- This event has passed.
CE Credits: 3
Cost: $149 Per Doctor, $99 Per Additional Attendee
Digital technology is quickly changing the landscape in dentistry. Now, more than ever, the general practitioner can keep complex treatments and lab work in-house that were previously outsourced at a steep time and monetary cost. This course will overview a few of the in-office benefits that digital dentistry offers. We will discuss interpretation of CBCT data for implant planning, collection of intraoral scan data, design and in-office fabrication of a surgical guide, 3D printing for nightguards, and more.
