    Does anyone have any advice about completing the CDD program? I started the CDD program months ago and have been having trouble finding the motivation to continue doing the program requirements at a steady pace.

    Why is it so hard for doctors to give up some control to assistants? We sit right by your side every day, in fact we are your right hand. When will doctors be able to think more highly of their assistant or even treat them with a little more respect. Whatever happened to Bonnie and…

    This can be a tricky situation because 1) dr might not realize you feel this way, 2) dr doesn't care how you feel, 3) dr doesn't want you to feel bad but has trouble relinquishing responsibilities for a number of possible reasons (they have fun using their toy themself, they don't have confidence in your…

    What are the benefits of being CDD certified?
    Meredith Spink1386015932 made the last post
    I agree with Terry, and isn't a long strenuous process to be certified. I received my certification a few years back. I like to allow patients to watch me design sometimes and they usually ask several questions, like "where did you learn to do this and how long did it take you to figure it…

    How come when the Dr. scanned he'd have two assistants but now that we scan we are expected to do it on our own?
    Meredith Spink1386015932 made the last post
    Apparently, I haven't seen or used it yet, but the NEVO scanner will fix the difficulties you face when doing it by yourself. It scans more efficiently and has fans inside that keep the lens from fogging and its easier to eliminate bad data. This doesn't help you if you are not planning to purchase…

    I was very impressed with how smooth and well trained everyone and CAD CAM Camp was amazing. We learned so much in that short time it was unreal. Everyone was extremely friendly and Marci took her time to answer my questions which seemed to be more than one or two. Thank you to the wonder…

    Hi Amy, On the written final, how do we know what the exam will cover? Will there be a study guide or just something stating the basics of the exam? Thanks, hope this is not a dunb question. I just got started with the CDD program.

    Working on my CDD.System is easy to navigate and patients are glad they do not have to return for second appointment.

    If you want quicker results then 3-6 months to become a designer, try heading to Texas and attending some of their more advanced classes for ex: Focus on Veneers, or Cad Camp, this completes a majority of your training needed towards your certification. Check out more in the class section!

In that time I've done close to 200 restorations, including full anterior arches and bite correction. I feel…
