When choosing dental technology for your practice, it can be difficult due to the amount of variability between the way we all practice. However, when it comes down to it, we generally all have the same questions and concerns that might keep us from making a technology purchase. How big is the learning curve? How will my staff react to this change? What is the return on investment, and does it make sense for me? In this talk, Dr. Mennito will discuss how he has utilized digital technology in his practice over the past decade to make it more efficient and profitable. Furthermore, he’ll discuss how to overcome implementation hurdles in order to reap the rewards that come with digitizing your practice.

Course Objectives:
• Discuss digital impression systems and which questions to ask when making this purchase.
• Learn about the benefits of chairside milling utilizing CADCAM technology.
• Discuss 3D printing and how it can augment your digital workflow.
• Learn why the CBCT is the piece of technology that you never knew you needed.
• Explore how digital planning can help make implant planning a slam dunk.
• Discuss digital design and the best ways to accomplish this either yourself, or with a third-party service.
• Review modern materials and discuss strategies for material selection.
