- Review common intraoral scanning applications.
- Learn how to select the right intraoral scanner for your practice.
Lynne Thomas, DDS, is a doctoral graduate from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. She practices with her husband, a German-trained dentist, in San Diego. They implemented CAD/CAM technology in 2004 when they desired to elevate the care they were providing for their patients. They have been using this technology daily since. From single crowns to full-mouth rehabilitations, all of their outcomes are facilitated by digital technology.
