Achieving quality and precision with consistency is something which challenges every dentist. As much as materials and technology have improved the longevity and predictability in dentistry, success itself still comes down to the decision making and skill set of the clinician, both of which can be improved simply by using higher magnification. This presentation is targeted at general practitioners and non-microscope users and will take you on a journey to consider your current means to providing excellence and precision. It will walk you through the benefits, challenges of implementing a dental operating microscope, a tool that can dramatically improve your efficiency, workflow and the outcomes of treatment that can be expected.
