THE DSD MASTERSHIP PROCESS

  1. Be a DSD Member by attending a DSD Residency 1 or X course: in-person or online (R1
    or RX Livestream)

  2. Join the Mastership program

  3. Gain access to WatchDSD content and special videos and webinars for the Mastership

  4. Take advantage of the direct support from our doctor team of specialists, who will help
    you deliver your cases

  5. Perform cases with DSD Planning Center and DSD Lab

  6. Create a slide presentation of 3 patient cases, each fully documented and completed
    with the DSD methodology – any type of comprehensive treatment plan will be
    accepted (interdisciplinary or disciplinary)

  7. All 3 cases must have a 2D design (frame and simulation) created with the DSD Hands
    On App® done by the doctor. The design and facial analysis skills will be evaluated.

  8. All 3 cases need to be planned and designed with DSD Planning Center® and be fully
    digital, following the facially-driven digital dentistry and copy-paste dentistry concept
    *Optional: of the 3 cases, one of them can be digitally planned and manufactured by your local lab instead of the DSD Planning Center and Lab, following the DSD protocols and workflow (facially-driven software, natural algorithms, copy-paste dentistry, guides, quality control, etc).
    This way we can help you with the training of your lab.

  9. At least 2 cases must be fully manufactured by the DSD Lab®. The other case can be
    either manufactured by your lab following the copy-paste protocol or by the DSD Lab.

  10. You will be required to take a multiple choice test on the DSD concepts graded by the
    DSD Faculty, in which the pass rate will be >70%

  11. These cases will be reviewed by the DSD Faculty and feedback will be given if any
    requirements are not met

  12. You have 24 months from signing up to present the 3 cases for approval, and 12
    months of full support from our Mastership Mentors Team of doctors
