- Communication tools between dental laboratory and dental practice for improved outcomes of prosthetic restorations
- Prosthetics in focus - for the entire dental team. General session.
- Nobel Biocare New York Global Symposium 2016
When working with complex cases is it very important to operate as one team. Only when all professionals are working towards the same goal and focused on the patient can the optimal treatment results be achieved.
The speakers will show you cases and share their thoughts about when there is an extra need for tight team work and discuss the importance of this. The lecture will also cover the importance of a good design of the prosthetic constructions, when and why to choose different kind of reconstructions and when simple communication tools can help you get a better dialogue and in the end simplify and optimize our treatments, all for the benefit of the patient.
