Dare to Dream ... Big!
March 15, 2021
 
“Operating the Simodont was a fascinating experience. Having never operated a VR device, I was impressed with how quickly I was able to navigate the interface. The handpiece, mirror, burs, and view are so intuitive and accurate to the clinical setting. Also, the feel of tooth structure (enamel and dentin) during preparation is surprisingly authentic. From a training and testing perspective, I feel that the white virtual tooth representation enhances shadows and imperfections that may not be obvious on an actual tooth. This view caused me to critique my effort and attempt to improve the result organically.”
 
-Tom McDonald, D.M.D.

Financial Performance is tied to Hand Skills
April 5, 2021
 

Financial performance in a dental practice is fundamentally tied to productivity of the dental practitioners. Practice revenue is largely driven by dental procedures, both the type of and volume, in conjunction with the fees collected. Those in practice fundamentally realize this relationship as most practice performance metrics are built around production/net production/ and collections.

Failure to meet these goals will oftentimes carry significant financial consequences for a practitioner.   Pay decreases, missed bonuses, and even business failure can result.

The Only Constant in Life is Change!
April 19, 2021
 

Dental education, as well as the dental profession, are equally subject to the vagaries of the inevitability of change. We should welcome this change as an opportunity to improve all that we do and adjust our course accordingly.

Begin with the end in mind
May 8, 2021
 

You’re in high school and you have figured out what you want to do with your life. Like me, you might be around 14, and you have just announced to your mom or dad or anyone who will listen – “I am going to be a dentist!” Not, “I want,” you stated, “I am.” What is the difference, you wonder? The difference is HUMUNGOUS! I want implies you are “thinking about it,” but there is still hesitation in that statement. I am is definitive. It is on point, and it’s on purpose. Congratulations! You now have the end in mind! Now, all you need to do is figure out how to get there!

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you
May 14, 2021
 
Many people may not like to be challenged. Maybe for them, it equates to something they perceive as being hard, unpleasant, or extra work. But every challenge is an opportunity to grow, to get better, to be better.

Assessment Drives Instruction
May 24, 2021
 
As an educator I firmly believe that assessment drives instruction. I will take that one step further to say that assessment drives the curriculum. I would encourage dental schools to take advantage of the implementation of the INDBE, to realign their curriculum to match the assessment, thus improving the clinical knowledge and performance of their graduates.

Multimodal Learning
Virtual Haptic Simulators ... Where is the Research?
May 24, 2021
 
Skepticism to change or adopt new technology is fueled primarily by a lack of understanding, public misinformation and personal agendas. Promethean Dental Systems has compiled a research library that proves the Simodont should be in simulation labs beside the Manikin. Together they can elevate dental education as a part of a multimodal learning approach that increases the pace and depth of learning, while providing fair standards, objective assessments, real-time access to data and analytics.
