Welcome Message from the New York Center for Digital Dentistry (NYCDD) Team
Restorative Digital Dentistry (RDD) can be complicated. It can be frustrating, demanding, confusing, and exhausting, but also extremely rewarding! It revolutionizes our patient’s experience, our office professionalism, and our profits!
It requires us to make smart choices about strategy, about manufacturers, and about giving of ourselves – to learn and exchange information and ideas, to share knowledge and experience, so that we can better serve our patients.
It requires courage to start, complete the journey, and to lead our Teams effectively, day by day.
The NYCDD materials are not magic solutions; there aren’t any! They are to help office leaders make their way through the grey areas, choosing solutions that are right for their offices, their teams, their patients and for them!
Our resources and tools are based on our experience from the last decade and our involvement in industry leading Key Opinion Leader Programs. They reflect the learning we have taken from our successes, as well as our failures! They will help you accelerate the adoption of RDD in your office.
We wish you every success on your journey, and look forward to helping you in any and every way we can.
Dr. Gary Kaye DDS,FAGD. Founder & Principal
