Los Angeles, CA — Following attendance at a recent custom dental consulting and practice management seminar, Dr. Michael Fulbright and his Los Angeles cosmetic dentistry practice say one of the most important factors in providing consistently high quality patient care is keeping up to date with continued education. Dr. Fulbright says staying informed about the latest techniques and technology in dentistry is essential for helping patients get the treatment they need and deserve. He says participation in regular seminars and annual conferences sharpens a dentist’s skills and lets them maintain the highest level of commitment to their patients.
As a cosmetic dentist in Torrance, Dr. Fulbright is currently presenting cases to receive accreditation status from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), one of the highest levels of membership in the AACD requiring a selective and extensive evaluation process that distinguishes dentists as elite in cosmetic dentistry. Accreditation from the AACD encourages further education and professional interaction with other dentists to help promote the safe and effective practice of cosmetic dental procedures and treatment. Having already passed the written portion of the accreditation process, Dr. Fulbright says he is honored to be in consideration for the distinction and hopes it continues to motivate his pursuit of advanced treatment and excellent results for his patients in procedures such as dental implants or porcelain veneers in Los Angeles.
With the 28th Annual AACD Scientific Session approaching in May at the Gaylord National in Washington, DC, Dr. Fulbright says continued education and good practice involves active participation in the dental community and attendance at regular meetings to keep skills fresh and stay on top of the latest developments in dental care. Having confirmed his attendance at the event taking place May 2-5, he says he aims to continuously expand his knowledge of dental procedures and technology through conferences like the AACD annual meeting. Dr. Fulbright says he stresses the importance of staying involved in cosmetic dentistry awareness in order to provide the best care to one’s patients.
“I am really looking forward to fine tuning my skills in surgically delivering implants and implant supported dentures this year at the conference. The benefits of being able to deliver these procedures to our patients without a referral to another office is huge. Implants help patients restore their mouth if they are missing a single tooth or provide normal biting function and aesthetics if they are missing all their teeth. It not only changes their smile but literally changes their lives,” says Dr. Fulbright.
Regardless of whether patients are looking for a full smile makeover or a routine cleaning, Dr. Fulbright says choosing a dentist who is active in continued education is an important part of ensuring one receives the proper care and treatment. He says patients should be sure to consult with an experienced and qualified dentist before undergoing any procedure. “The field of dentistry is changing so rapidly. I need to keep up with the latest techniques and use the latest technology to give my patients the best that dentistry has to offer,” he says.
