NEW DATE | Friday, January 17, 2020



Rapid advances in technology have transformed modern life, with a number of important manifestations in oral health. Digital technologies now provide compelling alternatives to historic analog approaches in restorative dentistry. Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), which utilizes digital image-capturing, design, and fabrication, has arguably now become a standard expectation for the dentist-in-training. Furthermore, an informed patient population rightfully requests the most current and evidence-based treatment paradigms. This course emphasizes a hands-on experience in CAD/CAM dentistry for single-unit restorations and serves as a gateway to the brave new world of digital dentistry.



Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Explain how classic biomechanical, prosthodontic and esthetic principles are preserved and translated in a digital approach to restorative treatment
  • Scan and assemble a digital impression of a single-unit restoration preparation
  • Digitally design a single-unit restoration from a scanned preparation
