An evening with Dr. Craig Parker discussing the Future of Digital Dentistry20 October 2015 Categories: Uncategorized
The evening was very aptly named The future of Digital Dentistry which covered “Tomorrows World Today in Dentistry’
The event was hosted by the BDA in the appropriate an equally futuristic venue, The Sky Lounge, 13th floor, Hilton Hotel, Leeds and delivered by the experienced and knowledgeable Dr. Craig Parker (BChD MFGDP(UK) DPDS PG cert)
Craig gave a visionary lecture on how he sees the future of Dentistry and the technological advancements, here and now, those just around the corner and what to expect in the medium term. He talked through the abilities of new technologies and game changers such as Intra-Oral cameras which are, even now replacing traditional impression taking methods, low dose 3D X-Ray or CBCT giving full insight into the hard and soft tissues. Looking at both 3D planning & 3D printing allowing both virtual and physical prototypes of proposed dental reconstructions.
He continued to give his valued opinions on the correlation of all these systems and how they will ensure more accurate and predictable dentistry, which in turn will improve the patients experience and create a ‘better, faster and more cost efficient’ outcome.
We at Ambridge Ceramics are already embracing the new advancements discussed and work closely with many of the technologies in Craig’s lecture, it was great to hear his opinions on the affect these will have on Dentistry as a whole.
The evening was well hosted, in a great location, very informative and was well worth attending.
