Smarter Not Harder Dr. Jyme Charette
If the challenges of prosthodontics have taught me anything, it’s how to be resourceful. Throughout my residency, I was committed to adding tools to my tool box that would enhance my daily experience as a practitioner; tools that would make procedures less frustrating, faster, and more fun for me and my patients.
As a practicing prosthodontist, I have continued to be creative in my approaches in order to be more efficient, maximize chair time, minimize the number of appointments for my patients, and make my life as easy as possible.
Some examples I’ll cover in this course to help you work smarter not harder include: single appointment master denture records, time saving tricks for provisional fabrication and removal, preservation of provisional implant models for definitive use saving time and money, and many more. I hope you’ll also share some of your tips and tricks with your fellow LDS members too!
