The Future of CAD/CAM online broadcast will provide viewers with the information they need to create sustainable business growth while taking advantage of the opportunities that lie ahead in the dental laboratory industry. Because different laboratories have different needs, the broadcast will address several processing solutions to support a variety of laboratory goals. Matt Roberts, CDT, AAACD, will demonstrate world-class esthetics and ways to satisfy all of a laboratory's restorative needs by blending both traditional techniques with new digital solutions. Nelson Rego, CDT, AAACD, will describe "real life" CAD/CAM integration and new bottom-line results that will change viewers' outlooks toward the future of the dental laboratory industry. Lee Culp, CDT, AAACD, will complement these presentations by sharing his experiences and the application of digital technology to combine high-level esthetics with high-volume production. Dr. George Tysowsky, Vice President of Technology for Ivoclar Vivadent, will introduce the program with a discussion of Ivoclar Vivadent's vision for the future of CAD/CAM. His presentation will include a review of the respected ceramic materials and comprehensive processing systems developed by Ivoclar Vivadent, including IPS Empress® as the ultimate option for metal-free esthetics, IPS e.max® as the leading option for esthetics and strength, and Wieland Zenostar® Full-Contour Zirconia as the best option for even higher strength restorations.
