Every area of health care continues to move forward at a dizzying pace, and dentistry is no different. It’s not just required by every state for dentists to continue their education beyond dental school, it’s also important for clinicians to stay on top of new trends, research and products. Patients benefit when their dentist has up-to-the-minute knowledge in the areas of preventive care, diagnostic tools and treatments.
Kettenbach understands how important continuing education is. The company, with partner Catapult Education, regularly offers dentists opportunities to learn about topics such as restorative dentistry, prosthetic dentistry, managing obstructive sleep apnea, implant dentistry, dental materials and more from leaders in the dental field. Catapult’s tagline is “ Success begins with great CE.”
Currently Kettenbach has free on-demand webinars available for viewing. Depending on the course, the content may be appropriate for not only dentists, but also hygienists and dental assistants.
Current choices include:
- “Your Impression Is Distorted” with Dr. Tony Tomaro. This session covers different clinical procedures and which type of impression materials are best for that procedure. Tomaro spent decades in private practice, and is also a published author and a consultant for dental laboratories and manufacturers.
- “Intro to Dental Sleep Medicine” with Dr. Mayoor Patel, a board member with American Academy of Craniofacial Pain and the British Society of Dental Sleep Medicine. This session covers how to identify a patient who may have a sleep breathing disorder and the benefits of incorporating dental sleep medicine in your practice.
- “Minimally Invasive Periodontal Therapies” with Dr. Mark Malterud, who practices General and Family dentistry in St. Paul and is an adjunct faculty member of the University of Minnesota Continuing Dental Education Department. Malterud covers procedures that can be utilized in their offices to treat periodontal disease and to maintain gingival health.
