Updated: Apr 18, 2019
Date & Time: June 29th, 9am to 4:30pm
Location: World Academy of Dental Education
13043 166th St. Cerritos CA. 90703
Presented by : Dr. Michael Scherer DMD, MS, FACP
Participants will attend a full-day, 8 hour hands-on workshop which focuses on digital dentistry background, techniques, and case-based learning. This course aims to describe the background, theory, and procedures related to intraoral optical image production and generating open stereolithography files to utilize in image fusion on cone-beam CT radiographs to enhance visualization and assist in implant treatment planning and fabricating surgical guides. Finally, participants will actively utilize intraoral scanners and CBCT machines and learn how they can be utilized with 3D printing technology.
• Understand principles, theory and procedures of intraoral optical scanning technology
• Exposure to information related to image manipulation and stereolithography
• Acquire knowledge and confidence in utilizing optical images to join restorative images on cone-beam CT scans
• Exposure with 3D printing surgical guides and models to prepare them for use in surgical procedures
