This workshop is for digital assistants who are ready and eager to learn how to take digital scans and design and will include the A-to-Z of digital scanning. Items such as how to properly start and maintain the scanner, starting a case, scanning the patient, designing the case and even sending the case to the lab will be discussed. All participants will have the opportunity to not only scan on typodonts but also each other as well! Proper PPE will be provided. Not only will this allow the doctor to be more productive in the office, but it also will build a stronger relationship between the patient and the assistant. Attendance is limited to 15.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • perform the proper turning on and off the scanner, opening the proper program and entering the patient and case information.
  • understand the steps of scanning, designing, sending to mill, exporting to desktop for 3D printing, sending cases to labs through Sirona Connect and proper maintenance.
