This recorded lecture will look frankly and controversially at the way our industry operates and the kind of patients many dentists feel pressured to treat. What will be the affect long term of treating the “insta” patient? Is cosmetic dentistry a good approach at all? Should we be treating new patients with large irreversible modalities when vast numbers of patients in our own practices experience slow dental occlusal/aesthetic breakdown that often goes unnoticed?
So much dentistry is carried out way too late by this time, too much damage is done for many patients to be able to afford the optimal solutions. Arguably no patient should ever need a full mouth rehabilitation, if enough dentists had the confidence to identify communicate and treat patients sooner. This is today, highly relevant as dentistry is about to change dramatically after Covid 19.
Prevention should mean far more than just prevention of tooth decay and periodontal disease. It should also be about prevention of more expensive reconstructive treatments later in life.
