Take Your Implant Restorations To A Higher Level

Those who have followed me know that one of my passions is to take a clinical procedure and find a way to make it more efficient and produce better outcomes.  By now we should all know that CAD/CAM technology is drastically changing how we do dentistry.  Until recently this has mainly been limited to traditional […]

The Most Under Utilized Clinical Application for CEREC

CEREC is unlike anything I have ever experienced in dentistry.  Not a day goes by that my patients aren’t absolutely amazed by it.  Even more important, not a day goes by that CEREC doesn’t make clinical dentistry more efficient and predictable. However, an arena that CEREC is not given enough credit is the hardest restoration […]

Are You Prepared? 3D Imaging Let’s You See the Future

Not all implant cases are created equal. Some cases are straightforward and don’t need a flap or grafting to complete. Some are complex and require ‘pre implant’ surgery to allow you to even place the implant. In my opinion, one of the great advantages of 3D imaging to plan your implant cases is that you […]

Maybe I am different. For the first 12 years of my professional life I never preplanned my time off. I simply decided a few months in advance, booked something, and then adjusted my office schedule.

Is Your Schedule Killing Your Practice Productivity?

A ‘full’ schedule is not a sign of a flourishing practice. It could actually be a sign of a disorganized practice. Are you tired of your schedule running you and you not running your schedule? Are you frustrated that you aren’t able to do more of the type of treatment that you desire? Do you […]

Conservative Smile Enhancement

About a decade ago cosmetic treatment meant 8-10 veneers for a patient. For me personally there has been a conscious push towards more conservative treatment. My philosophy is how little work can I do to achieve the patient goal. Chucks’ case is a great example of this. Chuck has been a patient of ours for […]

Something I Learned in Dental School That CEREC Has Totally Destroyed

Dental school can bring back scary memories and even some good memories (for me it was mainly positive). I remember taking everything I heard or learned as gospel. But then came private practice, dealing with patient expectations, and the pressures of being your own business. Specifically, I recall being taught in dental school that you […]
