|The soft tissue-restorative interface is where the artistry of the dental technician meets the clinical skill of the restorative dentist. The challenge for the clinician lies in managing the soft tissue frame, the essence of restorative dentistry. This compelling clinical monograph outlines how to manage the soft tissue in a practical manner, whether providing patients with tooth-borne or implant-supported restorations. The author provides step-by-step instructions for each stage of therapy so that restorative dentists can understand how to manage the soft tissue frame, minimize trauma, and ensure a healthy and esthetic treatment outcome. Multiple cases are followed throughout the book, with individual chapters focusing on those portions of the case that illustrate the concepts elucidated in the chapter. Employing strict evidence-based principles, the author provides clinical tools for effective soft tissue management that will prevail even as technology in dentistry continues to evolve.
'As a Diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontics, My goal is to bring together the art, science, and clinical skills of an experienced prosthodontist to provide patients with the highest standard of dental care. While my practice focuses on Restorative and Implant Dentistry, we are proud to continue and provide the highest level of general dentistry services to our patients and their families. I am proud to say that my profession is my passion, and my vision puts the patient at the center, with the goal of providing superior dental care in a unique atmosphere.
Having taught for many years at the University Of Washington School Of Dentistry, my research is mainly clinical and focuses on esthetics and metal-free restorations, implants, and computer assisted design/computer assisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) dental technology.
Having given more than 400 presentations and continuing dental education courses, I had the honor and privilege to lecture both nationally and internationally on six continents on esthetic and implant dentistry and CAD/CAM dental technology.
I have had the privilege to practice dentistry since 1991. I am a graduate of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel. I received my certificate in Prosthodontics at the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry, where I also completed a fellowship in implants and esthetics, and a Masters degree.
