Advances in Dental Technology
Live, Interactive Webcast Continuing Education Course - 3 Hours Credit

This course is designed to introduce the dentist to some of the new advances in dental technology that can enable a more efficient workflow in dentistry. The future of dentistry is digital, and has become an essential component in many practices - improving clinical outcomes, patient comfort, and reducing the time and expense of restorations of implants.
