The Odontology Section of The Royal Academy of Medicine in Ireland thanks our speaker, Dr Gabrielle O'Donoghue, and attendees of our final event of this academic year on Tuesday 14th March 2023 entitled 'Modernising Complete Dentures with the Digital Workflow.' During this synchronous online event Dr O'Donoghue discussed the current state of the art of digital workflow procedures as they relate to conventional complete denture fabrication, including the clinical and laboratory steps involved and the methods presently used to optimise the treatment outcomes of the resultant prostheses. An engaging Q&A session followed which lasted as long as the lecture; touching upon the intricacies of additive vs subtractive manufacturing, the effects of these developments on our environment, achieving occlusal control and the adoption of digital dentistry procedures within the pedagogy of dentistry. The session was recorded for asynchronous access and interested parties can feel free to contact the Odontology Section should they wish to access the recording.
