May 2018 Study Club

Evolution of Digital Dentistry: Focus on Full Mouth Restorations

With summer just around the corner, it was about time for another study club! This past week Dr. Schulter and his son, Drew Schulter of Cagenix, spoke about the importance of the digital dentistry. Digital dentistry has always been an exciting frontier for both the clinician and laboratory technician. The continued expansion of the scanning process and various design and fabrication techniques has created challenge in understanding the best practices and finding pathways for success.

We are so happy to host our study clubs and it is always a treat to mingle with colleagues in the dental field. This is a great way for dentists to receive continuing education credit while enjoying a delicious meal and meeting with new and old friends!


February 2018 Study Club

"The Evolution of Implant Design and Modern Day Digital Workflow"

We rang in 2018 with a great study club! With close to 100 doctors, our February study club was a great start to the new year and the perfect way for some of our doctors to mingle and talk about new technologies in dentistry. This quarter's topic was "The Evolution of Implant Design and Modern Day Digital Workflow". A couple of the main learning objectives were to understand the development of implant surfaces and also learn about digital workflows from treatment planning to final restoration.

Our implant manufacturer BioHorizons brought in two speakers, Dr. Mark Ferguson and Dr. Stuart Nicholson, both with an extensive background in product development and digital dentistry.

We are so happy to share new technologies with dental professionals in the Mid-South and can't wait for our May study club. See you then!

February 2017 Study Club

"Becoming a Digital Dentist"

Starting 2017 off with a bang! Every few months, the Dental Implant Aesthetic Center hosts a study club for dental professionals in the Memphis region. Each meeting hosts a different speaker who demonstrates a topic related to our profession. Study club meetings are a fun and interesting way for our referring doctors and colleagues to chat over dinner and engage in a topic related to the dental field. Our February study club was one of the most attended study clubs we have hosted. Dr. Kyle Fagala spoke on the topic of "Becoming a Digital Dentist" and how to market to our patients in the digital world. Dr. Fagala is an Orthodontist with offices in Collierville and Germantown. Along with his "day job", Dr. Fagala also owns and operates his own marketing agency, Neon Canvas. With social websites growing faster than ever, being able to reach our patients through the digital world is an important, yet daunting task. With Dr. Fagala's advice, we have launched a new website design and hope to continue reaching out our patients in the world of technology!
