About the Speaker: Dr. Schmitt is the President and Founder of Voxelogix. He is the former Chairman of the Department of Prosthodontics at Wilford Hall USAF Medical Center, the largest Department of Defense hospital, and he served as Consultant to the Surgeon General of the Air Force. He spent the past seven years in private practice developing Voxelogix's digitally integrated full arch restoration protocol. He has nearly 30 years of clinical and teaching experience and is a nationally recognized pioneer in digitally assisted restorative dental treatment. Dr Schmitt formerly served as the Director of the Medical Group for Rapid Technologies in the Society of Manufacturing Engineers and is a highly sought speaker at both manufacturing and dental conferences.

About the Presentation: Digital imaging, layered manufacturing and numerical control (NC) milling are creating a new virtual world of treatment for dentists. Almost all aspects of a patient's treatment can be planned virtually before any treatment begins. This means that all members of the treatment team can be involved in a meaningful way. New cone beam computed tomography (CT) imaging systems are simple to use, less expensive than conventional medical CT, and require as little as 20-40 seconds to complete a scan of a patient's head. These scanners also expose patients to much less radiation. Other scanning systems that do not use radiation are also becoming common in the dental clinic and laboratory. Joining these tools together in a meaningful diagnostic, treatment planning and manufacturing process improves outcomes, reduces cost and ensures quality.
