Webinar: A Fly on the Wall: An In-Depth Behind the Scenes Look at a Successful Relationship Between a Dental Laboratory Technician and Dentist

Noon–2:00pm • 2 CEU, Core • Sponsored by GC America

This course is a part of our Super CE – Week of Webinars event. The courses will all be in a webinar format and the pricing of the course will depend on how many courses you sign up for.

Lines of communication between the dental laboratory technician and the dentists they work with are frequently marked by antagonism and derision. More so than the damage to the fragile egos of these professionals are the potential untoward negative ramifications to the patients being treated.
This course aims to elucidate the inner workings of an efficacious and amicable collaboration between colleagues endeavoring to promote and maintain the oral health of others. Learning Objectives:

  • Review the roadblocks and hurdles that currently exist between the clinician and technician that may hinder the successful treatment of each patient
  • Determine the chairside/benchtop communication protocols and current materials available to the ceramist and dental professional that can be utilized in the restoration of fixed, implant, and removable restorative treatment plans that will ensure the highest quality final product at delivery.
  • Develop systems of communication between the laboratory and the clinic to facilitate all aspects of final impressions, shade analysis, and treatment planning
  • Apply new concepts and techniques with the dental clinic and laboratory
