Education

We don’t just love dentistry…we also love to teach it!  Dr. Howell and Dr. Farley have lectured nationally and internationally on a variety of topics, provide quarterly lectures in Arizona for our colleagues, maintain a study club to help general dentists in town get better with prosthodontic procedures, and have created an online platform for learning the ins and outs of digital dentistry.

Here are some of the topics on which we have lectured:

  • Immediate-load hybrids
  • Dentures
  • Implant identification
  • Implant complications
  • 3D printing in the Dental Office
  • Digital Dentures
  • Digital Hybrids
  • Advanced Surgical Guides

TO BE CLEAR, WE HAVE FOUR EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES FOR DENTISTS, BOTH LOCAL AND WORLD-WIDE

1] ADVANCES IN PROSTHODONTICS NEWSLETTER

Quarterly, we send out our newsletter, Advances in Prosthodontics, to dental offices in the valley. If you don’t get this, email Wendy ([email protected]) or download it here (click images to download PDFs).

2] LOCAL STUDY CLUB

This is meant to be a smaller group where attendees bring prosthodontic cases from their own practice.  We will discuss the cases as a group to help 1) the doctor who brought the case and 2) everyone else to understand how to successfully get through the case.  This is limited to 15 people and is by registration.  Cost to join (when we have openings) is $850.  You can inquire about joining by reaching out via [email protected] or call (480) 832-1375.

3] LOCAL LECTURE SERIES

We have a quarterly lecture that is open to everyone.  We are not limited and the admission is free.  Our first lecture was on digital dentistry and gave a very comprehensive overview on what is possible with digital dentistry today.  Our next lecture is February 28th and will cover implant overdentures.  If you have any questions about successfully getting patients into implant-assisted overdentures, you will benefit from joining us for free knowledge and food.  To register, email at [email protected] or call (480) 832-1375.

4] ONLINE RESOURCE FOR DIGITAL DENTISTRY

Dr. Howell and Dr. Farley have been creating web resources for dentists since they were in residency and created whatimplantisthat.com.  We recently launched digitaldds.com, an online platform for video tutorials/courses that cover a wide array of digital dentistry topics.  Some of the content is paid and some free.  Visit and register for free to start learning more about digital dentistry.

5] LIVE COURSES

About once a month, you can find one or both of us lecturing in person somewhere.

One of the courses We are most passionate about is Digital Hybrids.  We have been refining over many years our digital workflows to provide a better, more efficient, and quicker experience for our patients undergoing this treatment.  We have acquired unique equipment in our office and have an in-house technician to provide almost every step in the fabrication right here under our supervision.  We teach these workflows, including hands-on software training with exocad.

Here is our schedule of upcoming events.  Click through to register.  Hope to see you there!

For 1-3 units, the workflow is very straightforward and easy, but many want to do more than the software can do.

3/29-3/30Scottsdale, AZDigital DenturesDr. Nate Farley and Dr. Valerie McMillan – New combined online and live course: Why travel far simply to sit and listen to a presentation?

Our course includes 11 hours of online video based material plus 12 hours of interactive material at the course.
4/5-4/6Gilbert, AZDigital HybridsDr. Kent Howell and Dr. Nate Farley – Full arch implant rehabilitations require precision, attention to detail, and efficiency in order to pull them off accurately with longevity.

Are patients frustrated when they bust teeth off their new and expensive prosthesis? Come join us for a 2 full day immersion in full arch treatment planning and execution of these prostheses.
