*New* Prosthodontics Series

The integration of contemporary digital workflows can be revolutionary in a dental practice by providing much needed support, organization, and insight. But in the busy dental world, many times these digital workflows--meant to assist and make our lives better--cause us confusion. It is not uncommon to hear questions like:

     "Which scanner? Which software? Which material? And how do I do it?"

To help our colleagues in answering such questions, and ease the integration of contemporary treatment planning concepts and digital workflows into their offices, we are pleased to invite you to our 2022 Prosthodontics Course Series.

This exciting series is a unique, in-person continuing education program designed to empower and inspire confidence in various topics related to contemporary treatment planning, digital prosthodontics, and implant dentistry.  Whether you sign up for an individual course or for the whole series, all courses start with incorporating fundamentals, then dive into research, evidence, and proven clinical techniques to support our participants in building digitally-driven workflows to yield better outcomes in their practice.

A 20% discount is available for attending the entire program and a 10% discount is available for ITI fellows, TUSDM Alumni, TUSDM faculty, RDH, and Dental assistants/ technicians. 

We hope to see you on campus!
