8.30 - 9.15 • Session 1

3D Printing in My Practice

Avid 3D printing enthusiast Dr Andrew Ip has been talking up this new technology for years and now he shares how he uses 3D printing daily in his general practice, including types of appliances made and their applications, workflows used, allocation of designing and printing roles within your team and the efficiencies gained.

9.15 - 10.00 • Session 2

3D Printing for Dentistry Demystified

There is no doubt 3D printing will have far reaching benefits and challenges for the entire dental team. This lecture will demystify 3D printing, explain the different technologies suitable for dentistry, explain real world applications and materials available now to dentistry both lab side and chairside and discuss future ongoing development. Various printers will be also discussed and their pros and cons and suitability for dental applications.

10.00 - 10.30 • Morning Tea

10.30 - 11.15 • Session 3

  • ,

Digital Smile Design

In-house or out-sourced smile design from full digital records (IOS, Photos, Facial scan). We will discuss and live demo the entire process - smile design, printing of models and temps. John Scollo will discuss the lab/technical side of the process.

11.15 - 12.00 • Session 4

The state-of-the-art in Digital Dentures

The idea of manufacturing digital full and partial dentures using additive or subtractive methods is the current "holy grail" of digital dentistry. This session will look at the various approaches being taken to 3D print dentures and what is around the corner.

12.00 - 13.30 • Lunch and Toy Time

13.30 - 14.15 • Session 5

Optimising your practice to produce aligners in-house

Creating clear aligners in your dental practice may sound like a great idea, but how does it work in reality. The session details a WA general dentists journey to establish the necessary systems and workflows to create a successful aligner-centric practice. More details to follow.

14.15 - 15.00 • Session 6

One Visit Aligners - Print Fast Aligner Models In Office

Making your own clear aligners can lead to a very lucrative business. The real bottleneck has been the time taken to produce the aligner models, however the latest printers and technologies have resolved this, making one visit aligners a reality. The Clear and Straight Aligner System is one example of a chairside aligner system whereby you can successfully make your own aligners and even deliver in one appointment. Each step of the process will be detailed and a preview of direct aligner printing (without models) will be discussed.

15.00 - 15.30 • Afternoon Tea

15.30 - 16.15 • Session 7

Printing Class IIa appliances in-house

Intraoral scanners and optimised workflows have opened new doors for in-house manufacturing in dental practices. Design in-house - or outsource your designs - and using the speed and accuracy of 3D printing, you can have your patient-specific appliances ready in no-time, whether they be surgical guides, aligners, temporaries or even dentures and crowns.

This session will cover the options and benefits of in-house manufacturing of "Class IIa" appliances, giving you a clear understanding of the needs to start with 3D printing and the importance of proper post-processing.

16.15 - 17.00 • Session 8

Chairside guided implant to screw-retained temps

A comprehensive hands-on session of implant surgical guides and immediate screw-retained temps. From design to chairside printing with key steps for predictable outcomes.

Characterisation of 3D Printing Dental Resins

This presentation will discuss the principal properties of 3D printing resins which affect their accuracy, strength and performance in dental applications.

9.15 - 10.00 • Session 2

Additive vs Subtractive manufacturing - which is best and when

In the last few decades, subtractive "milling" has been the “gold” standard of dental manufacturing. Now, the latest technologies and materials are changing our ways of producing high quality products.

Additive manufacturing - like 3D printing - is offering a lot of benefits and allowing us to work faster and more efficiently and creating more advanced and aesthetic outcomes.

Future proof your lab and let the quality of your products convince your clients of the benefits of going fully digital.

10.00 - 10.30 • Morning Tea

10.30 - 11.15 • Session 3

3D Printing Advanced Masterclass

Printing dental models is actually easy, however more complex parts such as crowns, denture bases, splints and surgical guides are more challenging. There is nothing worse than a print failure and there are many factors that can affect this. This presentation will discuss accuracy, precision, layers, materials and methods of software manipulation and machine settings so you can optimise parts to get successful printing every time. Regardless of the printer you use or are thinking of purchasing, this is a not to be missed presentation.

11.15 - 12.00 • Session 4

The Top Ten 3D Printing Tips

Charlie Anderson is the founding Director of Monocure 3D. This Australian grown Resin Development and Manufacturing company has nearly 40 years of experience creating UV curing Polymers. Charlie has a long history working on material development and resin based 3D printers. His experience goes back to the first desktop SLAs and since then, has been fortunate to have printed with most of the DLP and MSLA offerings on the market today.

He will take you on an in-depth journey through his top ten 3D printing tips. These are based on what he has learnt by making the mistakes so you don’t have to. After working alongside major dental labs, Monocure 3D has launched a comprehensive dental resin range, including a TGA approved Surgical guide resin. Monocure 3D has over 60 resellers selling Australian made products locally and abroard.

12.00 - 13.30 • Lunch and Toy Time

13.30 - 14.15 • Session 5

Using and Maintaining a 3D printer - Real world Tips and Tricks

Modern 3D printers are easy to use, however a thorough understanding of their correct operation is imperative to avoid expensive pitfalls that can, in some cases, render a machine useless. This talk will discuss correct everyday routines for the use and maintenance of 3D printers to achieve great results every time and to prolong the lifespan of the machine.

14.15 - 15.00 • Session 6

There is more to 3D Printing than the printer

3D printers are important but they are not the only thing that is. In this talk we will discuss computers, software, auxiliary equipment, ventilation systems, creating a safe working environment and how to deal with common failures and faults. This talk is a must for anyone who wishes to streamline their workflow and wants to know how to fix common 3D Printing problems when they arise.

15.00 - 15.30 • Afternoon Tea

15.30 - 16.15 • Session 7

What's new with 3D Printing Dentures

Digital manufacturing has been adapted to most areas of dentistry, however removable prosthetics remains elusive, especially with 3D printing. Recent advances in techniques and materials bring us closer to the fully digital manufacture of full and partial dentures. This talk will discuss these advances, the techniques and the materials available now and their application for full and partial dentures. Also a preview into what’s on the horizon with 3D printed removable prosthetics that will leave you more than excited.

16.15 - 17.00 • Session 8
