Occlusion for the esthetic dentist in the digital age

Technology is changing everything we do and dentistry is adapting to the new digital era. We have more information and data than ever and we need to try and understand how to use this information and blend it with the timeless principles that have helped us provide predictable solutions over the years. Face scanning, jaw tracking, digital occlusion, digital planning and smile design have all become simpler and more cost effective than ever but if we are not careful technology can just get us into trouble quicker. In this short lecture Ian will introduce a new digital concept for diagnosing, planning and executing esthetic cases predictably and efficiently.
