3D Facial Scanning is the last piece of the Digital Work Flow, that allows ideal complete "Digital Avatar" from the clinician to the laboratory. This will allow the team of clinicians, surgeons and labs to see the final product in real-time. This will reduce chair time, reduce mistakes, and correct occlusion and position of the teeth which enhances facial aesthetics and the final outcome. 

After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Learn how 3-D facial scanning can help complete diagnostics and treatment planning
  • Discuss why central incisor position is crucial in all restorative treatments
  • Identify accuracy and efficiency of data alignment
  • Describe dental Avatar for ideal communication
