The aim of this paper is to illustrate the concept of DOP Dentistry (Digital Ortho Paediatric Dentistry) in daily practice.
DOP Dentistry is a new concept introduced by the authors to express the perfect integration between two disciplines that for a long time have been separated: paediatric dentistry and paediatric orthodontics. In modern dentistry it is increasingly important for the paediatric dentist to have skills and abilities that embrace both of these disciplines. To these we have to add a third element, represented by new digital technologies, as well as new bioactive ionic resin composites and biocompatible technopolymers to perform fully digital, integrated paediatric orthodontic treatments.
Based on the DOP Dentistry concept, that definitely changes the paradigm of taking care of children, new and fascinating scenarios open up, that will lead us to a more integrated management of our little patients, their needs and those of their family with a new, more ergonomic, efficient and tailor-made approach.
