Devices and concepts that we take for granted as we go about our day, we science fiction just a generation ago. Technologies such as digital cameras, GPS, optical scanning, computer design and computer manufacturing touch our lives every day. The way your dentist delivers care to you today has also been affected. We can deliver care with more precision, quality and speed better than ever before. We will discuss a few of the amazing industrial and medical technologies that are revolutionizing the profession of dentistry today.

Topics to be covered:
