• Seeing Radiology in 3D: The Future of Digital Dentistry

  • With the advent of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) three-dimensional radiology was made available for the dental practice. CBCT imaging provides greater diagnostic capabilities as well as serving as the foundation for integrating digital dentistry into modern practice. This course will explore the following topics:
  • How does cone beam CT work and how does one decide what type of system to purchase?
  • What are the radiation risks associated with CBCT and
  • What are the legal responsibilities for CBCT owners and
  • What are the current clinical applications especially in regard to the integration of digital dentistry in the creation of the virtual patient?

Learning Objectives

  • Learn about the clinical applications of cone beam CT as well as the diagnostic advantages of 3D imaging over 2D
  • Learn about how cone beam CT works, radiation risks and legal responsibilities associated with using CBCT and when to refer cases to maxillofacial radiologists for reports
  • Know how to ask the right questions in purchasing a CBCT system and understand why such systems form the foundation for digital dentistry

+ Speaker Bio

  • Dr. Heidi Bridget Kohltfarber is the owner and managing oral and maxillofacial radiologist for Dental Radiology Diagnostics and a Dentsply Sirona 3D trainer. In addition, she is an adjunct professor in the Department of Diagnostic Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She received her D.D.S. degree from Loma Linda University in 2003 and in 2012 she received her master's degree in Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology from UNC-Chapel Hill.
