  • Comparison  of wired and wireless systems.
  • Networking and telecommunication.
  • Integration with office data management systems.
  • Technical issues of image resolution, file size, storage, and compatibility.
  • Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT).

Digital Photography: A perfect match for modern practices.

  • Pre- and post-operative photos of esthetic cases and oral lesions.
  • Communications with laboratories and specialists.
  • Equipment – from “need it” to “want it.”
  • Intra and extraoral photographs.
  • Lighting and best image formats.
  • Post-capture optimization.
  • Integration with practice management software.
  • Communication with your photographs.

A Peek into the World of Digital Dentistry

  • Problems associated with conventional impressions.
  • Advantages of digital dentistry.
  • Basic components of CAD/CAM technology; data acquisition, design software, and manufacturing (processing devices.)
  • Comparison of different intra-oral scanners.
