Chairside Live tackles the challenges that dentists face every day and discusses the latest advances in dentistry with top clinicians and industry leaders.
Patient Hygiene for Full Arch Implant Restorations
Full-time clinician Dr. Thomas Jackson opened his practice in the Chicago area in 2004. As a periodontist and prosthodontist, he noticed that the full-arch prostheses he provided patients were very difficult to clean, particularly where significant amounts of tissue were replaced. The desire to make proper oral hygiene easier for his patients led to the development of a unique, patent-pending product. In this episode, you will learn the steps Dr. Jackson took to go from idea to invention and get his advice on what to do with your ideas and how to make them reality.
Dr. David Galler
As President of the American Academy of Clear Aligners, Dr. David Galler is among the top 1% of Invisalign providers and is responsible for several innovations in the aligner field. In this episode, Dr. Galler discusses aligner therapy in the general practice, a better way to do interproximal reduction, and which cases are appropriate to keep and which should be sent to an orthodontist. He also shares why he loves teaching, how he ensures students gets the most out of their instruction and his secret to building an organization with an engaged, loyal membership.
Dr. Gerald Niznick
Barron’s magazine called Dr. Gerald Niznick the “godfather of American implant dentistry” while others have referred to this controversial prosthodontist/entrepreneur in less flattering terms. But with over 30 patents and some of the most enduring implant designs to his credit, there is no question about his significant contributions to the field. In this very special episode, Dr. Niznick discusses his favorite inventions, provides advice for young dentists and shares his predictions for the future of implant dentistry. Whether you are an implant novice or an expert with decades of experience, there are sure to be pearls of wisdom for you in this fast-paced discussion.
Dr. Stephanie Tilley
Dr. Stephanie Tilley of Pensacola, Florida, worked as an associate for years before building an office and opening her own practice from scratch. Now, twenty-three years later, Dr. Tilley has a thriving practice, offering a wide range of restorative, esthetic and implant treatment options. In this episode, Dr. Tilley discusses how she determines what services to add to her practice and the marketing that has worked best. She also discusses the concept of the “Super GP” and how it helps practice growth.
Dr. Chad Duplantis
Dr. Chad Duplantis of Fort Worth, Texas, was an early adopter of chairside CAD/CAM and experienced the pitfalls that came with the developing technology. He stepped back from in-office milling before embracing it again in 2012. In this episode, Dr. Duplantis discusses which restorations to mill in house and which to send to your dental lab. He also talks about his unique approach to minimally invasive dentistry, the importance of retentive preparations, bonding and cementation, and what led to “DINK” (Dentists in the Know), a popular Facebook page that he co-founded.
Dr. Kevin Suzuki
Dr. Kevin Suzuki practices periodontics and implant dentistry at Puget Sound Periodontics in Seattle. In this rapid-fire episode, Dr. Suzuki provides a strategy for diagnosing and treating peri-implant disease and discusses when to tackle issues alone and when it may be time to call in a surgical colleague. He also shares tips on periodontal maintenance, handling soft tissue inflammation and working with abnormal bone remodeling. Additional topics include implant design, cement- vs. screw-retained implants, the use of lasers and probing around implants.
