                              My objective is to help everyone understand that Pankey’s cross of life requires us to   be healthy and fit. We are in a physically demanding profession that puts stress on our neck, shoulders, back, legs, forearms, wrist and fingers along with our brain. We need to keep our body healthy and fit to last a lifetime in our profession. There is a triad that needs to be followed to be healthy and fit for the long haul.

                              We need to

                              1) workout in some way to move and strengthen our core muscles,

                              2) Eat a properly balanced diet to maximize our energy and immune system and

                              3) Sleep the right amount to replenish the chemicals and get the rest we need to be 100% in our life as a dentist.

                              Dr. David Bloom

                              Shade matching a single anterior tooth provides challenge for even a skilled dentist and technician. The eLab protocol uses calibrated polarized images to provide quantitative values of shade. The eLab protocol will be presented and will describe image acquisition and calibration and how the technician can use this information to aid in both fabrication and verification of the final restoration.

                              Understand how dental microscopes can vastly enhance dentistry.  Precision Based Restorative Outcomes are becoming more critical in the growth of digital dental technology and the outcome of accuracy of prep design will be presented.  The incorporation of dental microscopy into a restorative practice will be introduced building high value to the practice, patients, and overall ergonomics.
