Running your dental office – does one size fit all?

Goran Tošić PhD MSc DDS

Running your dental office – does one size fit all?

In pursuit for perfection (and personal satisfaction) tailor your own dental practice according to your own preferences, skills, talents, and local demands - and you will be successful!

Working from Norway to Botswana, from Libya to UAE, I witnessed the differences between North and South, West and East, and significant gaps and distinctions in health systems, and health insurance plans in the world related to dental service. Through following presentation I would like to discuss some of generally accepted business models, with hints, tips, and advises for developing successful dental practice. It may provokes you to describe, design, challenge, invent, and pivot your own business model. The final result may be optimization, and reducing the risks of your own business model, or to develop a new one. Dentists are specific fraction of professionals who are self-selected in pursuit for perfection, and we are driven by constant desire to make things better! This could be the common pattern for all dentist all over the world, but it isn’t. In most cases The Economical Factor of specific environment are factors for dentist to deviate from the path of perfection. In some cases cultural diversities as well can be highly influential in setting dental business. However, patients really don’t care about our technologies, new equipment and materials, and they simply try to resolve the problem, or to fulfil their needs. At this point the bottom line of all our discussions should emphasize the importance of prevention. Since there is no magic formula for success, we have to adopt new approaches in order to grow and change on our way to personal satisfaction, influencing colleagues and patients with personal enthusiasm and Happiness Factor in everyday dental practice.

Digitalization and predictability in implant dentistry: introducing MGUIDE and MSOFT

The introduction and availability of cone beam computed tomography has improved analysis of clinical cases and implant placement planning in three dimensions.

In recent years, different concepts of three-dimensional planning, such as computer-guided(static) surgery, have been proposed to transfer virtual digital planning from a personal computer to the surgical field to improve accuracy and performance. The degree of correlation between the virtual plan and the final placement of the implant in the patient’s mouth is very much dependent on the accuracy of the clinical steps during data collection, treatment planning and the surgical work. A structural approach and a “step-by-step” workflow will be presented, with a discussion on the inherent potential for process errors and the way to minimize them.

Sugars and Oral Health: evidence to practice

Prof. Paula Moynihan

Sugars and Oral Health: evidence to practice

The webinar will cover an overview of the most recent evidence pertaining to intake of sugars and risk of dental caries and other non-communicable diseases.

It will include information on the recommended thresholds for sugars intake and an overview of both upstream, and downstream approaches to reducing intake, including dietary advice in the dental practice. Information on the classification of sugars for health purposes, the relative importance of reducing amount consumed versus reducing the frequency of intake, and different dietary sources of sugars, such as fruits and milk will be discussed. The main dietary messages to deliver to patients will be presented. Participants will learn:
  • Why it is important to reduce sugars intake – the evidence underpinning current recommendations
  • Knowledge of current levels of free sugars intake and the dietary sources
  • Evidence based dietary advice for use in dental practice

The Secrets of the V3 Implant System

Prof. Nitzan Bichacho

The Secrets of the V3 Implant System

The V3 implant concept will be introduced and explained in-depth, with a variety of clinical examples.

The V3 implant concept emerged from current biologic and biomechanical insights, following decades of clinical experience backed by vast scientific data in the field. The system excels in bone and soft tissue preservation, high immediate stability, excellent control over placement and provides a wide range of innovative simplified prosthetic components, which altogether allow for outstanding healing and maturation response of the surrounding tissues. The design of the implant head, threads and core, as well as the surgical kit, simplify the surgical procedure and reduces the risk of complications. The implant has a unique triangular coronal design, which immediately affects the response of the surrounding hard and soft tissues resulting in extraordinary biologic and aesthetic results.

Is Good Dental Health a Benefit Experienced by All?

Oral disease is a health issue experienced by children and adults living in the United States.

The burden of poor dental health affects a disproportionate number of the population in the United States. Many of these individuals represent diverse ethnic groups. As dental professionals what can we do to address the oral health needs of diverse population groups? Participants will learn:
  • Understand social determinant factors that influence oral health outcomes
  • Describe the population groups that disproportionately experience oral health disparities
  • Explain recommendations to address the oral health needs of diverse population groups

Have you been BOB’ed?

Theodora Little RDH

Have you been BOB’ed?

How BOB can can bridge the ‘interdental gap’ between increasing your patient health and revenue by doing prevention in a different way.

This short introduction of our friend BOB will demonstrate to clinicians how, with the help of an online app, they can increase their patients health and revenue purely through prevention. The BOB score not only provides an effective but quick bleeding score, but also an interdental brush mouth map in which the patient can use at home, and as we all know, the majority of dental diseases begin inter proximally. BOB is your new friend, there to support and motivate you and your patient even when you are not together.

Furthermore, in more experienced hands, a periodontal chart is helpful to estimate risk assessment.

Accompanied by a radiographic status and clinical slides of the mouth, the periodontal chart is helpful when discussing inter-disciplinary treatment planning. What is the sequence of the protocol and where exactly does the data have to be filled? Which parameters are registered and what is the value set of each parameters? Within the webinar, the handling of particularities such as charting implants or root-amputated natural teeth will be discussed. Tips and tricks may facilitate the task and finally, to be certain of the accuracy of your results, double checking and calibrating together with a colleague is always recommended.

Update Bone Ring Technique: New science and clinical studies

Dr. Emre Benlidayi, Dr. Orcan Yüksel

Update Bone Ring Technique: New science and clinical studies

Bone Ring Technique: The use of autologous or allogenic bone for simultaneous augmentation and implant placement. The webinar discusses the (dis)advantage of both materials through histological evaluations and new clinical studies

Bone Ring Technique was originally described as a one-stage procedure for vertical augmentation, in which an autogenous block bone graft is stabilized with a simultaneously inserted dental implant. Harvesting of bone from symphysis using a trephine appears to be safe and results in minimal morbidity. Autogenous bone used in Bone Ring Technique is accompanied by the fracture risk during removal or implant placement and usual donor site morbidities. The  allogenic bone ring is a pre-fabricated graft which allows bone augmentation and implant placement in a one-stage procedure. The main benefit of allogenic bone ring is the avoidance of harvesting of autogenous bone. However there is not enough data in the literature about the success of this graft material. The webinar will address the remodeling process of autogenous and allograft bone rings based on histological evaluations and histomorphometric analysis in an experimental animal model. In addition, the use of autogenous and allograft bone rings in vertical alveolar augmentation and sinus augmentation will be discussed in clinical cases.
