Dr. Joyce Bassett - Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry

As a courtesy to our group, Dr. Bassett will also present a brand-new lecture that she has been working on. Details are below:

Things That Go Wrong, Even When You Do Everything Right

This innovative, fast-paced course will explore frequently seen problems that occur during restorative treatment, showcasing a variety of modes of failures. She will explore state of the art, real-time digital design and link 3D prosthetic planning with fundamental smile design principles. You will learn systematic techniques to treat every aspect and ensure aesthetics that are BUILT TO LAST.

These techniques can be used to both prevent and remedy these failures. While materials are often considered the cause of clinical failures, more often the failure is a result of function, incomplete planning, decision-making, and execution. When a clinical failure occurs, there is often conflict and blaming between the dentist, patient, and laboratory technician. She will cover communication techniques that offer realistic patient expectations. Proven conflict resolution techniques to address these issues will be proposed, as well as a checklist for careful patient and laboratory communication. There is something for everyone to learn.

There are no unintended consequences, only situations that were not well thought out.

Learning Objectives:

-Master the usage of systemized techniques to treat simple to complex cases with veneers, crowns and implants

-Obtain the knowledge of real-time digital smile design principles for both composite Provisionals and porcelain

-Integrate sound occlusal principles to create synergy between form and function.

Learning Outcomes...Participants will leave this presentation with:

-A proven step by step approach to identify and address difficult clinical situations

-Master conflict resolution techniques with usage of proper verbiage and checklists

-Identify which adhesives and restorative materials work the best for maximum predictability

Highly satisfied with my child's ortho procedure. The entire process has been seamless even with the pandemic. The website and patient portal is user friendly, but should you need to call the office for any reason, a staff member always answers in a friendly manner.  The Ambridge office is stunning, it's like waking into a super hero museum.  Everybody's favorite super hero can be found.  Dr. Spokane has a great chair side manner, upbeat and friendly.  My child was nervous at first but his fear quickly went away with the super comfortable atmosphere.  I recommend Dr. Spokane to all my friends and family.
