Dr. Kifer and Alaina spent the weekend in Seattle at the prestigious KOIS Center learning about advancements in digital dentistry and optimizing the workflow to provide patients better care. We were able to practice with new digital scanners, use metrics in photography for facial analysis, and new programming to manipulate scans for 3D printing. We were able to discuss the benefits and limitations of the latest technology in 3D printing in the dental field.
The KOIS center always provides an unbiased review of dental products and how patients and staff can benefit from implementation in the practice. While we already use various digital dentistry techniques, we were able to focus on workflow and how to not sacrifice efficiency for accuracy that digital dentistry can provide. With continuing our education in new techniques and staying up to date on the latest advancements in dentistry we are able to provide our patients with the best care possible.
