Title: The Evolution of digital dentistry


Digital Technologies have changed the landscape for organizations, companies and exchange of ideas around the globe and also in healthcare. Digital Dentistry has made a mark on the way dental care is provided by simplifying the communication among dentists, dental technicians and patients. An array of
companies have developed hardware and software that allow the dentist to increase their precision from intraoral scanners to robotic assisted surgeries. As the dental needs of patient’s increase the amount of restorations available to dentists is rapidly increasing. Currently Digital Dentistry can provide an array of options to patients, such as invisible aligners, complete dentures, one day crowns, digital surgical guides for implant placement and more recently robotic assisted surgeries for sinus lifts, third molar extractions and rapid tooth movements for orthodontics. Digital Dentistry also come with educational challenges as the technology moves at a faster pace those educating the future dentist need to stay up to date with the advances. We at Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine became the first US Dental School to become digital and continue to spearhead the progress in dental education. The presentation will explain the path that BUGSDM has
taken to be where we are today.
