Digital Dentistry in Your Practice - The Future is Now

In this hands-on course, participants will utilize, evaluate and compare the most popular intraoral scanners on the market.

Course Synopsis

Presenters: Siamak Abai, DDS, MMedSc and Dr. Justin Chi, DDS, CDT

Advancements in technology have brought a wave of digital solutions to the restorative dentist. At the leading edge of technology are intraoral scanners, providing accurate transfer of information from the dental chair to the laboratory or chairside mill, leading to a more efficient dental practice.

In this hands-on course, participants will utilize, evaluate and compare the most popular intraoral scanners on the market. Live patient demonstrations will highlight a completely digital and integrated approach for patient care, resulting in accurate and efficient treatment while reducing chair time and cost. Cut through the marketing "noise" and find the system that is right for you. This program may save you years of frustration from making the wrong choice. Do not purchase an intraoral scanner before attending this course.
