Decoding Digital technology for the analogue dental profession. By Simon Ashworth
3 presentations Thursday 8 September, Thursday 27 October and Thursday 10 November 7pm. Thank you to Kulzer.
In this 3 part series we break down the dental professional’s digital transition.
- Part 1 Current architecture of digital for the professional that can really offer a controlled pathway into this emerging technology.
- Entry level systems, capture options and design options.
- Part 2 Insight into manufacturing methods pros and cons and a demonstration of additive manufacturing.
- Part 3 The relationship between the dental health professional, the patient and their treatment planning.
This presentation examines how after 40 years in the dental profession the presenter, Mr Simon Ashworth, took a leap of faith and put down the wax knife in favour of the computer mouse.
Simon will detail the business acumen foundation that the digital transformation is built upon. By putting forward his key strategies required to avoid the roadblocks that he encountered during his journey, Simon will share what the individual and business can expect in a digital transformation.
Using the accumulation of traditional data and analysis we create a dental appliance and examine the strengths of current artificial intelligent, appliance production systems, and where CAD CAM is replaced by CAE (computer aided engineering).
Simon demonstrates powerful possibilities as he presents the use of technology as an aid alongside human influences such as creativity, imagination, intuition and ethics.
The presentation is designed to increase curiosity and confidence, for attendees to make the decision that technology and dental professionals can exist side by side today and in the future meeting the demands of our connected world.
Make informed decisions, minimise disruption and embrace a world of endless possibilities.
