This purely digital approach...was the most inspiring thing.
As a technology enthusiast I have to say that this purely digital approach, the implementation of new technical possibilities in a workflow that works and leads to a predictable result, that was the most inspiring thing about this course for me.

The earlier, the better.
I feel I should have taken this course ten years ago because it would have made everything much more simple. So this is why I would recommend it to any dentist. The earlier, the better.

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.

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.
