39-06 Digital Dentistry Update

From the desk of
Dr. Sabiha Bunek, Editor-in-Chief

Digital dentistry has evolved significantly over the last decade, increasing the effectiveness and capabilities of dental procedures and outcomes. Digital technologies not only change the workflow for the clinician but increase the patient experience as well. In fact, more and more patients expect to see digital equipment in your office due to what they see their friends or family share on social media. For the past 15 years I’ve been lecturing on digital dentistry, and while much has changed, many things have not. Like many clinicians, I still find use for impression material. I have a few digital scanners, but I do not plan on milling in-office as I defer that to my lab. 3D printing is an area of great interest, and I’m still investigating a potential future purchase. You’ll find in this issue that I’m not alone. Many of my colleagues have incorporated scanning, milling, and 3D printing in their practices. In this issue you will also hear about one of our Clinical Consultants, Dr. Matthew Miller’s journey in digital dentistry. As always, we thank you for reading, and we welcome you to reach out to us with any questions at , or to me personally at
