(This course is not offered this year)
Cad/Cam dentistry is no longer the future… it is here! The past couple of years has brought several new and improved systems to the dental marketplace. These systems are competing with faster hardware, better software and each day more and more practices are considering the investment in chairside cad cam dentistry.
Would you chose to fabricate restorations in one day in your office? Or would you prefer to send the digital data to your favorite dental laboratory? These are questions that this course aims to help you answer. With enough information, you can decide what best fits you, your personality and your practice before you make an investment in the equipment.
This course is designed to allow the participating dentist to get some practical, hands-on experience using some of the latest scanners in the market in actual cases on live patients.
