I can't imagine how I would work without loupes and a light. So it makes me question how our dental office team members can do their very best work without the same advantages of magnification and direct illumination? In this video I discuss how I transitioned my whole team to dental loupes.

Today I had the challenge of trying to retrieve an implant restoration that was cement-retained, just to identify what implant system it was from. If you have ever had to do this, you know how important it is for patients to remember what dental implant system was placed in their mouth. In this video I will share our system for safeguarding that information.
One of the challenges of complex restorative is transferring the information from a dental wax-up into provisionals. In this video I will share a great technique with a digital caliper to ensure the accuracy of your provisionals.
Often the wax-up for a case actually reduces the size of teeth or the prominence of one or more surfaces of the teeth. The laboratory should send you a reduction matrix. This tool is critical in making sure you can accommodate the reduced tooth size and create adequate space for the new restorative material.
