The 3D Imaging Institute, sponsored by Imaging Sciences International, announces the latest addition to its curriculum of 3D dentistry events: the Live 3D Dentistry Forum. This highly engaging clinical event combines lectures, live scans, real-time surgical and treatment planning procedures.

The first Live 3D Dentistry Forum, co-sponsored by Henry Schein Dental, the U.S. dental
division of Henry Schein, Inc., will be held in Anaheim, Calif. at the Sybron Learning Center on
July 29-30. Each day will present an individual program that provides eight Continuing
Education credits per day. Day one is specifically geared toward Orthodontists with four highly
experienced speakers covering topics such as integration of 3D Cone Beam in the orthodontic
practice; imaging and dose control; diagnosis and treatment planning in 3D; and comparison of
2D and 3D radiography using case examples. The program culminates with a live i-CAT scan
and 3D orthodontic treatment planning session by a California board-certified orthodontist.

Day two’s courses focus on implants. The program covers such topics as the precision of CBCT
for implants; 3D technology integration of CBCT and CAD/CAM; responsible imaging; and a
live, single-placement implant procedure. Beginning with the initial examination and discussion
of the 3D scan, a California board-certified dentist will go over diagnostic findings, fully
demonstrate the planning phase using 3D imaging software, and then perform the placement of
the implant.

To gain the most benefits from these offerings, the attendees will be able to interact with the
clinicians performing any of the live procedures. “The Institute believes that this interaction will
allow doctors to achieve a true picture of how 3D technology can enhance the procedures they
perform each day,” states Nicole Serago, Coordinator of the Institute’s Live Dentistry events.

Adding to the Institute’s schedule of live events, this year’s 5th International Congress on 3D
Dental Imaging will be held in Dallas, Texas on November 4-5. The Congress has become the
industry standard on 3D education and this year is no exception. Along with courses spanning a
wide variety of topics suitable for all specialties, the Institute will offer live scans and real-time
planning.
