“By integrating CAD/CAM dentistry with implants, I’ve achieved a new skill set and a fresh perspective.”

Dr. Brent Harris is a graduate of Nova Southeastern College of Dental Medicine who served as a Dental Officer with the U.S. Navy Dental Corps. Since 2005, Dr. Harris has practiced at S.A.H. Dentistry in Saint Lucie West, Fla.

Dr. Harris also facilitates study clubs for dentists using the E4D Dentist system, a complete powder-free chairside system for digital impressioning, designing and fabricating metal-free inlays, onlays, crowns and veneers in the office or through a laboratory.

Here he shares his insight on using the technology and how his practice delivers implant dentistry to its patients.

Q: In the beginning, what drew you to incorporate more implant dentistry into your general practice?

BH: I’ve always been eager to use implants in my practice because in many ways they represent the most predictable form of restorative treatment, and also can be considered one of the best investments a patient can make.

Q: How did you manage the relationship with implant specialists you’d worked with previously?

BH: I continue to enjoy working with select specialists who choose to comprehensively treatment plan cases and perform implant services in a manner that I am comfortable with. It’s important to me that the patient see consistency between my office and the specialist, and that the communication between our offices is timely and thorough.

Q: How did you decide on the implant system you currently use in your practice?

BH: I chose the implant system I work with based on documented success of the system and customer service from representatives and company, and diversity/ease of use of the components.

Q: What kind of tips can you offer fellow general practitioners interested in integrating implants?

BH: It is important to invest in not only a system with a good track record and customer support, but also the necessary training to ensure you are using the system properly and performing optimally for your patients.

By integrating CAD/CAM dentistry with implants, I’ve achieved a new skill set and a fresh perspective. It has redefined my ambitions and helped me identify the potential for new treatment options and it has increased my confidence and renewed my energy to tackle challenging projects.
