The Institute of Digital Dentistry

The Institute of Digital Dentistry (iDD) is New Zealand’s first CAD/CAM and Digital Dentistry specific training centre, and online training platform. iDD is a world leader in digital dentistry education. We stand for advanced, innovative and cutting-edge training in digital dentistry. 

Our goal is to bring together dental professionals that are passionate about digital dentistry and its possibilities. One of our aims is to promote and teach the many facets of digital dentistry and how it can revolutionize your practice and make dentistry more enjoyable and insightful for you and your patients. Above all, we stand for brand-agnostic and totally objective education in digital dentistry, that can be trusted by our colleagues to be true. Not a marketing pitch or a advertisement. 

Dr. Ahmad Al-Hassiny, the director of iDD, is a driven and passionate full-time private dentist from New Zealand. After graduating from the University of Otago with First Class Honours, Dr Ahmad is working alongside his father in Wellington, NZ, where they run 39 dental chairs and a digital dental lab. 

As one of the only places in the world with knowledge and clinical experience of all intraoral scanners and CAD software on the market, this gives us a unique position which has been recognized by industry and dental professionals globally. 

Across our clinics we own and have used a range of scanners including CEREC Primescan, TRIOS, Medit, Itero, Planmeca, Runyes, WOW, Heron and the list goes on and on. We also have advanced experience with all CAD software including CEREC, Inlab, 3Shape Design Studio and exocad. On top of this is our range of milling machines and 3D printers all in-house. We share all our experience without sponsorship, and we remain unwaveringly committed to being an unbiased and trustworthy source of information. 


Our goal is to help our colleagues within the dental profession to take the first steps into the digital world. iDD Online has evolved from the Institute of Digital Dentistry. Through our work with dental professionals and our ever-growing global online community, we’ve learned it’s prohibitively difficult to source unbiased, up-to-the-minute information about digital dentistry. What has become clear over the years is that we cannot rely on sales reps and KOL's for objective information. 

Enter iDD Online. Our mission is to ensure everyone globally, has easy and affordable access to the best digital dentistry training possible. To achieve this, we’re providing dental professionals from all corners of the world with the knowledge and confidence to use digital dentistry effectively and efficiently. The digital workflow is revolutionizing the dentistry profession, and those who embrace these techniques will go far.

It’s important to us that our dental colleagues have fair, objective information about scanners and CAD/CAM technology. With this, they can make informed decisions and build knowledge specific to their needs and priorities, without the pressures of sales reps or brand-orientated content.
