Dr. Christian Coachman

Transferring patient's information in the digital workflow

Friday, September 20th, 2013
Session 2: 14:30-15:00
Dr. Christian Coachman


The goal is to design a smile that fits the patients functional, esthetic and emotional needs by improving the team communication and creating a real interdisciplinary treatment plan. Also increasing case acceptance is paramount by utilizing visual communication, balancing the patients expectation and increasing motivation. Modern techniques and materials can be useless if the final outcome doesn’t achieve or exceed the patient's esthetic desires.
Emphasis will be given to the utilization of digital tools to enhance and facilitate the Dentist/Technician interaction and communication with the patient.
