Course Description (Lecture Style Webinar):

The next frontier of in-office appliance design and printing is here. No longer are 3D printers simply a “hobby”, now we have the ability to design and fabricate many different appliances and even restorations for our patients. Much like the transition to CAD/CAM milled restorations, 3D printing has multiple options and entry points. This course will provide an overview of what’s possible, a paradigm for current and future services, and a look at what is coming soon right around the corner.
