New Volume 3! In our Volume 3, our biggest update yet, we have released incredible new updates on the latest trends in scanning, printing, software, and now… milling!
Are you confused by 3D Printing? Does the thought of being able to go completely digital terrify you? Have you always wanted to make your own surgical guides or crowns? Have you talked to sales reps for dental companies and frustrated by how much it costs to get into printing in your own practice/lab?
This exciting course covers everything you, your assistants, and your laboratory needs to know about 3D printing and will answer all of your digital questions and address your digital concerns! We cover the basics all the way up to the advanced level methods of using intraoral and optical scanning techniques, free software to edit dental models, 3D printing techniques, and multiple methods for fabricating surgical guides. We teach using low-cost, desktop grade 3D printers that cost less than $4,000 for a printer and dental models only cost around $1-2 each and surgical guides $4-5 each! We also teach established workflows using affordable laboratory printing and milling equipment to print and mill occlusal guards and crowns!!
Also included is up to 46 continuing education credits provided by UNLV School of Dental Medicine. Once fully completed, the course provides hours of video-based learning credits and independent study CE credits for your dental boards and AGD credits!
This course utilizes learning skills and educational content that is 10% projection slides and 90% video-based education. We emphasize simulated “LIVE” video based techniques to demonstrate the use of scanners, printers, software, and surgical guide fabrication and demonstration. You will be provided with files containing DICOM and STL files of demonstrated cases for you to follow along. Finally, we provide multiple “cheat-sheet” handouts for you to print in your practice to simplify digital techniques for you and your assistants to best learn all of these technologies!
