how to create multiple treatment options such as a Kois Deprogrammer, Kois Night Guard, Smile Mock up, surgical guide, provisional, etc.
