Video: Anterior Deprogrammer Design using D3Splint (Pt 1)

Hello again! In this video I demonstrate how I utilize a wonderful program called D3Splint to design an upper anterior depgrogrammer. This is part 1 of a 2 part series. In the next video I will show the design of an opposing flat plane. This method will allow you to fabricate great fitting occlusal splints very economically in your office.

Scanner: CS3600. Software: D3Splint Printer: Moonray S Resin: Nextdent Ortho Clear

On a practice management side note: considering this software has free exports much like meshmixer, once you train up an auxiliary team member to do this, total cost for making a splint could be under $25, and that includes paying your team member for their time.

A 1 liter bottle of NextDent Ortho Clear retails for about $300. Total resin for the print in this video was 12 mL. That also includes the opposing splint coming up in the next video. That would make the total cost of resin for this case come in under $4.00. That’s pretty darn reasonable to me!

Video: The Cheapest Maxillary Screening Tool Ever!

Hello again! In this video I talk a little bit about maxillary deficiency, why we should be screening for it, and I show how to do it efficiently and inexpensively using a tool every dentist has available chairside.

This has been a huge help in my practice to implement maxillary width screening, not only for myself, but for all of my clinical team members as well! I hope you enjoy!

Video: Ceph Workflow on Blue Sky Plan

Here is a video demonstrating use of the ceph module in Blue Sky Plan. I was taught comprehensive orthodontics first by the fine team at Gerety Orthodontic Seminars (, of which I am now an associate instructor for as well.

In that program we teach the use of a Modified Steiner analysis, which is what I demonstrate here. This case work up is of a Phase 1 case.

I hope you enjoy, and be on the lookout for more videos coming soon!

Welcome to the new page!

Hello all! My name is Matthew Standridge and this is my new website geared toward dental professionals. I have been blessed with the opportunity to learn from many great teachers and mentors over the years and I wanted to pay it forward. Topics of interest include orthodontics (brackets, aligners, cosmetic, comprehensive, early treatment, you name it), utilizing lower-cost digital software and technology to lower the barrier of entry for practitioners, dental implants, and generally cool clinical tips and tricks.
