Digital dentistry has exploded in recent years and there are no signs of it slowing down. New technology has made it possible to do things we could only dream of a few years ago. However, the transition from analog to digital is not without pitfalls. It can be incredibly difficult to know where to start, what to buy, and how to integrate new technologies once you have them. But for those who push through these challenges, the benefits are hard to overstate. A digital approach has the potential to offer superior results in less time and for less money than traditional analog approaches. In this course, Dr. Glenn will share his journey into digital dentistry using real world cases from many different disciplines of dentistry. In particular, we'll focus on how to achieve better treatment plans by creating a "virtual patient" and how to more efficiently execute complex treatment plans with a digital approach. Along the way, Dr. Glenn will provide a practical roadmap to success for those who are just beginning their digital journey.
