The 2021 Digital Dentistry Symposium is more than a virtual conference. It is an opportunity to expand your concept of what is possible in dentistry, through the skilled application of digital technology.
As technology advances, adapts, and grows, so do the boundaries of possibility. This virtual event will highlight speakers, workflows, and technologies that are taking us far beyond the boundaries of traditional dentistry.
Attendees will walk away with multiple new approaches and techniques that can be immediately applied to everyday clinical practice. Leaders in the fields of dentistry, surgery, and even application engineering who have fully embraced this digital technology will impart their knowledge and wisdom, gained through personal use and mastery of these innovations. With this broad spectrum of speakers from across the globe, the value of this course is undeniable.
Led by Program Chair Dr. Robert W. Berg, the symposium begins with a day of practical, informative sessions from the companies behind the latest digital innovations. Then the course will feature head-to-head sessions offering differing perspectives or approaches on several aspects of digital technology, including:
- Artificial Intelligence
- Communication & Digital Workflows
- Practice Integration
- Printing & Milling
- Chairside Digital Dentistry
- And much more!
Each session will be available on-demand after it occurs, and attendees will have access to all of the content through the end of the year on ACP Anywhere. This event will be worth 7.75 CE credits.
At the conclusion of this symposium, attendees will be able to:
- Adapt and apply digital dentistry into everyday practice.
- Define available digital workflows (both surgical and restorative), materials, and manufacturing techniques available for everyday practice.
- Recognize how new digital offerings may change how we practice now, and acknowledge this is just the beginning.
Prosthodontists, general dentists, residents, dental students, dental laboratory technicians, and dental professionals with an interest in advanced dental technology.
