Artistry and Technology for our Restorative Options

Friday, May 18, 2018, 1:00 – 2:00pm

Our goals for the future are to provide esthetic yet functional restorative options to support the physical and financial need of our patients. In today’s evolving market place, the importance of utilizing technology is paramount to success but this evolution has somewhat hurt the dental market by losing some of the artistic process. Master Dental Technician, Peter Pizzi explains how the technician’s role is much more demanding today and requires a greater understanding of the materials, technologies, and diagnostic communication process. Successful technicians will not just be a piece worker in the process, but utilize both artistry and technology to achieve better results.

What you’ll learn:

  •  How to utilize both artistry and technology to achieve better results
  •  About the materials, technologies, and the diagnostic communication process
  •  How implant restorative and larger case options will be a big part of our future
