  • Discuss the value of 2D simulations and facial scans in the treatment planning process

  • Master free software (Blue Sky Plan and Meshmixer) that can be used for designing guides and prosthetics entirely in-house

  • Understand the various full arch prosthetic options from fixed crown and bridge (FP1) to fixed hybrids and removable overdentures and how the approach will differ for each.

  • Learn staged approaches using serial extractions.

  • Understand the various options for bone segmentation.

  • Learn how to make complex full arch guides using both a swappable and a stackable approach

  • Review options for fabricating guides through printing and milling as well as when it makes sense to outsource the fabrication.

  • Gain an understanding of immediate load protocols and ways to reduce risks and complications.

  • Hands-on exercises designing multiple types of full arch guides including soft tissue-supported, bone-supported, and stackable guides
