Communicating with the Laboratory in the Digital Age

Digital technology has become ever growing in our daily life, and this has become a welcome addition in the dental field. The evolution process in transmitting information digitally to the dental laboratory has however been slow. Conventional tools for communication between the dentist and the technician include photography, written documentation on a laboratory slip and impression of the patient’s existing dentition, the clinical preps or implant impression and opposing dentition. We will review and explore opportunities and rationale for digital communication from the dentist to the lab.
