One of the greatest challenges when transitioning to Complete Care Dentistry is the creation of an organized process from the time a patient first calls the practice, to the delivery of optimum restorative dentistry. In order for this to happen, not only must the dentist’s technical abilities grow, but so must the organizational, managerial and communication of the entire team.
This course is designed so that the clinical and business team come home with a unified vision of how to schedule appointments, the specific roles of each team member in the new patient examination process, the verbal skills to communicate with patients and a programmed approach to case presentation.

One of the most important and obvious differences between implants and teeth is the lack of the Periodontal Ligament (PDL). The PDL contains mechanoreceptors that help determine the amount of force being applied to a tooth. This helps act as a safety mechanism for the tooth, so that it is not overloaded with stress.
I want to spend a few minutes today discussing the benefits of utilizing a Lucia Jig to make a differential diagnosis. All right. Here's what I mean by that. Many times, you're going to have patients that come in the door, and they're going to be complaining about TMJ pain.
