What I want to do more of but need guidance

  • Surgeries
    • Perio
    • Implant
    • More complex extractions
  • Molar Endo
    • I like it but want to get more efficient at it
  • Laser dentistry
  • Treatment planning
    • I think there is always things to learn and something I’m not seeing
  • Peds:
    • SSC / Pulpotomies

    • Invisalign type of stuff

I personally think I can get better at everything.  I have confidence in most things more look to be more proficient.  Taking hands on CE or CE in general will help.  My goals are on Fridays to try and get some online CE /Webinars in to build more on my education to provide for our patients.  I think getting involved with some invsalign or clear tray ortho can help appeal to the adult / younger generation looking for this type of work.
