Inspiration! Motivation! Knowledge! Success! All these emotions are what we felt this past week during our annual continuing education course. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry puts on a course every year that inspires, motivates, teaches and enlightens us. This week has been geared towards us as dental professionals making sure that we are up to date with the latest information and technologies in our industry.
There is something very inspirational and motivating about seeing over 2,000 dentists and staff gathering under one common goal: Knowledge! There was even record attendance this year which means even more like-minded folks gathered to better themselves!
What Inspired Us The Most
This year it felt more than ever that sleep apnea was the center of attention at the conference. Dentists have been seeing the affects of sleep apnea on our patients for many years. We have created many sleep devices in attempts to help this very serious condition and alleviate some of its negative affects on a patients overall health. With the continued mindset of total body health, we are now more than ever partnering with our patient’s general practitioners to get them the help they need. This reinforcement of our total health philosophy inspired us to continue in this direction!
Inspiration Comes in Many Forms
At Montclair Smile Design we are inspired by our patients to continue to give them the best of the best that there is in dentistry. Introduced at this conference was the newest porcelain material, slated to be even stronger than before. Porcelain is what we elect to use in fabricating 99% of our crowns and veneers. One of the greatest things about this is that when stronger material is used we are able to remove LESS of your natural tooth! This is really something to be excited about! Plus, it still looks amazing and natural. Jump up and down, everyone!! This is phenomenal news!
Few Last Bits
Inspiration comes to us in a variety of ways. We think that humor is also on the list of things that inspire!
