In today’s video, we will go through the question: How up to date is your professional development.
Dentistry has changed a lot since a dentist graduated from the dental school. One practitioner told me changes come “almost daily.” There have been major advances in most materials used in fillings, bonding and implants.
The world of neuromuscular dentistry has evolved at a particularly rapid rate. This branch of dentistry treats misalignment of the jaw which can cause headaches, sleep apnea, worn or cracked teeth and severe jaw pain, among many other symptoms.
Dental techniques have also changed. Laser systems can regenerate bone lost to gum disease and improve smiles with gum contouring. Lasers and air abrasion systems can be used to remove some decay without numbing the patient and to achieve superior dental cleaning.
If your dentist is not actively engaged in continuing education, it is unlikely that he or she is keeping up with these developments. Here are some specific questions to ask or look out for on their website: How many hours of continuing dental education a year do you do? The top dentists would do 100 hours or more
Here at Dental House Group, just in the last 12 months, our dentists did well over 1000 hours of clinical continued education in different field of dentistry, Including Implants, Cerec, Cosmetic dentistry, Orthodontic, Invisalign, Digital Smile Design, gum and bone grafting.
Dr Fong and Dr Warren are currently with the gIDE institute, as 1 year Master Clinician at Loma Linda University in Califonia, whereas Dr Alanna and Dr Elly are currently undertaking in a 2 years program in Progressive Orthodontic. In addition, Dr Fong is also part of the academy of dentistry international.
As you can see, we are very proactive when it comes to continuous professional development here at Dental House Group, so we can serve our patients to the best of our ability.
I hope you found this episode useful.
Services we mentioned:
I know it is okay to use mercury fillings in Australia. However, here at Dental House, wouldn’t put mercury in the mouths of our families or our patients.
If you are like most dental patients, you probably have no idea which dental lab your dentist is using. This lack of information could cost you dearly.
