DSD stands for Digital Smile Design, a concept which became the visual language of dentistry. It was developed by Christian Coachman and Livio Yoshinaga and together they have trained over 75,000 dentists around the world on DSD. Paulo Kano has developed the clinical and CAD/CAM philosophy behind the idea which, combined with Livio Yoshinaga's technological knowledge, started the Skyn Concept. This course is for dentists, technicians, specialists, CAD CAM owners or not, but who are thinking to buy one, DSD practitioners or not, lab owners or not, and investors in future dentistry and students!
