Advanced Digital Photography and Digital Asset Management

(Now that I've taken all these photos, what do I do with them?)

Presented by: Steven H. Goldstein, DDS


Course Description / Learning Objectives

This presentation will review a professional digital photographic workflow from image capture to output, discussing the many required details to make it all work. Advanced camera settings required to get the most from your digital SLR camera will be discussed.

The importance of how to utilize cases and images in treatment planning and presentation to the patient will be covered. 

Color management between the dental office and dental laboratory is paramount and a  professional color management system will be illustrated.

The management and handling of digital images (called assets) after they are captured in camera will be reviewed. Images need to be downloaded, organized, and shared. Attendees will be shown how this is done and quickly and efficiently. Many timesaving tips and tricks will be shown in this course.

Participants will learn:

Introduction to CAD/CAM and Digital Dentistry - scanning, milling, impression taking

Presented by: Dr. Joseph Carpentieri


Course Description / Learning Objectives

CAD/CAM and digital dentistry has revolutionized the practice of clinical dentistry and significantly changed “what we do and how we do it”.  This presentation will provide a concise overview of this fascinating and important topic.  Through a literature-based approach, the benefits and limitations of these technologies and materials will be discussed.  Evidence-supported rationale for utilization of CAD/CAM abutments and full arch CNC frameworks (with review of virtual design process) will be presented. Esthetic guidelines associated with abutment material choice will be reviewed and controversies associated with the zirconia option will be discussed.


Participants will learn:
- scanning, milling and impression taking techniques
- how scanners work and how to choose a scanner
- how use of these technologies can benefit both the patient and the practice
