How Up to Date is Your Professional Development?
Are you looking for a new dentist to look after you and your family? In this 10 part: Interview Questions for Your New Dentist series, we will go through questions you should be asking your new dentist before going ahead with them.

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
