8.30 - 9.15 • Session 1

Modern issues facing dental 3D printer users in Australia

3D printing is revolutionising the way we practice all aspects of dentistry, from implantology, orthodontics and prosthodontics. It is truly the next BIG thing. As hardware is constantly improving and new materials are being developed and released annually, it is an exciting time to be a digital dentist or dental technician.

However – did anyone stop to ask – how fast is too fast?

It is all fun and games – until it isn’t.

During this thought-provoking presentation, we will go through the contemporary and near-future issues facing current dental 3D printer users and start having the conversations that need to happen.

Research update from University of Otago

This session presents the findings of two relevant studies conducted by students at the University of Otago in New Zealand as follows:

Prolonged Post-washing in Ethanol Decreases Bond Strength of 3D printed Crown Materials

Presented by Zei Kagaoan

Zei will be presenting her honours research on the bond strength of 3D printed crowns and how its influenced by prolonged post-washing process.


Influence of temperature on the dimensional accuracy of 3D printed dental models

Presented by Samantha Khaw

Samantha will be presenting her honours research on the dimensional accuracy of 3D printed dental models and how they are influenced by temperature.

10.00 - 10.30 • Morning Tea

10.30 - 11.15 • Session 3

Facially driven dentistry using 3D printing

Using facial information, we can perform patient specific dentistry and communicate optimally between the clinical team and their patients, but even more important between clinic and lab. Deliver the most perfect diagnostic wax-up, temp/long term crowns or even the perfect 3D printed splint, every single time.

11.15 - 12.00 • Session 4

Verification and Validation aspects for Personalised Medical Devices

Since each personalised medical device is unique in its design and construction, ensuring the safety and performance of such devices present new challenges for all stakeholders. This presentation will further elaborate on the concepts of verification and validation in the context of medical devices, from design and manufacturing perspectives. The talk will specifically focus on patient-matched medical devices (PMMDs) and the concept of the specified design envelope associated with PMMDs. Parameters that must be considered within the specified design envelope and verification and validation aspects for devices designed and manufactured within the limits of the specified design envelope will be discussed.

12.00 - 13.30 • Lunch and Toy Time

13.30 - 14.15 • Session 5

DIY Aligners

As the inventor of the Truline Invisible Orthodontic system manufactured in the Sydney suburb of Mascot, Terry Whitty utilises state-of-the art 3D printing technology to produce clear aligners 24/7. But just as one-visit chairside DIY milling of crowns are becoming more popular, will one-visit DIY aligners also become practical? In this lecture, Terry will explore the digital aligner workflow and how improvements in hardware, software and materials are making DIY aligners a reality. In addition, direct printing of aligners will also be discussed.

14.15 - 15.00 • Session 6

Beyond the Bottom Line: Is automated 3D printing a viable solution for me?

Delve into the intricate economic landscape of automated 3D printing, exploring how advancements in technology are reshaping traditional manufacturing paradigms in dental labs. This session will examine the cost-benefit analysis of integrating automated 3D printing into production processes, shedding light on the potential return on investment and long-term financial gains. From reduced labour costs to increased production efficiency, the economic advantages that dental labs can leverage to stay competitive in an ever-evolving market will be fully investigated.
