New York University College of Dentistry


Teaching student doctors innovative CAD/CAM technology allows the student to develop critical thinking skills that integrate the clinical restorative procedures with the precision of graphic design via computer. A way to master this technological advancement is to give student doctors an opportunity to challenge themselves by doing multiple procedures in a single visit. Through self-assessment criteria the student can overcome challenges that may have existed before and take away a positive learning experience that can be applied in practice.
