From  ScienceDirect: Following is the summary of this scientific article by E. Dianne Rekow, King’s College, London.

Digital innovations have unquestionably disrupted dentistry. With these innovations, patient experience has improved. More restoration options are available delivering longer lifetimes, and better esthetics. Fresh approaches are bringing greater efficiency and accuracy, capitalizing on the interest, capabilities, and skills of those involved. New ways for effective and efficient interprofessional and clinician-patient interactions have evolved. Data can be more efficiently mined for forensic and epidemiological uses. Students have fresh ways of learning. New, often unexpected, partnerships have formed bringing further disruption — and novel advantages.

Is digital dentistry disruptive? Absolutely. Is it destructive? Absolutely not!
