Lee Culp, CDT: is the CEO of Sculpture Studios, and is a recognized pioneer in Digital Dentistry and advanced functional aesthetic dentistry. He holds true to a belief that the attainment of perfection in restorative dentistry can only be harnessed through a unique combination of skillful application coupled with superior knowledge. As a world-renowned innovator and educator, he maintains an unparalleled focus and commitment to understanding the revolutionary, often complex, changes that continue to influence modern aesthetic dentistry.


As dentistry evolves into the digital world, the successful incorporation of computerization and new technology will continue to provide more efficient methods of communication and fabrication. At the same time, retaining the individual creativity and artistry of the skilled dentist and dental technician, while the utilization of new technology will continue to enhance the close cooperation and working relationship of the dentist/technician team. This presentation will offer participants a unique insight into digital design by creating a Virtual Patient by combining 3D Face Scanning, IOS and CT scans. A combination of Diagnostic, Restorative, Orthodontic, Denture and Implant Planning software will be utilized for pre-surgical planning. This information will allow us to design and print diagnostic wax-ups and milled provisional PMMA restorations, and their digital replicas to guide us in the creation of CAD-CAM restorations, for both tooth and implant supported prosthetics.

  • Identify how to create a 3D virtual patient layered digital scan
  • Recognize how to adapt conventional techniques to CAD-CAM technology
  • Develop better dentist/laboratory communication
  • Understand digital implants, planning, surgical guides, and final restorations
  • Compare restorative material choices
*Attend all 5 virtual sessions, and receive 5 CE Credits or take courses individually (a la carte) and receive 1 CE credit per each session taken.
Credits will be distributed at the end of the Spring (June 22, 2022).
