This INTENSIVE five-day course provides the tools necessary for you to
orthodontists interested in the digital world with different levels of computer training
can translate daily practice carried out in an analogue way into a digital system. We design
a gradual learning curve from more familiar elements to levels of
more advanced knowledge, seeking that at the end of the course there are skills that
provide tools to take advantage of current technological advances.
The main objective of the course is to reduce the barriers to access to digital tools
available today to the clinician and understand how they significantly improve
our workflow. This will be achieved through the use of accessible software and requirements
hardware minimums.

Specific objectives:

1.- Know the digitalization of diagnosis, planning and manufacturing in orthodontics
2.- Learn to standardize dental photography to apply it in the diagnosis and later
digital treatment
3.- Learn to extract and organize information from DICOM files for 3D images
4.- Learn to process digital dental models to obtain diagnostic information.
5.- Learn to use simple and free software to plan the treatment of
6.- Learn to design orthodontic appliances, IBT, splints and any other appliance in a
simple/free software.
7.- Learn about Digital Manufacturing and be able to produce orthodontic appliances
