a place, meeting, or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged.
"it will be a forum for consumers to exchange their views on digital dentistry"
The mission of digital dentistry forum is to be the # 1 source of training and education in digital dentistry. The scope of subjects will include, CBCT imaging, Intra-Oral imaging for restorations, CAD software, CAM hardware, 3D printing and Lasers. Information will not be restricted to a single manufacturer or product and provide a broad and unbiased perspective on various topics. Currently available resources are restricted in their scope and this fails to provide a true understanding or global benefits. Digital technology in specific fields has dramatically improved the quality of care provided to patients. Integrating the different technologies has allowed for evolution of new workflows and increased our ability to treat complex cases with ease and predictability.
The highest levels of dental care are achieved by collaboration. This site aims to bring together individuals and organizations that are committed to excellence in the field of digital technology and are open to collaborative efforts to further advance our profession. A panel of leaders in the field will continually add training and educational material and we will seek to collaborate with other exceptional organizations that offer high quality content. Multi-disciplinary training and education teams will be created and course offerings will be available throughout the US at partner facilities, dental offices and dental laboratories.
Membership will be offered in three categories: Member, Contributor, and Sponsor. Members are encouraged to share their clinical experience in the forum, highlighting unique perspectives through case reports or short videos that explain various techniques.
Become a member today and participate in the digital dentistry revolution.
For individuals at the forefront of digital dentistry, it is common to feel the need to share ones knowledge and expertise with others. Some individuals focus on mastery at a specific step in the digital dentistry arena while others provide insight into the bigger picture.
Creation of training and educational facilities as well as producing online content are other components of organic growth. Individuals or small groups are continually following this path. If everyone that has the same passion can come together, share their knowledge and collaborate, even greater things can be achieved.
