Digital dentistry has captured the interest of many dentists. With a vast number of CAD/CAM options available it is hard to decide on scanners, in-office vs laboratory fabrication, partial vs full coverage, materials, and preparation & seating protocols. This course will provide guidance on how, why, and when to transition from analog to digital.
As a hands-on digital dentistry course, dentists will be introduced to CAD/CAM dentistry. Participants will perform clinical exercises on typodonts and earn 16 Hrs of participation CE credit in either 250- Operative Dentistry or 610- Fixed Prosthodontics subject codes based on actual hours attended.
