The GV Black Dental Study Club welcomes Dr. Mark Malterud.
From Here to Eternity: How to set up your treatments and your practice for Long Term Success
This lecture will present a diverse mix of diagnostic, restorative, and complex treatment protocols that embody the philosophy that the best dentistry is no dentistry. Early detection of dental pathologies and use of minimally invasive procedures can set a patient up for long term oral success. The materials, equipment and techniques that have led to nearly 35 years of clinical successes will be explored along with many of the problems along the way. Learning from these problems and the techniques used to recover create important learning points. When the National Institute of Health prints that composite resins only last 5.7 years and the main reason for replacement is recurrent decay and fractures, we need to step back and examine how this impacts our patients and practices. The reasons for this lack of success will be presented and techniques for creating long term success will be taught. More complex care will also be presented that follow along the lines of this Minimal Invasive Philosophy.
