Attend the lecture at your preferred time slot.


The workshop titled "Efficiency increase by 30% when Scanning- the alternative for laboratories" will focus on addressing the current challenges faced by dental labs in terms of scanning technology and efficiency. The workshop aims to introduce participants to innovative approaches and tools that can streamline their digital workflow. Here's an outline of what the workshop will cover:

  1. Introduction to the Current State of Dental Scanning: This section will provide an overview of the existing scanning technology used in dental labs, highlighting the advantages and drawbacks.
  2. Challenges in Efficiency: Discuss the common issues related to the efficiency of current scanning methods, such as time-consuming processes and bulky equipment.
  3. Emerging Technologies: Explore cutting-edge scanning technologies that are smaller, faster, and more efficient. This may include handheld scanners, intraoral scanners, or new software solutions.
  4. Workflow Optimization: Provide insights into how dental labs can optimize their digital workflow, from scanning to model creation and final production. This could involve software recommendations and workflow best practices.
  5. Hands-On Demonstrations: If possible, offer hands-on demonstrations of new scanning technologies or software tools to give participants a practical understanding of their capabilities.
  6. Q&A Session: Allow participants to ask questions and seek clarification on any topics covered during the workshop.
  7. Networking Opportunities: Encourage participants to network and share their experiences, fostering collaboration within the dental lab community.

By the end of the workshop, attendees should have a better understanding of how to improve scanning efficiency in their dental labs, as well as the knowledge needed to explore and adopt innovative digital solutions.

Learning Objectives

The teaching objectives for the workshop on "Efficient Digital Solutions for Dental Labs" should be clearly defined to ensure that participants gain specific knowledge and skills. Here are some teaching objectives:
