More successful with DIR® functional diagnostics:
get certified now for the new DIR® Concept!
Functional diagnostics is an interdisciplinary method that requires close cooperation between dentists, dental technicians and other professional groups involved. Instrumental functional diagnostics utilising the DIR® Concept are always exclusively in the hand of the qualified dentist. Certification courses are put on by either the “Gesellschaft für Funktionsdiagnostik DIR® System mbH & Co. KG” (SFD for short) or by a DIR® partner laboratory in the respective region. Dentists can either attend a DIR® compact training event nearby (Curriculum Functional Diagnostics) or a multi-level individual training event (Function Compact with DIR®, parts 1 to 3). Generally speaking, they only need one day to get started with DIR®. But they need more practice and regular refreshers in order to ensure that the quality of DIR® functional diagnostics is secured beyond its beginnings.
