Perspectives on digital dentistry: impact on you, your team and your patients

Delegates will gain insight from two different perspectives on how digital technology can enhance patient workflows, increase revenue and improve practice efficiency.  Hear how the combined use of scanners and clear aligners has changed the practice revenue profile.

Learning outcomes

Join Dan and Wayne in conversation as they share experiences and opinions about their digital journeys, focussed on three broad topics:
  • Diving into digital
    • Compare and contrast the perspectives of a non-digital dentist entering the digital space with one who has 10 years of scanning experience
    • Hear about what this has meant for their practices
  • Impacting practice revenue
    • Understand how revenue is impacted by firmly establishing effective workflows that reinforce your digital practice
    • Appreciate why the whole workflow is at the core of patient centred care
    • See how treatment options can be enhanced by ethical upselling
  • Engaging and motivating your team
    • Pick up hints and tips about motivation and inclusion
    • Examine how upskilling builds confidence
    • Hear about the benefits of good communication
    • Learn how these skills combine to drive enhanced team care of the patient.
