It doesn’t matter what intra-oral scanner you are currently using-our courses cover non-denominational topics and details common to all of them. Join us to expand your knowledge of each scanner’s functionality beyond simple scanning, and gain insight into all of the next-level procedures it’s capable of to maximize your investment.
Course topics/objectives are as follows:
- Discovering ways we can introduce errors while scanning, and how we can eliminate them
- Finding out how to print and mill any restoration or prosthesis from your IOS
- Discover how you can train your team to do most of the clinical work for you.
- Learn how easy it can be to do a full mouth reconstruction using your intra-oral scanner
- Design, print, and deliver a nightguard for yourself so you can understand how the full digital workflow process works

Here is a sample video of the material Dr. Mirzayan will be presenting at this event:
About the speaker
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.
***GOOD NEWS!*** This course includes access to the 3D Discovery event with Dr. Vu Le, details below:
