Outcomes of the Course

Christian Coachman will introduce you to the DSD (Digital Smile Design) concept through lectures and a live patient demonstration of the Smile Design process, team communication protocol and the Emotional Dentistry approach by utilizing a unique digital workflow.

The goal is to demonstrate how to design a smile that fits the patients functional, esthetic and emotional needs by improving the team communication and creating a real interdisciplinary treatment plan.

Treatment planning to a full mouth rehabilitation is amazingly challenging. Many options and steps must be coordinated and controlled to achieve a successful outcome. Developing the Smile Design is just the starting point. The DSD Day is a 2-day program that will present the Digital Smile Design, the Digital Interdisciplinary Workflow and the Emotional Dentistry concepts by the lecturer.


The main objectives of this course are to show dentists:

  • How to improve the Smile Design process and transform the patients into co-authors of their own, new smiles.
  • How to develop a communication protocol that facilitates real and daily Interdisciplinary Dentistry.
  • How to increase the perceived value of a dental treatment and consequently, increase case acceptance through the Emotional Dentistry approach.
  • How to integrate technology to generate efficient and predictable clinical procedures through a digital design workflow that will connect the 2D drawings of DSD to 3D software systems (ie, CAD/CAM, 3D orthodontics, and guided surgery).
