    • Sold the practice due to health issues
  • Overview of where the digital workflow is and where it’s going
    • Digital isn’t new but it is finally accessible
    • The digital space is not a cost impediment
    • Example: Practice Clear Liner Ortho for under $300 a case with a $5k 3d printer
  • Pros and Cons for 3D Printers
    • Moonray
      • Quality printer
      • Plays nice with more materials
      • Simple printer
    • Formlabs
      • Quality printer
      • Closed approach on what materials they will develop profiles for
    • Recommended Digital Printer: Moonray
      • Not because of accuracy but because of materials
      • Speed of print
      • Multi-functional
    • Scanner used to capture information: Shining 3D DSEX Scanner
      • Scans in 5 minutes
    • PVS vs Digital Scanning
      • PVS is preferred, cost is better, builds experience, is less demanding and easier
      • Digital Scanning makes you a better Dentist
    • Discovery of Scanning Impressions
      • Relatively new 2-3 years ago
    • Digitizing workflow and improving accuracy
      • Never send a physical impression to lab
      • Take a physical impression then scan
      • Send STL file to Lab Pronto (Uber for Dentistry)
      • Lab will send back a digital crown made from file
      • Do not need a printer for this process unless you want to print a model to cross-check
    • Recommend Digital Wax ups on everyone because it’s valuable
      • Hire 1 employee that only makes digital wax ups
    • DSD vs Digital Wax Up
      • DSD offers a higher level of service
      • DSD is more expensive
    • Denture Technology
      • One of the most important things a new Dentist should learn
      • Insurance reimbursement for Dentures is very poor yet the lab bill is the highest
      • Dentures are time consuming
      • Digital dentures do not solve these issues
      • Digital dentures are more expensive, does not cut down on time, does not cut down on appointments
      • Blue Sky Plan helps solve these issues with free software, Lab Pronto, printers & scanners
    • Technology is ready to deploy in dentures. A few options include:
      • Print teeth in white and print base in pink then bond together
      • Monolithic denture
      • MFH is a fav
      • Print base, place teeth, then let lab process
