After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
-Create a patient’s database efficiently and effortlessly

Abstract

Intraoral scanners have been around for quite some time. These valuable tools were first designed to facilitate the impression process for both dental practitioners and patients. Advancements in technology have increased the applications of intraoral scanning over time. Dr. Frederic Poirier uses digital scanning on almost every one of his patients to increase case acceptance and improve diagnostics. Learning about new technological developments in intraoral scanning will allow clinicians to better understand the multitude of benefits offered from these devices.
