Dr Song's research focuses on the exploration of using modern technology in clinical care and clinical education. In clinical care, virtual planning, computer-aided-design (CAD) and three-dimensional (3D) printing techniques are major technological advancements that can revolutionise the practice of dentistry, allowing more efficient workflow, less wastage and greater benefits to patients. In clinical education, with the arrival of ‘post-millennial’ graduates in the workforce, new teaching modalities using digital technology can motivate these ‘digital natives’ to continue their personal and professional development even after graduation. Clinicians engaged in self-directed learning will naturally translate to better patient care.
