The DSD Planning Center is the first and still the only comprehensive digital planning service in the world. The service is extremely effective in helping doctors make better planning decisions for their patients. To ensure the quality of the service offered, the DSD Planning Center is run by a high-end team of dentists, specialists, CAD designers and engineers. Due to its complexity and the level of people involved, the DSD Planning Center services are not open to all doctors, but just to the ones that are certified DSD Clinics or in the DSD Mastership program. A certain level of skill is required by doctors in order to make the most of the access to the suite of products.

To become a DSD Planning Center user, you first of all need the basic DSD training that you will receive in the Residency 1 courses (in-person or livestream). After the basic knowledge training, to be able to use the DSD Planning Center you will need to sign up for the DSD Mastership or DSD Clinic certification.
