OCT 20-22, 2017
Dr. David Clark founded the Academy of Microscope Enhanced Dentistry, an international association formed to advance the science and practice of microendodontics, microperiodontics, microprosthodontics and microdentistry. He is a course director at the Newport Coast Oral Facial Institute in Newport Beach, California. He is co-director of Precision Aesthetics Northwest in Tacoma Washington, and an associate member of the American Association of Endodontists. He lectures and gives hands-on seminars internationally on a variety of topics related to microscope-enhanced dentistry. He has developed numerous innovations in the fields of micro dental instrumentation, imaging, and dental operatory design. Dr. Clark has authored several landmark articles about microscope dentistry including Aesthetic Dentistry, Sealants, The Role of Ultrasonics in Three Dimensional Shaping and Restoration of Non Vital Teeth, Micro-Imaging and Practice Management, and Crack Diagnosis.
Dr. Clark is proud to join with CRA (Clinical Research Associates) in The "Update Series" lectures and also to participate in the important research at their world class facility in Provo, Utah.
Dr. Clark is the editor in chief for the 2005 launch of The Journal of Microscope Dentistry. He is one of the pioneers of the microscope in restorative dentistry and was the first to install ceiling tracks to facilitate the use of a microscope in more than one operatory. He recently published a completely new approach to diagnosis and treatment of cracked teeth, based on a new nomenclature and classification system for enamel and dentinal cracks observed at 16x in The Journal of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry. He is also developing new techniques and materials to better restore endodontically treated teeth, including the Endo-Restorative Casting.
Dr. Clark is a 1986 graduate of the University of Washington School of Dentistry.
Dr. Clark will discuss the five epiphanies involved in learning how to use the stereo operating microscope and also the ways in which we can transfer that knowledge and vision into modernizing dentistry.
