Michael Frazis on the challenges and risks of doing preps

By Chantelle Anink on 09/12/2021 11:54:38 AM

"When you learn how to do a single crown right you will instantly become a better dentist," said Dr Michael Frazis. "Then when you are ready to scale up to doing 2, 3 - or even a full arch - you won’t bring the mistakes that might have been hidden in your technique or strategy of doing that single crown."

Dr Michael Frazis is one of RipeGlobal's most popular educators in the Fellowship in Restorative Dentistry. He is an expert in restorative implant and digital dentistry.

"Time doesn’t multiply evenly when you increase the number of crowns you work on in one sitting," he added. "It’s more efficient. The teeth sit neater and you can achieve a more aesthetic outcome when you work on multiple crowns at one time.

However if you have made an oversight in every crown - if there is one aspect of your otherwise faultless regime of doing crowns - then it does take the amount of time to repair one crown and multiply it by the number of crowns you have just built - which is a long time and can itself present a whole can of wormy issues."

How insurance works. Or doesn’t work.

By Dr. Lincoln Harris on 15/03/2016 9:53:46 AM

Insurance is a promise

Every year, customers give insurance companies an amount of money in exchange for the peace of mind that if a certain event happens in the future, the insurance company will cover the cost of that event.
