The unique two-day seminar features concurrent sessions from a nationally recognized lineup of dentists and presenters who will cover a full spectrum of 3D and cone beam imaging topics. On the second day of the summit, attendees will view a live implant case.

On Saturday, Nov. 16th four concurrent sessions will offer attendees a variety of challenging yet essential education opportunities for the growing implant practices. Dr. Dale Miles will present “A Case of Mistaken Identify: Can I Really Miss Pathology in My Cone Beam Scan?”

Miles will present the case for reviewing all the slice data in our scans and present information on reducing your liability and risk, as well as demonstrate a simple, efficient software tool for producing a radiograph report.

Lee Culp will give “The Harmony of Anterior Function and Aesthetics with Digital Dentistry.” Experienced E4D operators will want to attend this session to gain a deeper understanding of the complex relationship between tooth form and function and how they interact to create the aesthetics of natural dentition.

Culp will help attendees:

· Prepare designs for guaranteed CAD/CAM success

· Perform the steps for simple shade and block selection

· Take advantage of CULP classifications for anterior tooth shape

In “Cone Beam CT for the General Practitioner,” Dr. David Edlund will share his case studies to show how he has used Cone Beam CT to improve his patient’s care, as well as his practice. Edlund will demonstrate how using this technology is affordable and how to incorporate it into your practice. His overview will provide axial, coronal and sagittal views in relation to the composite 3D view.

Dr. Bryan Couch and Sherri White will give a preview of how CAD/CAM technologies work in “CAD/CAM Technology for Your Office, How It Works.”

The duo will ensure attendees:

· Learn how to capture an image and customize a virtual restoration

· How to characterize al ceramic restoration for aesthetic results

· The indication and material options for clinical CAD/CAM systems, and more

The summit culminates on Sunday, November 17th with a live patient session “Functional Implant Restorations Using CAD CAM and Cone Beam.” The session focuses on the planning, placement and restoration of an implant using E4D CAD Cam and Planmeca ProMax integration. Dentists attending will learn how to integrate these two technologies to create functional implant restorations. Following the live presentation, coaching will be available for dentists on the different technologies.

Continuing education credits are available for attendees.
