Digital Dentistry Technology

New College of Dentistry faculty member Leonardo Nassani, DMD, from the Division of Restorative and Prosthetic Dentistry, has implemented the instruction of computer aided manufacturing (CAM) technology into the DDS curriculum, which is a first for the college. Working in partnership with Ohio State’s Prior Health Sciences Library and the College of Engineering, Dr. Nassani, has second-year dental students using 3D printers to print provisional fixed dental prostheses.
