Like so many other industries, dentistry is rapidly evolving to suit patient needs. The traditional experience of going to the dentist has changed quite a bit over the past year due to Covid-19 precautions.

The dentist can then change the images to show how the patient would benefit from a treatment plan. The best part is that the design process takes place virtually.
