The course is required for WVU School of Dentistry faculty, graduate program residents, third-year and fourth-year dental and dental hygiene students and recommended for practicing dentists and dental hygienists, especially those who are rural health preceptor faculty.  An afternoon session  with Dr. Yeh is geared towards more advanced technology applications, clinical discussion and demonstration of some of the state of the art digital technologies. It is intended for practitioners who are interested in in-depth information about the technologies and their multi-disciplinary applications.
