Digital Dentistry has become a part of everyday Clinical and Laboratory practice. The current learners in dental profession are digital natives who have integrated digital technology in every walk of their lives. These digital natives are extremely carried away by the fantasy and thrill digital technology offers in dental practice. We find that the current generation is shifting their focus and interest towards this field in the façade of upgrading. In the process, they fail to gather basic sciences, scientific rationale, concept building skill, evidence-based practice and development of their psychomotor skills. Digital Dentistry nowadays make the dentist busy in learning the trick of the trade by virtue of its tools and technological adaptation than application of science.
