Clinical side of DSD

Beyond design, our work needs to have a clinical outcome. In this course we focus on what happens beyond design, and how we make sure the design we are planning will end up in the beautiful picture at the end of each case, all of these in step-by-step protocols.

DSD hands-on 

Dentcof was actively involved on developing and testing clincally DSD, as well as innovating various sides of it. From this experience, we have come to work in a clinically simplified version of DSD, that we believe is more efficient. You will learn how to document efficiently, at high-end quality. And you will learn to design, in a simple way, feasible and easy to translate into a treatment plan and actual treatment.
