Course Description:

Both Clear Aligners and Indirect Bonding Trays offer us the opportunity to not only provide our patients with highly sought after care, but also improved occlusion and overall oral health. Digital Dentistry specifically helps us to plan more efficiency and improve results.

This course will show the attendee how to quickly integrate Digital Orthodontics into his/her office or laboratory. We will discuss patient evaluation, case planning, 3D printing, and treatment delivery. We’ll even discuss how to outsource any aspect of this process that the attendee wishes. In the end, we’ll discuss how to deliver treatment that patient WANT, while delivering better results, saving SIGNIFICANT overhead, and doing all this as efficiently as possible.


Note: This course will help familiarize attendees with the use of the BlueSkyPlan’s Orthodontic Module. This software is truly changing the field of in-house orthodontics. This course will give you the jump-start you need to bring Digital Orthodontics to your office right away. But, please keep in mind, to fully learn the software abilities, it is HIGHLY encouraged that you bring a laptop, and a laptop capable of CAD design. A new laptop can easily be found for less than $1000. For laptop suggestions, please visit: https://www.barongrutterdds.com/technology/
