The course, mainly practical, has as main objective to allow the participant to calibrate correctly the equipment, understand the techniques, the protocol, and the management of the files obtained in order to complete in a very short time a technically correct and emotional photographic and video documentation.

 

Immediately after the course, participants, will be able to organize a nice presentation (utilizing Keynote or Powerpoint) that could be used to communicate with the patient the esthetic and clinical issues, communicate with the members of the team and, for those who may be interested, to prepare a nice presentation for lectures or courses.

 

In addition, the sequence and the techniques for the pictures required for the Digital Smile Design (DSD) will be described in details.

 

For these reasons the course is designed for all the colleagues that are looking for improvement.

Clinical Pictures and videos help to improve many aspects of our profession and have many advantages:

 

1. We can learn from pictures and videos!

 

2. Pictures and videos are the best clinical chart!

 

3. Pictures and videos optimize the communication with the patient, consequently, treatment planning acceptance will increase.

 

4. The "digital chart" described during the course will simplify the communication with all the members of the team leaving less room for misunderstandings and will improve the outcome.

 

5. From digital pictures and videos we can emphasize details that are not visible clinically.

After having organized many sessions of DSD Courses, one of the main issue that prevented the application of the DSD protocol in the everyday clinical practice is the difficulty that some participants encountered in applying what they have learned during the DSD theoretical courses. This is why we have organized the "DSD Prep" course.

 

This Theoretical-Practical Course will describe all the steps necessary to be able to perfom easly the whole DSD sequence with Keynote or Power Point.

 

One of the main advantages of this course is the limited number of participants (maximum 12) that allow a one-to-one type of relationship.

 

If you have already taken some DSD Courses, this is a great occasion to apply practically the concepts that you have learned.

 

If you have never taken any DSD Courses and this is your intention, this course is great to be introduced to the tools that will not be covered during the theoretical courses due to the big number of participants that attend those lectures.

This course will introduce to DIGITAL SMILE DESIGN, a modern approach to DiagnosisCommunication and to Treatment Planning.

The DSD Concept course is the heart of the DIGITAL SMILE DESIGN Protocol.

 

Andrea has organized a whole new format of DSD Concept Course... the course is limited to 12 participants in order to establish a one-to-one learning experience!

 

There are 2 main reasons to take Andrea's Course:

 

1. "I have never taken a DSD Course and I want to be introduced to it! Then I will apply to the DSD World Tour by Christian Coachman or any other advanced DSD courses."

 

If your intention is to start from the beginning and you want to be introduced to the concepts from the basics. This course will allow you to apply all the steps on your computer. You will understand how to use the tools available on your computer on a everyday basis. The objective of this course is to make you confident with the use of your digital equipment. Only very small courses can allow this.

 

2. "I have taken a theoretical course (such as DSD World Tour) and I cannot apply the concepts as I would like!"

 

This course is a great occasion to refresh some of the theoretical concepts, but mainly it is organized to be practical and to learn the tools and the tricks in order to be able to use the DSD in an everyday basis. Only a one-to-one course can provide enough support to learn the details of this protocol.

 

It is a 2 days theoretical/practical/demostrative course, very intense, where Andrea presents the concept and the protocol.

DSD without correctly aligned photos will not provide precise measurements!

 

Immediately after the course, participants, will be able to organize a nice presentation (utilizing Keynote 6 or Powerpoint) that could be used to communicate with the patient the esthetic and clinical issues, communicate with the members of the team and, for those who may be interested, to prepare a nice presentation for lectures or courses.

9/11/2015


After having organized many DSD Courses and having met more than 700 participants and more than 65 participants per course, we have decided to change the DSD course organization.

 

Why?

 

We analized the following:

 

1. Many participants, enthusiastic during the course, once finished did not applied the DSD has much they would have liked. This, most likely, is due to the fact that they did not have the chance to apply in practice during the course what they were learning.

 

2. We realized that if the number of particpants would have been smaller, the efficacy of the course could have been higher.

 

Andrea has organized a whole new format of his DSD Course, mostly practical, limited to 12 participants in order to establish a one-to-one learning experience!

 

This allows to have a better learning outcome and a one-to-one relationship between Andrea and the participant.

 

There are 2 main reasons to take Andrea's Course:

 

1. "I have never taken a DSD Course and I want to be introduced to it!
