The Digital Revolution is changing the world: computers and digital devices are making what were previously manual tasks easier, faster, cheaper and more predictable.
Even in dentistry, digital technologies are rapidly advancing: intraoral, desktop and face scanners, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), software for computer-assisted-design/ computer-assisted-manufacturing (CAD/CAM) and fabrication procedures like milling and 3D printing are changing the way we treat our patients.
For this reason, the International Digital Dentistry Society (DDS) has been formally established.
The mission of the Digital Dentistry Society (DDS) is:
specific guidelines for the use of digital technologies in dentistry, in order to set and maintain high professional standars, which strengthen the power of Digital Dentistry worldwide.
and therefore validate the new digital technologies and products offered by the Dental Companies/Industries.
professional recognition for Members and Partner Companies/Industries.
affiliated Societies and Organization to promote their activities.
dentists, students, dental technicians, software developers and engineers, encouraging research, communication and collaboration between them, in order to stimulate opportunities for the advancement, extension and practice of Digital Dentistry worldwide.
the scientific potential, capability and achievements of Digital Dentistry.
with Dental Companies/Industries, in order to promote the role of Digital Dentistry worldwide.
mutual understanding and cooperation among the affiliated Societies of different countries.
