Thought leaders, manufacturers, and dental professionals from around the world will come together this fall to participate in the first-ever symposium focused on the latest advancements in the digital production of removable prosthetics. Held September 23-24 at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, the day-and-a-half international symposium, Digital Dentures: How to Make an Educated Decision, hosted by AvaDent Digital Dental Solutions, promises to deliver a unique business leadership opportunity to learn first-hand the latest digital denture solutions from new technologies and material advancements to business-related issues.
