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
- 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. The second lecture discussed overdentures, with tips and tricks to make them more predictable. Our next lecture is June 20th and will cover dentures. 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 used to find one or both of us lecturing in person somewhere.
One of the courses we were 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 would teach these workflows, including hands-on software training with exocad. We also taught on digital dentures, advanced surgical guides, and basic CAD/CAM.
We are taking a break from live courses for a while to focus on our practice and our families. Maybe one day, we’ll be back at it. If you are super interested in learning these things, let us know and maybe we can arrange something on the side!
