Course Description

The landscape of clinical dentistry is changing rapidly with an ever-increasing variety of digital technologies replacing the analog techniques with which we are so comfortable. This is especially true in the realm of impression making procedures and chair side prosthesis manufacturing. However, at each phase of restorative and implant treatment, processes can be digitized, resulting in the virtualization of the patient from diagnosis through prosthesis delivery. These digital technologies will be explored to generate familiarity with their capabilities, advantages, and disadvantages. Are these new technologies jeopardizing the role of the dental technologist as a member of the team? Does the scientific evidence support the routine clinical use of these emerging technologies for the evolving virtual dental patient, and ultimately improving patient care?
