New York University College of Dentistry


Part of the New York University esthetic dentistry curriculum for second year students is to introduce them to CAD/CAM technology. Students are taught how to prepare typodont teeth for the fabrication of inlays, onlays, and crowns both for CAD/CAM restorations and other conventional modalities. Imaging their preparations gives students a unique perspective and an opportunity to critique their preparation. This presentation describes an effort to improve student skills in a simulation lab through a team-based environment.

*Presented at 2013 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition
