Course Details


With the advent of digital dentistry, clinicians find themselves inundated with new materials, hardware, and software in daily practice. A thorough comprehension of the technologies will help us integrate digital solutions to promote communication, as well as accelerating treatment processes, and optimizing treatment outcomes. This presentation will allow dentists to become familiar with the digital workflow with an emphasis on the implementation of the additive manufacturing, namely 3D printing technology for dental implant surgeries.
