What does it cost to implement DSD in your office?
A question that we’re frequently asked is how much it costs to continue with DSD after having completed one of our courses.
What’s important to keep in mind when thinking about course costs and financial planning for your future as a digital dentist is the overall strategy for your clinic and how to get the greatest return on investment on the digital equipment you buy.
The DSD journey consists of courses and membership programs that are specifically designed for you to achieve this return on investment (ROI). By addressing the cost of implementation after DSD courses, we believe you can make a more informed decision about which option meets your specific needs.
What is the DSD journey after courses and how much does it cost?
Implementing DSD concepts and strategies comes in different shapes and sizes. For every one of our courses, theoretical or clinical, there is an immediate and long-term ROI, regardless of whether you already have digital tools such as an intraoral scanner or 3D printer. We deliver concrete information at each course that you can apply in your clinic that will improve the way you perform dentistry.
Below we map out the typical flow of the DSD implementation journey with associated costs, starting with DSD Residency 1 through to DSD Clinic membership:
Online education community
If you have already completed one of our courses, we have a vibrant online community platform called BeDSD+ for you to stay connected to the latest DSD learning content and network with like-minded DSD dentists. Join this platform for a membership fee of only $20 per month.
Do it yourself
DSD Residency 1 is the ideal starting point to the DSD journey because it gives you actionable steps to start taking in your clinic. You can adopt the approach as taught and apply your knowledge with your lab, your equipment and your team.
We always encourage participants to consider investing in an intraoral scanner and a 3D printer, as we believe these tools are vital to the future success of your business. If you already have the equipment, DSD Residency 1 is going to teach you the precise workflows to take better advantage of the technology to significantly increase your case acceptance rates.
