Explore the RAYFace and its sophisticated technology and design which bring a new level of efficiency, precision and comfort to the treatment process, providing patients and dental professionals with a life-changing experience.


We discover how to take a Face scan in a fraction of a second and how the intra-oral scans and CT data automatically align the virtual face. We learn how the 3D virtual patient can be analyzed using cutting-edge facially driven technology for aesthetic and functional smile design.


Furthermore, we learn how the 3D virtual patient is used in the lab for facial-driven digital treatment planning, resulting in a new smile created from the face. All the benefits of the RAYFace in a practical hands-on session!


An individual perfect matching crown at an affordable price. OptiCrown offers the perfect outcome even in the most challenging anterior cases. Explore this new solution for shade matching that surpasses all other digital color measurement devices on the market with its accuracy and repeatability.



Learn how to use the OptiShade device in a practical demo and hands-on session and understand the world of colorimetry and how Matisse software calculates, using AI, the recipes and ceramic powder mixings necessary for the given individual case.


Treating your patient with aligners include some specific actions. In order to move both space and force are required. When expansion and proclination of elements do not provide enough space, IPR (interproximal reduction) will be prescribed. With this workshop, we will train you on how to read the treatment timeline with regard to IPR and to perform this reduction correctly by using the attachment template. We will also show which instruments are on the market to do this efficiently.


Another action is placing the designed attachments. These are composite auxiliaries on the tooth surface that provide extra and specific forces for more complex movements of teeth. You will learn how to read the clinical card and how to place these attachments correctly. Tips for monitoring the condition of these attachments during treatment will be given.


Learn all about the newly developed scan strategy using an IOS and CAPS SYSTEM which provides us the accurate IOS data on the implant positions. In the same visit a „digital bite registration“ can be performed. Discover the 2-step workflow which offers a significant reduction in chair time! In terms of accuracy and predictability we reach the highest levels and are able to offer a high-end passive fitting aesthetic full arch implant restoration. Different
options are available and each option has its own features and benefits to fulfil the
patients demands.



A practical demo and hands-on session of the new CAPS scan strategy and exploration of the product options for All-On-X cases!


The Composite Forma®-Injection Technique (F.I.T.) is a unique solution to treat tooth surface loss in a quick, easy, predictable and efficient way. In this no-prep technique, a direct flowable micro-filled resin hybrid composite is used to achieve a perfect, total rehabilitation. Discover all details on this biomimetic solution treating tooth surface loss / tooth wear and trauma cases using an efficient workflow to improve aesthetics and function.


In this hands-on session we practise the injection technique on models and share tips & tricks.







Did you know there is a scan strategy for edentulous arches?


Discover and embrace the benefits of the EVO FUSION digital dentures where the use of the unique Lo Russo retractors and the accompanying scanning strategy unleashes a true revolution. Until recently, the digital prosthesis was only truly digital on the production side, in the lab the entire production process has already been digitized, which leads to a stronger, better fitting prosthesis. On the clinical side, scanning a conventional impression with an IOS was the “digital“ option. Thanks to the Lo Russo retractors, an edentulous jaw can now be scanned in a passive state. We learn about the difference between muco-compression and muco-static (IOS scan) concepts and how denture retention works for both options. In the hands-on session we explore the scan strategy from the practical side.
