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.

Doctors will be supervised and assisted by Drs. Sulaiman, Abdulmajeed, and Hess.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discussion and performance of crown preparation techniques.
  2. Introduction to inlay/onlay design, preparation, and seating.
  3. Review of tissue management protocols.
  4. Use of intraoral scanner.
  5. Digital design and milling of Provisionals and final restorations.
  6. Perform finishing of final restorations including stain and glaze.
  7. Review and delivery of final restorations via most up-to-date cementation materials and techniques.
