LV2-Medit Scanning and Intro to Full Digital Workflow-Dallas, Texas

April 28, 2023 @ 9:00 am - April 29, 2023 @ 3:00 pm CDT

$400.00 – $2,500.00

Title-Level 2-(Medit) Scanning and Intro to Digital Workflow


  1. To understand the additional functionality of the digital scanner beyond simple scanning and provide insight into the procedures that can be incorporated into a practice by diving into the expanded functionality.
  2. To understand the basics of moving to an expanded or full digital workflow with the incorporation of in-house design and/or 3DPrinting or milling.

Teaching Methods:

Lecture instruction, guided self-scanning and design applications, and guided computer instruction to send models to printer

DAY 1 Morning Session:

  • Fundamentals of digital impressions
  • Learning the advantages of digital impressions over analog procedures, functioning independently of time and sequence and taking advantage of editable and additive features of intra-oral scans
  • Master single-unit impressions, complex cases and introduction to staging full arch cases
  • Managing errors that arise in imaging
  • Understand how to quickly capture and accurately render full arch cases
  • How and what to delegate to team members

Full arch scans for aligners and other appliance can be tedious and tricky with many intra-oral scanners. With sound principles and easy tutorials, you can image a full arch in very little time. The reliability map, unique to the Medit scanner, helps you stay on track and avoid both model distortion and inaccuracies.

Master Intra-Oral Scanning Under Our Supervision

Afternoon Session:

  • Digital implant restorations
  • Master the artificial intelligence implant suprastructure identification system to manage direct abutments and scanbodies
  • Design single units, copy cases, and custom abutments from scanbodies
learn how to manage full arch cases in simple segments

The following videos demonstrate how the Medit scanner uses artificial intelligence to readily identify a dental implant scanbody, a direct abutment, or even an impression abutment.  Even more impressive, you can import your own library of implant components or design and create your own scanbody.  This automatic identification of implant suprasctructures saves dozens of steps, whether you wish to fabricate restorations in the office or send it to the lab.

Medit's i500 Artifical Intelligence Identifies Implant Fixture
Medit’s artificial intelligence implant identification system spots a titanium scanbody on a freshly uncovered biomax implant. It didn’t matter how bloody the field was. The scanner readily identified the suprastructure, which is then transferred to the cad software (where the implant location and timing is correctly displayed) and the design of the custom abutment begins. This process is much more efficient and reduces potential errors. Another amazing feature is that the software can recognize impression abutment, tibases, and lots of other supra structures.

DAY 2 Morning Session: Digital Implantology

  • Introduction and mastery of Integration of Cone Beam data and STL data
  • Understanding the limitation of Cone Beam and STL integration
  • Integration and limitation of multiple Cone Beam data sets
  • Proper digitization of denture duplicates for stent fabrication
  • Multiple ways to design a surgical stent and how to choose appropriate design type
  • Proper case presentation techniques for patients
  • Single implant placement designs
  • Understand how to use Cone Beam scans and surgical stent
  • Treatment planning large cases
  • Appropriate case set ups and their ramifications during surgery
  • The multiple uses for chairside denture duplication
  • Chairside denture duplication and scan appliance fabrication
  • Impression techniques for multiple fixtures
  • Impression techniques for multi-abutments
  • Restorative designs of abutments on CAD software

Afternoon Session: Edentulous and Full Mouth Cases

  • Immediate extractions and how to keep track of the vertical dimension
  • The multiple restorative options available to you
  • Accurate transfers of fixtures to models
  • Digital impressions for edentulous cases
  • Edentulous case design with digital dentures
  • Photogrammetry and intra-oral scans of full arch cases

Presenter-Dr. Armen Mirzayan

Armen Mirzayan graduated from Northwestern Dental School in 1998 and completed his General Practice residency at the Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. He met his wife, Dr. Jean Lee-Mirzayan in dental school and they started a practice together in downtown Los Angeles.

Early in his career, Dr. Mirzayan believed that there was little chance that he (and the industry as a whole) would continue to practice analog dentistry for too long, and he eventually purchased a CEREC system in January of 2001. Since then, he has used every version of the CEREC, and has milled on more than a dozen different chairside milling machines. He is also well versed in CBCT technologies and has had a unit in his own practice since 2009. Since then, he has trained well over 10,000 dentists in the use of CAD/CAM, CBCT and guided implant technologies.

In addition to private practice, he co-founded www.cerecdoctors.com; the original site that fostered a training/social network for the community of digital dentists, and essentially set the tone for the growth that the industry enjoys today. In 2013, Dr. Mirzayan founded CAD-Ray to serve as a center for teaching dentists guided surgery techniques and how to fabricate surgical guides. Since its inception, CAD-Ray has manufactured over 35,000 surgical guides and counting. It wasn’t until 2018 that the distribution arm of CAD-Ray was formed, which focuses on the distribution of reliable, efficient digital dentistry options as well as focused training and support for those technologies.

These days, Dr. Mirzayan spends most of his professional time in three ways. First, he travels the country teaching intraoral scanning, digital dentistry shortcuts and advanced dental techniques in his role as the clinical education director for CAD-Ray. Second, he rigorously tests new digital (dental) equipment; evaluating each product for reliability and durability to see if they are worthy of joining the CAD-Ray portfolio of supported products. Third, he still practices dentistry; both as a way of staying fresh, and also to test out new techniques and product innovations. His favorite part of the business is knowing that the strong majority of practicing CAD-Ray customers use their equipment on a daily basis.
