On Oct 6th Dr Efird traveled to Atlanta for continuing education. He attended a program entitled “Interdisciplinary Management of Esthetic Dilemmas”. The course was led by Dr Frank Spear of Spear Education. Dr Spear is a world renowned dentist who lectures on advanced dental treatment topics. While at this course Dr Efird gained knowledge on evaluating facial development problems, profile imbalances and esthetic issues. Patients who seek treatment for these types of issues may be treated with jaw surgery or a combination of orthodontics, gum surgery and restorative care to achieve the desired esthetic result. This course was designed to help dentists treatment plan their patients for the best possible outcomes using the latest in modern dental techniques and advancements.
Also during the course Dr Efird was introduced to a new video patient education system that we will begin using at our offices and ultimately incorporate into our web site as a resource library for patients. The goal of this education system is to help patients better understand how to maintain their oral health as well as understand any treatment they may require.
We at Carolina Mountain Dental are grateful to all the patients who entrust their dental care to us and we remain committed to continually advancing our knowledge, skills and services to better serve you.
