No. The DSD App and DSD Hands On App are no longer in use. However, DSD is much more than these apps!

By attending DSD Residency 1, you’ll not only learn the principles of smile design, but you’ll also discover the proven strategies to finding greater fulfillment in your dental career and daily work – which is worth much more than any app…

No. The DSD Planning Center is closed exclusively to our DSD Clinics and those enrolled on the DSD Mastership. However, you will have the option to explore these pathways after attending DSD Residency 1.

The reason for this is because we want to provide the highest standard of service and products for our clients who choose the exclusive pathway.

DSD Residency 1 is the ideal first step in the DSD pathway. However, there isn’t a specific sequence of DSD Courses that you need to follow (with the exception of DSD Residency 2, which needs to be taken after Residency 1).

Our courses are independent of each other – the order in which you take them is entirely up to you. Should you wish to discuss these options with one of our team members, you can schedule a call with one of our advisers who can help you to make an informed decision.

There are a number of pathways for you to explore after attending this course, with many alumni opting to attend DSD Residency 2 or one of a range of DSD courses.

There’s also our DSD Mastership program for those who want to master DSD's workflows on their patients with a 12-month clinical mentoring by the DSD clinical team.

And the DSD Clinic pathway for those who want to skyrocket their Comprehensive Dentistry skills and business with our exclusive services.

Should you wish to discuss these options with one of our team members, you can schedule a call with one of our advisers who can help you to make an informed decision.
