Introduction/Context/Diagnosis

CAD CAM dentistry is the future of dentistry working to improve design and efficacy in a dental office. This field is gaining momentum in corporate dentistry and private practices by creating same day dental prosthetics, crowns, veneers, bridges, and more. Same day chairside dentistry had never been feasible, until now. So, we ask ourselves, are dental students prepared and possess the skills to practice CAD CAM dentistry upon graduation? With the confidence level of students on the lower side of the spectrum, we have envisioned and created a CAD CAM Instructional Video for past, current, and future students. These videos will be used as an aide in the 1st year preclinical courses as well available on PacManual for students to refer to, after graduation.

Methods/Treatment Plan

Our team members included a cameraman, CAD CAM proficient instructors, and two 3rd year dental students who worked together to structure the project into 4 categories: Scanning, Designing, Milling, and Staining & Glazing.

Scanning Video: All team members were present in the polishing lab for the recording session of typodonts with a crown prepped tooth #19. Video recording of proper spraying technique and scanning were recorded in person and on the CEREC unit.

Designing Video: A screen mirroring application was downloaded onto the CEREC unit to internally record the design process. Microphones were used to record audio of instructors providing instructions and details on the design process.

Milling Video: All team members met in Simulation Lab to record the proper handling of the milling unit. Functions such as activation of unit, installation of ceramic block, and adjustment of sprue were also indicated.

Staining & Glazing Video: Lab technician specialist, Carlos Correa, worked closely to record a step by step guide for proper staining and glazing techniques. In addition, the proper handling of the oven and steam unit were incorporated.

Results/Outcome

Four high quality CAD CAM instructional videos with voiceovers were produced for Scanning, Design, Milling, Staining & Glazing.

Significance/Conclusions

Students at our institution have a course in CAD CAM for one quarter in which they practice using the Cerec machine. However, many students have claimed that after the course, they do not feel confident in practicing CAD CAM dentistry with their patients.

The creation of thesevideos are in hopes of providing students with the necessary tools and information to proceed in clinic and work with patients that are candidates for CAD CAM dentistry with confidence.

Comments/Acknowledgements

A special thanks to Dr. Michael Tiller, Dr. Bina Surti , and Michael Interrante for their support, mentorship, and help in making these videos possible.
