WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR YOUR 3 CASES?
  • All 3 cases must be planned with the DSD Planning Center and be fully digital.
  • At least 1 case must have a 2D design made with the DSDApp (this can be a different case from the Planning Center ones).
  • At least 1 case must be done with DSD Lab restorations.

The DSD Faculty will review your cases and give you feedback.

They must have :
  • Good quality photo and video documentation.
  • 2D design (DSD step by step) with the final 2D project in the 3 DSD views (frontal, occlusal, and 12 o’clock).
  • High-quality mock-up and facial integration (facial portraits with mock-up).
  • High-quality emotional/ motivational pictures and video with the mock-up for the patient’s slide presentation.
  • Treatment plan following the Smile Design project with a summary of the treatment plan.
  • High-quality clinical steps in the case (e.g. tooth prep, impression, provisional, perio surgery, implant placement, cementation, ortho, occlusal adjustment)
  • Final outcome and final restorations (or final results)
  • High-quality slide presentation in general (layout)
  • The documentation for the finalized cases (photos and videos) must be the same as the pre-op ones so we can compare the final outcome for all DSD views (frontal, occlusal, and 12 o’clock).
How should your presentation be structured?
  • Patient intro
  • Pre-op photo/video documentation
  • Patient documentation (x-rays, questionnaire, perio chart, etc.)
  • DSD sequence (the 8 steps of Smile Design: midline, smile curve, interdental proportion, central proportion, gingival curve, papilla curve, 12 o’clock, occlusal arch)
  • 2D smile design/ planning (done with the DSD App)
  • 3D smile design + frame in the 3 views (frontal, occlusal, 12 o’clock)
  • Wax up quality control
  • Slides to present the mock-up to the patient
  • Treatment plan presentation
  • Clinical procedure. Main clinical steps (gingivoplasty, prep, ortho, provisionals, etc)
  • Final outcome. As well as intraoral photos of the final outcome, all 4 DSD angles should be shown in portrait photos as well (frontal, occlusal, profile, and 12 o’clock). The same video protocol used in the pre-op documentation should be repeated in the final situation.
HOW DO I REMAIN A DSD MASTER?
  • Attend a Residency 1 once every three years to stay up to date.
  • Submit one case presentation for evaluation each year. This must use the DSD Planning Center and DSDApp.
