"The ultimate coaching session" Dr Christian Coachman headlines Invisalign Digital Smile Design Conference
On Friday 9th March 2018 dentists will gain exclusive access to Dr Christian Coachman, the Founder of the Digital Smile Design (DSD) concept, who will be addressing a conference about a digital breakthrough in interdisciplinary dentistry. This follows a recent announcement of a ‘facially driven’ treatment planning collaboration between Align Technology and Digital Smile Design which conjoins Invisalign clear aligner therapy with Smile Design Protocols.
The organisers say: "The agenda for A Digital Breakthrough Interdisciplinary Dentistry has been curated to help dentists transition through holistic, digital and emotional dentistry, and will also address the interdisciplinary digital workflow. The intention of the speakers is to advise dentists how to integrate Invisalign with restorative techniques more easily thanks to a streamlined workflow.
"The ultimate aim will be to adopt a less invasive approach which encourages the preservation of more tooth structure, and ultimately provide an improved patient outcome and experience."
"Providing dentists the ability to combine DSD's unique treatment and patient communications tools with Invisalign treatment planning is ideal in designing beautiful smiles," according to Digital Smile Design Founder, Dr. Christian Coachman.
He adds "This collaboration will enable a systematic digital approach for diagnosis, communication, and treatment planning that is in line with the preferred facial balance. For us it is a great honour to do this collaboration with the best company on the market when it comes to aligners".
The Digital Smile Design concept was developed from protocols honed to improve the facial analysis, smile design integration, interdisciplinary communication and most of all to ensure that the patient’s new smile adds real value to their quality of life. Dr Coachman will be joined by speakers Drs Lance Knight, Craig Parker and Elaine Halley, who are leading exponents of this revelatory treatment model.
Dr Christian Coachman considers digital technology as the trend to break many of the established principles of the dental profession. He believes all companies should be focusing on the patient experience, and Align Technology is clearly a pioneer in putting patients at the heart of the treatment and creating strategies to improve their experience.
The conference will detail the Digital Smile Design and Invisalign workflow, highlight how the iTero Element digital scanner can benefit dentists and patients when integrated into the restorative workflow, present marketing and management tools to help dentists outperform their competition, and look at the unique patient journey with a live patient demonstration.
The conference takes place on Friday 9th March 2018 in central London at Landing Forty-Two, 122 Leadenhall Street, London EC3V 4AB. There is a £350 registration fee and places are limited, so dentists wishing to reserve a place should contact their local Invisalign Territory Manager.
