Stars of Dentistry Online – Christian Coachman: Virtual lab, the future, now!

Stars of Dentistry is back! We’re publishing some of our past Stars of Dentistry lectures on Dentistry Online, completely free.

To kick start the Stars of Dentistry Online series, we look back at Christian Coachman and his lecture ‘Virtual lab: the future now! The complete digital workflow for interdisciplinary aesthetic dentistry’.

You can see the complete lecture below.

The dental laboratory of the future will go way beyond fabricating just restorations and appliances. It will also become the starting point of any interdisciplinary treatment plan. Dental labs will therefore become the key partner for increasing case acceptance. They will consequently utilise softwares to transform our restorative experience into something much more efficient, predictable and beautiful.

Aims, objectives and outcomes

  • Integrating 2D smile design projects into interdisciplinary 3D softwares
  • Utilising 3D softwares for better treatment planning decisions
  • Aesthetic anterior monolithic CAD/CAM restoration with the Digital Skyn Concept. Beauty without wax-ups and layering.
