Your digital dentistry journey starts here
Get the most comprehensive digital dentistry education available, without bias.
Right now, the digital dentistry industry is being led by the suppliers of the technology which have a conflict of interest - we exist to provide knowledge that is up to date, impartial and based on clinical experience.
Dentists, technicians and specialists message us daily asking, which CAD/CAM system should they choose or which one is the best system? When you have sales reps all saying their particular product is the best, who do you believe?
It is even worse when you finally invest and find that the training provided by the supplier is substandard and really doesn't set you up to succeed with this technology.
We find that dental professionals are often just looking for an unbiased and objective point of view free from sponsors influence, where they can get practical insights and comprehensive education.
We had similar issues when we got into CAD/CAM over 10 years ago. It was very different for us back then because so few people had even bought a CAD/CAM system to begin with. We had to take a leap of faith, and thankfully we made it work.
There was a lot of things that we learnt during this time that the sales reps didn't tell us. We don’t want any other dental professionals to have to experience that stress that we went through by learning digital dentistry the hard way.
That's why we started the Institute of Digital Dentistry, to teach our colleagues everything they need to know to succeed. So in this way everyone can have unbiased and objective advice they can trust.
If you want to benefit from our decades of insight in CAD/CAM and make your digital dentistry journey a success - this is the training for you.

Success stories from our members
A Highly RECOMMENDED course unique to New Zealand. The Institute of Digital Dentistry presented by Hamid Al-Hassiny and his sons, Ahmad and Haidar all have great CHARACTER. COMMENDATION to a well balanced informative lecture base and hands-on touch. An ENDORSEMENT to an unbiased, peer to peer family approach. Digital Scan, Design, Mill in one appointment is the future, so DO NOT get left behind.
Knowing which machine to use when, whether one machine is going to be too slow or not accurate enough… it’s a minefield out there. If you’re on the fence [about iDD], you need to jump in and do it, because at the end of the day, dentistry is all going digital. Everything coming out now is digitally-based. It looks so much better, and it’s nicer for patients. So, if you want to be giving patients the best treatment, you need to get onto the course and have all the experience you can to take that to your practice.
There are no courses in NZ that understand and embrace the future of dentistry quite like Dr Ahmad and his staff at iDD. Nothing like a course where you can learn to scan, design, mill and even glaze your own CAD/CAM restorations using many different systems! Dr Ahmad spares nothing in order to achieve the greatest results in dentistry and it is evident in both the equipment and the knowledge he has acquired in his practicing career. He holds nothing back and I feel like I have come out of the course not only confident that I would be able to do this in the mouth but also a better clinician. 5/5 would recommend

Our members say it best...
This course offers an unbiased overview of many different systems. If you want to get into CAD/CAM and you don’t know where to start, this is the place.
It’s been so beneficial. Not only do you get to learn how to do everything, but you get exposure to all the different systems. I’ve learnt that I could do so much more. I had only been doing single crown restorations. I was scared to do anything else, just because of time pressure. But iDD has given me the confidence I need to do so much more.
Amazing courses, the best way to see multiple different digital scanning and milling systems in action. I can’t recommend the Institute of Digital Dentistry highly enough for dentists interested in starting digital dentistry.
iDD has given me a really good introduction into all aspects of Digital Dentistry. It is an extremely helpful and comprehensive guide for beginners in digital dentistry like me. Look forward to more learning!!
The Institute of Digital Dentistry Online has so many useful tips for a dentist using scanners. Also Dr Ahmad has made it very simple, honest and user friendly in explanation. I have already implemented the concepts taught and am enjoying the rewards.
