The 7 steps of the indirect workflow

Each specific procedure step will discuss the most important options, selection criteria and relevant factors for the decision(s) to be made.
The idea is that in the clinical environment, the dental practitioner will select the differentiating factors for each individual case resulting in a case-specific recommended clinical dental protocol.

Lab communication counts

  • Strong collaboration between the dentist and dental technician is critical for workflow optimization. We've created custom checklists, forms and more to help facilitate communication from start to finish.
