The advent of technologies such as practice management software, 2D and 3D imaging, the internet and Cloud based computing, intraoral scanning, digital orthodontics (both aligner therapy and robotically bent archwires), 3D printing, and HIPPA regulations has transformed the conventional orthodontic practice from 25 years ago into a technology driven business. As a result, the foundation for creating an efficient digital workflow is critical in ensuring the success of the 21st century digital orthodontic practice. In his lecture Dr. Lin will discuss the digital workflow systems which have been established in his 3 practices for a truly paperless, impression free, and plasterless practice.
Give a brief overview of digital technologies.
Discuss the impact these digital technologies make in management and tracking of patients as well as their impact on patient care.
Review digital workflow systems for efficient management of these digital technologies.
