Dental 3D Printing From A to Z: The Perfect Way to Get Started

Formlabs Dental Academy is launching “Dental 3D Printing from A to Z". This online course is ideal for dental professionals who are new to 3D printing. During the course, we will provide comprehensive training on technology basics, materials, and dental applications while discussing the benefits of this technology in digital dentistry and from an ROI perspective. 

Dr. Elisa Praderi, Clinical Protocols & KOL Manager, and Bernhard von Oppeln-Bronikowaski, MDT and Dental Solutions Engineer, experts in dental 3D printing will be your course teachers. The training will be divided into three 2-hour sessions and cover the following topics:

  • Session 1: 

    • Introduction to 3D printing

    • Digital dentistry workflows with 3D printing

  • Session 2: 

    • Deep-dive into PreForm

    • Orthodontic applications using 3D printing

  • Session 3: 

    • Restorative applications using 3D printing

    • Dental lab applications using 3D printing

In the first session, we will discuss the basics of 3D printing for dentistry and introduce you to the stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing technology, how it compares with other manufacturing processes, how it can be incorporated with other steps of the digital workflow, as well as the decision-making process for selecting the right materials and best practices for optimal results.

In the second session, we will deep dive into our nesting software PreForm, and the different options you have for 3D printing based on specific needs. We will also cover applications that can benefit from 3D printing in orthodontics.

The last session will focus on the restorative and dental lab areas and applications that can benefit from this technology. The different materials for end-use or indirect appliance fabrication will be covered as well as the combination of hybrid workflows
