Why You Should Consider Furthering Your Education | New York, NY

Dental ContinuumThere are times when we become restless in our careers and are looking for more. Luckily, in the dental profession, there is always something new to learn. So, why not go back to school and feed that thirst for knowledge you have been craving? The Dental College at New York University College of Dentistry’s state of the art Rosenthal Institute is the perfect opportunity to provide you and your team with a completely unique outlook on dentistry. The dental college in New York not only allows individuals to experience hands-on dental courses but arranges for the most professional guest speakers and mentors to advise individuals on various aspects of dentistry.

According to Dr. Dean Vafiadis, “”As you know, for many years I was practicing in NY City as a prosthodontist. I always held true to prosthetic principles of occlusion, aesthetics and personal care for my patients. After taking dental college courses my whole practice has made a complete 180-degree turn. What you have shown is that the level of what we do as dentists is usually accepted as good and okay. Now our dentistry can be spectacular. The cases that I did many years ago were long-lasting and looked just okay. Today all our cases are documented and are no less than amazing. Our referral base has tripled since we implemented your techniques and our patients are sending us more and more new patients.”

Using Visual Technology for Case Presentations | Northridge Dentist

One of the most critical skills a dental professional must learn is to be compassionate to their patient’s dental fears or hesitations when it comes to dealing with necessary dental procedures. They are unaware of what is going on inside their mouth – all they know is that there is pain in there somewhere and they would like you to fix it. It is your job to put their minds at ease in the most basic way possible. One of these ways is to SHOW them what is going to happen through the use of visuals. If they can see what is going to happen and you address all of their questions and concerns, the procedure will go much smoother than if you explain things with technical jargon.

Dr. Albert Neff, Senior Clinical Instructor for Aesthetic Advantage in New York, NY has published the following article on the use of digital photography for case presentations.

“Case presentations that use visual technology can become the integral component of success for the modern-day practice. Our patients must be able to clearly see their existing conditions, understand treatment recommendations, and visualize the anticipated results before they can accept and approve treatment. Historically, dentists have used complicated dental terminology, x-rays, and study models to communicate a proposed treatment plan. Patients were expected to accept recommendations without being able to visualize the anticipated results. Patients often left the dental office confused about treatment recommendations and uncertain about the final outcome.”
