                              Leadership training has always been a significant hallmark of education at the Pankey Institute. A discussion of Resilient Leadership will open a door to evaluating a new way to see, think and lead in your practice, family, community and life.

                              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.

                              The lens through which we see others is an essential element of leadership. Our lens may include filters of impatience, and judgment, and assumptions about what we think we know. We all have our blind spots. But our lens may also include compassion, and curiosity, and understanding.

                              An Outward Mindset will help you to take a step back and look at your filters, not just through them. You can learn to become more effective in all your relationships; with your patients, your team, and your family and friends. The way to change behaviors and change results is to start with a change in mindset.
