The ongoing advancement of new procedures and technology within the dental profession continues to grow at an accelerated rate. The comprehensive volume of information that must be maintained to remain competent in the respective fields of study as a dentist or a dental technician, therefore, become increasingly difficult to sustain. Although an exhaustive knowledge base for either specialty is simply not possible, numerous overlapping philosophies and techniques have been recognized that are able to improve the daily workflow of the restorative clinician.
